What can I bring inside the park?
You MAY bring:

  • One bottled water
  • Needs for children (i.e. diapers, strollers, etc.)
  • Blankets and chairs
  • Umbrellas

You may NOT bring:

  • Professional recording or camera equipment.  Professional cameras are defined as cameras with a detachable lens.  Small digital and phone cameras are okay.

Forget something?: Fear not, there is a full service Convenience Store set up on site.  ATM’s are also available inside the park next to the Convenience Store.
Don’t Drink and Drive: A full-service taxi stand will be set-up outside the Blount and Martin St. exit of Downtown Live.
Rain or Shine: Downtown Live is a rain or shine event.  As they say in North Carolina: "If you don’t like the weather, stick around 15 minutes, it’ll change."  Us North Carolinians know that throughout the summer stray thunderstorms often pop up out of nowhere.  This may cause a slight delay in the schedule, but the show will go on.  Day of show stay tuned to 96Rock for weather updates.
