  • Where do I pick up my ticket? When can I pick up my tickets?

    • BTMF ticket holders must exchange their tickets (printed ticket or confirmation email ready on phone) for wristbands before going to any BTMF venues. More information on wristband exchanges will be available in the new year. Wristbands are non-transferrable and non-refundable. One wristband per person. Each individual accessing the event must have their wristband on the their wrist at all times.

  • Does my wristband let me see all the artists performing?

    • Yes! Your wristband is your ticket to enter the festival, each venue, and all artist performances. Note there are venue capacities that are required for each venue. Arrive early if there’s a band you REALLY want to see. 

  • Can I change my ticket from a one day to a two day?

    • Yes. Contact us at and we’ll be able to provide guidance on changing your ticket. We look forward to seeing you both nights!

  • I can no longer make it. Can I get a refund? 

    • No, we are not able to offer refunds. We are able to transfer your ticket to another individual’s name. Please contact us at to transfer your ticket.

  • What if a venue is full?

    • With 21 venues ranging in size from 30 capacity to 500, it’s bound to happen. But no fear! There are plenty of venues and space for nearly 3,500 people - meaning plenty of venues will have capacity. 

  • What if there’s inclement weather?

    • We're Minnesotans - we know the weather in Febrrruary can be tough, but feel confident that BTMF will happen rain or shine or snow or blizzard.
