Bring back the old tailgating policies that allow for a day of fun in the run up to a concert.

Besides the artists, half of the enjoyment of attending concerts at your venue is the atmosphere created outside in the hours leading up to the event. This is a bad choice to change your policies because it will make it a less attractive venue. This is particularly true for people drive from great distances like Dade and Broward Counties. Please sign this petition if you agree.

      It looks like the Dave Matthews weekend went well. I hope you had a great time. Seems like your efforts to get Cruzan to pay attention paid off. Once again Thanks for your support.

    2. Spoke to the GM of Cuzan yesterday

      I spoke to GM of Cruzan yesterday, and thanks to your support they have moved a little bit in our direction. They have changed their policy to allow tailgating up until 30 minutes after the opening act. He stated that they were likely going to reverse course on the banning of tents, but I didn't see it in their updated policy. Let's keep up the pressure, please ask any of your friends that you go to concerts with to also sign the petition. Thanks for your support!

      I love this venue for a good DMB show, however half the experience is the tailgate. How the venue can expect paying patrons to sit in the lots for hours with out a shade canopy is mind-boggling. I understand that there have been issues in the past with unruly guests not following the guidelines. Deal with the individuals. Don't punish the masses; the majority of the concertgoers follow the rules and are there to enjoy their favorite band. Bring back the old tailgating policies and let us enjoy our shows!

      I have attended DMB at Cruzan with a large group of friends for the past 5 years. These new policies are completely ridiculous and insensitive to those who spend a lot of their hard working money for this one evening to see their favorite band. Now we must also inconvenience the fans and make sure they don't have any shade to beat the heat. Get a clue.

      Iv'e been coming to Cruzan since 2006 and I've come every year for DMB. I have a group of about forty that patron Cruzan because of the tailgate we throw for each day. Not allowing the use of tents, shades and chairs in prime summer Florida heat is absurd and irresponsible. If these policies remain in place, this will be my last year at this venue.

      Dave Matthews Band show and tailgaiting just go hand and hand. Too much fun to be had with all of the fans, before the show! Sometimes we just rather walk on up to the show after the openning act begins and/or ends.
