I saved my tickets and camp spot from last year. What will happen to them?
Your tickets will automatically transfer over from last year. This includes your exact same camp spot and music ticket type. If you had spots reserved with friends, don't worry. If they kept theirs too, you'll all still be together.
I thought I could attend the festival this year, but I can't. Can I still get a refund? If you purchased tickets for 2020 but can no longer attend because of the 2021 dates, you have until June 1 to ask for a refund. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll process your refund.
I just want to come for a day. Will there be day passes?
Yes. Day passes will be available both in advance online and at the gate. You can purchase tickets at thebobmusic.com beginning April 14 at 5 pm.
How long will the advance-priced tickets be available?
We're not sure. We had a lot of advance-priced tickets roll over from last year. That means that there are not as many advance tickets left for this year. And, when the advance priced tickets are gone, they are gone. Be ready to act fast.
How do I volunteer for the festival?
Wow! We love you already. We really need volunteers to make this happen. We are offering $25 credits to people who would like to volunteer. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER. We'll email you your unique $25 online discount code within 24 hours of signing up.
How are you accommodating for COVID-19?
Well, at this point, we're all pretty familiar with COVID and that it can change things in a hurry so as we look to our 2021 festival, we'll all have to remain adaptable and in good spirits. The Bob Marshall Music Festival is in Seeley Lake, Montana and thus is a part of Missoula County. We have been in contact with the Missoula County Health Department and expect that we'll be able to have the festival in August. If regulations are not going in our favor we will cancel with 30 days advanced notice. We will respect the rules and regulations of the Missoula County Health Department.
We will limit the festival to 1,000 attendees this year.
If we cannot hold the festival, refunds will be honored. That is the only case we are honoring refunds.
I can't come, can I get a refunds?
Like stated above, we will honor refunds in a COVID cancellation by the Missoula County Health Department, but that's it. Try selling your passes on Facebook or Stubhub. We have invested lots of money in this event and we are committed to putting it on rain, shine or smoke. If you are buying someone else's ticket and would like to verify the validity, email email@example.com and we'll verify it for you.
Can I bring my dog?
No. Unfortunately, Fido and any other pets have to remain at home.
Can I bring my kid?
Yes. Bring the family. Children 12 and under are free for camping and the music.
Electric Bikes/ATVs/Golf Carts/Motorcycles, etc.
Because of the dust at the camping area, we request that all vehicles including electric bikes, ATVs, golf carts and motorcycles not travel at excessive speeds through the camping area. If you are asked to slow down, please comply.
Can I bring my own beverages?
You can bring your own beverages, food, etc. into the camping area, but in the music area, you will not be able to bring in any outside beverages or coolers. You must purchase beverages from our alcohol caterer in the music area. They are taking on the liability for this event and thus we ask that you respect this and purchase your alcohol from them. They have really great beer, wine and seltzers. You'll be pleased.
I'm a food vendor and I want to be at the festival. How can I get in on the Bob?
We are limiting the festival to 4 food vendors. If you're interested in being a vendor, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll select our food vendor applicants by the end of April. Be sure to include the menu of what you plan to serve and your prices. Are you planning on serving breakfast, lunch and dinner? If you are accepted, we'll need all your other fun info like health department catering certifications and to be listed as co-insured on your insurance policy, etc.
I'm a crafter and I want to be at the festival. How can I get in on the Bob?
Email email@example.com if you're interested in selling you wares at the Bob Marshall Music Festival. Selling commercial items? Send an email as well and we can determine if your items are a good fit for the festival. Just to save you the time - we won't be allowing any t-shirt or clothing vendors.
I'm a musician and I'd like to play at the festival. How can I get in on the Bob?
We've booked all the acts for this year, but you're welcome to submit your information for next year to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You haven't gotten back to me. When can I expect a reply?
We are doing our very best to respond to everyone within 24 hours.
CAMPING AT THE BOB
Can I switch my camping spot?
Can I have a camp fire?
In previous years, there was a group campfire in the campground area. Can I have my spot next to that campfire? Or, far away from that campfire?
That was pretty cool to have, wasn't it?! Unfortunately, our insurance company has spoken and there will be no group campfire in the campground area. There will be campfire in the music area in the evenings if fire regulations permit, but that's it. No other campfires.
In the past we've been pretty relaxed about quiet times, but in 2019 there were quite a few complaints and in the interest of a good night's rest, we have hired a security company to enforce quiet hours. Quiet hours are 1 am to 8 am.
More info on camping:
Camping check-in will begin on Thursday, August 5 at 3 pm. And, no earlier! Seriously, you can't come earlier cus you'll get backed up on the highway and we'll get in trouble so don't come early or we'll send you away to come back at 3 pm. Thanks for working with us on this one!
