FAQ

I have questions about  the event, who should I contact?

Please read through the FAQ’s first, there are answers to many commonly asked questions.  If you don’t find the answer to your question, you can message us through our Facebook page, or email us at info@burningrfoot.beer.  PLEASE understand that the week of the event, we are very busy building the festival grounds, and do not have great signal, so our response time may be very delayed.  The day of the event, it will be difficult to reach anyone from the committee, as we are at the festival grounds very early, and again, with limited signal. The best option the day of the event is to come to the beach and ask at the information tent located at the festival entrance.

How much is each ticket to Burning Foot?

General admission tickets are $50.00 each ($55 day of event) and include 15 drink tickets. We will also have music all day long and a national music act as our headliner all included. Tent & RV/Trailer camping tickets are additional.  VIP tickets are $125 each, DD tickets are $20 each.
