Volunteer shifts are open for the Bastrop Music Festival in exchange for a weekend wristband! If you can commit, click here to sign-up and we’ll be in touch with details. Help us make our first year the best!


Advance tickets are on sale online and at the BMF box office (602 on Main) during the event itself. If capacity permits, there will be tickets sold at the door of each venue which is good for that one night at that venue only. An attendee wanting to go to another venue or on another night can pay at the door each time, but the far better value is the festival wristband.

Shows run simultaneously at the various venues with nighttime shows starting at approximately 6 p.m. and ending at closing time. There will be daytime activities which are free and open to the public. This includes live music at the box office location and on Saturday. There will also be free shows specifically geared toward children.

What is the policy with regards to minors/children?

Each person (regardless of age) needs a wristband for admittance to the venues. Since Third Coast Music Festival takes place in 10+ venues, each of those clubs, restaurants, and hotels has their own policies. Here are those policies, as we are informed:

  • Neighbor’s – all ages
  • Viejo’s – 18+
  • Old Town – all ages
Will I receive tickets in the mail, or do I pick them up?

Tickets will not be mailed. Instead, each attendee will receive a wristband which can be picked up at the Bastrop box offices. The person who paid for the passes will need to present a government issued picture I.D. (driver’s license, passport). Your online receipt is helpful, but not required. If multiple passes were ordered at the same time, only the person who bought the tickets needs to be present to pick up the wristbands.

The Bastrop Music Festival box office is located at 602 on Main (919 Main Street in downtown Bastrop). Times are as follows:

  • Thursday, May 17 – 1 pm to 10 pm
  • Friday, May 18 – 1 pm to 10 pm
  • Saturday, May 19 – 1 pm to 6 pm (and at Neighbors after 6 pm)

*Bring a photo ID when picking up tickets.

Does my ticket guarantee admission to all shows?

For the concerts at BMF: Venues have varying capacity restrictions. If the capacity limit is reached, it’ll be one-in, one-out.
