Help Keep It Clean!
Please keep the campground clean. Our gracious hosts have opened up their private property to allow us to come together. Cigarette butts are NOT biodegradable and are picked up one by one after the festival. Please help secure this beautiful venue and keep YOUR ticket price down by cleaning up after yourself. Thank you.
Audio & Video Recording
The French Broad River Festival allows audio & video recording as long the artist also allows it. If an artist that is playing does not allow recording we ask that you please be respectful of their wishes and turn off your recording devices. Set up of recording devices is allowed in a designated area by the soundboard. Please bring your own microphones to record, as we cannot guarantee any type of soundboard access and soundboard recording outputs are often already taken by our archival crew. Bring your own power! We cannot guarantee any type of access to AC power. The sound crew is extremely busy, so please do not interrupt them in their duties with special requests. Thank you!
Bring a good attitude and plan to have an awesome weekend of music and fun!
