Please do not purchase secondhand tickets!

Every year, we turn away dozens of attendees who have purchased a fake or duplicate ticket to APN. Scammers often buy a single ticket and sell it to multiple people, or copy our branding and create QR codes to mimic real tickets.  There is no way for us to ensure the authenticity of your secondhand ticket before the fest, and those with fake/duplicate tickets will not be let into APN.

APN sells out every year; buying your ticket directly from us is the only way to guarantee an authentic ticket. If you must purchase a ticket on the secondary market, please make the transfer AT the event to ensure the authenticity of your ticket and the seller.

Live Music Schedule

We are excited to welcome back fan-favorite Viva Knievel to All Pints North! All live music will be performed on the Bayfront Festival Park stage on the waterfront and is free to all ticketholders as part of admission.

Viva Knievel

Viva Knievel band - eight men wearing sunglasses with a white burst coming from them and a magenta background.

A COVER BAND THAT DEFIES GRAVITY. WITH NO FEAR OF BROKEN BONES, WE TAKE THE STAGE AND ATTEMPT FEATS THAT SEEM IMPOSSIBLE.

Viva Knievel is an 8-to-100 piece fearless American wrecking ball. The band boasts chaotic stage shows, an unnecessary amount of sunglasses, face-melting guitar solos and earth-rumbling renditions of all your favorite songs that other bands are too afraid to play.

We like to take our audiences on a daredevil flight through the decades. We first concentrate on the songs that brought groove and swagger, Marshall’s and Vistalites, big hair and bigger songs to the masses. Then, we show you what we’re really made of.

Featuring a full horn-section, Viva Knievel gets down on it and delivers some of the best renditions of funk and soul your step-dad has ever heard. When you regain consciousness, we’ll launch into modern mode and deliver all of your favorite contemporary hits with such a fervor and perfection, you’ll swear you’re dreaming. Well, you’re not. You’re witnessing the spectacle that is: Viva Knievel. You’re welcome.

APN MARKETPLACE

The APN Marketplace opens at 2:30 p.m. (one hour before the fest opens). You can check in to the fest early to browse the Marketplace and purchase food and products from these local businesses, then be let into the fest right at 3:30 p.m.

Could the festival get canceled?
We do everything we can to provide a quality event for craft beer fans, and the health and safety our festival attendees, workers, and volunteers are of utmost importance. The event would be canceled if conditions that threaten the health and safety of people at our festival occur, including extreme weather, dangerous air quality, or other public health or safety emergencies. We make every effort to alert festgoers as early as possible if these conditions are likely, or if we have to cancel an event. Unfortunately, if a cancellation like this occurs, we are not able to issue refunds or reschedule the festival.

I can’t attend the fest. Can I cancel my ticket and get a refund?

You are welcome to sell or give your ticket to a friend or family member and we can update the name on the ticket for you.

Will there be tickets day-of?
Possibly, but it is unlikely; APN sells out every year, and once it sells out, we will not have any more tickets available.

Can you verify the authenticity of my ticket?
No. Buying your ticket directly from us is the only way to guarantee an authentic ticket.

Every year, we turn away dozens of attendees who have purchased a fake or duplicate ticket to APN. Scammers often buy a single ticket and sell it to multiple people, or copy our branding and create QR codes to mimic real tickets.  There is no way for us to ensure the authenticity of your secondhand ticket before the fest, and those with fake/duplicate tickets will not be let into APN. If you’d like to be notified when tickets go on sale for future events, please sign up for our email list.

I have another question.
