Tickets & Wristbands

What is the difference between a single day and a 3-Day Ticket?

A single day ticket is valid for ONE person to attend ONE day, either Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Specific day is chosen at the time of purchase. A 3-Day ticket is valid for ONE person to attend ALL 3 Days.

How do I purchase tickets?

Tickets are sold through TicketMaster, please visit our TICKET page for a breakdown of tickets, prices, description, and a link to our Ticketmaster store: TICKET PAGE


I bought a 3-Day Ticket and can no longer attend all 3 days. Can I share my ticket/wristband with someone else?

No.  You will be given ONE wristband per 3-Day ticket.  The 3-Day wristband must be used by the same person for the duration of the event.  The 3-Day tickets/wristbands are not transferable or shareable between people and days.

I accidentally damaged or lost my wristband, what should I do?
Any damaged or tampered with wristbands will not be allowed for accessing the TC Summer Jam. 
Do I need to purchase a camping pass if I am only attending for one day?
If you want to access the campgrounds, you must have a 3-day festival ticket with camping access. If you currently have a single day ticket and want to go into the campgrounds, you will need to upgrade to a 3-day ticket and purchase camp access. Single day ticket holders are not allowed into the campgrounds.
