2024 FESTIVAL PASS INFO (II)

We are only one week away from announcing the lineup for Big Ears 2024! Ahead of that announcement on Tuesday, September 12, we have a few more updates and changes to share.

OPTIONS TO ATTEND THE FESTIVAL

In case you missed it last week, visit our website to learn more.

RFID WRISTBANDS / ONLINE REGISTRATION

This year, the Big Ears experience will be enhanced by the introduction of RFID wristband technology, helping to facilitate access to venues as well as offering more accurate information as to attendance and capacity at our venues. Wristbands will be mailed to most attendees prior to the festival and will enable you to register for the festival online so that you can hit the ground running and start checking out shows as soon as you arrive in Knoxville!

Sale Schedule + Pre-Sale Information

Passes will be made available to the general public starting at 9 a.m. ET on Thursday, September 14. Ahead of the general on-sale, we will be offering two special pre-sales for our donors and previous pass purchasers:

  • Tuesday, September 12 at 9 a.m. ET: Early access for Big Ears supporters who have given at the Voyager level or above ($100+) between September 13, 2022 and September 10, 2023)
  • Wednesday, September 13 at 9 a.m. ET: Early access for past Big Ears Festival pass purchasers

Purchase codes will be delivered to qualifying participants via email prior to each pre-sale. Please note that the pre-sale code for previous purchasers will only be delivered to the email address associated with the purchaser and their Front Gate Ticketing account and not everyone included in a party. If you have questions about whether you qualify for a pre-sale, please respond to this email.

Big Ears supporters who have given at the Voyager Level or above ($100+) since September 13, 2023, will have the opportunity to purchase passes as soon as the lineup is announced on Tuesday, September 12, at 9 a.m. ET.
