Q: What is a Ticket Card (mag card)?
A: This ticket card is your ticket! (It’s a plastic card with a magnetic strip loaded with your tickets). There will be no physical tickets used for this event - only ticket cards, and you can go straight to the entrance at the event with your card. You can check the tickets on your ticket card by going to http://fla.vor.us/card and typing in your ticket card number. This card will be scanned at the entrance. If you have a 3 Day Pass, all three tickets will be loaded onto the card, and you will need to present it at the entrance each day to get in.
Q: Will tickets sell out?
A: There is always a chance that the event will sell out in which case no more tickets will be sold. We recommend purchasing early so that you can rest assured you will be able to attend. Some ticket types have smaller quantities and will sell out more quickly than others.
Q: Will tickets be sold at the event?
A: If the festival does not sell out in advance, tickets will be available at the box office at a higher price on show dates. Tickets sold out last year so we encourage everyone to purchase tickets in advance so that you don't risk missing out on the fun. Do not buy tickets from scalpers. Beware of frauds.
Q: Will the three-day general admission tickets be a wristband, a lanyard or tickets? What about for VIP tickets?
A: The 3 Day GA Pass tickets will be scanned onto a ticket card (a card with a magnetic strip), which you’ll need to bring each day to get in. The three-day VIP ticket will also be loaded onto a ticket card, but upon entry you will be presented with a wristband that will facilitate access to the VIP area. The VIP wristband will be different on each day, so you’ll still need the card each day to get the new wristband.
Q: Are ticket prices going to increase from where they are now?
A: Yes, they will go up in price level as allotted ticket amounts are sold.
Q: If I buy from an authorized retail location, will I get a physical ticket that will gain me admittance?
A: Yes. Retail locations sell ticket cards, which will be valid for entry.
Q: Are you selling 3 Day Passes at retail outlets?
A: Yes, retail outlets are selling 3 Day Passes. Tickets for all 3 days will be on one ticket card.
