BIG EARS

BIG EARS OPENS TOMORROW!

One more day and Big Ears 2022 will officially arrive. We’re beyond excited to welcome everyone back with a new Big Ears Experience. We want to offer these important, useful hints as you plan your weekend:

YOU MUST CHECK IN & PICK UP YOUR WRISTBANDS FIRST!
All patrons will be required to check in at Big Ears Festival Headquarters in Jackson Terminal (213 W. Jackson Ave.) before you can attend any of the festival’s ticketed events. You will not be admitted to any venue without your festival wristband. To obtain your wristband, you must show:
• A receipt / proof of purchase from Front Gate or LYTE;
•  Proof of vaccination (photo of your vaccine card is acceptable) OR a negative PCR test administered within 48 hours of entry;
•  A photo ID matching both.
If you purchased multiple tickets, each member of your party must present a photo ID and matching proof of vaccination or negative PCR test.

BACKPACKS, BAGS & LINES AT VENUES
While we understand that Big Ears can be a long day, we urge you to pack as lightly as possible while at the festival. If you can manage without a backpack or handbag, it will help to speed entry into venues by reducing mandatory bag checks.
