NEW ON-SALE DATE FOR JASON ISBELL AND THE 400 UNIT
MONDAY, MAY 17 AT 9AM

Due to overwhelming demand for Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, and our desire to continue to ensure social distancing and safety for our audience, we are reconfiguring our stadium seating chart and postponing ticket sales for Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit. The new on-sale date is Monday, May 17 at 9am; tickets will be available online, by phone at 828.262.4046, and in-person at the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts. This change will allow us to create an optimal seating configuration for our patrons, ensure safety protocols, and guarantee a wonderful experience for Jason’s fans. Thank you for your patience.

All other festival tickets will go on sale Monday, May 10 at 9am.

WELCOME TO AN APPALACHIAN SUMMER FESTIVAL 2021!

An Appalachian Summer Festival will feature nearly 30 days of live, in-person, socially distanced and COVID-compliant performances, plus additional livestreams and virtual programming. The season will be staged across two outdoor venues, including Kidd Brewer Stadium and the State Farm Road Concert Lot, a university-owned space adjacent to the Greenway Trail, which will be outfitted as an outdoor theatrical stage with pod seating to ensure a fun, festive and safe concert setting. The Schaefer Center will host several limited-attendance events, including performances that offer two different show times and livestream options. The 35th Anniversary Rosen Walk, Turchin Center exhibition openings and a variety of virtual offerings round out the festival’s diverse arts menu this summer.
