Everything You Need To Know About Festival Supreme but were afraid to ask
Do I need a ticket? And what is the cost?
This ain’t no free show, buster. Festival Supreme is a ticketed event. tickets start at $99 (plus applicable fees). There will be a limited number of VIP tickets available at $250.
What are applicable fees?
In addition to the base price, each ticket will have a Ticketmaster service charge.
OK, so what is included in a G.A. ticket?
Seven hours, more or less, of the finest comedy acts on planet Earth (really, the best in the whole damn world) on three different stages. Oh and music, there’ll be music everywhere mixed in with the comedy. Plus, arcade games all included in the price of your ticket. Is that enough bang for your buck or what?
Nah, I’m looking for some excitement. Like a roller coaster ride, or even a few minutes on a Ferris wheel.
Simmer down, dude. You can do that, but you’re going to have to do that next door to the Festival on your own dime. Satisfied?
Um, no. I’m looking for a more supreme experience.
Ok pal, just for you my friend, we’re gonna sell you VIP tickets!
VIP tickets, huh? What does that get me?
VIP tickets allow access to elevated viewing areas from which to see the show, as well as access to the exclusive VIP inner sanctum bar and a VIP-pee in which you can relieve your VIP self. Feeling important yet? VIP tickets are now sold out.
What time does the show start?
Downbeat (that’s super-insidery concert style lingo for show time) is 3pm. Doors will open at 2pm.
How do I get there?
Where can I park? What if I ride my bike? Can I take the bus?
There is a FREE bike valet located next to the beach bike path just south of the Pier.
Parking for autos is available just south of the Pier off of Pacific Coast Highway (1550 PCH Lot), on a first come, first served basis. There is plenty of parking as close as two blocks away from the Pier in Santa Monica city parking lots on Colorado Ave., 2nd St. and 4th St. And Santa Monica Big Blue Bus lines 1, 7 and 10 all stop right at the Pier. There is no parking permitted on the Pier Parking Deck.

Is there seating available?
G.A. tickets for this event do not include a seat. This event is standing only. NO chairs are permitted in the venue.
Can I go in and out of the venue?
Yes you can. There are great restaurants and attractions elsewhere on the Pier and there is shopping, dining and movies within blocks of the Pier but we hope you will stay on the Pier to enjoy the Festival.
Can I bring my 12-year old kid brother (who just hit puberty) to see the show?
Sorry, this event is strictly 21 and over, but you are more than free to accompany him to his bar mitzvah classes.
Are pets allowed?
Pets are NOT allowed in the venue for this event. Dogs must be on a leash anywhere else on the Pier. Dogs are not allowed on the beach.
Is smoking permitted?
What were you thinking? Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the Santa Monica Pier, which is made of wood by the way.
What else can I NOT bring inside the venue?
- Glass bottles
- Liquids in glass or plastic (other than up to 1 litre of unopened water)
- Blankets and sheets
- Marking pens
- Video/audio recording equipment, and professional photography gear
are all prohibited inside the venue.
What happens if my favorite comedian drops off the show?
This is a festival with many artists performing so we still think you will have a blast. The line-up is subject to change and refunds will not be given.
Where can I eat?
There will be food available for sale at the show with a range of dining choices, so bring some cash (we will have ATMs available if you need more). You may bring your own food into the venue, although coolers are not allowed and security will search your bag upon entry.
Is alcohol permitted?
There will be several full service bars within the venue. You may not bring alcohol into the venue and consumption of alcohol is not permitted in public spaces on the Pier with the exception of licensed establishments.
How cold does it get?
After the sun goes down it can sometimes get a bit chilly on the Pier, requiring a sweater or jacket. It’s always a good idea to have something to throw on just in case and you’ll look very pretty or handsome.
What happens if it rains?
We checked the Farmer’s Almanac and that is highly unlikely, but in the unlikely event that there is precipitation we suggest you bring a raincoat and a pair of galoshes because this gig goes on rain or shine, sonny boy.
Where is first aid located?
If you require first aid assistance, please visit the Medical Tent and we will contact the proper authority. If it is an emergency, please call 911.
Where is the lost and found?
