Okay so 21 bands. Music will start at 12:30. We’re gonna get wild with purple body paint and we’re going to deck out the Amp.
Outdoor shows usually allow for increased vending so there will be more food choices available.
Beer, wine and mixed drinks will be sold
No outside food or beverages are allowed
You cannot leave and come back.
Guns, knives, chains and weapons of any kind are not allowed.
Professional cameras (telephoto lens type) are not allowed. There is rarely an objection to phones or smaller cameras.
Kids are allowed, but they require a ticket. The thought is, if they’re old enough to be at a show, then they’re old enough to need a ticket.
There is no reserved seating, the entire venue for this show is general admission.
Blankets are allowed, but are subject to search
No Chairs are allowed
There is no “minor fee”
If you want to park close, it’s $5. But there is a TON of free parking if you’re willing to walk a bit.
Tickets can be purchased at the FMX Studios (cash only), at Ralph’s or online here. Tix are $45.00
Any type of VIP, meet the band, or fan club gathering is taken care of through the band(s) and it’s management. All details for those things should have been given to you when you purchased the upgrade. We have NOTHING to do with managing or making those things happen.
Now, a little disclaimer. Every time we have a HUGE show, we have a few problems with the lineup. If there’s only one band that you like on this lineup, then DON’T buy a presale ticket. 21 bands means there’s a couple hundred people that could have a problem, a death in the family, or some other type of dysfunction. It’s just the law of averages that there might be a problem with one or more of the bands. With that said, we think this represents an absolutely EPIC moment in Lubbock rock history. I hope everyone is cool enough to respect and check out each others music. Even if you don’t, I look at it this way, if you like 90’s rock, Bush and Candlebox make it worth your bucks. If you like stuff from now, Hollywood Undead and Theory of a Deadman make it worth your bucks. If you like more classic stuff, how about Tesla? I also know kids that would pay the money just for Falling in Reverse.
