Less than a month away! In the Pines updates

Graphic for In the Pines

BRISTOL, Tenn.-Va. (May 7, 2024) – We’re one month away from the inaugural In the Pines, coming June 1 to Historic Downtown Bristol, Tenn.-Va. This latest music venture for the nonprofit Birthplace of Country Music (BCM)–the same organization that brings the annual Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival–unites an extraordinary grouping of outlaws and straight-shooters in one white-hot concert event, including GRAMMY Award-winning singer-songwriter, actor and filmmaker Dwight Yoakam, sassy, multi-platinum cross-over queen  Elle King, “unboxable” alt-country crooner Paul Cauthen, and Wyatt Flores, an emerging artist All Country News refers to as a “musical juggernaut and country music phenom.” BCM is fine-tuning In the Pines as we draw closer to the date, including making it easier for folks to buy tickets..

“We have added guest check-out so you won’t need to create an account to purchase tickets, a site map, and frequently asked question updates to the website,” said Shauna Tilson, BCM’s Director of Development. “We’ve also updated our re-entry policy, which will now allow ticket buyers to come and go from the event site up until 6 p.m. that evening.”

Additionally, BCM has added a payment plan for those who wish to purchase in installments. General admission tickets are $100 (+ tax/fee). For those who prefer the VIP treatment, $200 (+ tax/fee) will get you a ticket to the event, preferred seating, access to the VIP restroom trailer, a drink ticket and an event t-shirt.

“To see any of these artists individually, you’re looking at $40 to $100 a ticket depending on the venue and where your seats would be located,” adds Tilson. “We are so excited to bring them all together in Bristol for an economical price.”

Gates for In the Pines will open at 2 p.m. ET and be located at the intersection of Cumberland and Lee Streets by the Bristol, Va. City Courthouse. The event stage and seating area will be inside the parking area between the Bristol Train Station and WCYB.

Road closures will only affect the area of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. between WCYB, the Bristol Va. City Courthouse and the Bristol Train Station up to State Street, which will remain open to traffic. On the Virginia side, Scott and Lee Streets will remain open for detours.

A clear bag policy will be strictly enforced. Only clear bags no larger than 12″ x 6″ X 12″ will be allowed. Seating at In the Pines will not be provided; event-goers are encouraged to bring their own camp chairs or blankets. There will be a designated dance area in front of the stage where chairs will not be allowed. Food, beverage, and merchandise vendors will also be on site.

“At the end of the day, In the Pines is a fundraiser for BCM,” adds Tilson. “All proceeds from the event go towards operating costs for our organization. We sincerely hope the community will show their support and buy a ticket–it’s going to be an amazing music experience you won’t want to miss!”
