    • Two Day General Admission Pass - Enjoy all two days of the festival and the entire lineup.
    • Single Day General Admission Pass - Enjoy the specific artists performing on the given day for which you buy a pass.

    Purchase your pass on our Tickets page including more details on each festival ticket type.

    Be sure to join our e-mail list for up-to-date information on ticketing and other LouFest events!

  2. How Many Passes Can I Buy? Is there a Limit?

    Yes, there is an event ticket purchase limit of 8. This limit applies per person, per transaction, per credit card, per billing address, per email address, and other factors.

    Any person or group that exceeds the ticket limit in any way is subject to and at risk of order cancellation and refunding at the discretion of LouFest and its partners at any time after initial purchase.

  3. Where Are The Service Charges?

    No Service Charges. No Add-ons. No Surprises. No Lie.

  4. Do I Pay Full Price For My Child?

    Children 10 years-old and younger will be admitted free of charge with a ticket-holding adult.

  5. What Is A "Collectible Credential"?

    A Collectible Credential is a special keepsake in addition to your wristband. For a small upcharge, you can add a cool, 3D keepsake to your order. The Collectible Credential is a lanyard that can be worn around your neck during the festival, and be taken home for a keepsake. It will include the year's customized artwork and specific lineup.

  6. Ticket Protection

    We now offer 100% Ticket Protection in the event that you cannot attend the festival for a valid, documented reason. The cost is 6% of the ticket price and can be added to your order during the purchase process. For additional information on ticket protection, please refer to Front Gate Tickets page or call (888) 512-SHOW (7469).

  7. Are 2-Day Passes Two Separate Wristbands?

    No, it will be one special wristband, so you will need it both days.

  8. Will Passes Be Sold At LouFest?

    If not sold out, yes.

  9. There's A Good Deal On Craigslist...Should I?

    Every year thousands of our loving fans think that buying a ticket via Craigslist, StubHub, eBay, or any broker site will save them some cash and allow them to access the festival. Unfortunately, many of these passes are either already used or are counterfeits.

    Please don’t make us stop you at the gate and send you to the infamous “trouble” table to examine the pass, notice that it’s not yours, and turn you away, sobbing down the street. It’s unbecoming and although we’d love to just let you in, you didn’t buy it from us and therefore, we cannot validate your story. If you want 100% confidence that you’ll be cool, click here to purchase your tickets every single time.

    Oftentimes people will try to sell their wristbands to others if they cannot attend a certain day. Unfortunately, the removing of a wristband automatically voids it. Our crack security takes great pain in checking every wristband to assure it has not been removed and replaced. You will be caught and you will be escorted directly from the property. Please do not let them tell you that it’s okay while you fork over a load of cash for two days of music – simply visit our Tickets Page or call 888.512.SHOW (7469) to purchase tickets.

  10. Ticket Legalese

    Rain or Shine.

    Ticket is for LouFest, not for a specific artist. Artists and schedule subject to change without notice. Artist cancellation is not grounds for refund. The ticket is a revocable license for the time/date listed on the ticket.

    “Management” means LouFest, C3 Presents, Listen Live Entertainment, and their affiliates. Management reserves the right without the refund of any portion of the ticket purchase price, to refuse admission or to eject any person who fails to comply with the rules of the venue, local, state or federal law or whose conduct is deemed illegal, disorderly, or offensive by Management. Persons entering the facility are subject to search for contraband. Pass user bears all risks of personal injury incidental to the event, whether occurring before, during or after the event. Pass user bears all risks, including cancellation of the event and of inclement weather. The resale or attempted resale of the pass higher than that appearing on the ticket is prohibited and if discovered will result in the ticket being voided without refund. The pass may not be used for advertising promotion (including contests and sweepstakes), or other trade purposes without the express written consent of Management. Pass user consents to Management’s use of their image or likeness incidental to any video display, transmission, or recording of the event.

    View the full legalese on our Legal & Privacy Page as well as our Terms and Conditions.

  8. Legal & Privacy Information
  1. What is MyFest?

    Creating a MyFest account today gives you access to the festival all at your fingertips. You can prepare for your time at the festival by creating a customized schedule based on the artists you want to see, and share with your friends so you can plan beforehand together.

  2. What Happens If I Don't Create a MyFest Account?

    Basically, you can continue to use the entire site, listen to the music player, learn about bands, see when they are playing, participate in contests and all that jazz without ever interacting with MyFest. But you'd be missing out (and who wants to do that?). Signing up for MyFest lets you customize and compare your ideal festival weekend and keeps you up-to-date with what's happening around Forest Park during the weekend. Signing up for MyFest does not sign you up for our e-mail list.

    And no, signing up for MyFest doesn't mean we'll bug you with unwanted updates. You're in control and you can customize as much as you want to.

  3. What Is the Difference Between "E-List" And "MyFest"?

    MyFest is how you customize your entire LouFest experience. It is how you create a Custom Schedule, Custom Lineup and Custom Festival. Anything you add will be added to your customized MyFest on loufest.com.

    To stay even more connected to what's happening with LouFest, sign up for our E-list to receive email updates directly to your e-mail inbox about:

    • Artist giveaways
    • Super-special deals
    • Updates on future festival tickets to get a head start!
  4. How Do I Sign In To MyFest?

    You can access MyFest by clicking on the vertical blue side bar on the left side of the page.* Simply click on your picture, if you've already logged in. If this is your first time logging in, click on the silhouette image in the circle at the top of the side bar to get going on MyFest.

    This side bar lives on every page and will keep you signed in once you log in. So you can go explore artists and craft your schedule, and always have access to your MyFest from every page.

    *If you're planning your festival from your mobile device, the MyFest access bar will be at the top of every page.

  5. What Can I "Add" To MyFest?

    Anything that has a "+" or "+ ADD" button. This can include, but not limited to:

    • Bands on the Lineup Page
    • Individual Artist Pages
    • Set Times from the Schedule Page

    Keep an eye out for the "+" or "+ ADD" and make sure to click that button. Once you add something to MyFest, you will see the green bar on the left light up. This means your time has successfully been added to your MyFest so that you can stay updated with special notifications.

    You can always remove something from MyFest as quickly as you can add it. Just look out for the "-" or "- REMOVE" button.

  6. What Is The Music Player?

    The music player is a collection of Soundcloud tracks from artists appearing at LouFest. It will stream continuously as you navigate throughout different pages of the website. You can activate the player without being signed into MyFest, either by clicking the play button on the left side of this page, on the Lineup or Schedule Page or any Band's Page.

    We chose Soundcloud to source all music tracks so that the artists could decide what music they wanted to share and so you wouldn't have to create any other accounts to listen to it. As more artists add tracks to Soundcloud, we'll add them to loufest.com.

  7. Additional Questions

    Contact us at info@loufest.com for any questions not answered here and we'll help you out! Please be patient - we receive many emails and will answer them in the order received.
