Country Jam is right around the corner. Do you know who is playing? What about camping policies? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

At this year’s Country Jam, artists include Jake Owen, Kellie Pickler, Lady Antebellum, Led Stetson Band, Eric Church, American Young, Brantley Gilbert, and The High Rollers.

The festival is set for Thursday through Sunday, June 19-22, at Country Jam Ranch — 1065 Highway 6 & 50, Mack. Daily tickets cost $79-99 in advanced or $90-120 after June 17. Adult four-day general admission tickets cost $145 in advance, and $160 after June 17. Primitive camping is limited and costs $115 with a four-day ticket.

Student pricing is available as well.

CONCERT TIPS

General admission tickets are per person, as you will be given a wristband for your access to the festival. Don’t lose it; it’s not replaceable.

Photos are allowed inside the festival, but please no video.

Bring a lawn chair to sit, as standing all day can be tiring. Chairs are only provided to VIPs and reserved areas.

As this event is outside (and in Colorado), weather can change quickly. Dress in layers. Bring a jacket and sunscreen.

Parking costs $10, so carpooling is recommended.

Gates open at 2 p.m. on Thursday, and noon Friday through Sunday.

No outside food or beverages are allowed on festival grounds. An empty bottle is acceptable to fill for water.

Drink lots of water, as Mack gets hot this time of year.

CAMPING TIPS

All camping is primitive. Drinking water, portable bathrooms, and garbage disposal is available.

A convenience store and hot showers are available on the far west of the campground.

Twenty-four-hour security is available, but secure your campsite just in case.

No outside food or beverages are allowed in the festivals. Leave treats at the campsite.

There is a 1 a.m. noise curfew; please respect fellow campers.

No campfires or open flames allowed.
