Frequently Asked Questions

TICKETING + PASSES

How much are tickets?

Depending on when you buy your ticket, you can get a 5-day pass as low as $50. Check out the TICKET INFO page for all of the details. The Treefort Golden Rule is to buy as early as possible!

What if I just want to see one band?

You can try to get a walk-up ticket, but we recommend you get to the venue super early (like before doors open), if you leave and then return and there’s a line, you must wait in line to enter as you are treated as a GA wristband holder for that venue on that day.

Getting a 5-Day wristband to Treefort 2018 is the BEST WAY to see all the music and other events we have to offer.

Can I go for just one day?

Yes, single tickets may be available March 1, 2018 if we don’t sell out in advance.

Can I go to just one venue?

Yes, however there will only be a very few walk-up tickets available at select venues. Getting a 5-Day wristband to Treefort 2018 is the BEST WAY to see all the music and other events we have to offer, and buying your wristband early is the best way to get it at an affordable price!

How much are single venue tickets?

It varies, more information will be available on March 1, 2018

What’s the secret for skipping lines?

Buy a ZIPLINE Pass.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to Treefort?

The Treefort Main Stage is an All Ages venue. Treefort shows in other clubs, venues, and bars are subject to all legally-enforced age restrictions, closing hours, and curfews. When all venues are announced specific age requirements will be listed for each venue. We do our best to include a variety of programming in venues to accommodate fans of all ages
