Children at the Festival

Shaky Knees is all ages, although we highly recommend not bringing in children under 8 years of age. Children 8 and under get in free with a ticketed adult. Limit 2 kids per ticketed adult.

Take advantage of our free Tag-a-Kid service. Stop by the Guest Services Tent near the North entrance, where parents can register their kids with the festival with a specialty wristband. In the event a child is separated from their parent, we have a reliable and fast way to reunite them.

Buying From Third-Party Sellers

If you want 100% confidence in your ticket purchase, you should only purchase your tickets on our Tickets page,, Ticketmaster Verified Exchange, or one of our authorized ticketing partners: Fevo or Verve. In the event of a festival cancellation, your tickets may only be refunded when purchased through these avenues. Tickets from other websites or resellers cannot be verified by the festival.

Often times people will sell their wristbands to others if they cannot attend a certain day. Unfortunately, removing a wristband automatically voids it. Festival Security will check every wristband to assure it has not been removed.

Mobile App


The Official Festival App is discontinued. In the meantime, all of our websites are very mobile friendly. We'll send a message to everyone on our E-List and post to our social media channels when a new Mobile App is released.
