*Festival GA passes purchased at the festival will be $250 and Tack Room SRO passes will be $435.

Do I need a festival pass in order to camp?

Yes! Everyone who camps must also have a festival pass.

I found passes for sale on Craigslist (or enter any third party name). Can you validate these before I purchase them?

No, we can only validate passes sold on Front Gate Tickets, Live Nation and FasterHorsesFestival.com.

Do I need to purchase my festival passes at the same time I purchase camping?

No, you do not need to purchase both at the same time. You may purchase camping and come back to purchase your festival pass later (or vice versa). While supplies last. Please note that if you purchase a pass at the festival it will be $250.

I just purchased my festival pass. When can I expect to receive it?

Wristband and camping pass distribution will start approx 4 weeks prior to the festival. If you have not received your wristband by the time you leave for the festival, please reach out to info@fasterhorsesfestival.com

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. Wristbands that have been tampered with will be void and lost wristbands cannot be replaced for any reason.

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 Faster Horses, Live Nation or Front Gate Ticket websites. 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.

I have questions about my ticket order. Who do I contact?

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.

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 Faster Horses 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 here on the website or in the Faster Horses App at any point before or during the festival!

CAMPING

When can I purchase my campsite?

Camping is on sale NOW! Act fast because many campgrounds are already sold out (don't fret we've still got some great sites available).

How do I get to my campsite?

This year we will have 6 different checkpoints around the festival site:

- You will go through a checkpoint before entering the campgrounds.
- Security will be conducting brief vehicle searches for weapons at each checkpoint, this is to ensure the safety of all of our fans at the -festival.
- Please be ready to show your festival wristbands &/or camping passes.
- Different campgrounds go to different checkpoints. Please check out the map to know which checkpoint you will go through.

What are the overall campground policies?

1. You must have a Faster Horses festival wristband for access to the campgrounds.
2. Sites are sold on reserved basis.
3. Limit of one steering wheel per campsite.
4. Resale of passes is prohibited.
5. Transferring passes is prohibited.
6. Passes must be displayed at all times.
7. Fires must be 10 feet from any vehicle or structure.
8. Tent and awning stakes must be marked.
9. Severe Weather: Live Nation and the Michigan International Speedway are focused on the safety of its patrons, employees and service partners. As such, we may have to shut down festival transportation (buses, trams and golf carts) during periods of severe weather. Please plan accordingly to give yourself enough time to get to a safe place in the case of severe weather.
10. Generators: Campsites are close together. When utilizing a generator, please be considerate of your neighbors. The quieter and more ventilated your generator is, the better. Please “pipe up” internal generators reducing noise and diverting exhaust fumes above the RV and away from your neighbor’s camping area. For free-standing generators, a “muffle box” can reduce noise and direct exhaust away from fellow campers. All generators are sole responsibility of thier owners.
11. KEEP YOUR AREA CLEAN! Keep a trash receptacle in your camping area helps prevent accumulation, odors and helps create a pleasant camping environment. We offer curbside garbage pickup! Leave your trash-specific bags near the road by 10am Friday-Monday for collection.
12. Recycling Efforts: Faster Horses hopes to keep waste to a minimum and working with service organizations to ensure that as many beverage containers as possible are recycled. Please leave your recycle-specific bags in a separate pile near the road by 10am Friday-Monday for collection.
13. No Gray Water Dumping:State law prohibits the dumping of gray water. Dump stations are available in all FH campgrounds. Dumping of gray water is grounds for removal from property.
14. Overnight Parking: Overnight parking is very limited so it’s highly encouraged to buy in advance. Weekend overnight parking passes are $40 per car when purchased in advance and $80 per car if purchased on site. Once parked, vehicles must remain parked for the remainder of the weekend. Note: ONLY vehicles with an “Overnight Companion” parking pass can park in overnight parking areas. Standard vehicle/Day Parking Passes are not permitted.
15. Fire lanes must remain open at all times.
16. Reflectors are requested on bicycles.
17. Sorry, no pets.

28. If you or members of your group are removed from the camping facilities by security for violation of any festival rule, vehicles may be removed at owner's expense.

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 unless they are staying in VIP.

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 ADA Camping?

If you’re looking to purchase ADA camping, please email ada@FasterHorsesFestival.com.

Is there a convenience store available?

Need ice? Forget your toothpaste? Low on firewood? Visit one of our three Corrigan Oil Convenience Store locations in the following campgrounds: Infield (section 6), M-50 Creekside and Brooklyn Trails. Mobile ice sales are also available in the Infield.

Will you have any transportation from campgrounds to the festival?

Yes, we will have trams running to/from each campground (with the exception of M-50 and VIP). Tram hours will be 11am-Midnight Fri-Sun. Check out our Camping page to view the Tram Map.

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 also have a festival wristband.

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 both a camper and tent on the same campsite?

Yes, you can have both a camper and tent on the same campsite as long as it all fits within your camping space. The exceptions are Northwoods and Tent City which are tent only campgrounds.

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 an 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.

Can I change campsites or add campsites during the campsite renewal presale?

No, you cannot move campsites nor add campsites during the renewal presale. You may only purchase the exact sites you had in 2018. You may delete one of them if preferred but you cannot add campsites.
You may also decrease or increase your festival pass purchase during renewal.
Campsite renewals are happening now until Friday, January 18th at 11:59pm ET!

If you need a new campsite (or just purchase festival passes), you may do this during the alumni presale Tuesday, January 22nd - Thursday, January 24th at 11:59pm ET.
