Event FAQ


Will The Avett Brothers be performing in-person?
Yes! Scott, Seth, Bob, and Joe will be performing live in-person at the Speedway. The show will also be broadcast on the Speedway's 16,000 square-foot television screen, one of the largest screens in the world.

How many tickets can I buy? How many people can I bring in my car?
There is a ticket purchase limit of 1 ticket per transaction. 1 ticket is required per car and permits entry for up to 6 total people per car. Please do not show up with more than 6 people in your car as you will not be allowed into the venue.

How much are tickets? What sort of view will I have?
There will be 5 Lots total. Lot 1 is the only one with Reserved parking. All other Lots (2-5) are General Admission, which means that cars will be parked on a first come, first served basis and you will not be able to choose your spot.

- Lot 1 (front row, Reserved) - $300. Front row with clear, unobstructed view of the stage and screen. You will park on the race track around the stage with no other cars between you and the stage.

- Lot 1 (side view, Reserved) - $250. Side stage with clear view of stage and screen. You will park on the race track to the side of the stage, angled so that the stage and screen can be seen clearly out of the front of your car.

- Lot 2 (GA) - $200. This is the closest of the GA lots. You will park in front of the screen and will have a clear view of both the stage and screen.

- Lot 3 (GA) - $150. Clear view of the screen. Cars will park at an angle so they are facing the screen. Most of Lot 3 will be able to see the stage, but from further away, and the concert will mostly be enjoyed by watching the screen.

- Lot 4 (GA) - $125. Limited view of the stage; clear view of the screen. Cars will be parked further away than Lot 3 but still angled toward the screen. There will be limited view of the stage, mostly due to distance, but you can still enjoy the show with a clear view of the screen.

- Lot 5 (GA) - $125. Limited or completely obstructed view of the stage; clear view of the screen. You will park so that your car is angled toward the screen but your view of the stage may be limited or completely obstructed. You will still be able to enjoy the show with a clear view of the screen.




Why does this show have a lottery for tickets?
We strive to make every ticket buying experience as fair and easy as possible. After the last drive-in show, we received many requests for a ticket lottery and have decided to do just that. The lottery will give everyone an equal chance to get tickets. Winners will be chosen randomly and emailed information on how to buy tickets.

How will lottery entrants be chosen randomly?
Once the lottery is closed, all entrants will be randomized using a third party number generating system. Prior to randomization, any duplicate entries will be removed.

How long do I have to enter the lottery?
You have until 11am ET on Thursday, October 8 to enter the lottery.

When will I find out if I’ve won the lottery?
Whether you win the lottery or not, everyone who enters will receive an email with their results by October 8 at 8pm ET.

If I’m an Avett Guild member, can I register for both the Avett Guild lottery and the general public lottery?
No. We love our Avett Guild members, but in order to give all fans an equal chance at getting tickets, you can only enter one lottery.

What is the ticket transfer and refund policy?
Tickets are non-refundable but are transferable. You will be able to log into your Project Admission account (our ticketing partner for this event) and transfer your ticket to another email address prior to PDF tickets being emailed out. Tickets are PDF print-at-home and will be delivered to the purchaser's email closer to the day of the event. To transfer a ticket once PDFs have been delivered, simply send the PDF file to the new recipient. The PDF ticket you receive is all that is required for entry, so please store it in a safe place. If you have any questions about your tickets or issues with your order, please contact Project Admission
here. If you have any questions about the Avett Guild or your membership, contact us at [email protected]

When will I receive my ticket?
You will receive your ticket via your Project Admission account and email by October 22 at 10am ET. 


What kind of vehicle should I bring?
Vehicles are limited to standard specifications. No oversized vehicles or vehicles that obstruct views will be allowed into the venue (i.e. campers, busses, lifted trucks, sprinter vans, etc).

Will I be able to sit outside of my car?
Social distancing practices are expected to be observed. You will be allowed to sit IN your vehicle or ON your vehicle but you will not be allowed to sit around your vehicle.

No yard/tailgate games such as, but not limited to corn hole, ladder ball, frisbee, football, baseball, etc. will be allowed.

Can I leave my engine on during the concert? How about my headlights?
No, you will be asked to turn off your headlights once parked and required to turn off your engine just before show time.

How will I hear the concert?
