What is priority seating and how do I get it?
Priority seating is the seating closest to the stage. The first 3,500 students to take a shuttle bus to the grounds will receive a wristband that will give them access to a priority seating area. The first shuttle leaves at 5:30 p.m. Seats are not assigned or reserved, your wristband will only give you access to a general area.
How do I get down to the Summerfest grounds?
You can take a free shuttle bus from UWM. Shuttle buses will pick up from the Chapman/Enderis Hall parking lot beginning at 5:30 p.m. The last bus down to the grounds leaves at 9 p.m.
Or use your UPass and take the 10, 30, or GRE to the Summerfest grounds.
What time should I leave?
If you are taking a UWM sponsored shuttle and want to avoid a long wait you should be in line at 6:30 p.m. If you wait until 7 p.m. to get in line you will miss the first act. If you wait until 8:30 p.m. you will miss the first act and part of the 2nd. If you wait until 9 p.m. you will miss the entire event, shuttle buses quit running down to the grounds at 9 p.m. If you leave at a peak time expect a wait of up to two hours for a shuttle bus.
If you aren’t taking a shuttle, the show starts at 8 p.m. Plan to arrive before 7:45 p.m. to have time to make it through security and find a seat.
Is the food free at the preshow?
Yes, food is free. There will be a variety of different options. Pick up your food ticket with your Pantherfest ticket.
If I don’t want to go to Pantherfest can I still go to the Pantherfest Preshow and get food?
Yes! You can pick up a food ticket at the preshow event.
How can I get the best seats?
Show up early for a shuttle bus down to Pantherfest. The first 3,500 students to get on the shuttle buses will receive a wristband for priority seating.
What if I want to leave Pantherfest and come back later?
Sorry, there is no reentry into the Summerfest grounds. Once you leave your time at Pantherfest is over.
Does my ticket for Pantherfest get me into Indian Summer?
Yes! On Friday you can get into Indian Summer with your ticket.
