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 strip. 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 website or call 888.512.SHOW to purchase tickets.

DO NOT remove your wristband between days. If wristbands are removed or tampered with whatsoever, they are void and will be confiscated. If wristbands are too loose and look like they can be slipped on and off, they will be confiscated.

There will be free shuttles running to and from downtown Detroit to the festival grounds on Belle Isle for all festival patrons that have a valid festival wristband. Keep checking our website for more info as the Festival gets closer.

If passes are not sold out, tickets can be purchased the day of the show at the festival box office. No advance passes are sold without a credit/debit card. If needed, we suggest you purchase a Visa, Mastercard or Amex gift card, register the card on-line to your billing address, and use the funds to purchase your passes on-line or via phone.

Yes, simply uncheck “My billing and shipping addresses are the same” within step 3 (within the “Delivery” Tab) of the purchase process and enter the alternate shipping address.

Children 12 and under are allowed to the festival free with a paid adult.

Passes will ship in early May. If you don’t receive your pass(es) by 72 hours prior to the festival, please contact http://support.frontgatetickets.com or call 888.512.HELP.

Orion is open to ALL music lovers! There will be ADA platforms, raised above the crowd with ramps both in the Ultra area and at each stage. You and their guest(s) can gain access to the platform by visiting the ADA tent just inside the front gates and obtaining a special wristband. We also have ASL interpreters at the booth to assist with those who are deaf or hard of hearing. We will be posting further accessibility information in the very near future. If you want your question answered before then, e-mail us at [email protected].
