Get your tickets now and be one of the lucky ones who can shop our show before we open to the public over the weekend! We're only selling 800 tickets so get one while you can! (To give you an idea of crowds, there are usually close to 2,000 people waiting in line to get into our show when it opens on Saturday morning and our attendance for the entire weekend is 20,000...so 800 will feel like a gentle breeze!)

If the early shopping perk isn't enough, your ticket also gets you one free drink of your choice at the cash bar!
