Thanks, KMurf. Good to know that not tickets are available for those who couldn't swing a change in their morning schedule.

Here's the semi-official report from Kamp DukTape.

Despite my phone blowing up all morning, and the fact that one of our Kampers apparently needed to be coached on how to use the internet at 8:59:59am yesterday, our success rate was about like usual.  Some people got tickets and some people didn't, but in the end I believe it'll all work out. 

Some people in our group had an incredibly frustrating morning with the new system, and others logged in and scored tickets with no waiting, sweating or worry. 

When the line situation in Town Park changed, we all freaked out a bit, and then we figured out the new line.  I think we've all done our freaking out about the new See Tickets system and ultimately we'll all be back in June, camped in the same spot, surrounded by the same people, and engaging in the same shenanigans we've always engaged in. 

I'm breathing a huge sigh of relief today, and I realize it could have gone much worse for KDT, but either way, for 2020 at least, we're off and running. 

See you all in Town Park in 6 months!

Not really feedback for the sale process in general, but with the big jump in price over what was already getting to be an expensive ticket, I sure would be nice to have a 'teen ticket's that is cheaper than full price.   When the kids start passing 12 it gets a little cost prohibitive to bring a family.   I only have one teen.  A family with 2-3 teens is $2k plus or minus just for tickets with camping.  That leaves a lot of families unable to come or at least not able to come as a family.

I agree with your post .. in as far a the offering of discounted TBF GA tix for teens.  Kinda like the model used by the ski resorts.  Many (or most) of us here haven't had the opportunity to camp during the fest (a substantial savings in lodging!).. and stay in condo's / rentals in town of T-Ride or in Mtn Village ... lodging alone  during the festival is well over over 2K these days (if staying in town -- MAYBE a little less in Mtn Village) .. and that doesn't include the ticket price.

Yes!  Just a 4 day pass for a family of 4 with say a 13 and 15 year old is almost $1200 without even including anything else.  Even with the 'cheap' option of camping it's expensive enough.  But $800+ to $1200+ for two or three kids to tag along is just a lot.  It's not like they take up much more room.  Your Kelty/popup or tarp spot will probably be close to the same with or without them.

Right here with you KMurph. Its hard when your teen begs to come back, even though they really don't care as much about the music.

How much were the camping passes this year? Still hoping for 1 camping pass.

Town Park and Warner were $420. 

A 4 day pass is $295 and Lawson and Mary E camping passes are about $70 and those are probably all still available.

I just talked to a couple people at See Tickets and they said we should receive the wristbands 6 weeks before.  I had to change my delivery method to will call so I could transfer the tickets to my family in a timely manner, USPS with valuable wristbands is too risky.
