Ticketing

Information about ticket types can be found on the Festival Tickets page. 

All La Onda sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges.
 
Children (5 and under) receive free entry with a ticketed adult. A ticketed adult may bring up to one child that is 5 years old and under for free with a photocopy of birth certificate or valid passport/ID (born on or before June 2019). To receive the complimentary child’s wristband, the adult and child must check in at the LittleRockers tent outside of 3rd street gate. All guests 6 and over must have a paid wristband to enter the festival.


Tag-A-Kid

Adults can register their children of all ages at the La Onda check-in tent and receive a specialized wristband. The LittleRockers wristband is used for safety – in the event that a child gets lost, staff can reunite them with their registered parent. We strongly encourage that all parents register their child at the LittleRockers booth. 


Order Confirmation

You should receive your order confirmation immediately upon purchase of your tickets via Front Gate. 

If you purchased a ticket and did not receive your e-mail confirmation, you may have entered your email address incorrectly on Front Gate. Please update your account information here to retrieve your ticket confirmation.


Ticket Resale

Your purchase to La Onda tickets is subject to our purchase terms which contain, among other things, a strict prohibition on ticket resale. La Onda does NOT work with resellers or secondary market websites in any capacity. 

 

Wristbands

Upon completion of your ticket purchase, you will receive an order confirmation number and receipt via email from Front Gate. Wristbands are shipped to ticketholders before the festival – no printed tickets will be issued for this event. Your wristband is your ticket into the festival.

Once you receive your wristband, do not try it on. The clasp slides one way and there is no way to remove it or loosen it without damaging the wristband. 

Wristbands are non-removable and non-transferable and must not be tampered with in any way. If you are a 2-day passholder, your 2-day wristband grants you admission for both days. If you are a 1-day passholder, your 1-day wristband grants you admission on the day shown on the wristband.

You must wear your wristband at all times at the festival. Do not cut off or remove your wristband until you leave the festival for the final time.

Lost, stolen, damaged and tampered with wristbands will only be replaced at the discretion of festival staff. The wristband replacement fee is $20.
