Find out more about how Insomniac helped three Las Vegas charitable organizations from EDC Las Vegas 2014 ticket sales here.

Q. Will the ticket prices go up from there?
A. There is a limited amount of tickets for Early Owl GA, tier 1. They will sell out once 30% of capacity has been sold. No guarantee how quickly they may sell out. L8r Owl, the second and final tier will be $349 +fees. A payment plan option will be available for the final tier. There is no tiering for VIP tickets.

Q. Are the additional fees per ticket or is it per order?
A. The customer processing fees (Early Owl: $38.75; L8R Owl $39.35; VIP $49.85) are per ticket. If you’re doing the payment plan, the customer processing fee is included as part of your monthly payments.

Q. If I buy two tickets on one order can I still do a payment plan?
A. Yes! You can do the payment plan for multiple tickets.

Q. Can I purchase one ticket full price and put another on a payment plan?
A. Yes. Similarly, you can purchase a VIP ticket and a VIP ticket using the payment option in the same transaction. However, you will not be able to purchase GA and VIP ticket in the same transaction.

Q. How many tickets can I buy?
A. There’s a limit of six tickets. Persons who exceed the ticket limit may have any or all of their orders and tickets cancelled without notice by Ticketmaster in its discretion. This includes orders associated with the same name, e-mail address, billing address, credit card number or other information.

Q. Can a friend buy my ticket or does it have to be bought off of my own credit card?
A.  Your friend can buy at ticket for you, but it will get shipped to their billing address.

Q. Should I buy general admission or VIP?
A. We’ve written an article about that! Read it here, General Admission vs VIP.

Q. How many boxes do I get of goodies/swag?
A. You will receive one box per order. If you ordered more than one ticket together, that would be considered one order and you would only get one box. If people in the same household (same address) place individual ticket orders, each order will receive a box regardless of sharing the same address. So if you want more than one box, just make sure to order your tickets separately, though there will be a separate $8.50 shipping fee for each order. Another option that might be possible is that at previous EDC Las Vegas events, anyone else who wanted a box of goodies could visit the will call tent at the festival and ask for one.

Q. Will there be single day tickets?
A. Nope, only three-day passes. According to Pasquale Rotella, you need a whole weekend to experience it all!

Q. Will the tickets be paper, magnetic card or wristband?
A. Details about EDC Las Vegas tickets has not been released yet. However, EDC Orlando 2014 tickets were Experience Pass RFID wristbands, both a ticket into the festival and your wallet loaded with “Daisy Dollars” for the weekend to purchase food and drinks, locker rentals and EDC merchandise. We’ve heard that the use of these RFID wristbands went smoothly at EDC Orlando, so it’s a good assumption that they will also be used at EDCLV. You can read more details and watch a video about the tickets used at EDC Orlando at The Experience Pass Wristband.

Q.  I’m purchasing a three-day pass but can’t make it one of the days—can I let a friend use my ticket after I have?
A. No, your ticket is not transferable. Assuming that your ticket is an RFID wristband (see question above), unlike magnetic card tickets used in previous years, it would be next to impossible to give your RFID wristband to a friend to use for one of the days if you couldn’t attend.

Q. Do I have to buy my shuttle pass at the same time as my tickets?
A. There will be shuttles for EDCLV, but that info will come out later. You can purchase shuttle passes separately.

Q. When will I receive my tickets in the mail?
A. They will not be mailed until at least three to four weeks before the festival if you live in the United States.  US shipping is $8.50 per order. Shipping tickets to Canada will be $26.50 per order, while all other international destinations will be $45.50 per order. International headliners can can choose either international shipping for an additional fee (Canada $26.50 other countries $45.50) or you can pickup your tickets at will call for $8.50 per order.  We have a tip for will call tickets.

Q. Can’t I just ship the tickets to a friend or family member’s house in the United States?
A. Tickets can only be shipped to the billing address. This is to help prevent fraud.

Q: How can I avoid ticket fraud?
A: The best way to avoid ticket fraud is to buy directly from official ticket links. If you buy resale tickets, we advise you to get them only from trusted friends. DO NOT purchase from scalpers. If you arrive at the venue with an illegitimate ticket, you will be turned away, and no refund will be provided.

Q. How do I know if my purchase was successful?
A. It will say right away. You should also receive a confirmation email within moments of purchase. If you do not see it, be sure to check your junk folder.

Q. What are the age limits?
A. 18+ for general admission and 21+ for VIP.

Q. They really expect people to buy tickets without a lineup?
A. Yes. It’s been this way for years. It’s about the experience and it’s a great experience. Once the lineup is out if you don’t like it you can easily sell your ticket. The lineup will be out sometime in May or early June.

Q. What if I buy tickets but can’t go, how do I sell them?
A. Once you receive your tickets mail them. If the tickets will be at will call you’ll need to make a photo copy of your credit card and black out all but the last four digits and also give the purchaser a photocopy of your driver’s license.

Q. Does my EDC ticket get me access to EDC Week events?
A. No. Your ticket is for the three nights of the festival itself. Pool parties and club nights are all separate tickets. Keep an eye on our EDC Week 2015 page for everything related to events outside of the festival.

Q: How do I buy tickets for EDMBiz?
A:  The 4th annual EDMbiz will be held June 16th-18th! Badges go on sale Tuesday, Dec 2nd at noon PT. There will be EDCLV/EDMbiz ticket bundle packages available.

Q. Do I have to book my hotel right now?
A. No, but the earlier you book it the cheaper your price will be. Same goes with flights. Insomniac will not be offering travel packages, but they will be offering special hotel pricing at some point very soon.
