Here are some details to note if you’re attending:
The festival recommends fans activate their wristbands before they get to the main gate to ensure a quick and seamless check-in process. Fans can do so on the Country Fest 2022 mobile app that is available in the App Store or Google Play Store.
The Country Fest 2022 mobile app has a new Food Finder to assist fans who have food allergies, dietary restriction or simply a craving.
Also new to the app, fans can preview festival merchandise prior to getting on-site so they can spend more time watching the artists they love.
VIP ticket holders will enjoy a brand new VIP Kitchen and stage. The new space doubles the serving capacity, serving speed and dramatically increases cooking efficiency for caterers, promising increased meal quality for fans.
Like a rideshare at bar close, the wait for a Campground Taxi can be a bit long at peak times. New to Country Fest 2022 is the Campground Shuttle, stopping at multiple drop-off/pick-up points around the campgrounds and bringing fans to the gate of the concert grounds.
Wristbands are available online or at the main gate.
The This Bud’s for You Stage doubled in size this year — raising its roof, creating better traffic flow, easier access to drinks, and a better show experience.
3-Day General Admission tickets, 1-Day General Admission tickets, parking, select camping and select artist Pit Passes remain.
Note that VIP, Reserved Lawn and Lure Lock Top Tier Lounge tickets are sold out as is the VIP Camping and South Campground campsites.
Festival staff and planners promise numerous surprises for attendees, especially during Friday’s shows.
