Just like its name implies, Lakes Jam is a destination that caters to music lovers from near and far and the crowds gather to make the most of some incredible performances. Big names take to the stage throughout Lakes Jam 2021 including the likes of the Brothers Osborne, RATT, Hairball, Matt Stell, Runaway June, The Plot Hounds, Larry Fleet, Jon Pardi, and more! Complete with a state-of-the-art stage and breathtaking sound system, these live concerts put festival goers right in the heart of the creative vibe and deliver up an outdoor concert experience that’s quite unlike any other.

Activities Beyond the Music

What makes Lakes Jam 2021 such an exceptional experience is the fact that beyond the music, this festival is filled with unique and fun activities to enjoy. Those who’ve purchased their festival pass can pick and choose between options like watercross, drift car racing, lawnmower racing, poker tournaments, bean bag tournaments, and even costume contests!

Watercross events feature high horsepower sleds racing an oval course on the waves. Drift car competitions will provide viewers with the option to observe vehicles navigating a track at up to 100mph thanks to modified engines that push 700Hp. Lawnmower races are a fun-for-everyone event, while poker tournaments promise to be a challenge that highlights who has the best poker face in town. To participate in the tournament requires 2000 in chips and the tournament revolves around 20-minute rounds.

The bean bag competitions and costume contests are ideal for participants of all ages and while there is a $20 participation fee, the rewards are worth the effort. Prizes range from two- to three-day festival tickets to free merch to keep as a souvenir of the fun!

Those who have tickets to the Lakes Jam 2021 musical performances can enhance their experience by booking backstage tours or meet-and-greet events that give you a chance to come face-to-face with some of your favorite artists.

Festival Logistics and Ticketing

Planning in advance is the best way to make the most of your Lakes Jam 2021 experience and there are plenty of options available when it comes to customizing ticket purchases. Festival participants can choose to purchase a three-day pass to savor every day of the fun at multiple tier options ranging from general admission to VIP. Single-day passes to the event are also available upon request and can be purchased as VIP experiences or general admission options.

If you’re planning on attending a musical performance and would prefer reserved seating, it’s possible to add that extra to your event pass for up to the entire three days! While general admission tickets provide access to the main concert bowl, VIP tickets allow guests to make their way to the front of the stage and enjoy a close-up experience with the artists and music they admire.

In addition to an amazing view, VIP ticket holders at Lakes Jam 2021 will enjoy access to complimentary soda, water, food, and beer as well as designated restroom access, covered dining areas, and exciting musical performances that happen in between the main stage performances!
