What are your COVID-19 protocols?
Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion is prohibited from enacting a vaccination/negative test policy for ticket buyers. As an event that utilizes public, outdoor spaces and privately-owned businesses and vendors, the stipulations surrounding our event protocols are unique. We strongly encourage vaccinations, and the use of masks are encouraged in enclosed, indoor spaces, but not mandatory.
Can I bring a cooler?
Sorry, no coolers allowed, but we recommend bringing a portable water bottle to refill as needed.
Can I bring my pet?
The festival is not a safe space for your family pet. It’s loud and the weather is unpredictable, also there’s little green space. We understand that Downtown residents must take their pets outside for potty breaks, we just ask that you please pick up after your pet.
Service animals are welcome at the festival.
When do festival gates open?
Friday festival gates open at 3:00pm, Saturday at 9:00am, Sunday at 10:00am.

BAND / BOOKING
How can my band get booked for the festival?
Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion no longer accepts unsolicited artist submissions. We appreciate your interest in wanting to participate in our festival, but due to the sheer volume of submissions we receive, we do not have the resources to give each submission its due diligence. We have an active Music Committee that is always exploring and researching. If they are interested in discussing an offer with you or your band, they will reach out to you. Thank you for your understanding.
I am an artist scheduled to play Bristol Rhythm. What should I do if I have questions?
Please have your booking agent or band representative email Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion’s talent buyer, Micah Davidson firstname.lastname@example.org.
