Need to Know Before You Go:

  • THE QR CODE IS YOUR TICKET!! You received an email with a scan-able QR code when you purchased tickets.  Print it out or just bring your device.  It will be scanned by gate attendants either at the parking area or at the Old Saloon.  You can also bring your ID and we can look your ticket up but it takes way longer and slows up the line!
  • GATES OPEN AT 5:30…MUSIC STARTS AT 7.
  • WRISTBANDS: You will be wrist-banded at the gate. Leave it on! You will get a second wristband to be able to consume alcohol. No wristband – no booze. Only one drink per hand will be sold at a time.
  • Kids are allowed and those under 10 are free. 10 and over NEED A TICKET. Bring them snacks and sunscreen.

PARKING:

  • BRING CASH!!
  • ALL PARKING FOR THE SHOW IS AT 1180 East River Road. 1.6 miles east of the Old Saloon.  Turn east off HWY 89 at the Old Saloon and follow the signs.  See map here.
    • The parking is $10 per car and includes shuttle rides for all occupants so CARPOOL!!!
    • Please bring CASH for this service as it is being accommodated by an outside party
    • The parking shuttle will also stop at Chico Hot Springs for those who are staying there. They run continuously and pick up at the Chico Saloon so keep an eye out for the white bus.
    • Parking shuttles will run continuously from 6 pm until 12 am.
  • There will be NO PARKING available at the event site or in Emigrant!!!! Please park at the parking lot and ride the shuttle.
    • Cars parked in unauthorized areas WILL BE TOWED.  Cars parked along HWY 89 WILL BE TOWED.  Cars parked along Murphy Lane WILL BE TOWED.  Cars parked in Emigrant WILL BE TOWED.  Cars parked at the Emigrant General Store WILL BE TOWED. See the trend here?  This isn’t to be assholes, this is to keep everyone safe.  Park County Sheriffs make the rules not us and if you want us to keep bringing great music to Paradise Valley you will follow the rules and ride the shuttle. The Sheriffs really don’t want pedestrians crossing HWY 89 so don’t do it.

SHUTTLE:

  • SHUTTLE:  There is a Party Bus shuttle offered from Livingston ($18) and Bozeman ($25). It is roundtrip and leaves from the Montana Ale Works 611 E Main St Bozeman at 5:30 SHARP! Please be there by 5:15 to load!  And the Ace Hardware/Kenyon Noble parking lot: 1106 W Park St Livingston at 6:15 SHARP! It will return from the show at 11:45 SHARP! Don’t MISS THE BUS!!
    • To reserve your spot or for more details please follow this link.
    • These busses only run once so make sure you are on them when they go back to town.

CAMP:

  • 1 — This is one of many amazing large shows at the Old Saloon!!! For this to continue we have to behave ourselves and treat our neighbors with respect. We love the people in our little town and we don’t want them to hate us.  That includes following the parking rules.
  • 2 — NO RE-ENTRY. Once you are in you are in so don’t forget anything in your car.
  • 3 — No lawn chairs please. Because of the venue size constraints please leave your lawn chairs at home. Bleachers and picnic tables will be available for those that prefer to sit and watch.
  • 4 — NO DOGS…we love them but not for shows.
  • 5 — No outside food or drink. We have you covered for both and you will be booted if you try to sneak in that flask of Fireball. We have a few food options but less than years past so expect lines.  BRING CASH!!  ATM’S ARE ON SITE BUT DON’T ALWAYS WORK.
  • 6 — NO GUNS….I know we are in the Wild West but we don’t need any drunken shoot outs to prove it.
  • 7 — No one allowed behind the stage or on Counts Lane. Respect the band so they tell their friends how cool we are and we get more great shows.
  • 8 — No drinking and driving!! Ride the shuttle and camp. It is a hell of a lot cheaper than a DUI. We have also notified the local UBER drivers so they may be around. We know for a fact that the Sheriff’s Deputies will be around but you don’t want that type of shuttle.
  • 9 — Treat our staff and security with respect. They are good people and working their asses off to make sure you have fun. There will be zero tolerance for horseplay. Park County Sheriff’s Department will be in the area to assist with any issues.
  • 10 — HAVE FUN!!!
