Farewell Angelina | July 18

Farewell Angelina is an all-female country group featuring four powerhouse vocalists, dynamic songwriters and killer multi-instrumentalists. They have taken Nashville by storm with their magic blend of unique harmonies and a variety of stringed instruments, including two blazing violins. That enthusiasm is now spreading via word-of-mouth, social media and live shows that bring down the house.

Yes. Headlights should remain off throughout the event.

17. Can I leave the hatchback of my SUV open during the show?

Hatchbacks should be raised no higher than the top of your vehicle (level with your roof). If your hatch opens above your roofline, this blocks the view of others. You are responsible for keeping it lowered using a rope or a similar method. Hatchback lights can usually be turned off by using a pen or piece of metal to close the opened latch. To re-open the latch, just pull the lever. In order to maintain safe social distancing, we ask that you please remain inside your vehicle even with your vehicle’s hatchback open.

You may sit in a truck bed as long as no items extend above the truck’s roofline, blocking the view of others.

19. Can I leave my car running?

No. The Fire Marshal has advised us that no vehicles may be running after they are parked due to the fire hazard posed by the potential contact between dry mown grass and hot mufflers/exhaust systems.

20. How do I turn off the daytime running lights on my vehicle that stay on when I have it in accessory mode?

Every vehicle is different. Please consult the owner’s manual for your vehicle before arriving at the show. In many newer vehicles, you can disable daytime running lights by using this procedure: 

  • Place car in park or manually shift to neutral 
  • Turn off your engine and remove key
  • Set parking or emergency brake just enough to catch (not all the way)
  • Restart your car and the lights should stay off.

21. Can I roll my windows down during the show?

Absolutely, please use common courtesy if you are listening to the concert on your radio.

Please avoid smoking at this event, especially in your assigned block, as it may disturb others in attendance.
