General Sales Rounds 1 and 2 are when the majority of general admission tickets will be sold. Two rounds increases your chances of purchasing tickets should you be unavailable at one of the scheduled sale times. The Last Chance Sales Round is to thwart scalpers and to sell any remaining tickets that were reserved for Ignition/Granted Artists/Scholarship/Youth. In 2014 it took 24 hours to sell out of our Last Chance Sale tickets. If you want to come and did not get a ticket, please email tickets@apogaea.com to see about your chances of getting a Last Chance ticket. The Ticket Lead says, “Please email us before buying from a scalper!”
In order to ensure the event takes place, a small number of tickets must be reserved for key participants who make the event happen – Ignition, Sparks and Granted Artists. There are also 60 tickets reserved for Scholarship and Youth tickets. Ignition/Sparks are radically inclusive and there are many opportunities available to participate. Scholarship and Youth tickets were created in order to make the event more inclusive and accessible to families and people facing financial hardship.
You will receive a unique ticket code to use at checkout when you purchase your ticket from Ticketfly. Your code must be used before the deadline specified in the email with your code. Please refer to this email for the specific deadline. All reserved tickets not purchased by the deadline will be placed into the Last Chance Sale.
Low-income Scholarship tickets and Youth tickets for attendees ages 13-17 must submit an application by the date listed above. For Scholarship tickets, you must provide a copy of your photo ID and the name must match who is requesting the ticket. See the Scholarship and Youth section on the main ticket page for more info.
Find someone who is unable to attend but has a ticket, purchase the ticket from them directly and have them transfer the name with Ticketfly before the ticket transfer deadline. See if there are open Ignition positions to fill and get involved. If you did not get a ticket and want to be put on a list to receive one if someone wants to sell theirs please email tickets@apogaea.com. Those wanting tickets will be matched with those selling tickets on a first come first serve basis.
No! Scalpers are scum who hoard tickets, preventing the tickets from making it into the hands of the community, and cause an artificial increase in prices. Apogaea, Inc., reserves the right to cancel any tickets proven to be sold by, or purchased from, scalpers.
There are federal/state/local laws that we must comply with as well as legal liability issues that must be addressed. We do our best to keep the rules to the bare minimum as to not limit participation, expression and creativity. If you have a question not covered on this page, please email tickets@apogaea.com.
