Alcohol is strictly prohibited for general admission because the venue is located on New York State Park Property. For certain concerts it is tolerated while tailgating if it discreet and out of cups, but State police can still ticket or arrest you. Due to the strict Agency policy of New York State Parks, alcohol is served only in the VIP tent area. Only VIP tent passes will get you into this area. These are separate additional tickets. Select concerts you can purchase these passes, you have to check - sometimes they are listed and they get sold fast. VIP tent passes alone are listed sporadically at - You still need a concert ticket to enter the venue. Smoking is prohibited.
Alcohol update 2014: It is now available to all over 21 in the Backstage Oasis - you cannot take the alcohol out of this area and the show is not visible in the area, only on screens. Read more here:
