Tesla Giga Fest at Giga Texas: Attendance Figures, Time, Other Details Revealed

Tesla Giga Fest Texas

Tesla’s Giga Fest at Gigafactory Texas is officially set for April 7, and new documents released March 8 reveal the plans for the event, including attendance figures, time and other details.

The event will start at 4 p.m. and end at midnight, according to new documents from Travis County Commissioner’s Court. The event will celebrate the opening of Tesla Gigafactory Texas, the automaker’s second U.S.-based production facility.

Tesla plans to allow up to 15,000 people at the Giga Fest at Gigafactory Texas, the documents revealed. Admittance will only be allowed for patrons with a ticket and invitation, according to Tesla’s mass gathering permit application, received by the Travis County Fire Marshal’s Office on Feb. 18.

This is considerably large, and CEO Elon Musk has said priority will go to residents in the Greater Austin area before more attendees are sent invitations.

Tesla said it will require ID at entry and wristbands will be worn by those 21 years of age and older who can legally drink the alcohol available.

Tesla will also hold tours of the Gigafactory Texas facility, just like it did at the Giga Fest the automaker held in Germany to commemorate the near-completion of Gigafactory Berlin.

Tesla is waiting for EPA certification of the “Austin-made” Model Y before it can begin initial deliveries. The Travis County Commissioner’s Court will also have a public hearing on March 22 to receive comments regarding the issuance of the mass gathering permit for the Giga Texas event.
