Your admission fee gets you into the entire 2 1/2 day event, beginning with the party on Friday night, so plan to arrive early! After a day of traveling and setting up, unwind with a few drinks and see some unique gear-centric performances. It's a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and make some new ones.
Those wishing only to attend the party on Friday night must still purchase a pass for the event.
Doors open at 6 pm, music starts at 7pm and runs until 11pm or so. Schedule TBD.
