Wanee Music Festival Tickets
Wanee Music Festival tickets
The Wanee Music Festival is an American rock concert hosted at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. The family-friendly event spans three days officially, but there is an event that occurs to kick off the fun on the Wednesday before the festival starts.
Wanee Wednesday, which is also known as the Wanee Kickoff Party, gives lesser known artists a chance to take part in the festivities the night before the opening day. The festival takes part in the spring of each year and is a major event for people who enjoy Southern rock.
Over the course of the festival, attendees can choose from shows happening on four stages. Tickets are required for all adults attending the event. Children who are 6 and under don't need a ticket. Children who are 7 to 12 can get a half-price ticket at the gate. No children are permitted without a ticketed adult to supervise them.
Wanee Music Festival's history
The Wanee Festival began in 2005 with the Allman Brothers Band as the host. The band continued to host the event until 2014. In the inaugural year, the festival saw only 11 artists featured on two stages in two days. The event has since grown and now hosts up to 44 bands per year.
Many artists come back year after year. One frequent performer is the North Mississippi Allstars. Widespread Panic has also headlined the festival more than once. Each year brings an eclectic mix of performers that make the party rock on throughout the Wanee Music Festival schedule.
Wanee Music Festival's experience
The open-air festival features primitive campsites for festival goers to sleep at night. These spots are available as part of the Wanee Music Festival ticket package for VIPs or as an added cost for general admission tickets. The VIP passes also give holders catered lunches on Friday and Saturday, as well as other benefits, like special seating sections on two stages.
While children are welcome at the events, pets should be left at home. Backpacks aren't allowed within the festival venue. It is recommended that people who head out bring sleeping bags, a tent, bug repellent, sunscreen and trash bags. Walking is the preferred method of transportation around the venue, so motorized options are forbidden.
There is potable water, portable toilets, restrooms and showers on the grounds. Festival goers can enjoy campfires as long as an adult is present to tend the fire. A general store is available on the grounds from 9:00 a.m. through midnight daily during the event.
