Ticketing + Wristbands

Do I need to buy a ticket for my child?

A ticketed adult may bring up to one child that is 5 years old and under for free with a photocopy of birth certificate or valid passport/ID (born on or after May 2019). To receive the complimentary child’s wristband, the adult and child must check in at the LittleRockers tent outside of 3rd street gate.

All guests 6 and over must have a paid wristband to enter the festival. The LittleRockers wristband is used for safety – in the event that a child gets lost, staff can reunite them with their registered parent. We strongly encourage that all parents register their child.
