Whats the crowd like?

All awesome people. It’s mostly a chill fun vibe, average age 23-39. Social and welcoming. Close-minded people please do not come. You can still buy tickets… just don’t come.

How does the entry work?

After reserving your ticket online, you can choose to print your ticket at home and bring it or download a barcode on your smartphone to be scanned at the gate for admission. Make sure to download the barcode and have your phone’s brightness turned all the way up before you get to the entry gate. One admission per one ticket. First come first serve seating once inside NightLight.

No, tickets to each event are limited in quantity and the event may completely sell out in advance (which may mean no tickets available for purchase at gate either).   Best to secure your “advance tickets” before they run out.

Yes they are! The names on the tickets & season passes do not need to match the ticket holder, so long as the individual is 21+ and up & has proper ID at the gate
