We work to keep the ticket prices as affordable as possible. Ticket proceeds cover the expenses of putting on GGBY and any excess funds go back into the gathering,  support Slackline U.S., a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and grow programs such at the Toilet at the Fruit Bowl Fund. All organizers and coordinators of the event are unpaid, volunteers who put hundreds of hours into planning this event. Your ticket supports advancing the mission and work of Slackline U.S. and GGBY Highline Gathering. Once purchased, tickets are not refundable. All sales of GGBY Highline Gathering tickets and vehicle passes are final and no refunds will be issued for any reason. Most ticket types are fully transferable however, and may be resold for their face value, plus any taxes and fees paid. Individuals selling to other individuals should contact the ticket master to change the name on the ticket. Details are located at the GGBY Highline Gathering page.

The 2019 event will be held from November 24th through the 28th (Sunday through Thursday) with check-in opening at 8am on the 24th. Tickets include camping from Sunday night (11/24) through Friday morning (11/29). Highlines and spacenets will be available from the 24th through the 28th. Early arrival is available BY REQUEST ONLY with the expectation of helping with setup and hauling. If you arrive early without prior approval or without helping with setup you will be asked to leave and come back on the 24th. Early arrival requests can be sent to All ticket sales are final and non-refundable although you may transfer your ticket to someone else. Email the ticketmaster through Ticket Tailor should you wish to transfer your ticket to someone else.

DOG ATTENDEE UPDATE: ALL DOGS WILL BE REQUIRED TO BE REGISTERED, LEASHED, AND SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES THROUGHOUT THE WEEK. IF THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO PLAN AHEAD AND LEAVE YOUR DOG AT HOME OR KENNEL. DOG PASSES ARE LIMITED AND CAN BE PURCHASED HERE. Since we are striving to create and build back the land that we’ve impacted, the dog regulations will be more enforced this year. IF YOUR DOG IS FOUND ROAMING, THERE CAN AND WILL BE THE UNFORTUNATE OUTCOME OF ASKING YOU TO LEAVE THE FESTIVAL. We highly value the overall enjoyment and safety of attendees and treasure the land and spaces we have at the Fruit Bowl. Dogs impact this space when free-roaming and they are NOT our priority. We absolutely love our slack community fur babies and really hope this year will be a better balance for everyone. Check the webpage for local dog kennel information. They book quickly so if you need a kennel, reserve a spot now.

Instruct a Workshop

If you have something you are passionate about, consider teaching a workshop! We are looking to have a variety of workshops at this year’s GGBY, be it rigging, yoga, or sustainability talks. Workshop teachers will get a $50 discount on any ticket type (except dog tickets).

Our goal is to have diversity in teachers and workshop topics, so at this time we will not be scheduling more than one workshop per teacher, but you are more than welcome to complete multiple applications for separate workshops. Note: Workshop teachers are responsible for all supplies needed. Applications are due October 1st.

GGBY Experiences

More than a highline gathering, GGBY is an experience; an experience that YOU create as a participant. We value the endless talent coming out of this community and want to see it become part of the overall experience of GGBY! Whether you want to create art, build an interactive display or theme space, provide music or perform, we want to know what your vision is so we can strategically and creatively incorporate it into this year’s gathering.

GGBY Experiences are a gift and contribution to the GGBY community. All participants are welcome to create an experience at GGBY! This section will tell you everything you need to know to create an experience, register it with us, place it in the desert, and remove it at the end of the event – all without leaving a trace. You MUST register your experience if you would like to be placed in the immediate Fruit Bowl area called the “Experiential Zone” or have it added to the schedule.  Please read through the following guidelines before registering your experience.

GGBY Experiences will be placed in one of the following two categories. Please read the guidelines and fill out the registration form for each respective category you wish to participate in.
