Venue Information & Policies

The Festival at Sandpoint Line Policy:
 
Our line policy is designed to reward you for being early while setting you free to enjoy a summer day in our beautiful town.
 
• Festival fans who like to sit as close to the stage as possible line up early (sometimes by 5am!) to be the first ones through the gates when they open.
 
• At approx. 8-8:30am, the first numbers are given out to those in line, one number per person. More numbers are given out sometime between 10 and 11am, and then again between 1 and 2pm. Expect to put in some time waiting for your number. No numbers are given for empty chairs or blankets that are placed in line, so you must be present to receive a number.
 
• Only 1 person is admitted with each number, but each person is allowed to throw a blanket for up to 4 people once inside. Blankets should be no more than 8’x 8’— no big tarps!
 
• After receiving a number, fans are free to leave the area and check back in periodically, but you must be back in line at least an hour before the gates open to confirm your spot.
 
• Up to 300 numbers are given out. The first 300 people admitted need a number to prove they were in line.
 
• If you don’t arrive in time to receive a number, take your place at the end of the line and stay there to assure
your position.
 
• Separate numbers are given out for the Patron/Sponsor Gate (pink tickets for this gate), same procedure
