"As a fan, my dream would be to be right up there on stage with an act ... Someone would bring me a four-course meal with some really good Napa wine and beer, and I'd be able to watch the show from right there," Zac tells The Boot. "It's a full-sensory experience, not just the amazing bands and music. It's a foodie festival, as well. Gourmet food. I have a chance to show our fans the level of hospitality that we want to give them, to show them we pay attention to those kind of details."
Pre-sale tickets go on sale tomorrow (May 1) at noon ET, with the general sale opening this Saturday at 10:00 AM. Two-day festival passes start at $89, for a limited time only. Additionally, the band is once again offering the 'Front Porch Stage Box' deal, which includes on-stage seating, complimentary drinks and a meal prepared by a team of chefs under the supervision of Southern Ground Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin. Rusty is Zac's partner in the band's famous 'Eat and Greets,' feeding hundreds of fans a spread of southern comfort food before every show -- most of which is made from the guys' own recipes.
"We put so much love and care into putting it together," says Zac, "we really feel like it's well worth your money and people will leave inspired with your bellies full."
