Know your tickets

Before you buy, it can be helpful to know what type of tickets you want to purchase before they go on sale. 3-Day GA Passes and 3-Day VIP Passes will be available at both Chicago and Denver.

To get through the ticket buying process faster, a tip we find helpful is to create an account with Ticketfly before your buy so that when you check out all of your information is already saved and you just have to confirm and buy.

In Chicago, besides GA and VIP 3-Day passes, you can also purchase the Riot Fest 3-Day Deluxe VIP Pass which includes all the perks of a VIP, complimentary snacks, and open bar, air-conditioned restrooms, lounges, free Wi-Fi, charging areas and so more.

Sold Out?

Don’t worry, a lot of resell sites carry tickets, you can always find some on SuperSeats or Stubhub. Just don’t buy your tickets too late to plan for the festival.
