One event on September 16, 2018 at 11:00am
You’re not going to want to miss this epic country music concert experience on the lake. A floating stage will rest on the shoreline of The Beach Shack Rentals Beach (next to the London Bridge Beach) and facing Thompson Bay. This unique concert on the lake is designed to allow spectators to view from the comfort of their boat or in a designated float area rather than from land. The lineup includes Brad Johnson & Killin’ Time Band, Redneck Rodeo, and Chris Lozano & the Dixie Playboys. More to be announced, please check the event website.
Certified EMT divers, safety patrol boats, and lifeguards will ensure the safety of all attending the event, and a safety lane will work as a buffer between the float area and each of the mooring rows for boats, which will act similarly to concert seating. Personal watercrafts will roam the mooring rows and assist in safely securing boats to the mooring line. Bands are scheduled to begin playing at 11am and up to 4 bands may perform until 5:30pm, at which time the patrol boats and personal watercrafts will assist boaters in exiting the area. Please arrive early to allow ample time for mooring up.
There will be bevarage, food and boat vendors set up along the shoreline. Please bring cash, as there will not be an ATM on site and some vendors might not accept a card. There will be beer available for sale. Please don’t forget to bring water, sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, etc. Lily pads will be supplied in front of the stage in the floating area. Please check the FAQ page of the event website for more tips.
A shuttle boat will patrol to provide mooring occupants rides to the shore to utilize restrooms or to enjoy the floating area.
Floatation devices are required if you are in the water.
Tickets are $20 each for land or water admission. “VIP Preferred Front Pit Boat Parking” is optional for $150, does not include per person admission, and is “Limited Availability”. VIP beached cabana boats are $500, do not include per person admission, and are also limited in availability. Refunds are available up to 7 days before the event.
