A. Yes. Patrons will be allowed to exit the site – and upon return will be subject to normal security check and gate procedures similar to when you first enter.

Q. Can I bring lawn chairs?

A. Self-folding chairs no longer allowed on-site. We are switching from allowing self-folding chairs to providing seating for our guests.This allows us better control and maintenance of the space that is available for seating over the course of the evening.Self-folding chairs have never been a problem when attendance at the site is below capacity; however, as the festival grows, and with the recent experience of a sell out show, we recognized that we needed a better solution. Bleacher seating will be available throughout the site – including in the unlicensed section for the first time this year, and additional seating will be added in the licensed section as well.

Q. Can I bring umbrellas?

A. No, umbrellas are not permitted. Umbrellas obstruct the view of other patrons. This is a bummer. The good news is that ponchos are welcome!
