Important: New Bag Policy for Liberty Bowl Stadium

Beginning in 2017, Liberty Bowl Stadium has implemented a Clear Bag Policy which allows only the following bags through the admission gates:

Please note that The Bandmasters Championship does not control this policy. It was implemented by stadium management for the safety and security of all attendees, and is now a common procedure at large sports venues.

We encourage you to view the stadium's Prohibited Items List if you plan to bring any items into the stadium.

Directions to Liberty Bowl Stadium


Spectator parking is located in the Blue, Gold and Red lots, located on the north side of the stadium. You may access these from Central Avenue (Access Gates 6 & 7), or from Hollywood Street (Access Gate 4). Spectator lot parking is $5.

Spectator will not be permitted to park with band buses and equipment trucks in the band parking lots.

Admissions Gate

Spectators may enter the Liberty Bowl at Gate 3. Tickets are on sale at that location. Contest programs are also available at the ticket booth and inside the concourse.

Band students only will be permitted to enter the stadium at Gate 4.

Due to security procedures that are now typical at public events, please be prepared to have your bags and purses searched.

Absolutely no food or beverages may be brought in from outside the stadium. Ice chests and water coolers are prohibited. This applies to spectators, band members, staff and chaperones. This rule is in adherence to the stadium's contract with its concessionaire.

First Aid

Emergency medical services are available throughout the event. The First Aid station is located on the stadium concourse next to Gate 4 (band entrance). Please locate an usher if you need assistance.


Out of respect for the performers and the audience, spectators are to refrain from entering or leaving the seating area during a band performance. This will be enforced by the ushers.
