What if I lost my ticket?

If you lose your ticket, we are able to redeem it through our system at the gates. If the ticket was won in a contest, promotion, or given to you for free, we will not be able to look it up and redeem it and you will need to purchase a new ticket.

How do I transfer my ticket to someone else?

The only way to ensure you have genuine tickets to events at the Pines Music Park is to purchase them directly from our websites. If you purchase tickets from an unauthorized agent in the secondary market (scalper, ticket broker, eBay, Craigslist, etc.) you risk purchasing counterfeit or invalid tickets. If you do purchase tickets through a 3rd party or wish to sell your tickets, we ask that you take the proper precautions to avoid getting scammed. VIEW TICKET TRANSFER INSTRUCTIONS HERE 1. DO NOT ACCEPT PRINTED TICKETS OR EMAILED PDF DOCUMENTS. These can be replicated and sent to anyone. 2. Use only purchase protected payment methods such as PayPal and make sure you send payment for goods or services, so purchase protection is in effect. MANY SCAMMERS WILL ASK YOU TO PAY A CERTAIN WAY TO AVOID THESE OFFICIAL SERVICES SO THEY CAN KEEP YOUR MONEY. You may need to clear it with the ticket seller first, as these payment methods do charge the seller a small fee, well worth the insurance though when purchasing from an unknown individual. 3. ONLY ACCEPT TICKETS THAT HAVE BEEN OFFICIALLY TRANSFERRED THROUGH THE PINES MUSIC PARK TICKETING PAGE! Each event at the Pines has it's own ticketing page. To access the ticketing page, make sure to go to the event's landing page and select the 'BUY NOW' button for tickets/campsites. This is the only way to ensure that you have a real ticket. Instructions on how to properly transfer tickets can be found in our Ticket Transfer PDF file. When using the transfer process, tickets will be moved from the seller’s Pines Music Park/Blue Ox Festival account to the buyer’s Pines Music Park ticketing account.
