When do tickets go on sale?

Do you have payment plans?

Easy monthly payment plans will now be available with any LIB ticket purchase, not just your Festival Pass. Just select “Affirm” as your payment method (instead of a credit card) during checkout and pick from a three or six month installment plan. When you used Affrm to buy tickets to Lightning in a Bottle on Eventbrite, you’ll go through a quick application process. Affirm provides a real-time credit decision and, if approved, allows you to choose between 3 or 6 monthly payments (rates from 10-30% APR)*.

Will there be two day or single day tickets?

No single day or 2-day passes will be available in the 2017 pre-sale or general onsale. LIB is a 4 (or 5) day experience!

I can no longer attend LIB, can I have a refund?

All sales are final. No refunds.

Who should I contact for questions or concerns regarding online ticket orders and wristband and shipping questions?

If you have any technical questions regarding your credentials or concerns with your shipment details, please call or email Eventbrite.

Do I need a hard ticket to get in the festival?

Your wristband will take the place of a traditional ticket, and will be automatically shipped to you in advance of the event. If you buy your ticket after the cut-off date to have it mailed you will go to Will Call at the entrance of the event to get your wristband.

When will I get my wristband in the mail?

4-Day Weekend Passes have already began shipping. Delivery time is usually 5-7 business days. When your order has shipped, you will receive an email from fulfillment@eventbrite.com with your shipment tracking info. The last day to order wristbands with shipping is May 10th, 2017.

IMPORTANT: Wristbands will be sent to the shipping address submitted at ticket checkout. You can verify your shopping address at http://eventbrite.com, however shipping addresses can no longer be updated.

Do I have to sign for my package?

How and when do I apply my wristband?

You will receive exact instructions on how to apply your wristband with your package. Do not put on your wristband before you have received and carefully read the instructions included. Please make sure to put on the wristband uniquely registered to you.

Please do not remove the excess portion of the wristband or tamper with your wristband in any way. Do not cut it, burn it, stretch it or fold it. Altered wristbands will be invalid and any person in possession of an altered wristband will be charged a replacement fee or may be ejected from the festival site.

How do I know if a wristband is real or counterfeit?

Fake or deactivated wristbands may look like the real thing but they will be identified by our scanning system at each venue entrance.

Only orders placed through the Eventbrite website are guaranteed to be authentic. We do not want any of our fans to be scammed.

Please be aware:

  • We are not responsible for any counterfeit tickets or wristbands.
  • In addition, any wristbands reported lost or stolen will have their RFID chip deactivated and will not be valid.
  • For your own protection, please do not purchase Lightning in a Bottle wristbands from any third party sellers.
  • Those in possession of fake wristbands or ones reported lost or stolen will not be admitted to the festival.
  • There are no hard tickets being sold or distributed this year. If someone tries to sell or give you a paper ticket DO NOT take it. EVERYONE will need a wristband to enter the festival.
