Attending Father John Misty at Festival Field? Here's What You Need to Know.

Surly Nation: Attending Saturday’s Father John Misty show at Surly Festival Field? Awesome. Here is what you need to know. You will NOT be tested on this. We’re not jerks.

IMPORTANT SHIT TO KNOW:

  • Arrival & Parking: Concert-goers should take alternate transport if at all possible. There will be VERY limited parking. Overflow parking will be available at SKB, CSM and UEL lots all starting at 5 PM. The Green Line is a great way to get here, as we are located just down the block from the Prospect Park stopBIKING IS AN EXTREMELY GOOD OPTION! Bring your own or use Nice Ride to get to Surly Festival Field. Everyone will be ID’d at the gate.
  • Food/Drink: There will be an arsenal of food trucks in the venue. So come hungry and ready to eat some delicious grub. There will also be N/A beverages available for purchase at the food trucks. And, yes, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to grab a beer—so come thirsty, too. Only beer TICKETS will be accepted at the beer tents, so be sure to buy those before going up to order. As always, drink responsibly and don’t be dumb.
  • IDs: Bring ‘em! The show is 18+ and the beer is 21+.
  • WATER: Feel free to bring a SEALED OR EMPTY WATER BOTTLE to the venue. There will be a water station inside for you to fill it up. Water bottles will also be available for sale at the merchandise tent. “Hydration is important.” –Abraham Lincoln, our 16th President.
  • Cash/Credit: You can use cash or credit to get beer tickets, food and merch. If you do need cash, there will be an ATM in the concert venue for your use.
  • Other: No outside food or beverage, no chairs, no umbrellas. Breast pumps are allowed. There will be NO RE-ENTRY once you exit the venue. And as ever, don’t be dumb or we will throw you out.

For anyone NOT attending the show who still wants to hit up the Beer Hall, here’s what YOU should know:

  • There will still be limited parking, but you can also park in the overflow lots (SKB, CSM & UEL Lots) starting at 5pm, and we’ll have valet available as well.
  • We will be running the Beer Hall business-as-usual, same hours, same menu. With an expected 5,000 folks coming to the concert venue, we DO recommend that you get here a little earlier that you’d expect to grab a table.
