How do I buy a festival pass?

Passes go on sale in early 2019. Buy tickets at Volume.inlander.com/tickets, and pick them up at the festival. On Friday, pick up your tickets outside the Washington Cracker Co. Building (304 W. Pacific Ave.) from 4:30 to 9 pm. On Saturday, ticket pick-up is from 4:30 to 8 pm. Don’t miss those pick-up times! You can also buy in person at Paper and Cup (1227 W. Summit Parkway) and at any Global Credit Union location.


How do I get from venue to venue?

Well, use your own two feet. Or, better yet, display your festival pass and hop a free ride on the Spokane Party Bus.


How do you keep the festival passes so cheap? Are the musicians getting paid?

Yes, performers get paid. Volume is able to keep the price low in part thanks to our presenting sponsor, Global Credit Union, and hotel partner, Hotel RL.


Are kids allowed? Are they free?

Many of the venues are open to all ages. Kids 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult with a festival pass.


What if a performer I want to see cancels?

We will do our best to notify everyone of any schedule changes, but lineups are subject to change, at any time, without notice. All sales are final.


What is the refund policy?

All sales are final for all Volume passes. Volume reserves the right to cancel any parts of the event, in circumstances Volume deems unsafe for festival goers and musicians. In case of such a cancellation, tickets will not be refunded.
