The Festival at Sandpoint

Line Policy

Festival Guide: New entry options
no early morning numbers!

The Festival listens to our fans! Without you we could not bring talented musicians to our little town. We strive to make The Festival at Sandpoint your favorite summer tradition. Our goal? To improve your Festival experience, make it fair for fans from near and far and minimize your time in line. We've been hearing a lot of you weren't happy with the morning numbers to save your spot in line, so this year our fans can choose a plan…

The Keepin’ it Simple Plan: Buy a regular price ticket for your show, come to the venue whenever you're ready, line up, enter the venue at the posted gate time.

The Need to be Closer Plan: Pay an extra $25 to enter the venue through the new lakeside Early Entry gate 10 minutes before the general admission. THERE ARE ONLY 300 EARLY ENTRIES AVAILABLE FOR FRIDAY AND SATURDAY SHOWS AND WE EXPECT TO SELL OUT. This is an automatic benefit for Patrons and Sponsors.

The Donor Plan: A patron donation of $1,500 gets you two season passes with Early Entry for Friday and Saturday nights, as well as some sweet tax benefits. The Patron/Sponsor Gate is located to the left of the main gate on Ontario street and will also open 10 minutes early.

What about Season Pass Holders? So you bought a season pass before we told you any of this? Call or come into the office to upgrade any or all of your Friday or Saturday tickets for $25 each. If you choose not to upgrade, your season pass still gets you a 50% discount and general admission entry to all concerts, as usual.  If you do purchase early entry for all Friday and Saturday shows, your discount is still 30%. One person may throw an 8’ x 8’ blanket. 

What about Thursdays and Sundays? Our lines aren't usually as long, so there is only the general admission ticket price. Line up at the Front Gate and enter at the posted gate time.

Confused? Visit or call 208.265.4554

All the magic happens when you get through those gates!
