Country Concert 2024 Tickets & Insider Tips

First things first: tickets. 

You can avail of a 3-day General Admission (GA) entrance ($339), two days ($296), and single days ($149 for Thursday, $155 for Friday, and $178 for Saturday). There are also Reserved, Platinum, and VIP Plus seats for single days: Thursday ($179 for Reserved, $209 for Platinum, and $299 for VIP) and Friday ($215 for Platinum and $299 for VIP). You can also win tickets by buying raffle entries. The proceeds will go towards the Sidney Rotary Scholarship Fund, which awards scholarships to local high school graduates in Sidney and Shelby County in both traditional and non-traditional education paths. 

For the 3-day admission, you can order a Friends & Family option ($143) so that different people can use your seat daily. Children under 9 are free in the GA area, but children under 10 need a ticket for the reserved seating sections. 

Additionally, for VIPs who want an even fancier experience, a deluxe full-course catered meal package ($121 for the first seating, $96 for the second seating) is available. 

As for accommodations, they’re offering Hotel/Bus packages, which you can add to any ticket and include a 3-night hotel stay, deluxe motor coach rides to and from the concert, as well as a special Bus parking close to the show area entrance. There are two hotel options: Holiday Express in Troy, Ohio, and Best Western in Wapakoneta, Ohio ($768 for single, $944 for double, $1,120 for triple, and $1,296 for quad). But if you want to explore, there are several hotels scattered nearby. 

You can also camp at the venue, with multiple options of RV Rental companies to deliver, set up, and instruct you on how to use it. But if you’re camping the traditional way, you can do that, too. Amenities like showers, restroom, fresh water fill-ups, pumping services

But here’s the best part.

This festival welcomes coolers in the actual music grounds – with a maximum size of  14” x 14” x 14” so they fit under your lawn chair or seat – and you can store your beers in there. You can also purchase them at the venue for a very affordable price (last year, it was $30 for 15 Keystone light beers plus a bag of ice). Umbrellas are also allowed but should be taken down during performances. And should you need to go inside and outside the venue, you can. Re-entry is allowed for as many as times as you like. 

Don’t forget the parking ($10 per car, $15 for overnight).
