The Fine Print

VIP parking passes will be sent via email along with other important logistics. One parking pass is included for every (2) tickets sold.
VIP Parking Option - Ticket purchased day of event will not include parking.

All reserved seats will require a full-priced ticket. If you have a toddler who can sit on your lap and does not need a reserved seat, their admission will be free.

Your tickets do not come with a specific reserved seat so if you would like to sit with your group we recommend arriving early with your whole group to claim your seats together. All seats are first-come, first-served and we cannot promise your group can all sit together.

Do not bring your own chairs, umbrellas or tents into the VIP areas. Chairs are provided by the venue.

The VIP tents are equipped with a cash bar. Skip the long lines in the general admission and utilize the bar in your designated VIP area!

The VIP tents have their own separate bathrooms. Skip the lines in the general admission area and utilize the separate restrooms.

Due to traffic congestion that increases throughout the day, we highly recommend VIP ticket holders arrive before 7PM for guaranteed access to VIP parking.
