Festival Map

Is Beatles Fest all-ages?

Yes. And the best part is children 10 and under get in free with a ticket-holding adult.

Can I purchase tickets at the main gate?

Yes, although for a number of reasons we highly recommend getting them in advance. Cost savings is one example – if you miss the special $15 price for a General Admission pass (special pricing ends on 8/7), you can still purchase this pass online or upon entering for $25. Another example is that VIP passes typically sell out before the fest, so if you want that type of pass we definitely recommend getting those while they’re still available.

Will I have a place to sit at Beatles Fest?

A limited number of picnic tables in the General Admission area and a limited number of chairs in the VIP General Admission area are provided, but those are first-come, first-served, so it is recommended that you bring a lawn chair along with. The only areas with guaranteed seating is the VIP Premium area in front of the stage and the Beatles Fest Lounge that is exclusive to VIP Gold ticket holders.

If I have to leave Beatles Fest will I be able to re-enter?
