    Please contact http://support.frontgatetickets.com or call 888.512.SHOW (7469) in advance of the performance to speak to a customer care agent.

  • I don’t see any service charges — what’s up with that?

    No Service Charges. No Add-ons. No Surprises. No Lie.

  • There’s a really great deal on Craigslist — should I buy a pass from there?

    Every year thousands of our loving fans think that buying a wristband via Craigslist, eBay, or any broker site will save them some cash and allow them to access the festival. Unfortunately, many of these 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 wristband, notice that it’s not yours, and turn you away, sobbing down Michigan Avenue. 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, visit lollapalooza.com/tickets to purchase your passes 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 $200.00 for three days of music – simply visit lollapalooza.com or call 888.512.SHOW to purchase passes.

  • Can I mess with my wristband?

    • 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.

  • I really want to read your legalese. Where is it?

    Rain or Shine.
