Is it okay to buy from a third party?

Only wristbands purchased through the Moon River ticket website (Front Gate Tickets) are guaranteed to be authentic. If you want 100% confidence in your ticket purchase, you should only purchase your tickets through the link on our tickets page.

Please be aware:

  • We are not responsible for any counterfeit weekend passes.
  • For your own protection, please do not purchase weekend passes from any source other than moonriverfest.com or your most trusted friends and family.
  • Removing a wristband automatically voids it (unless by accident or for safety reasons, in which case you need to get a replacement wristband from a customer service booth at the festival – this will require you to prove your purchase information). Festival Security will check every wristband to assure it has not been removed or passed between multiple people.
