We love pets but, thousands of people attend the Apex Music Festival every year. It is a crowded environment and not comfortable for pets and for patrons trying to navigate the festival. NO PETS ARE PERMITTED.

You may be subject to searches of personal belongings.
May I bring my own seating?
The festival is designed to have you walk around and see various acts on one of our 4 stages. There will be seating for VIP Ticket purchasers. We recommend that you take advantage of all the activities going on during the festival. Please be courteous of others and mindful of where you sit or leave your camping chair if you bring one. Any personal belongings or seats left unattended are subject to confiscation and disposal by the festival organizers, security, EMS or Police.
What if I lose my ticket?
Please Don’t. You will be emailed your pre-sale ticket, so you should have it in your email. But if you do, you can ask at the main ticketing gate. Pre-Sale and “Day Of” purchases will come with a wrist band that you should not take off during the festival.
What about the weather?
The festival will go on, rain or shine, no refunds. In order to keep the view of the stages open to everyone, NO UMBRELLAS will be permitted. Ponchos are fine.
