FAQ

Admission:

Your concert ticket is exchanged at the front gate for a wristband. The wristband becomes your passport to re-enter the festival. Please take care of your wristband as it will not be replaced. Wristbands are non-transferable and are void if tampered with. All wristbands will be placed on the right wrist. You can exchange your tickets for wristbands beginning at 2:00pm on Thursday at Will-Call near the main concert entry.

Gates:

Please keep in mind that long lines form at the gates prior to the headline shows. We encourage you to arrive early to avoid the late afternoon long line up. Gates open at 1:30 PM Friday and at 10:30 AM Saturday & Sunday. For the safety of all of our patrons there will be a search conducted at the front gate. No coolers, food, beverages, alcohol or weapons. Video cameras or any recording devices are strictly prohibited as are laser pointers and all will be confiscated. This is strictly enforced.

Handicapped:

Our entire site is ADA Accessible. Most of the Jamboree concert area is level with low cut grass and is equipped with handicap-accessible portable restrooms.

We offer a handicapped gate to relieve the stress on our handicapped patrons who are not able to stand in long lines.  The additional gate is not more or less ADA compliant than the main gate, but tends to have a shorter line when traffic is high at the main gate.  The handicapped gate is open from 1:30pm on Friday and 10:30am on Saturday and Sunday, until the majority of patrons have entered the venue.  When our security team determines that the initial lines have cleared, the handicapped gate will be closed and all patrons will be required to use the main gate.   Handicapped individuals entering through the handicapped gate may be accompanied by one attendant.  Other members of the party must enter from the main gate.

Individuals in a wheelchair, motorized scooter or other device, have access to our wheelchair seating area.  This area is first come, first served and will only allow for ONE attendant with the individual in the wheelchair.  This is not a handicapped seating area, as our entire site is accessible for handicapped seating.  This is strictly reserved for people in chairs and their ONE attendant.

All of our campgrounds are also ADA Accessible.  We offer a special wheelchair-ready shuttle bus if you should need one (by special request from the camphost).

Free limited handicap parking is available on 18th Avenue. State permit is required.
