It’s time to sign up for our 5th Annual
Embrace the Funk Fest!

This year’s Fest will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 12:00-5:00pm at Yazoo’s Embrace the Funk barrel house.
(1871 Elm Tree Drive, Nashville, TN 37210).

Your $50 ticket grants you entry and access to lots of funky beer, lots of funky food, and a funky good time waiting to be had by you all. As the parking lot at the Barrel House is VERY tiny, we encourage you to take a Lyft/Uber/cab/MTA/unicycle. If you must drive (make sure you don’t drink), please park somewhere else in the neighborhood, as our lot will not be available for FunkFest parking (except for a few handicapped spots).

If you are a coin-carrying citizen of the State of Funk, you have received a unique coupon code to reserve your individual spot without paying extra (as Funk Fest entry is included in your citizenship). If you are not able to attend and would like to transfer your ticket, please reserve your spot on here using your unique coupon code, then follow the instructions explained in the cancellation policy.


– Unlike previous years, you MUST bring a printed copy of your ticket(s). This can be the confirmation email or a printed screenshot of your confirmation, but MUST contain your Order ID number. 

– At check-in, you MUST have a valid, non-expired photo ID. Non-expired Driver’s License or non-expired Passport are preferred. You will not gain entry without a valid, non-expired photo ID…unless you can complete the Double Dare Physical Challenge in 15 seconds. JK, you still need ID.

– If you are a Citizen of the State of Funk, you MUST present your coin at check-in. You will not gain entry without your coin, even if you reserved a spot under your name & number. If you transfer your ticket to another individual, they must be in possession of the coin at the check-in table. The Shrine of the Silver Monkey will not be accepted.

– If you plan to be the designated driver, do NOT purchase a ticket here – contact us via e-mail or show up the day of and we will allow you entry free of charge. You will be given a specific wristband that MUST be worn the entirety of the fest. (Water and food will be provided free of charge.)


Funk Fest 2017


For an extra $15, you may purchase the exclusive #FunkFest17 t-shirt! When buying your ticket, you will be given the option to choose a t-shirt size for each ticket you purchase. We have shirts in Adult S-5XL and Youth XL (which is similar to an Adult XS). The shirts are ‘unisex’ and generally run true to size. Please note: The above image is an approximation of what they will look like, actual colors may vary slightly. Also note: While we will try our best to accommodate you, we may not be able to exchange shirt sizes at the festival, depending on demand for the shirts.

Enough talking… let’s have some beer!
