For further questions, email jon@bellcountytourism..com. Event is rain or shine and will only be postponed/cancelled for sustained thunderstorms.

Tickets/entry info

Ticket Descriptions are below. For access, please bring either printed tickets OR mobile tickets will work as well. You will show your tickets at the entrance and receive wristbands upon entry. You must keep your wristband with you while in the venue! You are allowed reentry if you have your wristband. We will set a deadline for refunds once tickets go on sale. After that, you will need to visit and join the A*Mart Group on Facebook and sell them under the pinned LCMF ticket thread. 

GA Tickets

General Admission seats are the benches and/rocks that are located just behind the green seats up front. Seating is first come first serve.

Reserved Seats

Reserved seats are located in front of General Admission. Best seats are automatically selected. Seating assignments will be mailed to ticket holders the week prior to the email you used to purchase the tickets.

Premium Seats

Premium seating includes reserved seats in one of the front rows and access to a secluded hangout area near the stage.

​​​

Kids

The show is all ages, and while our festival is more adult oriented, if they can sit in your lap they will not need a ticket. Kids tickets for children 12 and under that require their own seat will be half price and on sale at the gate on the day of the show for bench seats only.

Cash

Most all vendors at the event will be cash only. We are hoping to have an ATM on location this year, but please make sure you have visited one beforehand just in case. 

Rain  

Weather can be unpredictable in June, so please watch the weather. Bring a rain jacket or poncho. In case of heavy, sustained rain only we will allow folks to set up pop up tents in a few places in the back of the venue, so feel free to bring one of those if you have bench seats only and if the weather is calling for prolonged rain. Event will only be cancelled for severe weather. No refunds due to weather can be issued

 

Camping

Pine Mountain State Resort Park is allowing camping this year! The large gravel parking area on the road above the venue will be available for camping, but you MUST CONTACT the state park and reserve a spot when they become available (stay tuned to our Facebook page for that info). We will have shuttles running from camping areas throughout weekend, and there are also hiking trails leading from both campsites down to the venue. There is also another spot the park has an additional 30 sites that is about a mile up the mountain (shuttles will be helping transport from that location as well). There will be community camp fires set up at both campsites, please refrain some making individual ones. Also please help keep the campgrounds clean and storing food in airtight containers. Remember, we do have bears here so keeping the smell of food away is pretty important!  

 

The Cumberland Gap National Historical Park is just 15 minutes from the Cove and has a ton of both primitive and electric sites. This is the closest RV site. (https://www.nps.gov/cuga/planyourvisit/camping.htm).

 

For folks who don't mind backcountry camping, there is also Kentucky Ridge State Forest just minutes away (http://www.stateparks.com/kentucky_ridge_state_forest_in_kentucky.html and https://fw.ky.gov/More/Documents/KentuckyRidgeStateForest_ALL.pdf). This area is just behind where the camping spots at Pine Mountain State Resort Park are and we will have a sign directing folks, also see the attached map.

 

We also have a landowner near the park with some primitive sites available, if you need his contact information please email laurelcovecamping@hotmail.com or text/call him at 606-246-1948

In addition to the rooms and cabins at Pine Mountain State Resort Park, we also have the Sleep Inn, Holiday Inn Express, and Econolodge all in Middlesboro just 10 minutes south. There are also several Air BNBs in the area including Pine Mountain Inn, Boone Trail Inn, Elk Creek Lodge, and more. You can visit www.bellcountytourism.com/lodging for more info.

Venue Rules and Regs

 

* You must check in at the main entrance and obtain your wristband for the weekend upon arrival. Once you have it you will be able to come and go as you please.

 

* Food No outside food or drink is allowed in the venue (minus one unopened water bottle). The staff at Pine Mountain State Resort Park will have food and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) for sale. There will also be several food vendors on site, and craft vendors too! 

 

* Pets Unfortunately we also will not be allowing pets this year. If you have a service animal, it is of course different. But due to the crowd size this year and the noise, we can’t have them at this show. 

* Campfires will be allowed only at designated places at both campgrounds. You may bring firewood to help contribute to them if you are able. 

* We pride ourselves on atmosphere. While we're not the fun police...we want to make sure everyone respects the artists, the state park, and their fellow concert goers. This means please don't be loud or disruptive during an artist set, especially at the Creekside stage. If someone asks you to please lower your voice, don't get angry, just oblidge them and move your conversation to a place where it's not disturbing folks. Please don't litter....we have a beautiful venue and we are a volunteer group, so picking up a ton of trash after we've worked hard all weekend isn't something we particularly look forward to.
