Is this a family friendly festival?
For the most part, yes it is. We welcome guests of all ages to attend! There are no age restrictions to attend our outdoor programming, and children 10 and younger get in free. However, please note that some programming might be PG-13, so plan accordingly. Also, some of our evening programming does require you to be 21 years of age or older to attend, though, depending on venue policy.

How do I get in?
Buy a wristband! You have three great options: Single-day, 3-day weekend, or FastTrack. Head over to Prekindle to learn more about each option and of course to give them your money.

Does my child need a wristband?
Children 10 years of age or younger get in for free!

Can I buy a single day wristband?
Yes! Friday wristbands are $25, and Saturday and Sunday wristbands are $35. These are good for access to the outdoor stages and venue shows.

How will I receive my wristband?
Wristbands will be available at our registration area during the festival. On Friday, that will be at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center (PAAC) starting at 4pm. On Saturday and Sunday, registration will be at the festival entrance next to Rusty Taco’s starting at Noon. See the map below for more details.

Do I get a discount if I buy multiple wristbands?
At this time there are no discounts available, sorry!

Can my friend pick up my wristband for me?
Unfortunately, no. You will need to be present, show your ID, and your confirmation email from PreKindle.

What if I have too many beers and cannot drive?
Please do not drink and drive. Good news! Uber recently expanded to Denton and is offering $20 worth of free ride vouchers for our area for first time users! Be sure to download the app and use code “35ride” to receive your $20 ride voucher.
