The Caverns is proud to announce it’s first, full capacity outdoor show featuring Fleet Foxes on Sunday, July 31st at The Caverns Amphitheater. The venue, originally opened in the fall of 2020 as a socially-distanced venue in response to COVID-19 with limited capacity, will now host full capacity crowds of up to 5,500 guests per show with an estimated 10 shows in 2022, and 30 shows in 2023.

With stunning views of the Cumberland Plateau, the reconfigured amphitheater will have chair seating available close to the stage for almost all shows. Guests in this front section will have access to restrooms and their own bar inside the cave. At the back of the amphitheater, a new concessions building and restrooms have been added as well as food trucks. Pop-up bars will be placed in key locations throughout the amphitheater, too. For the rear sections, guests can bring their own chairs or take advantage of a new chair rental program.

The Caverns Amphitheater will also be utilized for multi-day events in conjunction with The Caverns underground concert hall giving guests a multi-stage festival experience.

What’s more, The Caverns has added a camping option for almost every show. Such an overnight accommodation is typically only found at multi-day festivals, but at The Caverns, you can channel the festival vibe with your single night outing. In years to come, additional campground amenities will be added.

A scenic meandering path from the campground and the surrounding vast new parking lots leads the way to The Caverns amphitheater.

All told, park your car, pitch a tent, see your favorite band in an epic setting, and spend the night under the stars in Grundy County, TN. Stay tuned for a massive new show announcement next week for The Caverns Amphitheater and multiple show announcements to come over the next few weeks.

“The Caverns Amphitheater began as a “pandemic pivot” and way to safely do shows in pods during the toughest times of the last couple of years and now, with the addition of a permanent stage, concessions, parking and camping, we look forward to hosting more artists and patrons outside with the same vibe and experience that makes The Caverns such a singular musical destination.” Todd Mayo
