FAQ

GENERAL

The Black Radio Stage is a “Phone-Free Zone.” Before entering the lawn for our main stage, all phones, smart watches and accessories will be secured in individual Yondr pouches. Guests will maintain possession of their belongings at all times. If at any time you need to access your device, a Yondr representative can unlock your pouch outside of the stage viewing area. All devices will be re-secured in Yondr pouches before returning to the main stage.
 
Anyone seen using a device (phone, smart watch or accessories) during the performance will be escorted out of the venue by security. We appreciate your cooperation in creating a phone-free experience.
