Festival Pass

We have an amazing collection of people coming to be a part of Eyeo, and we want our attendees and guests to get as much out of it as possible. Inspiration, collaboration, access and fun. We limit the scale in order to maintain the kind of atmosphere we know works best. Bigger is not better. Eyeo is special. We want you in the mix. This includes access to all talks + evening events.


Pre-Conference All-Day Workshop(s)

You wanna take them all, but you can only take one. Workshops take place at the Walker Art Center on Monday, June 4th, 2018. Arrive at 9am to the Bazinet Lobby to check in and we’ll help you get to the right place.


Code+Climate Summit

Code+Climate will be held Monday, June 4th at the Walker Art Center. In this one-day summit, we’ll try to draw a path forward for effective, inclusive resistance. Structured as an ‘un-conference’, code+resistance provides a forum for every attendee to lead discussions, present work, teach workshops and devise new models for collaboration. The summit is open to anyone. Attendance is limited to 100 participants. This is a “pay what you can” event. Minimum is $10 with a suggested payment of $40.

$10.00 – $40.00

Donate for Diversity

Share the love, share the access. When you buy tickets this year you’ll see an option to ‘Donate for Diversity’. If you value a diverse audience at Eyeo as we do, this is an opportunity to kick in some funds (any amount) to support that. Your donation will be used to bring more diversity to Eyeo via fellowships and discounts. It’s better with everyone.


refunds & transfers

Tickets are non-refundable, but they are transferable. Transfers must be submitted to us via email by May 6th, 2018. Email us for details.


We only accept payments online via credit cards or paypal accounts. We use Eventbrite for registration and Paypal to process the transactions. NOTE!.. Using corporate cards with paypal can be an issue. American Express corporate cards in particular. Mismatched billing addresses/zip codes with business/corporate cards is a common trip up as well. Have an alternative card ready, or load up a paypal account in advance.


Eventbrite prefers up to date browsers. So use one to register. If you run into issues where buttons or items appear to be missing, try another browser. (We ran into issues with Safari 8.0 (hey don’t judge!), but 9.1 worked fine. Chrome V56. worked fine.) Point is you don’t want to be updating your browser at go time.


If you see “PENDING” for a ticket type it doesn’t mean that it’s sold out. The system shows PENDING to ensure that tickets aren’t oversold due to the multiple concurrent transactions in progress. Keep refreshing the page. The transaction time limit is 18 minutes. We know it can be frustrating, and we wish we had a magic bullet for addressing the supply & demand imbalance that makes the process a bit harrowing, but we don’t. Keep the faith and hopefully we’ll see you in June.


A festival pass will get you into everything [except] the Pre-Festival Workshops and Summit on June 4th. The festival starts with keynotes the evening of June 4th.


On Monday, June 4th we’ll be hosting several Pre-Festival Workshops. They require a separate, specific registration.


On Monday, June 4th we’ll host the 6th event in our series of Eyeo Summits. The theme for 2018 is Code+Climate. This mini-conference will follow a ‘wiki’ format in which participants will determine the topics and structure of the day. All attendees are welcome and encouraged to propose and lead sessions. This is a separate, ticketed event, open to anyone interested in the creative coding community. It takes place on June 4th from 9am-5pm, preceding the festival’s opening keynotes that evening. More info is available at the Code Summit page.


The Eyeo Festival is dedicated to an inclusive, harassment-free experience for everyone regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, accessibility needs, appearance, or religion. Our complete policy can be found here. We take this very seriously.


When you buy your tickets we’ll ask for some info. We use this to plan the event and make sure we have the right things lined up in the right quantities. We’ll include your name, organization name, twitter handle and city on your eyeo badge as you list it when you register. We won’t sell your demographic data to anybody. That seems dirty. You’re our beloved guests. (Who would do that?)

Student Volunteers

There are no student rate tickets. It’s not because we don’t like students – we do. In exchange for volunteering during Eyeo you can attend the festival for free. The application period closes at Midnight Monday, January 22nd. We’ll notify those who are selected before tickets go on sale. Peachy. *Travel and accommodations are not included or provided by Eyeo.


Non-Profit Fellowships

If you run or work for a non-profit we encourage you to apply for an Eyeo 2018 non-profit fellowship. There’s a lot of good out there to be done and we salute you for fighting the good fight. Let us know what you’ll gain from attending Eyeo. We’ll award gratis festival tickets to individuals from different NPs. The application period closes at Midnight Friday, March 9th. *Travel and accommodations are not included or provided by Eyeo.


Artist Fellowships

If you’re a practicing artist we encourage you to apply for one of the Eyeo 2018 artist fellowships. Let us know how attending Eyeo will affect your art practice. If you’re selected, you get a complimentary pass to the festival. The application period closes at Midnight Friday, March 9th. *Travel and accommodations are not included or provided by Eyeo.
