We and the City of Jeffersonville safety forces place your security first and foremost. We secure all the perimeter streets around the venue, fence the outdoor site so no unauthorized vehicles can enter it, check every bag and all attendees when they enter, enforce a no weapon and no carry policy, and train our staff how to quickly contact trained safety and emergency response personnel.
The second rule of Abbey Road On The River: Have fun, leave the planning to us. We will solve your problems and answer all of your questions and make you happy when you show-up. We mean it!
Sorry, no refunds. If you cannot make it to the festival this year, we are willing to exchange your ticket in return for a 2020 ticket at the value of 2019 ticket.
