Join us for Concerts on the Course following play at the John Deere Classic!


Once the final putt drops on both Saturday and Sunday* all day-specific ticketholders are invited to stay after play ends at the 18th green to hear live music from these incredible artists.

Learn more about ticket options here.

Here’s how it works:

In order to attend Saturday’s concert, you must have purchased a Saturday ticket or use your FLEX ticket on Saturday. Same goes for Sunday – only Sunday tickets and FLEX tickets used on Sunday will be permitted access to the course to see the Concert. Gates close daily at 4 PM. Please plan accordingly for parking & shuttles and arrive prior to that time in order to see the golf tournament, as well as the concert. Parking is first come, first served. The concerts will begin around 5:45 PM each evening.

There will be no reserved seating on the 18th green hillside. General spectating areas will be first come, first served. You are welcome to bring lawn chairs (no bags) or blankets to sit on but ask that all fans be courteous and share the space. Concession stand areas near the 18th green will remain open after play ends for fans to purchase food and drink before and during the concerts.

Re-Entry will not be allowed.

Things to know:

  1. Gates close daily at 4 PM, please arrive prior to 4 PM if you plan to stay for the concerts. PLUS, you’ll get to see the end of each round that way too!
  2. Have your tickets downloaded into your Apple Wallet or Google Pay app for the best experience at the Admissions gate.
  3. Bag Policy – do not bring bags larger than 6×6 inches OR 12×6 if they are clear/see through bags. CLICK HERE FOR FULL BAG POLICY INFO.
    1. We do not have a bag check and you’ll have to return the bags to your vehicles.
    2. View the Prohibited Items list and leave these items at home. You will not be permitted access to the course with these items.
  4. Please park in the lot that is designated on your ticket. More parking information here.
    1. If you park on the roads near the course, outside of marked parking lot areas, your car will be towed as it will be a danger to other drivers. 
  5. Shuttles will run continuously until everyone is off the course after each concert. It will be extremely important to remember where you parked and get on the correct shuttle. Tournament personnel and security will be at the bus loading area to help near #9 Fairway. Please note this is different than where you would normally load the buses to exit the course. Staff and Security will be on hand to help. There will be record crowds at these events, so please be patient as we do our best to get everyone off the course as quickly and safely as possible.
  6. Please drink responsibly while at the event and do not drink and drive afterwards.

*Concert days and times are subject to change and are weather PGA TOUR play permitting. Please pay close attention to John Deere Classic Social Media handles for the most timely updates. Sign up for text message alerts here for the most up-to-date information. The Green and the Fairway will be roped off and manned with security to ensure that the surface remains playable for the remainder of the tournament. Please do not try to enter roped off areas. Any fans who do so will be removed from the course by security – zero tolerance. No Re-entry, No Refunds.
