In our heart of hearts we hoped and prayed that COVID-19 would not prevent us from having the 2020 Louisville Trifesta. In what feels like a repetitive bad dream, we now have to announce that Hometown Rising, Louder Than Life and Bourbon & Beyond festivals, held at Highland Festival Grounds at Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, KY, are being cancelled for 2020. We are working really hard to bring as much of our 2020 lineups back to 2021.
Even though the festivals are not until September, the advanced planning realities of producing three back-to-back-to-back events have necessitated that a decision be made sooner than later. Our decision also conforms with the advice of health officials.
As with our other cancelled events, we will be offering full refunds to our fans. All purchasers (including transfers from Welcome to Rockville, Sonic Temple and Epicenter) will be notified of their options and procedures via email next week.
We are truly heartbroken it has come to this. We want to thank you for your patience, support and loyalty. We hope you are staying safe as well as physically and mentally well. We are blessed to have such an amazing Festival Family, and together, as a community, we will get through this.
Refund & Deferral FAQs
Emails with complete details on refunds or deferring to 2021 went out on April 28. If you did not receive, please read through our full FAQ’s to see if we can answer your question. If not, please send us an email at email@example.com
The refund window for Louder Than Life is now closed. If you requested, the refunds are in process and you should be seeing the funds back to your original point of purchase very soon. If you did not request a refund, your pass(es) have been deferred to 2021.
The window to request a refund or to manually defer your passes for 2021 has closed. If you did not request either, your passes have been automatically deferred to 2021.
Front Gate has recommended to process your refund via the refund process via logging into your Front Gate account to obtain the full refund including the insurance fee that you paid. Should you decide to request a refund through the insurance company that you purchased through, they will likely keep their fee. Hope this helps in the process of your decision.
You will be receiving an email directly from Front Gate Tickets when your refund request has been processed. Front Gate Tickets currently anticipates that it will take as little as 30 days from the date you requested your refund to be processed. Once a refund request is processed, it will take 7-10 business days from the date in which your refund was processed for funds to be deposited back to your original method of payment. We thank you in advance for your patience.
You will be receiving an email confirming your deferral to 2021. Please be patient, it may take up to 30 days for us to process and reply.
Nope – your passes will automatically roll over to 2021, for the same price and pass type in which you purchased.
The deadline was May 23rd.
Please note that if you purchased your passes via our layaway plan and requested a refund, it will process in separate installments (matching your original payment amounts) back to the original payment method used for each scheduled payment. Front Gate Tickets currently anticipates that it will take as little as 30 days from the date you requested your refund to be processed. All refunds will be applied within 7-10 business days of the first refund, for some it happens in the same days and for others it happens over a few days (depending on your financial institution). No additional funds will be pulled from your account.
Once a refund request is processed, it will no longer appear in your order history. If you already requested your refund, this likely means your request has been processed.
If you have questions or concerns about this, please email your Order ID number to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you haven’t seen your funds returned to their account and it’s been past 10 business days since your refund was processed, please contact your bank. Depending on your bank sometimes it takes longer for them to receive the refunds.
Unfortunately, it is a Front Gate protocol that all refunds go back to the original method of payment even if you were to update your payment information. Once your refund has been processed, please reach out to your financial institution (even if the account is closed). Our understanding is that the financial institutions will be credited and should be able to easily assist you. If you have further questions regarding this matter, we suggest reaching out to Front Gate Tickets by calling 888-512-7469.
Unfortunately, our only ticketing partner is Front Gate Tickets, and we do not have any official 3rd party ticket resellers for our festival. We are not responsible for 3rd party ticket reseller refund policies.
Please note that you will not be charged in May. We will be emailing all layaway deferrals in late May with an update on new payment dates, including the option to extend your payment plan to amortize over additional months.
While we are unable to assist with independently reserved hotel or travel arrangements, here are some helpful tips:
- If you booked a hotel room directly outside of the DWP provided reservation platform; please contact your hotel to address specific questions related to your reservation.
- If you made your hotel reservation through one of our event websites, and need to cancel or modify your reservation, please e-mail those requests to email@example.com, or contact 800-559-2340, and a representative will be happy to assist you. Please be ready to provide them with your reservation #, city of reservation, and hotel property.
At this time, this is not a question we can honestly answer. Our focus at this moment is to ensure all fans are taken care of from our 2020 festival cancellations and we will then be working diligently to curate an incredible experience for 2021. We are working really hard to bring as much of our 2020 lineups back to 2021. Stay tuned.
No. If you request a refund, you will be refunded for your full purchase. If you purchased your t-shirt on a separate order, you will need to request that to be refunded as well. If you opt to defer your passes to 2021, your t-shirt order will also be deferred to 2021. Same thing as the refund request, if you would like to defer your t-shirt to 2021 and purchased on a separate order, you will need to fill out the defer form for your t-shirt as well.
Unfortunately, we are unable to honor promotional tickets for use in 2021.
