Surrounded By The Sound Music & Arts Festival 2018 | Chattooga River Resort and Campground | Thursday, 30. August 2018

THE 2nd ANNUAL SURROUNDED BY THE SOUND MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL - The East Coast's Premier Grassroots Music & Arts Festival Presented by Sun-Dried Vibes
- Labor Day Weekend -
- August 31 - September 3, 2018 -
- Official Pre Party - August 30, 2018 -
- Chattooga River Resort & Campground -
- Long Creek, SC -

Surrounded by the Sound is the East Coast’s Premiere Grassroots Festival, showcasing the best up and coming talent on this side of the USA with a focus on the Reggae/Rock Scene. At SBTS we pride ourselves on offering attendees a sense of community and belonging to “the family we have found.” Every Labor Day weekend, we offer a peaceful getaway to the upstate of South Carolina where music lovers can escape the hustle and bustle of their daily lives and reconnect with themselves and other like minded individuals.

SBTS is inspired by and named after the song “Young One,” a collaboration between Sun-Dried Vibes (SBTS Founders) and TreeHouse! The song lyrics advise listeners to “take heed of their bare necessities, friends and family” and that we are all one core group that is “surrounded by the sound.” If you’re looking for the perfect festival to help you connect with the music you love and the community of people that make it happen, then SBTS is for you. We hope you will join us for an unforgettable and life changing experience this Labor Day Weekend.

Two Main Stages plus Acoustic & Late Night Stages, Disc Golf, Kids Zone, Craft Beer, Food & Merchandise Vendors, Art, Yoga, and GOOD VIBES!

Ticket FAQ
(Q) What is the difference between Early Bird Tickets and Phase 1, 2 & 3 Tickets?
(A) Early Bird Tickets, Phase 1, 2 & 3 Tickets are all the same ticket. This ticket is good for General Admission for the entire weekend (Friday through Sunday). The names only distinguish between price.

(Q) Does a VIP Upgrade include my General Admission Ticket with it?
(A) No. A VIP Upgrade is an Upgrade for your GA Ticket. You will still need to purchase a GA Ticket along with the VIP Upgrade.

(Q) What if I want to bring a RV/Camper or Car Camp? Is this possible?
(A) If you plan on attending in an RV/Camper or if you wish to Car Camp, you will need to purchase the respective parking pass for that as well. These camping spots gain you similar access as those with VIP Upgrades, so these are premium spots! There is also a small questionnaire you will need to fill out to help us accommodate you properly. If you have extra questions, email lucky@sbtsfestival.com

(Q) What does the Ultimate VIP Ticket entail?
(A) The Ultimate VIP Ticket includes your GA Ticket plus your VIP Upgrade, plus it gives you Artist Credentials. This means you have access to Artist Camping, Artist Hospitality (meals included) and side stage / back stage access. You will essentially be treated as an Artist and a SBTS VIP all weekend! It’s the ULTIMATE TICKET!

(Q) What does the Pre Party Ticket include?
(A) The Pre Party Ticket is a big bonus for a small price. Pre Party Tickets gain you early access to the campground (8 AM on Thursday morning), Pre Party Campsites (closer to the path leading to the music venue) plus an extra night of music starting at 5 PM!!

(Q) Why do I have to buy a ticket to Volunteer?
(A) Volunteer Tickets are refundable tickets! This means that upon completion of your volunteer shifts/duties, you will be refunded your ticket price in full. This helps ensure that we can count on you to help us create the perfect atmosphere and experience for our attendees and for yourself!
