General Ticket Info

Every participant at Apogaea MUST have a signed Liability Waiver! This waiver explains attendees' responsibilities and the inherent cautions & dangers of attending. Without a signed liability waiver, you will not be allowed to enter the event.

Round 1 & 2 ticket holders will be receiving paper tickets from TicketFly if they selected the mail option, or their names will be on the will-call list at the event if that option was selected. OMG Round tickets will be available at the will-call booth only. Guaranteed/directed tickets for Ignition, Sparks, youth, scholarship, etc. will not be mailed; they will be available at the will-call booth only.
