Tickets are $9 general admission; $7 alumni and senior citizens; free for Coastal Carolina University and Horry-Georgetown Technical College faculty, staff and students (two per valid ID), and for teens and children when accompanied by an adult.

Guests are invited to dress in 1960s-inspired clothing to aid in the re-creation of the legendary concert.
