There are a variety of ticketing options available for the Contour Music Festival. This means that you’ll be able to customize your experience based on your schedule and budget. If you’re only in town for one day/night, consider purchasing a Single Day Main Stage Pass or a Single Late Night Show Pass. (You can listen to the acts on the CMF website beforehand and decide which performance you’d like to see.) For visitors who want to check out at least two days of the festival, the Main Stage Weekend Pass is ideal. You can even upgrade to an All Night Long Pass which gives you access to two late night events as long as there is capacity at the venue.

If you’re a music fanatic, the Peak/VIP Pass is for you. This ticket grants visitors entry into all main stage and late night shows. Yes, it’s expensive, but it’s well worth the money! Check out the festival’s FAQ page for updates and details.
