We recommend flying into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SeaTac). From there your best option is to book a shuttle and ride with other festival goers at Bus.com (See SHUTTLES for details). You can also rent a car and drive. The drive time from SeaTac to The Gorge is around 3 hours and it’s incredibly scenic!

ITEMS PROHIBITED FROM AMPHITHEATRE GROUNDS
We love your totems, we promise. But we also love being able to see the stage, allowing our media team to take great photos and videos, and above all else, keeping everyone safe. We ask that everyone please follow these guidelines as they will be enforced at the security checkpoint.
You can bring vapes, e-cigarettes or Juuls. All tanks must be empty and all cartridges must be new and in sealed packaging upon entry to the Amphitheatre each day.
You may bring prescriptions, but they must be in the prescription bottle from the pharmacy and the name on the prescription must match the name on your ID. We ask that you only bring enough for the prescribed daily amount times the number of days you will be on site. Refrigeration is available at our medical facility, please inquire when you arrive.
If the festival does not sell out, tickets will be available at the box office on show date at a higher price.
Do not buy tickets from ticket scalpers! There's a reason "scalper" rhymes with "scammer." We can only guarantee entry to valid tickets.
Yes, assuming the ticket is valid and unscanned! Do not trust 3rd parties as they can scam you by selling fake tickets or selling tickets that have already been scanned.
Please contact Frontgate Tickets as soon as possible. If you are at the festival already, head to the Box Office during open hours. Please note there may be a fee assessed for replacement wristbands.
Yes, for the best price tickets you should buy earlier rather than later!
Nope, sorry! Security will not allow anyone under the age of 18 into the venue, even if they are with a guardian.
Security will not accept consular identification or a foreign government issued drivers license other than Canadian Province issued driver’s license or identification card. US military ID, Merchant Marine ID, Tribal ID (not all accepted), and US Possessions issued ID will all also be accepted. They will accept any foreign government issued passport provided it has a photo, name, and date of birth on it.
As long as it's valid, not expired, and clearly is the holder of the ID in the picture, vertical IDs are accepted for entry and alcohol possession for those over 21.
If you have a passport, security will accept all government issued passports.
Please bring your expired ID AND your temporary DMV documentation that proves your ID is being renewed.
Canadian drivers licenses, ID cards or passports that are not expired are accepted.
Guests from outside the US and Canada must use a government-issued passport provided it has a photo, name, and date of birth on it. A passport can be acquired by scheduling an appointment with your local consulate office. Security will not accept consular identification or a foreign government issued driver's license.
Visit the CAMPING section of this web site to purchase Standard, Premier, Terrance, Easy Tent-Ready, Gold, Glamping, Safari, or Oasis Camping Options
Educate yourself on our CAMPING RULES :)
In Standard Camping and Easy Tent-ready Camping, head to The Pivot to take a shower for $3.00.
In Premier and Terrace Camping, showers are provided free of charge.
Shower hours are 7:30am - 7:30pm Friday-Sunday and 7:30-10:00am on Monday (closed for cleaning 2:30-3:30pm daily).
Groups that want to camp together must arrive at the same time.*
Campsites in Regular & Premier camping are allocated as you arrive. Spaces cannot be held or reserved for vehicles arriving later.
*For Terrace Camping, spaces are allocated by type of vehicle. Therefore, it is not always possible to camp groups together, even if you arrive together. Especially if one campsite is a tent set up and another is a large RV. Management decisions on placement are final.
You don’t have to be camping, but you must have a Bass Canyon festival wristband.
Camping trailers and RVs are allowed in the campsites as long as they fit within the dimensions of the site. If a trailer and tow vehicle is too long, the patron may unhook the trailer and park the tow vehicle next to it in the site. Additional camping passes may need to be purchased.
For all guests age 21+, alcohol is permitted within the confines of your group's campsite. However no open containers or alcohol consumption is allowed in the public areas or on the roads.
Quiet hours begin 1 hour after the amphitheatre music ends. No outside sound systems or DJ setups are allowed.
No, you will need a Bass Canyon ticket in order to enter the campgrounds.
Yep! The General Store carries many of the necessities you may have forgotten like sunscreen, basic toiletries etc. It also carries a wide variety of beers, soft drinks & snacks, ice, etc. You can find it close to the main entrance.
Do not bring any pet whatsoever, not because we don't like them - we are all animal lovers here - but it is cruel and unfair to the pet to leave it alone in the campground or parking lot, locked up or in a car or tent where it may suffer from extreme heat. When we see a pet in a car or running around the campground unattended, we will alert the authorities and your vehicle may be entered and the pet taken to a shelter for its own welfare. You may be subject to prosecution for cruelty to animals.
Working Service Animals are permitted, however.
Yes, Honey Bucket provides standard RV servicing for an additional fee.
No, camping passes are for the entire weekend only.
Drones are strictly prohibited from being used anywhere on The Gorge Amphitheatre property (parking lots, campground, venue, etc). Staff will be instructed to confiscate any drone found being used on site.
