Guests are not allowed to leave their defined space for any reason other than emergency use or to use the restroom. If you leave the space, you’re required to wear a mask and maintain six-feet from all other guests. Guests who fail to follow the codes of conduct will be removed from the event with no refund.

Michael Santos, CEO for Rock n Concepts said they’ve been working with the city of Lubbock to make sure the festival is fun and safe for all to enjoy.

“'Hometown Heroes' was kind of drafted with the spacing, six feet, masks, requirements, temperature checks to enter, all of the requirements that are expected today of a restaurant, are being enforced here today in the field and across all three cities right now to ensure that safety is number one and that we’re keeping the space between everyone, but everyone’s able to come out and enjoy themselves with food beverage and a great music lineup,” said Santos.

Santos also says they’ll be honoring local hometown heroes at the concerts.

“(They’ll) identify one hero in the community that has gone above and beyond to really support the community through time,” said Santos.

Hometown Heroes will be using a new app - Roovy - to manage the ordering process of all concessions and merchandise.

There will be no lines – guests simply download the Roovy app, place their orders, type in their stall number, and their order will be delivered directly to them.

For concessions, each market will be supported by local restaurants that will be onsite. The entire festival will be cashless and contactless.

Have an unruly guest or emergency? Simply contact security via the Roovy app!

Guests can even use the app to purchase a ride on a golf cart to the restroom.
