Please click the above link for a message from the producer.

  • Where is the Mustang Music Festival?
    • MMF takes place on the Outer Banks of North Carolina in the town of Corolla, which is a 5 hour or less drive from the following cities:  Wilmington, NC (5 hrs), Raleigh/Durham, NC (4hrs), Greensboro, NC (5hrs), Charlottesville, VA (4.5hrs), Richmond, VA (3hrs), Fredericksburg, VA (3.5hrs), Northern VA/DC (4.5hrs), Baltimore, MD (5hrs)
  • What are the hours of the festival?
    • Friday, October 7, 2016
      • Gates 3p; Festival 4p-10p
    • Saturday, October 8, 2016
      • Gates 12p; Festival 12:30p-10p
  • Are kids allowed at the festival?
    • Sure are! MMF is a mega family-friendly event and we offer boatloads of fun activities for kiddos young and old!
  • Can I bring my dog, cat, parrot or ferret?
    • We dig our pets…but not everyone does. Therefore, for the safety, security, and comfort of our patrons, we do not allow pets on the property during festival hours.
  • What can I bring? What should I leave at home?
    • We will be providing you a full list here as the event nears. But prior to purchasing your tickets, the biggies you need to be aware of that will not be permitted on the grounds are: no weapons, no fireworks, no pop-up tents/canopies and, as we previously mentioned, no pets.
  • Is there camping? Where do I stay?
    • While camping is available, it is a pretty big hike and festival-provided transportation is not offered. There are three partner hotels within 16 miles that will be serviced by a 55-passenger coach bus, one of which, the Inn at Corolla Light, is walking distance.  If you have a larger group, there are hundreds of beach houses offering off season rates that are very reasonable when split amongst a group of friends.  Many are walking or biking distance from the venue and all Corolla neighborhoods will be shuttle serviced by 15-passenger vans.  Visit our Accommodations page for further details.
  • What is the weather like in Corolla this time of year?
    • Average daily high temps are in the low 70’s and nighttime lows are around 60.  Ocean temps stay warm into the fall, averaging about 68-72 degrees MMF weekend.
  • What is there to do during the daytime before the festival begins or in the days leading up to or after the festival?
    • Great question! The answer is TONS! OBX beaches are some of the nicest in the world offering world-class surfing, golf and fishing, wild horse tours, as well as shopping and dining…and these are just a few of the amazing options!  More to come on this as we get closer to the event.


  • I purchased my ticket online and I can’t find my confirmation anywhere. What do I do now?
    • No sweat! Just email with the full name and email address used when purchasing the tickets. If further info is needed, we’ll reach out to you directly.
  • Do I have to print my ticket, or can you scan my phone?
    • We can scan your phone. We definitely suggest choosing the Print at Home option to ease wait times at the gate.
  • Are kids free?
    • Yep! Children 12 and under are free with a paying adult!


  • How do I get there?
    • It is an easy, beautiful drive from anywhere in the mid-atlantic region.  If you choose to fly, Norfolk, VA (ORF) is an nice 2 hour drive, Newport News Williamsburg (PHF) is about 2.5 hours and Raleigh/Durham (RDU) is about 3.75 hours away.
  • How do I get a shuttle pass?
    • Just hit the Ticketing page and it’ll be listed as an option there. Passes are just $20 for the weekend.
  • Can I buy a shuttle pass on the shuttle or do I have to buy it in advance?
    • All shuttle passes must be purchased in advance. Those without a pass will not be able to board the shuttle.
  • Do my kids need a shuttle pass?
    • Children 12 and under are free to ride the shuttle with a paid adult.
  • When will you be posting the Shuttle Schedule?
    • As we near the event, the full shuttle schedule will be released. Each of our lodging partners will be shuttle-serviced. Please seeAccommodations page for details.
