So What?! Music Festival at Choctaw Stadium

Friday, May 27th -Sunday, May 29


If you haven’t heard of the insane music festival happening on Memorial Day weekend, you gotta get out from under the rock you’re living under.  We’re headed back in time to bring the best of the best bands circa 2011 and we couldn’t be more excited. Like – please just look at this line up. 

So What?! Music Festival Line Up

We’ve literally been counting down the days until Memorial Day weekend. If you’ve been doing the same, here’s a few lil things you should know before you go head bangin’ into this weekend. 


If you haven’t grabbed your tickets yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Snag a full 3-day pass to make sure you catch all your favorite bands OR if for some reason you have something better to do (as if!), you can grab single day ticket for Friday, Saturday, and/or Sunday. All tickets are General Admission access.  

Party in style with a VIP upgrade option for priority entry into the festival, access to an air-conditioned VIP lounge with amenities, festival swag, meet and greets with select artists, happy hours, buffet dinner and more. 



There’s PLENTY of parking all around Choctaw Stadium and the surrounding area. BUT there’s also a lot of other events happening in The District on Memorial Day Weekend. Check out the parking map for your options around Choctaw Stadium. Prices for parking may vary and are at the discretion of the lot owner.

Duh. Concession stands on the main concourse of Choctaw Stadium will be serving up eats and drinks, along with some food trucks and other concessions outside the stadium, closer to the other stages. For the 21+ crowd, there will be bars on the field, main concourse, and around the venue to grab a drink.  

P.S. all concessions are CASHLESS! Only merch, food trucks and the box office will accept cash. 



Come on. You don’t wanna be that person stopped at the gate for having too big of a bag or bringing in your own food. Make sure your bag is 16” x 16” x 8” or smaller and leave the backpack at home. Outside food and drinks are not allowed, but you CAN bring your own EMPTY water bottle to fill up inside the festival gates. (peep the pre-order merch below to cover your bases)
