To ensure everyone gets a chance to buy a ticket, each order is limited to one ticket and one buyer. BUT…you can keep placing orders for additional tickets for additional attendees. We encourage you to have your friends get their own so they have them in their email.

On Sale Monday, June 22 at 10:00 a.m.

To ensure everyone gets a chance, you can only purchase a single ticket at a time. However, you can complete as many orders as you like. To ensure a smooth gate process, use the persons name and email address who will be receiving the ticket so they digitally receive the ticket!

Stay tuned to the event website as more information is released.
