One event on September 16, 2018 at 11:00am
Less than 24 hours before Havasu Palooza kicks off its epic country summer lake concert! Boaters will be allowed into the event area to moor starting at 8 a.m. with the assistance of “Anchor Management.” There will be two pontoons at the event entrance on the lake to check tickets and to assist boaters to their mooring lines. Please have printed or mobile tickets ready to show. The VIP lines are sold out. Three general admission mooring lines are available; tickets are $20 per person on the boat (children who are 14 years old or younger are free with at least one paid adult.) Cash only. If you have questions, call or text Jackie at 928-486-2665.
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.
