In the interest of enhancing existing security measures at our festivals, Summerset Jazz LLC. will
implement a new security policy regulating the size and type of bag that may be carried into all
parks/amphitheaters in which Summerset Jazz LLC. host, beginning with all 2018 festivals. The policy
was approved by a unanimous vote of park boards and amphitheater’s directors. We believe this policy
is an important enhancement to the security measures already put in place by our company.

Fans are encouraged not to bring any types of bags inside any Summerset Jazz LLC. events; however, the
following outlines bags that are permitted: Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed
12" x 6" x 12"; One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags (Ziploc bag or similar); and Small clutch bags, with
or without a handle or strap, that do not exceed 4.5" x 6.5" (approximately the size of a hand). An
exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for
this purpose.

Prohibited bags include, but are not limited to: all sizes of coolers, purses larger than a clutch bag;
briefcases; backpacks, cinch bags, and fanny packs that are not clear and/or exceed the size
restriction; luggage of any kind; computer bags/cases; camera bags/cases; binocular bags/cases or
any bag larger than the permissible size. Fans will continue to be able to carry items allowed into the
stadium in a permissible clear bag, such as binoculars and cameras.

This policy pertains to bags and is not an all-inclusive list of items that are prohibited from being taken
into the stadium. Therefore, fans should be aware of specific institutional policies regarding prohibited
items that may not be brought into that institution's stadium.


Are other events limiting bags? Yes. Majority festivals around the U.S. has a clear bag policy and have
previously implemented a clear bag policy. Additionally, some parks/amphitheaters do not permit any
bags to be brought inside the venue.

How does the new policy improve public safety? The clear bag is easily searched and significantly
reduces faulty bag searches. It also supports the Department of Homeland Security's "If You See
Something, Say Something" campaign.

Do I have to put everything I'm carrying into the permissible bags? No. Fans are limited only to the
type of bags carried into the venue, not items that they may normally bring to a venue that fit in
pockets or clutch bags (e.g., keys, makeup, feminine products, comb, phone, wallet, credit cards). Fans
may carry a blanket over their arms, and binoculars and/or camera around their necks or in their hands
without the case. Fans may also use the clear bag and clutch to carry these items and other permissible
items. Every member of the family may carry in (one) permissible bag.

What about diaper bags? Diapers and non-medically necessary items for babies and young children
must be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, would be allowed to carry an
approved clear bag and a clutch purse into the venue.

How many bags may each person bring into the stadium? One large clear bag - either a one-gallon
Ziploc style bag or the 12" x 6" x 12" clear bag - plus a small clutch that does not exceed 4.5" x 6.5". The
small clutch allows privacy for small personal items and also is easily searched.

May fans carry cameras, binoculars, smart phones or tablets separately from what they put in a clear
bag? Yes. A phone, binoculars or cameras may be carried into the venue as long as it is not in its own

Are bag chairs allowed to be carried into the venue? Fans should review each institution's prohibited
items policy to determine if bag chairs are allowed. If so, the chair must be out the bag to be checked
by security before entering the venue.

What about bringing blankets in cold weather? Fans will be able to bring blankets by tossing them over
a shoulder or arm.

If I have certain items that I need to bring into the venue for medical reasons and they won't fit in the
clear bag, what do I do? There will be designated entrances to allow screening of these bags and
medically necessary items.

Are all purses prohibited? No. Small clutch purses, with or without a handle or strap, that do not
exceed 4.5" x 6.5" are permitted along with either the 12" x 6" x 12" clear tote bag or the one-gallon
freezer bag. Fans are encouraged not to bring any bags, but the policy has been created to balance fan
needs with improved public safety and convenience.

Does this bag policy apply to credentialed individuals (e.g., media, staff)? There will be an exception
specifically for "credentialed" individuals who bring bags that do not meet the policy guidelines.
However, their bags will still be searched prior to entry, and only bags that pass the inspection will be
allowed into the venue.
