Lawyaway Plans For Dummies

Ok, so layaway plans are waaaaay easier to use than you’d think. Here’s a breakdown of how to get a ticket for just $30 down during pre-sale (starting on black Friday at noon ET!).

First, just click your favorite ticket link like anyone else on, then put it in your cart and keep on going towards checkout like normal. Then select “layaway plan” near the end of the checkout process (it’ll be hard to miss). The only additional charge for using a layaway plan as opposed to buying all at once is a fee of $10 (and this fee isn’t even per ticket, it’s per order.)

For 1 GA ticket at tier 1 price on 11/29, all fees AND shipping included*
  • $30 due at purchase
  • $82 on January 10
  • $82 on February 7
  • $82 on March 6
  • $82 April 3
  • *rounded to the nearest full dollar amount

After your first payment is made, the follow-up payments will be drawn automatically from the same payment method on the specified due dates. If you would like to update your payment info afterwards, you can do so in your Front Gate Tickets account that you create when you purchase or reach out to Front Gate Tickets Support.


Of course! Layaway plans can be used for most things over $280 (everything but shuttle packages). So go ahead and use a layaway plan to split up a VIP or Platinum purchase, but note that the payments are based off of a percentage. The initial payment will be $54 for a pair of VIP tickets, and about $137 for a pair of Platinum tickets. See the payment schedule for VIP and Platinum on the tickets page.


No problem. When you buy a ticket you are required to create an online account with Front Gate Tickets (our official ticket provider). Simply go back to (where you buy the tickets in the first place) and click “sign in” at the top. From there you can manage your orders, change credit cards or shipping address on file, and even pay it all off early if you’d like.

  • MORE TIER 1 TICKETS FOR PRE-SALE! Bonnaroovians love their pre-sale tickets… maybe TOO MUCH. In the past few years, tier 1 has sold out REALLY fast, so this year we added more tickets at our lowest price point so more people will get a chance to experience Bonnaroo for the best price possible. Explore our tickets page here.
  • NEW GA+ TICKETS Get all the classic goodness of GA along with access to a brand new Centeroo lounge just for GA+. Enjoy AC bathrooms, exclusive bars and food vendors, and plenty of relaxed shaded seating to rest those dancing feet. Learn more on the tickets page.
  • FASTER CAMPGROUND ENTRY! You asked, and we’re listening. We are adding tolls, security, and staff as well as shifting some campground layouts to get you parked FASTER. Less time in line is the priority, so you can get your party started sooner. Also, generally speaking, those who arrive earlier will be camped closer to the venue – no more using a crystal ball and a Ouija board to guess.
  • GROOP PLAZA! Groop has grown each year and it’s time we gave our most passionate fans even more. We’re adding a dedicated GROOP camping plaza in the campgrounds complete with all the usual Plaza accoutrements like shade, games, and more. Learn more on the groop camping page here
  • VIP IMPROVEMENTS: New VIP campground layout which will provide direct entry into the venue and the mound at the What Stage. More convenient placement for amenities in the venue as well as more showers and restrooms in the campgrounds. learn more about VIP HERE.
  • PLATINUM IMPROVEMENTS: The best ticket we offer now has BY FAR the best campground and amenities on the entire site, all in a new spot directly south of Centeroo. All the amenities of Platinum PLUS your own dedicated Platinum vehicle entrance off Campground Road as well as a completely shaded and wooded campground with newly added access to the Artist Lounge. learn more about Platinum HERE.
  • The WHICH STAGE is glowing up! Bonnaroo’s second biggest stage is due for a production facelift, and in 2020 it’ll be getting a makeover to up it’s WOW factor and generate a much higher rate of positivity radiation straight into your brain.
  • The Other Stage ALL NIGHT LONG! Bonnaroo’s home for electronic is now playing all night long until sunrise as well as adding more production, more fire🔥, more lasers😲, and other surprises you’ll just have to see for yourself.
  • BETTER WAYFINDING, COOLING, INFO, AND MORE Some little things can make a BIG difference. With that in mind we’re adding better signage, wayfinding help, pedicabs, info booths, and more to the campgrounds this year. Let’s make these campgrounds even better.
  • CRAZINESS IN THE CAMPGROUNDS: Plazas are back and better than ever, but you’ll have to hang tight for more 2020 details soon!
