Revamped Vandyville: The game day experience begins long before fans take their seats inside the stadium. We’ve added live music and food trucks to the Vandyville experience. Located outside the stadium along Natchez Trace, Vandyville will feature close to 90 tailgating tents, food trucks and up to three stages of live music as only Nashville can provide it.
Puckett’s Stage: Located on Dudley Court, just off Natchez Trace, Vandyville’s main stage will feature live music beginning two hours prior to kick off. Here you’ll also find food trucks, common seating and a videoboard to catch key college football action.
Black and Gold Stage: Located at the corner of Natchez Trace and Jess Neely Drive, this stage will feature live music as you make your way to Star Walk, the stadium gates, or in between tailgates.
Singer-Songwriter Stage: No place has more rising talent than Nashville, and fans will hear up and coming artists and familiar local favorites for up to two hours prior to kickoff. Find it on Natchez Trace between the Max Nance Kids’ Zone and Children’s Way.
Pregame Tailgate Radio Show: hosted by Kevin Ingram and Norman Jordan near Gate 2 of Vanderbilt Stadium.
Star Walk path: Due to popular demand, this game day tradition is expanding in 2021. The team will exit the practice field gates and proceed onto Natchez Trace approximately one hour prior to kickoff. They will turn down Jess Neely Drive and into the tunnel entrance. This adjustment will allow more fans to participate and send the team into the stadium with even louder and prouder support. This expansion also replaces the event previously known as Dore Alley.
New home for Kids’ Zone: The Max Nance Kids’ Zone is moving to Vanderbilt’s outdoor track and field complex, conveniently located off Natchez Trace. Entry and all activities remain free. Kids can play on the inflatables, have their faces painted, play games, make arts and crafts, enter to win prizes and more. Fans will enter and exit the facility via the rolling gate on Natchez Trace. The Kids Zone closes at kick off.
Spirit tailgate visits: The band and spirit squads will move throughout Vandyville leading up to kick off, playing pop-up performances throughout the lots. Locations where fans can find them include Puckett’s Stage, Children’s Way, Kids’ Zone and Star Walk.
