    Carry at music festival

    I was wondering if it would be legal to carry a gun at a music festival in the state of Tennessee. I am going to Bonnaroo and would like to have a gun in my RV but don't know if it is legal. I have emailed the admins but have not yet received word.

    Festivals usually have a no weapon rule. However, the legality of it is different. I am assuming that it is a private event so they may be able to tell you that you are not allowed to have a firearm.

    The forum staff are not lawyers and we don't give legal advice.

    Your best bet is to seek advice from the Tennessee Attorney General's office.

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Just a couple of considerations:

    Will you be under the influence of any drugs or alcohol during the event?

    Will any of the people with access to your RV be under the influence?

    If so, then leave the gun at home. If not then by all means keep it in the RV locked up or in a safe place that only you know about. It is better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it.

    Check your state laws. Louisiana's statutes say that we can not carry anywhere that a permit is required for an event, which of course means festivals, and gatherings, and whatnot.

    Hey guys,

    This is my first post, but the Bonnaroo website says NO weapons. I'm going, and unfortunately, I'm leaving the gun at home.

    They serve alcohol there, so NO.
