How come I need to get a ticket? Isn’t it free?

General Admission for the concert is free. There are ticket upgrades available to sit closer to the stage.

Why are you taking donations?  or How much does it cost?

We want to keep this event free for everyone, but in order to do that, we need your help.  We are asking you to give a suggested donation of $5-$10 for each person attending to help off-set the costs of the event.

What time does the Reserved Seating area open?

The Reserved Seating area opens at 2 PM.  With each Reserved Seating ticket purchased, you will receive a “Reserved Seating” wristband that grants you access to the Reserved Seating area for the rest of the day and for all the performers.

Can I bring my dog?

There is a dog park located on the south side of Old Field Beach, however pets are NOT ALLOWED in the festival area.

Can we put up a canopy tent or umbrella?

We only allow tents and umbrellas in DESIGNATED areas, which is to the right of the stage (as you look at the stage) on the outside of the sidewalk.

Why do we have to pay to get close to the stage?

We want to keep Rock the Lake free for everyone, but there are many costs associated with an event this big.  One way we can recoup some costs is by selling the areas around the stage.

Why do we have to pay for parking?

Parking is free unless you want to park closer to the concert area. Reserved parking can be purchased for $20.

Will the artists be doing autographs after the show?

Some artists will be available for autographs at their merchandise table after their performance.

How can I meet the artists?

You can meet some artists at their merchandise tables at designated times during the event.  You can meet the headliner and pre-headliner only by purchasing the Q&A or Meet & Greet ticket.  *Please note*  Don’t volunteer with the expectation of meeting the artists, as this will disqualify you from volunteering.  See full volunteer rules at https://rockthelakeohio.com/volunteer-rules-of-conduct/

Will food vendors be on-site?

Food vendors are available. You are also welcome to bring your own coolers with food and drink. Just follow the park rules found here: http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/faq

Is seating provided?

No, you will need to bring a blanket or lawn chair in order to enjoy the concert.

Is there handicapped parking close to the concert?

There are three rows on the asphalt lot for accessible parking.  Follow the “Handicap Parking” signs.  These spaces are free of charge and are first come, first serve.

Where do we park?

All vehicles will be directed to the grass lot, unless you:

  1. notify the attendant that you need handicap parking
  2. are driving a motorcycle, or
  3. you are a volunteer of the event.

Is there motorcycle parking?

The parking attendant should direct all motorcycles to the paved lot for parking.  There is a designated area just for motorcycles.
