If you’re purchasing tickets, on the same page you enter in your payment information, you’ll see a line that says “+ Click here for student and other discounts.” Click that and enter DNous20 for a 20% discount. (I’m not sure if the discount applies to the festival’s “boutique yurt” rentals.)

Thanks to David Maclean at IAI for arranging for this discount.
