The Great Beyond is for savages, the bus is not. The driver and other guests don't have time for your shit. The bus driver is under no obligation to make special requests for any individual. Please arrive ahead of time. If you're not on board when the bus is scheduled to leave, it will leave without you.
It's a 55 passenger bus chartered via Jefferson Lines.
The company provides safe and reliable drivers. The journey is approximately 1:40 to the gates of The Great Beyond. Jackpot Junction is an additional 20 minutes further. There are no assigned seats. It is first-come, first-serve.
No. Please don't ask for one either. Due to the short distance, there will be no pit-stops or smoke breaks. There's a toilet on board, and you can buy ice at the campground or in the hotel.
You'll just need your ticket in-hand (paper or electronic). ID is not required and name doesn't need to match. If you bought the ticket from a stranger, we recommend requesting a name change by emailing The Ticketing Co. website. They will do this free of charge
Bring whatever you need to get through the weekend. There is space for your luggage. If it makes it on the plane, it can make it on the bus. Ideally, bigger items such as large coolers, folding tables, large tents should be sent along with friends in another vehicle. If something is illegal, you can't bring it on the bus. Unfortunately, Minnesota is not a recreational state yet, so that means weed too, Cheech.
Yes, but it has to remain packed away. No open containers are allowed. It's two hours, you'll live.
No. It will depart on schedule and leave without anybody who didn't arrive in time. If you're worried about missing the bus due to flight delays or traffic, please prepare in advance.
Your seat belongs to your ticket, both ways. If you miss the first leg on Friday, you still have a ride back to the airport on Monday. You'll be responsible for organizing another ride to The Great Beyond. We won't refund any portion of the ticket, and we won't pay for your new travel expenses. We heard an Uber trip was quoted to be $140+, so don't miss the bus.
Yes. The person must have a ticket in hand (paper or electronic). Buyers: if you don't know the seller, the ticketing website offers a name change service free of charge. The seller just needs to email them and the change. If you leave festival early or find a different ride, you are welcome to give your return trip seat to someone else.
The airport is roughly 20 minutes from Downtown Minneapolis. Hotels downtown are generally more expensive but the restaurant options are better. Hotels near the airport are cheaper. If you want just want "easy," stay near the airport. The Mall of America is right next door and can be accessed via the Light Rail train from the airport. You can find plenty of food, drinks, stock up on gear, or just marvel at the complete absurdity of it all.
No. We love you, but don't turn it on. Ever. That goes for speakerphone and singing, too.
