TEN other FAQ:
1. Hell yeah, there is going to be an after party. It will be on site in Canterbury this year, a hop skip and a jump from the festival grounds. You will need to be 18+ to party and 21+ to party with adult beverages. We will be announcing the who and what of this soon, but you can get these tickets now with the purchase of your Soundset ticket for a grand total of $35.
There is not a separate ticket for the after party, you can only get access to this event as a combo ticket package.

The VIP ticket includes the following: entrance to the festival and after party, access to a special exclusive VIP area near the main stage, meet and greets with artists, VIP parking, separate restrooms, VIP bar with adult beverages (beer and liquor) and special festival laminates. The VIP ticket is $75.

3. Of course, Soundset 09 is all ages- we are for the kids! And, for those youngsters under the age of 10 you get to experience the music for FREE, but must be accompanied by ticket paying adult. 2 kids per one adult.

4. No, this is not the final lineup for Soundset. We still have other main stage artists to announce, the entire line-up for the Fifth Element stage, the DJs for the Red Bull B-Boy tent, after party performers and DJs and much more.
Stay tuned for regular announcements leading up to soundset 09!
