The Third Coast Music Festival takes center stage the last weekend in April with 40 bands and 50 shows held on historic Galveston Island. This new island festival features bands of numerous genres and venues across the city. This isn’t a festival in a field; it’s a unique experience for guests to hear some of the nation’s best live music while interacting with various venues and locations in Galveston.
General Admission & VIP Tickets
General Admission: GA wristbands allow access to all official festival performances, including the Sunday night show at The Grand 1894 Opera House (first come, first served based on venue capacity). For Sunday: More than 600 seats are confirmed for GA pass holders. You’ll receive a number when you pick up your wristband that’ll serve as your place in line for the Rodney show. So, you can be guaranteed admission if you are within the first 600 people to order GA passes! Even if you’re not in the first 600 to purchase, there will likely be people who do not attend that show and that will allow more people in line to attend.
VIP : VIP wristbands allow access to all official festival performances, exclusive VIP only events, merchandise and more! VIP wristbands are limited and once they’re gone, they’re gone! VIPs are guaranteed admission to the Sunday evening Rodney Crowell show (Joe Robinson opens). VIP passes are limited to 200 and the floor seats closest to the stage will be reserved for VIPs. They will receive early admission (before the doors officially open) to pick their seat. The time the doors open will be posted closer to the festival.
