How To Beat The Heat
There will be hydration stations for guests to refill water bottles, as well as misters for guests to cool off. You can bring one 20oz factory sealed water bottle per person into the venue. Please drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated. We also recommend bringing sunblock and a hat (or red bandana!) to protect yourself from the Texas sun.
Enjoy More Than Music
Be sure to check out our Vendor Village. Don’t miss Me & Paul, a 1983 E bus that toured with Willie Nelson & the Family Band, on display in the Grand Plaza. Donations for tours will go to support Farm Aid. Peruse art on display by Philarthropy, where all proceeds from art purchases will go to Farm Aid.
Please remember that no chairs are allowed inside the gates, but stadium cushions and blankets will be permitted.
