Details, Details, Details…

  • I purchased my ticket months (weeks) (days) ago and still don’t have it. Where is it? All of our ticketing is electronic thru FrontGate and you should have received the electronic ticket after April 14 or as soon as you made the purchase. If you do not have a confirming email drop us a note and we will fix it up.
  • I purchased my ticket during Abbey Road on the River 2016 and still have not received it. What do I do? All tickets that were purchased during Abbey Road on the River last May were e-mailed April 14. If you cannot find yours contact us and we will resend it.
  • What if I cannot print or lose my ticket? Don’t worry! We have a record of every ticket purchase and can easily track your order at the box office when you arrive.
  • When and how do I receive my wristband? There are two ways; bring the ticket that you purchased through our website and we will scan it and exchange it for a wristband, or purchase one each day at the box office.
  • Who are the folding chairs in front of the Lawn stage for? They are reserved for AROTR. patrons who purchased reserve/ultimate tickets to ride starting at 6pm each night.
  • Are the wristbands transferable? Like if I can’t stay up for a late night show (as an ex.), can my teen use it? No, we cannot transfer wristbands or any other credential.
  • What happens if I lose my pass? If you purchased your tickets through our office or website your order is in our file.
  • What happens if I lose or break my festival wristband?  Just bring the broken wristband to the Box Office for a replacement.



Fun Stuff You Should Know 

  • How hot will it get in the day and how cold will it get at night? Will it rain?  While we all hope for the best, watch the forecast, and pack accordingly. A jacket, sweater, hat, flip-flops, couldn’t hurt. Bring sunscreen and ear plugs for kids.
  • What should I bring along if I want to be in the Saturday Night Yellow Submorons Parade?  Costumes, hats, banners, signs, noisemakers, beads, money, and trinkets to toss to the crowd, etc.
  • Can I bring my guitar, banjo, ukulele, cowbell, timpani, etc. to the late night sing along?  Yes, just don’t bring them all.
  • Can I hang out with the bands? I like bands. And the Abbey Road on the River Bands like the fans: bring them cookies and we know they will hang out with you.
  • Oh yeah, no  guns, no drugs, no “still mad at yoko shirts”
