2019 Tickets


We work with Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department and other various security departments to create the safest possible environment for you. Police officers are on site for your safety, so please do not hesitate to ask them for assistance if you feel unsafe.

We want every guest attending Headwaters Country Jam to feel safe and know we are here to protect you. Below you will find general guidelines on how you can help, and how we are working to make this year the safest year yet.



  • Have a list of emergency contact info, allergies and medications on your person in case our emergency team needs to know!
  • Mother nature can be unpredictable! Though we will be monitoring the weather at all times, to prepare, it’s important that you check the weather right before leaving for the event. This way you can be prepared with rain gear, warm clothes, or anything else you may need to be comfortable in the case of unpleasant weather!


  • IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING. Whether it’s someone looking ill, an unruly guest, or something that seems suspicious – Grab the nearest police officer, security or staff member for immediate assistance! You can also text us “HEADWATERSHELP + YOUR MESSAGE” to 41400 from 9 AM to 9 PM.
  • Take a moment to look over the map, locate all medical tents and emergency exits so you know the quickest way to safety in an emergency!
  • Be considerate of those around you! There are a lot of people attending and all for one reason — TO HAVE FUN! Let’s make Headwaters Country Jam enjoyable for everyone!


  • STAY CALM! There are teams available to help and plans in place in case of emergency. Keep you and others around you calm and listen to any instructions given to you by an emergency responder or security officer.
  • Follow the emergency exit signs. Please take a moment to review the map and look for the emergency exits. These exits will also be marked with signs in the venue, so take a moment once you enter to make yourself familiar with their locations in the event of an evacuation.
  • KEEP UP-TO-DATE! In the event of an evacuation or emergency we will post updates via our social network pages and app: TwitterFacebook, and Website. Keep your eyes on these sites for all safety and scheduling updates!


For the security of everyone at Headwaters Country Jam, all people and vehicles on festival grounds are subject to a full and complete search prior to entry, at both the campgrounds and venue. This may include a full body pat-down and magnetometer screening before entry. If you would like to be screened by security personnel of your same gender, please let security personnel know prior to the search process. Screening of children will always take place with the consent of a parent or guardian.

Any person that refuses to follow security policies will be refused entry to the event.


All ticket holders are able to come and go as they please but will go through the security screening EVERY TIME they enter the venue.
