The venue and music were great but the security was unreasonable. We carried ponchos in a special small cloth sack and they didn't allow the carrier. It literally fit in my pocket when it was empty ...but was much easier to carry a few items in rather than cramming them in pockets because it had a strap. Meanwhile, they didn't even check my rain boots which could have fit a half dozen handguns. Your illusion of a safe space didn't fool me. Nice job guys.

Also, you could only buy three beers the whole night with a wrist band. I guess it gets a little rapey around there after the fourth beer. In what I think is a metaphor for a Vanderbilt education, I could drink my three beers and just go to a different wrist band lady to get a new set of three beers. Again, solid planning.

Overall it was a negative experience with the exception of the actual performances. Kudos to whomever booked the Friday night bands. You're awesome. I gave my tickets away for the second night though.

I was not let into the venue because my bag was 'too large'. My bag was a small crossbody bag no longer then 6 inches. Really? No information was sent to me via email or ticket delivery that there wer...e such bag restrictions. Would have been nice to know this in advance, and not at the gate. Not only that, the women at the gate let plenty of other girls in with bags the same size as mine. The solution they provided was to leave my purse in my car. I took an uber, so this was not an option. At least have some sort of solution if you are going to turn people away after spending $40 on a ticket. This whole event was poorly organized and I was very disappointed in how the situation was handled. See More

During the late 1960’s and early 1970’s Vanderbilt students, faculty, and administrators went to great lengths to increase the amount of contact the school had with the Nashville community. One example of this community outreach was the student-formed “Free University” which offered instruction to Nashville residents in topics ranging from short wave radio to the arts. The “open campus” policy also resulted in many Nashville residents taking part in Vanderbilt campus events such as the implementation of the Rites of Spring Music Festival in 1971.
