Layaway Plans: Everything You Need To Know

west stage

Intrigued by our layaway plans? Well, here’s the deal…layaway plans are WAY easier to use than you’d think. Here’s a breakdown of how to get a ticket for just $20 down.

First, visit, choose your ticket type then put it in your cart. Continue to check out like normal. Then select “layaway plan” near the end of the checkout process (it’ll be hard to miss). The only additional charge for using a layaway plan as opposed to buying all at once is a fee of $10 (Pro tip: this fee isn’t even per ticket, it’s per order. Get with your friends to buy in bulk to save.)


For 1 GA ticket at tier 1 price, all fees AND shipping included*
$21 due at purchase
$95 on January 31
$95 on February 28
$95 on March 27
$95 April 24

*rounded to the nearest full dollar amount. And you’ll notice this ends up higher than the listed price because all taxes, etc. are included) After your first payment is made, the follow-up payments will be drawn automatically from the same payment method on the specified due dates. If you would like to update your payment info afterwards, you can do so in your Front Gate Tickets account that you create when you purchase or reach out to Front Gate Tickets Support.

WHAT ABOUT YACHT CLUB OR VIP? Yep! Layaway plans can be used for all 3-day ticket options. So go ahead and use a layaway plan to split up a Yacht Club or VIP purchase, but note that the payments are based off of a percentage. The initial payment will be $23 for a Yacht Club ticket, and $27 for a VIP ticket. See the payment schedule for Yacht Club and VIP on the tickets page.

CAN I CHANGE MY PAYMENT METHOD OR PAY IT OFF EARLY? Ok, overachiever! Yes, when you buy a ticket you are required to create an online account with Front Gate Tickets (our official ticket provider). Simply go back to (where you buy the tickets in the first place) and click “sign in” at the top. From there you can manage your orders, change credit cards or shipping address on file, and even pay it all off early if you’d like.
