Tailgating

tail

The Bayou Country Superfest and LSU encourage fans to come to the Festival early and enjoy the great tradition of LSU tailgating. We encourage fans to tailgate in a responsible manner, respectful of the campus and of the other fans attending the Festival. Please help keep the campus clean by bagging your trash and using recycling containers. LSU’s Facilities Services Department distributes trash bags throughout campus for your convenience. For the safety and enjoyment of all festival goers, please keep the following guidelines in mind:

Bands
Live musical bands are not allowed at tailgating sites.

Caterers
Must have proper parking permits to be admitted to private tailgate areas in reserved lots.

Cookers
Must have proper parking permits to be admitted to private tailgate areas in reserved lots.

First Aid
For the safety of Festival goers, first aid stations are staffed throughout the stadium. If you need assistance or are with someone who does, contact the nearest aid station, law enforcement officer or stadium marshal. Festival goers can also call (225) 578-HELP (225-578-4357) for assistance.

Flammables
Charcoal must be disposed of properly. Please do not place charcoal or other flammables in trash cans, under trees or leave it in the parking areas.

Food Distribution
Companies may not issue sample products, and no food, drink, or other items may neither be sold nor given to the general public.

Generators
Portable electrical generators are permitted, but are discouraged. For temporary electrical needs, LSU recommends the use of battery operated inverters that convert the battery current to house current. These recommended devices do not generate hazardous carbon monoxide emissions, do not require gasoline cans and resultant hazards, and do not create noise that is potential damaging to hearing and a nuisance to fellow tailgaters. The operation of portable electrical generators that create excessive noise, emission hazards or other safety concerns will not be permitted.

Glass Containers
Glass containers are strongly discouraged for use during tailgating activities.

Music (Amplified)
Music must be confined to your tailgate area and speakers must be directed into your tailgate party. All music must be turned off by midnight the night before the event and by 2 a.m. on event nights. Tailgaters are encouraged to contact LSU Police at (225) 578-3231 when music from another tailgate party becomes a nuisance.

Pets
No pets allowed except service animals.

Political Activity
Political signage that implies endorsement of any political candidate or any political issue may not be displayed nor may political materials be distributed. Parking permits do not imply a permit to conduct political activity.

Port-o-Lets
Individuals may not arrange to bring portable restrooms onto campus. LSU provides port-o-lets and restrooms in many buildings throughout campus for the convenience of Festival goers.

Security and Safety
It is the responsibility of each tailgate party to secure tailgate items prior to entering the stadium. Tailgaters should lock food, beverages and valuables out of sight in vehicles; extinguish all fires or flames; unplug electrical outlets; secure barbecue pits, chairs, and ice chests; and store beverages in locked containers. LSU and Bayou Country Superfest are not responsible for loss or damage to vehicles or property contained in vehicles as a result of theft, vandalism, property damage, fire, collision or other cause.

Sidewalks and Bike Paths
Tailgating is not permitted on sidewalks and bike paths.

Signage and Banners
Banners and signage recognizing businesses may not be displayed nor may promotional materials be distributed without prior approval by the Bayou Country Superfest.

Solicitations
Solicitations of any kind within LSU facilities or on LSU premises are prohibited unless specifically approved by LSU and Bayou Country Superfest. The distribution of flyers or leaflets on parked vehicles is expressly prohibited.

Tents
Fans using a tent or canopy over the tailgate of a vehicle should restrict the size to no larger than 10’ x 10’, must keep travel lanes open for vehicular traffic and should not take up space in other parking spaces. Tents may not be used to save parking spaces. Tents may not be staked into the ground. Tents may not be set up on sidewalks, bike paths, travel lanes, or any other area of regular flow of pedestrian traffic.

Utilities Owned by LSU
The use of electrical outlets in or on LSU facilities, or other utilities such as water sources is expressly prohibited. This policy will be strictly enforced and violators will be subject to arrest for theft of utilities.

Vending
Vending is strictly prohibited in any of LSU’s parking lots for this event.

This is a partial list of prohibitions. Rules and regulations subject to change. Bayou Country Superfest and LSU reserve the right to deny entry or remove from the campus anyone in violation of these policies.
