Jack Daniels Experience
Jack Daniel’s will once again bring a “Taste of Tennessee” to music festivals around the country this year. We invite visitors to come out and tour the nation’s oldest registered distillery from outside the Jack Daniel’s Hollow. The Jack Daniel’s Experience, a mobile museum, is bringing a little of the much-loved distillery from Lynchburg to anywhere in the USA. You’ll learn who Mr. Jack Daniel was and how he ended up with the best selling whiskey in the world. You’ll see (and smell) whiskey dripping slowly through charcoal and the new oak barrels used in maturing Tennessee’s finest whiskey. “Once you tour the Experience and spend some time with the folks from Jack, it’ll make you want to plan a visit to Lynchburg, Tennessee to see how and where we’ve made Jack Daniel’s since 1866.” The Experience is open to all folks, 21 years old and up, for tours free of charge. Games and giveaways will also be part of the entertainment at various times throughout the festival.
The Music Experience
THE MUSIC EXPERIENCE features all the elements that are involved in making music in a professional band setting. The interactive exhibit features guitars, basses, amps, drums, keyboards and electronic gear that are used by today’s most popular bands. After laying your hands on the hottest equipment available, you will walk away feeling like a rockstar and you may even see one there, too!! Come and meet your favorite band members from the festival at The Music Experience Tent. You can win free amps, free guitars and get tons of other free stuff, as well.
FYE Fan Experience
FYE will be hosting the ultimate fan & artist interactive experiences throughout the festival! FYE is the only place at the festival to get all your favorite band’s music – and maybe even get to meet your favorite Welcome To Rockville performer!!
