Planning For Pre-sale On 2/14 & Public On-sale On 2/21

    WHEN: Before we reveal who’s joining us on the grounds of Keeneland this August, score the lowest prices of the year during a special pre-sale starting Friday, February 14th at 10am EST and running until Tuesday, February 18th at 11:59pm EST or while supplies last. The earlier your buy, the more you save!

    Following the pre-sale and lineup reveal, all remaining tickets will go on sale Friday, February 21st at 10am EST.

    WHERE: Tickets will be on sale through the links on our TICKETS PAGE at railbirdfest.com/tickets, which will send you to our ticketing site at railbirdfest.frontgatetickets.com


    HAVE A QUESTION? TIME LIMIT & CREATING AN ACCOUNT: Once you cart your tickets, you will have 15 minutes to complete your purchase. You will also be required to create a Front Gate Tickets account as a part of your purchase process. This is the account you will log into to review your order, change your shipping address before tickets ship, etc. If you want, you can save some time by creating a Front Gate Tickets account ahead of time (just click "sign in" at the top of railbirdfest.frontgatetickets.com). 

How Do Layaway Plans Work?

Ok, so layaway plans are way easier than you think. Here’s a breakdown of how to get a ticket for just $20 down when we go on-sale Friday, 2/14 at 10am EST.

First, click the link for the ticket you want to purchase at railbirdfest.com/tickets, then put it in your cart and keep on going towards checkout like normal. Then select “layaway plan” near the end of the checkout process (it’ll be hard to miss). The only additional charge for using a layaway plan as opposed to buying all at once is a fee of $10 (and this fee isn’t even per ticket, it’s per order.)

EXAMPLE PAYMENT SCHEDULE

After your first payment is made, the follow-up payments will be drawn automatically from the same payment method on the specified due dates. If you would like to update your payment info afterwards, you can do so in your Front Gate Tickets account that you create when you purchase or reach out to Front Gate Tickets Support.

WHAT ABOUT VIP & STUDENT TICKETS?
Of course! Layaway plans can be used for VIP and Student General Admission passes as well. So go ahead and use a layaway plan to split your purchase, but note that the payments are based off of a percentage. The initial payment will be $28 for a VIP ticket and $20 for a student ticket. See the payment schedule for VIP on the tickets page.

CAN I CHANGE MY PAYMENT METHOD OR PAY IT OFF EARLY?

No problem. When you buy a ticket you are required to create an online account with Front Gate Tickets (our official ticket provider). Simply go back to railbirdfest.frontgatetickets.com (where you buy the tickets in the first place) and click “sign in” at the top. From there you can manage your orders, change credit cards or shipping address on file, and even pay it all off early if you’d like.
