4 Things You WON'T Be Doing When You Have a HANKFEST Gold Circle Seat

You’re guaranteed a seat at Pepsi HANKFEST, but are you ready to risk not seeing LOCASH, Scotty McCreery, Lindsay Ell, Danielle Bradbery, Walker Hayes, and Michael Tyler as CLOSE as you can?!

That’s 6 ARTISTS. 6 up-and-coming artists you’ll regret not seeing up close. Past HANKFEST artists are some of country music's hottest superstars now and when that Timehop memory pops up, you BET you’ll be sharing it & saying “I saw them when…”

“What are Gold Circle Seats?”

They’re the ONLY RESERVED SEATING that surrounds the stage. That means all the other General Admission seats are first come, first serve, and if you’re not in line ready when doors open… you might not get that spot you were hoping for.

“Why should I be in the Gold Circle?”

Because these are things you WON’T be doing when you have a Gold Circle Seat…


No standing in line for you!

It’s not like we won’t make waiting in line for doors to open a party—you know we’re always ready to HANK IT UP! There will be free swag, Pepsi samples, and plenty to keep you entertained! BUT with a Gold Circle Seat you already have your spot! The only plan of action you need is to gather your friends and cruise in when you're ready!

15 minutes til doors open! Happy #HANKFEST!!!

You don't have to ask someone to save your seat!

Group trips to grab another drink, take some photobooth pics, and have the same GREAT seats when you get back? Check!

Or, you know, when you and your concert buddy WIN MEET & GREETS for your fav HANKFEST artist! Yeah… that’s a thing that can happen. Make sure you’re following us on all of our social and pay attention to it day-of!

You won't have a camera roll full of blurry, far away pics that make you think, "Was I even there?"

Yikes… [insert facepalm emoji here]... Delete.


Now THIS is Insta-worthy!



FOMO? Pshhh PLEASE. You won't have that. You rallied your pals & had a BLAST!

This is an ALL DAY PARTY for you, your friends, and the whole family! Just because summer concert season ended doesn't mean we're slowin' down this Fall! These 6 artists are ready to spend the day with their Indiana fans! Their BEST FANS... in our totally unbiased opinion.

Plus, you're helping your community! $2 of every ticket sold will be donated to Sheltering Wings—a local domestic violence shelter.
