MAY 2021 UPDATE: MORE BANDS! MORE INFO! SOLD OUT OF PASSES*!

Hey Fest Friends,

Wanted to sling everyone a quick little update to keep everyone informed on what’s shaking in FEST 19 world. So, scroll down below and remember to sign up for the FEST NEWSLETTER and follow us on FACEBOOK, TWITTER, and INSTAGRAM for updates as we continue to plan out our best year yet for FEST 19 OCT 29th, 30th, and 31st- 2021 in Gainesville, FL.

FEST 19 THREE DAY PASSES ARE SOLD OUT!!!

Fucking crazy right? Well, 2/3rds of folks held onto the passes they purchased before we postponed last year so that love helped tremendously. We also only allowed 3000 three day passes to be sold.

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 venues 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… that is usually late summer. So, sign up for the FEST NEWSLETTER and follow us on all our social media outlets to keep informed on when that will be.
