Aqueous Mastadon by Araya Metzer 2016 Apogaea Ticket Design

Tickets are not yet available for 2017

Every participant at Apogaea must have a ticket. Without one, you will be escorted out by either an A.S.S. member or a Ranger. Ticket revenue supports the infrastructure needed to safely bring the event to fruition and the grant money for approved art.

All general sales tickets will be mailed after the Last Chance Sale, typically during the second week of May.  All Round One, Round Two and Last Chance Sales ticket holders will be receiving paper tickets from TicketFly. Guaranteed/directed tickets for Ignition, Sparks, Youth, Scholarship, etc.  will not be mailed – they will be available at the event’s will-call booth.

Last year a guaranteed ticket was promised to anyone who did one of the following things in 2016*:

  • Ratified Ignition member
  • Spark Volunteer
  • A department directed ticket volunteer
  • Anyone who volunteered 6+ hours
    *Tickets must be purchased by April 25th.

Don’t Forget Your Liability Waiver!
This is REQUIRED for each ticket holder!

Souvenir Art Tickets Available for Additional Purchase

We are adding an option to purchase souvenir art tickets with the winning ticket design this year. Because we will be working with a lean budget, we are doing away with free souvenir art tickets. The cost of this ticket is TBA. And YES, they will be awesome! If you do not purchase the souvenir ticket, your Ticketfly ticket will still admit you into the event.  If you purchase a souvenir art ticket, you can pick it up at will-call. There will be an option to purchase the souvenir ticket when you make your ticket purchase online.


Ladder – Ticket Exchange Program

Have an extra ticket you want to sell? Or do you need a ticket? No problemo – use Ladder!

Ladder is like STEP, except that it was created specifically for the Apogaea community by the Apogaea community. Ladder was created with one concept in mind: to match people with tickets to people needing tickets. It facilitates face value exchanges of tickets on a first-come-first-serve basis.

How Ladder Works: Ladder maintains an ordered list of people who need tickets. When a ticket-holder comes to the site with a ticket that needs a new home, they get to choose from a short list of people at the front of the line. Ticket-holders who don’t want to choose can just opt for the first person in line. Once the recipient confirms they still need a ticket, both ticket-holder and recipient are given each other’s contact information. From this point, it’s up to ticket-holder and recipient to conduct the transfer of the ticket.
