The Caverns To Return To Underground Shows.

Out of the many venues I ardently support in my area, The Caverns have always been one of them. In this article, I shall be telling you about how they adapted to the pandemic, to recover from being closed.

In February, I published an article HERE about how they had returned to live music by devising a plan to host above ground shows on their property all spring this year. However it has been announced that they will be returning to the underground facility in august.

Here is a plethora of information on what’s going on for the next few months, and as far as I can tell, they will be returning to the underground in august. It appears to be the outdoor pod atmosphere that will be continuing until august 8th.

Now, this brings me to another quandary that hasn’t yet been resolved by my own emails. I bought tickets last year for the taping of Bluegrass Underground, and it has not been rescheduled or re announced yet.  I’m currently hanging onto my tickets, in hopes that they will re schedule it underground as it was intended.

The Caverns is proud to bring back live music in a responsible way with a new, socially distanced venue—The Caverns Above Ground Amphitheater.

Join us outdoors on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Payne’s Cove for an epic night of music.

For these concerts, we have a solid plan to bring us all together, but it is going to take everyone doing their part. We’re all in this together. Between our staff, the artists, their crew and YOU—we are going to make this work!

Guests will arrive at staggered times, be asked COVID-19 screening questions, receive a temperature check, and enjoy the show from socially distanced pods. You’re welcome to bring your own chairs for this show as seating will not be provided. Masks will be mandatory, except when guests are in their pods. All concessions and merchandise will be ordered through an app and delivered contactless to your pod eliminating lines and limiting the need to leave your pod.

While the music plays on above ground, restrooms will be used inside The Caverns subterranean music venue to give guests an opportunity to duck below the surface to see the world famous underground music venue.

For all aspects of the event, The Caverns will adhere to the State of Tennessee’s Tennessee Pledge based on CDC guidance to bring back live music.
