What can I bring?

Expand All
Can I bring an umbrella or parasol?

Sorry, no umbrellas that block the view of other festival goers. You wouldn’t want someone with an umbrella blocking your view either, right?

You can bring a small parasol as long as you are courteous to other festival goers. Parasols will not deflect water as an umbrella does. Most parasols are made of paper and a light wood as bamboo not metal and water resistant material. If it falls into the dimensions of 23" long / 32" wide opened it's good. Also must be non-metal stemmed handle and scoping pole. Lightweight wood such as bamboo is ok.

How do I bring in my prescription medicine?
All medical prescriptions must be in their original containers with labels that match the holder’s legal ID.
How do I bring my insulin?
Please identify yourself to security before entering the venue. Security will locate medical staff to assist you in providing a secure area to store your insulin.
What about medically required food, supplements and other equipment and supplies?
All medical items that are not available for purchase on site, including food, may be brought in. You may be asked to provide an official doctor’s note and/or prescription detailing the necessity of the item.
How big is a medium backpack? / How will this be enforced?
A medium backpack should be no bigger than 18″ tall, 13″ wide and 8″ thick packed. Bags will have to fit into a box of that size (similar to the system used at airports). If your bag doesn’t fit in the box, it won’t be allowed inside the venue.
What is considered a professional camera?
Any camera with a removable/detachable lens.

What is Premium Seating?
Premium Seating gives all fans safe and easy access to high demand seated passes at market driven prices. The price varies, adjusting according to supply & demand and are not resale tickets. Premium Seats are sold directly by Stagecoach through AXS and are guaranteed by the festival.
Why do Premium Seating prices vary?
Premium Seat prices are adjusted according to customer demand and the number of passes still available, similar to how airline tickets and hotel rooms are sold. This allows customers direct access to guaranteed seats at prices that are closer to their true value.
What do my Premium Seats get me?
Premium Seats for each pass type do not include extra amenities on top of what is listed within each description.
I have a question/issue with Premium Seating that is not answered here.

AXS Premium Seats customer support is standing by for you. Visit support.axs.com and they will get right back to you. You can also call 7 days a week 8:00am-10:00pm CST at 888-929-7849. For more details and FAQs on Premium Seating, please click here.

Lockers

Expand All
Where are the lockers or locker check-in tent?
Both are located inside the venue. We will post a 2023 map to show you the exact location or you can head to an info kiosk for directions. They’ll also be available in the mobile app.
What info do you collect?
We’ll have your name and email when we scan your mobile ticket at check-in. We’ll allow you to add a friend’s name and email to the reservation on site as well.
What do I need to bring to the festival to receive my locker access?

Please bring your phone and we’ll scan the mobile ticket inside the email you receive from us. We will email a copy to you closer to the show. If you have any troubles, please contact lockers@stagecoachfestival.com

What happens if I forget my scannable ticket?
Please download your mobile ticket on your device ahead of time (and add to your Apple Wallet if applicable). If you forget your mobile ticket, our staff can check your name and order in our system.
Do you guarantee to hold my locker reservation?
Yes. We will hold your locker reservation throughout the entire festival until you claim it.
Will you explain the locker deposit?
Let’s use the Medium Locker as an example. The ticketing company charges $55. You bring the scannable ticket to locker check-in. You tell our staff what your combination is, they write it down and set up the combo lock for you and you’re on your way to use the locker. When you return the combo lock to us you immediately receive $10 cash back. Your net total cost for the Medium Locker for three days is $45. You’ll leave the festival with $10 in your pocket – gas money for the drive home.
I hate lines...?
We all hate lines. Help us help you quicker by coming with your mobile ticket ready to be scanned. When it’s time to go home, all combo lock deposit refunds are issued quickly. Just give the combo lock and your mobile ticket to one of us and we’ll scan you out and hand you a $10 bill. No forms, no IDs, no complications. Sometimes there’s a line, but it moves fast, and it won’t take long to get your money.
Will I be able to use the locker any time I want?
You must have a festival wristband to access the lockers during show hours. When the event is over each night, the grounds are closed, and you will not be able to access the lockers until the following day.
Can I pay for lockers at the event?
Maybe. There is a limited supply of lockers – and all of them are available online right now. Every locker will probably be reserved online before the festival begins. No one knows for sure. If the lockers sell out online, as they have for the past many years, there won’t be any lockers available to rent at the festival – unless someone cancels at the last minute.
If I can't make it to the festival or don't need my locker reservation, can I get a refund?

Yes! Please reach out to us by email at lockers@stagecoachfestival.com by the Friday before your festival weekend. We’d love to give another fan the opportunity to store their belongings.

What happens if I lose my combo lock?
If you lose the combo lock, you will forfeit the $10 deposit. You will receive a new combo lock and will need to pay another refundable $10 deposit. Once you return the new combo lock, you will receive the second deposit back. If you find your “lost” combo lock and can unlock it, you’ll receive your original deposit back too.
Can I change my clothes in your locker tent?
Yes, we’ve got you covered.
Do I bring my own padlock?
No! You cannot use your own lock. You must use the lock provided by us. There is no additional charge for the use of our lock, which remains as our property. A $10.00 refundable lock deposit is collected when you reserve the keyless combo lock online.
If someone had a locker at a previous festival, will the same combination open my locker this weekend?

No. You set your own combination.

Here’s Why:

All locks are removed from the lockers and returned for the $10 deposit at the end of each festival. All combinations are re-set to “0000”. The locks are placed in a bin and one is chosen at random when you check-in. You then personally create your own four-digit code for your Lock.
