Are There Tickets For Gonerfest 18?

TICKETS ARE NOW AVAILABLE!

We will also have a limited amount of tickets for each day available at the door.

What are the COVID Safety Precautions for Gonerfest?
- We take the safety of our guests and our employees, and everyone involved with the festival, very seriously. We want to hold our event as safely as we can. In order to do so, we are following these procedures:

Everyone must show proof of vaccination to enter. Bands included. Either bring your vaccination card or take a picture of it on your phone.

In addition, masks must be worn while at Railgarten.

See more on COVID Safety at Gonerfest here.

Where is the festival going to be held this year?
-We are holding the entire event outside at Railgarten, a large facility able to host all our bands and guests. Opening and Closing Ceremonies, too.

We have holding tickets to 50% of capacity of Railgarten. It is a huge space. You will have room to get away from people.

Gonerfest is a bit different from their usual fare.

When can I pick up my Golden Pass?
- PLEASE try to your Golden Pass early and help keep lines down. We will be setting people up with passes starting Wednesday at the Goner Records Store. We will also be set up at Central Station Hotel (in the train station downtown) getting people Golden Passes from Noon til 3pm Thursday afternoon before the festival.

When will the lineup be announced?
- We have the lineup here. Unfortunately Negative Approach had a death in the family and have had to cancel, and USA/Mexico cannot make it as well. We are working on more-than-worthy replacements as you sleep.

Is Henry Rollins really going to be there?
-Henry was coming,  but had to cancel.

Where is the festival going to be held this year?
-We are holding the entire event outside at Railgarten, a large facility able to host all our bands and guests.

This includes Opening And Closing Ceremonies!

Unfortunately we are not ready to cram into the sweaty, packed rooms that make prior Gonerfests previously so much fun. This will be different, and will be great.

Where should I stay?
- This is the first time we have partnered with a hotel for discounted rates only for Gonerfest. We had rooms reserved for us at Central Station Memphis, a brand new Curio Hotel by Hilton in the historic Memphis Train Station downtown. Unfortunately those rooms are booked.

There are also a number of new hotels that have sprung up in Memphis during the pandemic, including The Memphian which is .7 Miles away from Railgarten in Overton Square.

There are also Air BnB's in the Midtown area where the festival is being held, and affordable smaller motels if that's your jam.

Can I Watch On My Computer?
-Yes! Last year we did an all-virtual festival and it was a blast! We have learned a lot during the pandemic and especially from running our Gonerfest online and our Goner TV shows. We are streaming all the events for Gonerfest 18! The streaming ticket is included with your Golden Pass, or you can buy a separate Streaming Pass for $20. Tickets for that are here.
