What kind of ADA Accommodations will be available?

Within the Festival:
The festival grounds are wheel chair accessible but please be aware that this is a large venue with distance between the 2 stages and is an outdoor festival. Therefore, some travel will be over natural terrain. If it should rain, there will be mud in some places. We do not provide personal care. Please plan ahead and bring attendants if needed. In addition, the festival does not provide wheelchairs for rent or loan. Please make arrangements beforehand if you should need a wheelchair at the festival. Wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, and three/four-wheeled scooters are all permitted for Patrons with mobility disabilities. There is an ADA viewing platform with shade available in our Main Stage viewing area. This platform is reserved at all times for people with mobility impairments plus one companion. Please note this area has limited capacity and is available first come, first served.
ADA restrooms are also available throughout the venue. The Tack Room VIP Lounge area is accessible with a ramp.

A patron requiring insulin is allowed to bring his or her medically necessary materials and medications. Out of concern for the festival staff who handle the trash, please dispose of your medical waste and syringes in the proper disposal located in the First Aid area of the festival. Please do not dispose of these items in other trash bins at the festival. If you should need to keep any medication refrigerated, please visit our First Aid area for assistance.

Please call FrontGate Tickets at 888.512.SHOW (7469) and they will be able to assist you with your ticket order or account information!

WRISTBANDS

When will I receive my wristbands?

Wristbands will be shipped out approximately 6 weeks prior to the festival date. If you chose Will Call pickup, then you will have to come to the box office when you arrive on-site at the festival to receive your wristbands!

What happens if I lose or break my wristband prior to the festival?

Don’t lose or break it. Wristbands that have been tampered with will be void and lost wristbands cannot be replaced for any reason.

Can I slide my wristband off and give it to my friend to use?

No, your wristband needs to be on tight enough that it does not slide off and is good for just you only.

Will I receive my camping pass along with my festival pass?

If you ordered it together, it will come in one package. If you ordered camping at a separate time, your tickets will come in a separate delivery.

I saw someone selling print at home tickets. Are they legit?

Nope, there are no print at home options for this show. Be really careful buying anywhere except the official Tickets Today website. We see far too many forgeries and bad tickets and they will not get you in to the Festival.

Are the passes good for all 3 days of the festival?

Yes! We don't sell single-day passes for Faster Horses.

Cashless

How do I sign up for Cashless?

Just visit our Register Wristband page, click to register and it'll walk you through the steps to register your wristband and opt-in to sign up for Cashless program.

Do I have to sign up for Cashless?

No. Although Registering your wristband is required, cashless is not. That being said, we highly encourage it as it will make your life much easier while at Faster Horses. With cashless, your credit card is securely attached to your wrist.

Will I need to bring any other forms of payment with me?

Yes. We would recommend bringing some cash and/or a credit/debit card with you to Faster Horses just in case the vendor you choose to shop with is one of the few that doesn’t accept cashless or in the very unlikely event of an issue with the cashless system.

How does this work? Do I have to deposit money into an account or does it charge directly to my card?

With cashless at Faster Horses, there is no need to load any money onto your wristband as you might have experienced at some other events. When you register for the cashless option on your wristband you will securely link your credit or debit card with the wristband. So when you pay for something with your wristband, it will be just like swiping your card at a store.

If I lose my wristband, will someone be able to use it to purchase items?

No. Even though you will swipe your wristband to pay for items, you still have to punch in your PIN number for a transaction to take place. As long as you don't give out your PIN number, your wristband is safe and cannot be used for cashless purposes by anyone else.

I already registered for cashless but need to edit my credit card info, how do I do that?

Go to our Register Wristband page and enter your wristband number again. It'll then ask you for the email you used when you registered.... enter that email address. Your account information will then appear and you may edit as needed.

Will I be able to pay for food and drinks with my wristband?

Yes. Most food vendors on-site will accept cashless as a form of payment. That being said, we still recommend bringing cash and/or a card with you as a few food vendors, roaming food/drink carts, and craft merchants might not accept cashless.

Will I be able to pay for Faster Horses merchandise with my wristband?

Yes. We will accept the cashless payment option for merchandise at the festival!

Will there be ATMs on-site at the festival?

Yes. These will be located around the grounds. Specific locations will be notated in the Faster Horses mobile app.

If I forget to register my wristband, can I do it on-site at the festival?

Yes. You may register your wristband on-site at any of the Guest Service booths located around the festival site. You can also always register your wristband by going to our Register Wristband page at any point before or during the festival!

CAMPING

Are camping prices per person or per campsite? Is it for the whole weekend?

All camping prices listed are per campsite (not per person) and good for the whole weekend.

Can I bring a golf cart with me?

No, due to safety reasons and traffic, we cannot allow golf carts in the campgrounds.

I'm staying at one campground and have friends staying a different campground. Can I go visit them?

Yes, you can go visit your friends at any time.

Can I use a generator at my campsite?

You can in any campground EXCEPT Tent City in Infield.

Campsites are very close together, so we request that all Festival campers be considerate of their camping neighbors when utilizing a generator. To avoid excessive amounts of carbon monoxide and noise, please “pipe up” internal generators. This will allow the exhaust to be released above the RV and not into your neighbors camping area. If you are utilizing a free-standing generator, a “muffler box” would contain the noise and direct exhaust away from campers. Quiet generators are preferred by your fellow campers. Generators are the responsibility of their owners and should not interfere with surrounding campers. Ventilator kits preferred.

Is alcohol allowed in the campgrounds?

As long as you are of age, alcohol is permitted within the confines of your individual campsite. No open containers or alcohol consumption will be allowed in the public areas or on the roads.

I want to camp next to my friends. Can you reserve a spot?

Reserved camping sites are sold online. If you want to be together, you must purchase camping together.

Can I camp if I do not have a festival pass to Faster Horses?

No. Anyone planning to camp will also need to purchase a festival pass in order to enter the campgrounds.

Is there a convenience store available?

Yes there is. The store has a wide variety of soft drinks & snacks, ice, as well as some of those little necessities you may have forgotten, such as: sunscreen, basic toiletries, and the like. The General Store is located on the Infield campground.

How many people am I allowed to have at my campsite?

As many people that can comfortably fit on your campsite (with the exception of VIP).

Can I have a campfire?

If you want to have a campfire you must bring your own fire ring.

Can I bring my dog?

No. Not because we don’t like them (we're all animal lovers here), but it's cruel and unfair to the pet to leave it alone in the campground or parking lot, locked up or in a car or tent where it may suffer from extreme heat. When we see a pet in a car or running around the camp ground unattended, we will alert the authorities and your vehicle may be entered and your pet taken to a shelter for its own welfare. You may be subject to prosecution for cruelty to animals.

Service Animals are permitted.

What do I do with my car if I plan to stay with friends who are camping?

You must purchase an overnight parking pass and are good for the entire weekend of the festival.

How many tents can I have on my campsite?

As many as you wish as long as it all fits within your camping space.

Can I have a vehicle on my campsite and what is the parking policy in the campgrounds?

Our general rule is one steering-wheel per campsite (example: a self-driving camping unit or car). Any additional vehicles would need to have a Companion/Overnight parking pass. Buy your parking pass early and save! Prices will increase weekend of festival. For parking information, visit our Festival Pass or Camping page for the details and opportunity to purchase.
