General Admission


General Admission Tickets grant you access into the festival, and are considered lawn seating within the concert bowl (bring your own chair or blanket). Fencing or roping off an areas within the concert bowl is STRICTLY prohibited!

  • If your wristband has been tampered with or removed, please note that you will not be issued another one. ONE ticket = ONE wristband for the ENTIRE festival.
  • Wristbands are issued exclusively at the Country Thunder festival gates. Wristbands are secured on the wrists of patrons only by Country Thunder staff. If offered a wristband outside of the festival gates, you can assume it is counterfeit.


Parking is sold separately and there are several options available: Daily Parking Pass, Weekend Day Parking Pass, Weekend Overnight Parking Pass, Extra Vehicle Pass (for 2nd Vehicle on Campsite).

Please visit Rules & Regulations for a list of what we suggest you bring, and what we prefer you leave at home.

Children 12 and under are free with the purchase of an adult ticket.

EZ-Pay  If you want to split your Country Thunder purchase into 3 easy installments, take advantage of our EZ-Pay option. After you have selected your items and have placed them in your shopping cart, make sure to select the EZ-Pay option!  Instead of paying the full amount up-front, make your first payment today and pay the remaining balance on a monthly basis (payments are made automatically on the same day of each month). The first ticket send out occurs in the Fall, so if your final payment is received after that time, the tickets will be automatically e-mailed to the address you provided in your profile. 

Defaulted EZ-Payments:

After 3 failed automatic attempts by Elevate to process payment, Country Thunder will issue at least one warning via email and phone to the account contact information on file.  If we do not hear back from you within 2 weeks, your order will be deleted without refund.


Country Thunder is a privately owned company. We do not discriminate, but reserve the right to refuse service and admittance to any person if actions are deemed malicious, inappropriate and/or abusive towards staff and other patrons. 

We will not and cannot verify a third party sale of a ticket. Buyer beware on all sales when it is not from an authorized ticket seller. We encourage you when purchasing a ticket to purchase it from an authorized ticket seller.
