FEST PRE-ORDER MERCH
WE ADDED SOME RAD NEW MERCH ITEMS YOU CAN PRE-ORDER THIS YEAR!!!
This is the best way to make sure you get the styles and sizes you need and save time. Your items will be ready and waiting for you at FEST REGISTRATION for you to scoop when you pick up your passes. You will also SAVE MONEY because the prices on all of these pre-orders will go up weekend of FEST so order now while they are cheaper.
FEST 19 THREE DAYS PASSES ARE SOLD OUT!!!
Will there be more three-day passes available?
As we get refund requests we will release those passes and make them available for sale. We will do this every THURSDAY at 4:20PM EST. So check the site each Thursday if you are hunting for a pass. If we have them…that is where and when you can snag one.
Will there be individual tickets for the show I wanna go to?
We usually make these available and sell whatever 10% of the venue capacity will be but in an effort to keep overall capacity low we are planning on only doing this for the showcases at our larger capacity and outside venues. We are still working on these details and usually release these individual tickets when the schedule is available to the public.
Right now we are shooting to have the full schedule and these individual show tickets available sometime in JULY. To make sure you get the heads up, sign up for the FEST NEWSLETTER and follow us on all our social media outlets to keep informed on when that will be.
COME PARTY WITH US THIS SUMMER FOR… THE WARM UP!!!
We are adding a new space to the FEST schedule this year. It’s called Heartwood Soundstage and they have a really rad outside space we are gonna take over for FEST 19!!! But before FEST we feel like it would be nice to blow out the cobwebs and dust off the koozies for some fun in the sun with all our buds.
Check out THE WARM UP…a stacked all day, outside party on August 14th with our FEST buds like Brendan Kelly (from the Lawrence Arms), ZETA, Expert Timing, Palomino Blond, You Vandal, Virginity, and Woolbright.
Capacity will be limited so snag a ticket now and come catch buzz in the sun with us.
FEST AT HOME IN YOUR HOME
FEST AT HOME is a weekly show where we hang out with some of our favorite FEST buds while they catch us up on their lives, share some old stories and play a few songs for us all. We tend to share a few cocktails and opinions on what’s going on in our worlds but overall it’s a good hang out and it’s LIVE so who the fuck knows what will happen.
You can also catch up on the 40+ episodes we ran over the past year on our FEST FACEBOOK PAGE.
And…If you have Amazon Prime you can really support FEST for FREE by subscribing for FREE to FEST AT HOME on TWITCH! You will not only get updates and have a rad platform to enjoy FEST AT HOME but…it helps us get some love from TWITCH and hopefully be able to do more rad content!!!
Follow FEST on our social media outlets to get weekly updates on who will be hanging out on this show.
WE UPDATED OUR FAQ SECTION
As we plan FEST 19 you have questions. We hear ya loud and clear and are working really hard to get you the answers you need to plan your trip to Gainesville for FEST 19. However, some of this stuff requires time to figure out so please check the FAQ section and we will update it as we get more info. So if you have questions check here and hopefully we got an answer for ya!
Thanks again everyone. We can’t thank you all enough for the love, support and patience you have given all of the FEST crew over the last year. We are still working very hard and keeping a great open communication with our city leaders and all the FEST venues to make FEST 19 the bestest and safest we can be. We remind you all that if you have not gotten your COVID-19 vaccine please do so when you can. Anyone 16 and older can get it for FREE in the states. We are also hoping all our friends overseas will be able to get theirs as well so they can too be safe from COVID and hopefully be able to FEST with us once again. We miss you all something terrible and can’t wait to cheers, hug, and sing along with everyone again. Til then, continue to look out for yourself and each other. Soak up some sunshine and crack open a few while we wait.
Tony and the FEST crew
