Hey folk friends, we are excited to announce a NEW addition to the festival this summer, our 50/50 draw! If you have a read-through here you can see how it all works. We wish you the best of luck!

Our brand new 50/50 draw will take place each day of the festival from Thursday to Sunday. At 8:30 PM every night, the winning ticket will be randomly drawn electronically from all tickets sold that day and one lucky folkie will take home 50% of the proceeds. The remaining proceeds help towards ongoing site improvements to the festival grounds that we all enjoy for four beautiful days each summer.

Please note you must be at least 18 years old to purchase tickets.

Look for our friendly 50/50 sellers in green shirts walking throughout the festival site and campgrounds to purchase your ticket – or go visit our Audience Services tent where our volunteers will help you out.

Pricing: 1 for $5, 5 for $10, 20 for $20 (cash only)
