Frequently Asked Questions:

When is Ichthus Festival: The Re-Launch Event?


Ichthus Festival: The Re-Launch Event will take place on Saturday, September 18, 2021. The exact schedule is still being finalized, but we're planning to open the gates at 12:00 noon and the last concert of the day to end around 9:45PM.




Is this the same Ichthus Festival?


If you've attended Ichthus in the past you will see some changes. First, the event in 2021 is a special re-launch event, not the full Ichthus Festival experience you're used to. It's a one day event designed to spread the word that Ichthus is back and get people excited for its return. Attending and supporting this one day event will help grow Ichthus for 2022 and beyond. In 2013, Joe and Cheryl Lycan bought the 100+ acre farm in Wilmore, KY where Ichthus was held from 1999-2012 to preserve it for ministry purposes. The Lycans also acquired the Ichthus name and through mutual friends, were connected with Fuse Ministries to produce the new Ichthus. Fuse is a 501c3 non-profit, volunteer-run, Christ-centered ministry that uses music to share the love and hope of Jesus. Fuse is not affiliated with any previous Ichthus events or any other events previously held at the farm. While we understand there are a lot of memories and nostalgia attached to Ichthus, our goal is to build Ichthus into a sustainable ministry that reaches people for many years. So instead of jumping into a multi-day event, the decision was made to make this year's event a single day, not take on massive amounts of debt, be good stewards with the resources we have, and seek God's will for the festival going forward.

No. Unfortunately, there will not be any onsite camping or lodging options. We recommend visiting the Jessamine Chamber of Commerce's member directory to view lodging options.




Do I have to bring my printed ticket to Ichthus?


Yes. You'll need to present your ticket(s) at the gate for scanning either printed on paper or shown on the screen of a smart phone. However, we recommend printing in advance as unreliable cell service could make it difficult to display your ticket on your phone and could slow down lines. If you do not have your printed ticket and/or you are unable to display your ticket you will not be able to enter the festival without purchasing a new ticket. Our ticketing partner is iTickets. If you have any trouble with your ticket please contact iTickets at (800) 965-9324.




I can't find the email with my ticket(s).


Once you order your ticket(s), you will receive an order confirmation email from iTickets on behalf of Ichthus. Your ticket(s) will be sent in that confirmation email to the address you used at checkout (attached as a PDF). If you do not see your order confirmation in your inbox, check your junk/spam folder. If you still do not see your order confirmation email info@fuseconcerts.org and we'll be happy to help you out.




Is there a fee for parking?


No. Parking in the main lot at Ichthus is free. However, we do have a "Premium Parking Pass" that you may purchase when ordering your tickets that allows you to park in a special lot with easy in/out access. If you have a handicap tag please notify a parking volunteer when you arrive to be shown the closest available handicap space.

Can I bring a lawn/camp chair or blanket to sit on?


Yes! You are more than welcome to bring a chair or blanket to sit on. However, they can only be set up in the designated area. No chairs or blankets can be setup in the immediate area closest to the Main Stage (this area will be standing room only). Please keep an eye out for signs or ask a volunteer where you may set up your chair or blanket.




Is there seating available at the festival?

Please note that pop up tents and shade canopies will only be allowed at the very back of the main stage field and you may be asked to move your tent or canopy to accomodate other guests.




What can/can't I bring with me?

You may bring camp/beach chairs, blankets, strollers, or wagons. If you bring a pop up tent, canopy, or any other item for shade it can only be set up in the designated area at the very back of the field to not obstruct the view of others.
