Pricing Information
2 Day Passes Are Only $55.

You’ll have the option to decide whether you’d like to stay in a hotel, or camp on site. Camping passes are  included in the ticket price, but there will be parking fees just like anywhere else. We want people to carpool so GO GREEN and grab some buddies to split the parking ticket. If you’d like to stay in a hotel, check out the spots in Murfreesboro, TN. If you’re a semi-broke student, or you’re just trying to save some dough, get a room with a couple friends and split the cost. You’ll probably have more fun (and stories to tell) that way.

Package DealsSome of you might want to bring your whole fraternity/sorority/church/softball-team/etc.

Group pricing is available for groups of 8 (EIGHT) or more. Email for more information.

Age Restrictions
Music In The Middle is an ALL AGES event. However, there are a few caveats.

If you’re under 16, you’ll need a parent or guardian with you. No exceptions. That friend you have who “totally looks like he/she” could be 30 is not gonna cut the mustard.

If you’re under 21, you can come party with us at Music In The Middle, but you won’t be allowed to set foot inside The Great American Craft Beer Tour area. (Like we said in the tab above, you’ll need to purchase a ticket to that separately.) Don’t even think about bringing a fake ID, because we’ll have some really high tech scanners using the latest in Harry Potter magic. If we scan a fake ID, it immediately turns into a wisp of smoke, and you have to leave the festival. So be cool and play by the rules, okay?

If you’re 21 or over, you’re in the clear. Duh.

If you’re 80 or older, we’ll give you a free ticket – because you’re probably the most badass old person ever if you’re still down to party with your grandkids (or great grandkids).

Other Stuff You Need To Know/FAQ
Here is a quick breakdown of stuff you’re probably asking yourself…


  • 1. You’re more than welcome to bring your own food with you. Many of you will be camping, so bring a cooler, a couple bags, whatever’s clever. You’ll be burning a ton of calories dancing, so you’ll probably work up an appetite.
  • 2. We’ll have food and beverage vendors on site, but they’ll be shutting down after midnight, so if you’re a late night snack kinda person, you’ll need to provide that for yourself.
  • 3. “What should I bring camping with me?” Anything that you like to bring camping. We’ll generally advise against really loud stereos and other stuff like that – but hey, maybe the people camping nearby will be totally cool with it?  We also encourage people to bring instruments. This is all about celebrating music so if you have something to show off, then come prepared and create your own show.
  • 5. Friday and Saturday will be full days, and Sunday will be a half day. That means you can camp Friday and Saturday night, but you’ll need to head home on Sunday afternoon. We will have a Yoga instructor early mornings on Saturday and Sunday so bring your stretchy pants and come get limber after all that crazy over excessive dancing!
What is Music In The Middle?
Find Woodbury on Google Maps
What is Earmilk? is one of our favorite music blogs, so we decided to partner with them on a festival. The feel of our festival is similar to what Earmilk offers; a diversity of music ranging from indie rock, EDM, hip hop, singer/songwriters, and many other genres. So we called our buddies at Earmilk, and we said, “Hey dudes, you wanna partner up and do a really awesome music festival with us?” Then they said, “Totally bro-fellas! That sounds totally sick! Let’s make it happen!” We fist-bumped in slow motion to seal the deal. It was the coolest thing you have ever seen.
What can I expect?
This is a festival for people who love cutting edge music. Our goal was to put together a lineup of bands, musicians, DJ’s etc – before they get super famous and we can’t afford to book them again. Some of the artists are on major labels, some are on independent labels, and some are like, “Record labels? We don’t need no stinkin’ record labels!”

You’ll probably know a lot of names on the lineup, and there will probably be a few names you don’t know. That’s the whole point: We want you to come to Music In The Middle to see the musicians you already love, and also discover new ones.
