2012 Bayou Country Superfest General Tailgating Policies

The Bayou Country Superfest and LSU encourage fans to come to the Festival early and enjoy the great tradition of LSU tailgating. We encourage fans to tailgate in a responsible manner, respectful of the campus and of the other fans
attending the Festival. Please help keep the campus clean by bagging your trash and using recycling containers. LSU’s Facilities Services Department distributes trash bags throughout campus for your convenience. For the safety and enjoyment of all Festival goers, please keep the following guidelines in mind:

Bands: Live musical bands are not allowed at tailgating sites.

Caterers: Must have proper parking permits to be admitted to private tailgate areas in reserved lots.

Cookers: Cookers on trailers are not allowed in reserved lots, and no cooker at any location on campus may be larger than a 55‐gallon drum (23” in diameter x 35” long). Cookers may not be placed in travel lanes or in parking spaces. Cookers may not be placed inside buildings.

First Aid: For the safety of Festival goers, first aid stations are staffed throughout the stadium. If you need assistance or are with someone who does, contact the nearest aid station, law enforcement officer or stadium marshal. Festival goers can also call (225) 578‐HELP (225‐578‐4357) for assistance.

Flammables: Charcoal must be disposed of properly. Please do not place charcoal or other flammables in trash cans, under trees or leave it in the parking areas.

Food Distribution: Companies may not issue sample products, and no food, drink, or other items may neither be sold nor given to the general public.

Generators: Portable electrical generators are permitted, but are discouraged. For temporary electrical needs, LSU
recommends the use of battery operated inverters that convert the battery current to house current. These recommended devices do not generate hazardous carbon monoxide emissions, do not require gasoline cans and resultant hazards, and do not create noise that is potential damaging to hearing and a nuisance to fellow tailgaters. The operation of portable electrical generators that create excessive noise, emission hazards or other safety concerns will not be permitted. 

Glass Containers: Glass containers are strongly discouraged for use during tailgating activities.

Music (Amplified): Music must be confined to your tailgate area and speakers must be directed into your tailgate party. All music must be turned off by midnight the night before the event and by 2 a.m. on event nights. Tailgaters are encouraged to contact LSU Police at (225) 578‐3231 when music from another tailgate party becomes a nuisance.

Pets: No pets allowed except service animals.

Political Activity: Political signage that implies endorsement of any political candidate or any political issue may not be
displayed nor may political materials be distributed. Parking permits do not imply a permit to conduct political activity.

Port‐o‐Lets: Individuals may not arrange to bring portable restrooms onto campus. LSU provides port‐o‐lets and restrooms in many buildings throughout campus for the convenience of Festival goers.

Security and Safety: It is the responsibility of each tailgate party to secure tailgate items prior to entering the stadium.
Tailgaters should lock food, beverages and valuables out of sight in vehicles; extinguish all fires or flames; unplug electrical outlets; secure barbecue pits, chairs, and ice chests; and store beverages in locked containers. LSU and Bayou Country Superfest are not responsible for loss or damage to vehicles or property contained in vehicles as a result of theft, vandalism, property damage, fire, collision or other cause.

Sidewalks and Bike Paths: Tailgating is not permitted on sidewalks and bike paths.

Signage and Banners: Banners and signage recognizing businesses may not be displayed nor may promotional materials be distributed without prior approval by the Bayou Country Superfest.

Solicitations: Solicitations of any kind within LSU facilities or on LSU premises are prohibited unless specifically approved by LSU and Bayou Country Superfest. The distribution of flyers or leaflets on parked vehicles is expressly prohibited.

Tents: Fans using a tent or canopy over the tailgate of a vehicle should restrict the size to no larger than 10’ x 10’, must keep travel lanes open for vehicular traffic and should not take up space in other parking spaces. Tents may not be used to save parking spaces. Tents may not be staked into the ground. Tents may not be set up on sidewalks, bike paths, travel lanes, or any other area of regular flow of pedestrian traffic.

Utilities Owned by LSU:The use of electrical outlets in or on LSU facilities, or other utilities such as water sources is expressly prohibited. This policy will be strictly enforced and violators will be subject to arrest for theft of utilities. 

Vending: Vending is strictly prohibited in any of LSU’s parking lots for this event. 

This is a partial list of prohibitions. Please visit for additional Festival information. Rules and regulations subject to change. Bayou Country Superfest and LSU reserve the right to deny entry or remove from the campus anyone in violation of these policies.
