Summer Country Concert Tailgate Essentials

Concert season is in full swing, which means its time for summer tailgates! We’ve got your list of summer tailgate essentials here. Click here for a full list of summer shows coming to our area.

Every major tour is heading to the New York area this summer, so it’s time to make sure you have all the essentials ready for tailgate season!

1. Good company.
You can’t have an epic tailgate without making sure to bring some friends along! It’s not a parking lot party if you’re by yourself, but on the off chance you are, you can always make friends. People are extra nice at tailgates, especially when they’re gearing up for a night of great music.

2. Drinks, Drinks, Drinks (and some food too).
It’s important to stay hydrated outside, but what’s a country concert day without an iced cold beer (or 5). Like Luke Combs says, “Iced cold beer never broke my heart.” Make sure you bring some food along too- chips, hot dogs, and hamburgers are always welcome at a tailgate. Just don’t forget your cooler!

3. Good music.
Nothing puts people in a better mood than listening to some good music. So turn up the stereo, bring speakers, and jam to some country music before the show. Head to our Spotify for some awesome playlists to keep you pumped for the night to come!

4. Tables, chairs, and games galore.
Make sure you bring a couple of tables so you can play some of your favorite drinking games, like flip-cup or beer pong. Of course, they’re also good to keep your snacks and drinks on! If you want your tailgate section to be the place to be, we encourage you to bring some crowd favorite games like Kan Jam and corn hole too!


5. Swag!
Last, but definitely not least, make sure you’re rocking some SWAG. From hats to drink koozies to tanks, we have it all in our online store! Don’t forget to tag us in pictures of you and your friends rocking our merchandise for a chance to be featured on our Instagram!

For those of you itching to attend one of the many great performances coming soon, we have a raffle to win 2 PIT tickets to Luke Bryan’s Sunday show here. Purchase a chance and you will be entered to win!

We can’t wait to see y’all out there!
