  6. Can I purchase a pass for a friend/as a gift?

    Sure! Please indicate the alternate shipping address and/or Will Call pick up name during the purchase process.

  7. How do I put on my wristband?
    • Handle your wristband carefully to assure you don’t pull it closed before you put it on.
    • When you’re ready to attend Music City Food + Wine, place the wristband over the RIGHT wrist.
    • Have a pal place two fingers between your wrist & the wristband.
    • Tighten the wristband to the two fingers between your wrist & the wristband by sliding the plastic locker down – holding the ends of the wristband greatly helps the slide. Be careful to not tighten your wristband too much, as we cannot replace it.
    • Do not cut the ends of the wristband. This will void the wristband & it cannot be replaced.
    • Treat your wristband like cash – lost, stolen, tampered with, and/or confiscated wristbands will not be replaced!
    • Do not remove your wristband until you plan to leave the event for the final time.
  8. What do I do if I lose my wristbands/tickets, want a refund, etc?

    Treat your wristband like cash. All passes to Music City Food + Wine are non-refundable, non-transferable and will not be replaced if lost or stolen. All wristbands must be worn and displayed in clear sight at all Music City Food + Wine events. Please do not remove Music City Food + Wine wristband the duration of your visit and do not remove your wristband until you plan to leave the event for the final time.

  9. When and where do I get my wristband?

    Most of the wristbands and tickets for the festival will be mailed out within 4-6 weeks of the event. If you have moved or haven’t received your pass within 72 hours from the event, please contact Front Gate Tickets at support.frontgatetickets.com or 888-512-7469.

    However, if you selected Will Call or you purchased your passes within a couple of weeks of the festival, they can be picked up at Will Call at the Box Office Tent on site at the Festival.
