Interlochen Introduces New Security Measures For Concerts
By Beth Milligan | June 6, 2019
Interlochen Center for the Arts is rolling out new security measures for its concert series in 2019.
An Interlochen announcement this week advises concertgoers that there are new entrance gates to the concert venue where attendees will be screened prior to entry. No weapons of any kind will be allowed inside the venue, including "pocket knives of all sizes."
Interlochen also has a new bag policy. Clutches are allowed that are approximately the "size of a hand," no larger than 6.5x4.5 inches, and can include a strap. Clear plastic resealable bags are also allowed as long as they are no larger than one gallon, and clear totes are allowed if they are 12x12x6 inches or smaller. Items within the bag must be loose.
As in the past, no food or beverages are allowed inside the concert venue except for water in clear, sealed containers. Smoking or alcoholic beverages are also not permitted.
