FLORENCE — Two things are required for Shoals Fest on the banks of the Tennessee River: positivity and kindness. Those will make any gathering a good time.
The two-day music festival Oct. 1-2 at McFarland Park in Florence, features founder Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats, Drivin’ & Cryin’, and Amanda Shires. Nine other artists are also slated to perform.
And, yes, each will play a full set.
Gates open at 2 p.m. both days. Tickets are available for purchase here. Two-day general admission tickets are $99.50 and include access to the general festival grounds.
Want a more up-close view? Two-day VIP tickets are available for $499.50 and include access to the pit in addition to the general grounds. You will also have a dedicated VIP entrance, VIP concierge service, one autographed exclusive limited edition event poster, unlimited soft drinks and water, light snacks, a private cash bar, and private restrooms.
Single-day passes are also now on sale for $59.50.
Free parking will be available on-site on a first-come, first-served basis. Shuttles will run to McFarland Park from the downtown Florence parking deck and a couple of other downtown stops. Signs marking shuttle stops will be posted during the festival. Please see the Shoals Fest website for questions on what and what not to bring.
Stage times will be set closer to the event date.
