New this year! Reserved seating is available as an add-on to your ticket! Your reserved seating ticket includes one adirondack chair with beverage holders. Festival goers are able to choose the exact seat they will be sitting in. Reserved seats are purchased on a by-day basis.


Cabanas are back for #RTS2018. We are offering private, furnished cabanas as an option for festival-goers who prefer a more luxurious approach to their live music experience.

These cabanas are secure and separate from the general admission festival grounds, are partially covered to provide shelter and shade, and a dedicated porter will attend to your every need.

There are a VERY limited number of Rock The Shores Cabanas available. Price points available upon request. For more information and to secure yours, please email
