What if I need additional tickets?

How do I volunteer to work on staff at Uprise and what is involved?

Please go to our volunteer page for all the details on how to sign up and what is involved.

If I am with a group or family and arrive separately, and don’t have my ticket, how do I get in to the festival?

If you do not have your ticket confirmation with the barcode, don’t worry! We can look up your ticket by your name or your group’s name. The whole group does not have to be present in order to get in.

What are the prices for Admission and Camping and Artist Meet & Greet, etc?

Do you have a schedule for the artists and speakers?

We will post a tentative schedule in a few weeks, but all times are subject to change. The schedule will be published in the program, but in the meantime, please visit our Lineup page for a list of our artists and speakers.

Do I have to stay in one place all day? Can I save my place in the arena?

You are allowed to roam around anywhere you like. You can save your place in the arena for that day, however, Friday night all blankets, chairs, umbrellas and personal items must be removed until the gates open on Saturday morning.

How big is my Camping space? What is Camping like at Uprise Festival?

All camping spots are 20X40. Camping at Uprise Festival is very basic. There are no hookups and no ground fires allowed, but you are very close to the main area of the festival and is a very short walk to everything.

Are there any discounts or group prices for the festival?

Our goal is to make all our prices as low as possible so everyone can enjoy, so we do not offer discounts or group prices.

What if I am unable to attend Uprise Festival due to an emergency? Do I get a refund?

There are no refunds. You can resell or gift them to someone else, but all orders are non-refundable.

When can I get there and when do I need to leave?

Campers will be able to arrive at noon on Friday, but will not be able to enter the main festival area until the General Admission gates open. The gates for all General Admission will open at 3:30PM on Friday. Everyone will need to be off the premises by noon on Sunday morning.

What if I get hurt at the festival?

There are First Aid stations available throughout the grounds as well as emergency vehicles on call just in case. See a staff member for these locations.

You are welcome to bring chairs, umbrellas, or blankets. However, chairs and umbrellas are only permitted behind the sound tower in the main arena. Also, please be aware of those around you. If you have a large set up, please stay towards the back so you are not impeding anyone else’s view.
