The 2019 Festival Mobile App is now available for download on Android and iPhones.

Officials say the FIL Mobile App is the official electronic guide and one-stop shop for all things Festival. The app, according to Festival International,  features the full Music and Special Events schedule, RFID wristband account, site maps, after-hours events, food and art vendors, weather updates, and more.

“The mobile app is a great way for Festival International to keep our patrons updated and fully informed so they can enjoy their experience with ease. You can plan out your schedule show by show and manage your spending funds in one application,” said Marketing Coordinator, Carly Viator.

Officials released a few highlights users can expect from the mobile app.
