One core tenet of IdeaFestival programming is to remain accessible ( open-source) in terms of pricing, especially when compared with other world-class national and global thought-leader events. We believe that it is our responsibility to share these innovators, leading thinkers and influencers with as wide of an audience as possible. We hear consistently from our speakers that we have one of the most diverse and unique audiences of any event of our type with participation from all ages, all walks of life, from Louisville and far beyond.

Each year, the number of requests for free or subsidized student and community tickets continues to rise. As a result, we are launching a scholarship program for IdeaFestival 2012 to help ensure that participation remains affordable for all. Student all-access passes cost $199 per student to attend all four days of the Festival.
