The ticket sale begins at 8 a.m. July 18, and guests must select the festival day when purchasing tickets. Each purchase is limited to 10 tickets, and a total of 100,000 tickets will be available during the Sale of the Century, according to July 9 festival information.
Tickets will be on sale for $18, a 48% discount off gate admission, according to festival information. Preferred parking, valet parking and camping admission tickets will also be on sale then.
Should the festival season be canceled amid the coronavirus pandemic, all tickets will be honored for the 2021 festival season, or guests may request a refund, according to festival information. Otherwise, tickets are nonrefundable, and the festival will be held rain or shine.
If festival capacity is still limited in October due to COVID-19, festival officials said there will be no at-the-gate ticket sales this year. Tickets will need to be purchased via the Sale of the Century or beginning Aug. 1 at H-E-B, Groupon or online.
Festival officials also said guests will be encouraged to wear face coverings during the event. If face coverings are mandated by the state—as is the case currently—guests will be required to wear them at the festival grounds.
The festival announced tentative modifications in late May regarding how operations could change amid the coronavirus pandemic. This includes having a face mask contest each day the festival is open, with more details to come, festival officials said.
