Early bird tickets, vehicle and RV passes are on sale now and can be purchased online as well as via phone at 1.866.468.3399 (note that phone orders will result in higher service fees). High Sierra has partnered with TicketWeb this year for all ticketing fulfillment, which will enable them to offer more shipping choices as well as a print-at-home option for late night tickets, thus eliminating long will-call lines at the festival.

A limited number of discounted tickets are being offered for $145 and will be available at this price through March 26th or while supplies last. If you are thinking about purchasing an RV pass, please note the info below.

Premium FestivALL packages will be available for purchase on March 19th. These popular packages include four-day festival passes plus access to a VIP area near the Grandstand Stage, Late Night combination wristbands (access to all Late Night shows), and Vehicle or RV Passes plus festival t-shirts, festival posters and drink tickets. This year additional upgrades to the VIP area will be offered including an elevated viewing area, private port-o-johns, free chair massage, and light refreshments during Happy Hour.

As of today, March 16, only a handful of on-site RV Passes were still available for this year’s festival. In response to the need for more RV capacity, the festival has secured an area just across Lee Road from RV Town for overflow RVs. RV Annex is an easy stroll to Fairgrounds Gate 3 and the RV Town showers. This will be "dry camping" as there are no hook-ups on this site, and because the ground is dry in the summer we recommend bringing rugs or something to lay out in front of the entryway to your RV. A limited amount of RV Annex passes are on sale now for $80. Please note that RV Annex passes will not allow you to bring your RV into the Fairgrounds.
