There is certainly no denying that EDC is expensive – the tickets are among the most expensive of any music festival, Las Vegas hotels are pricey and full of hidden fees, you have to pay to travel there, and on and on. For a lot of us it can be financially stressful to book your trip to EDC. Enter the EDC Layaway Plan! This is EDC’s payment plan that allows you to break up the cost of the passes into more manageable payments. This article will go over all the info you need about the plan so you know what you expectwhen it’s time for you to purchase your EDC tickets.
The layaway plan divides your pass into multiple payments, making it more manageable. You pay a deposit when you first purchase passes, and then the rest of the pass is paid off incrementally throughout the year. EDC offers payment plans on nearly everything: tickets, camping packages, and even the shuttle passes. They all work the same way: you divide up the total cost into multiple payments.
Yes! The layaway plan can be applied to both EDC GA and EDC VIP passes.
This depends on when you purchase your passes. The earlier you snag your EDC passes, the more time and thus payments your pass will be divided into. Check out the sample schedule provided by EDC:
As you can see the prices change as do the number of payments you get the longer you wait. If you purchase tickets early you get 6 payments, and if you wait until October you get 5 payments. This trend continues as the year goes on. As an example, in March you can still do a payment plan but it splits your tickets into two payments. The short version is I recommend deciding if you want to go to EDC early so you can take advantage of more payments and a cheaper overall ticket.
Yes, EDC charges $20 to use the layaway plan. It be nice if it was free, but this is actually pretty standard – most music festivals charge to use the layaway plan.
Negative. When you purchase your EDC pass you supply a credit card, and that card will be charged every month. You do not need to go manually make your payment every month, everything should happen automatically.
This is important: if your payment method you used for your original purchase is no longer valid you need to update your payment method with FrontGate tickets. EDC does not handle their tickets, you need to go through FrontGate. You can either call FrontGate at 888.512.SHOW (7469) or visit their support webpage.
Generally FrontGate tickets will give you 10 days to make your payment. So if payment information changes and you miss a payment you will be OK as long as you make your payment within 10 days of your scheduled payment. If you don’t make the payment they will likely rescind your EDC pass. You will be issued a refund minus a $40 late/restocking fee. So unless you want to lose your EDC pass be sure to keep your payment information updated!
Again, you need to go through your order with FrontGate tickets. Generally EDC passes (and really all music festival passes) begin shipping 2-4 weeks before the festival. Given EDC’s new dates in mid-May this means passes will begin shipping in the middle of April. Make sure your shipping information is correct by then!
The EDC payment / layaway plan is a great option for getting you under the Electric Sky without breaking the bank. It’s pretty simple – you can use it for any type of pass, and the earlier you purchase the easier the payments will be. Just be sure to keep your payment method up to date and it should be smooth sailing.
