Beach Road Weekend, the three-day music festival that is expected to draw thousands to Vineyard Haven’s Veterans Memorial Park in August, has been a logistical Rube Goldberg invention. Among the organizational feats: sixty-one trucks will come to the Island, carrying with them countless speakers, furniture, and the equipment to build three stages. All those trucks will have to be parked on-Island in pre-planned, secure staging areas while they unload. Sixteen school buses are being rented from an off-Island company to shuttle festival goers to and from their parking spots at various still-unannounced locations. Six thousand feet of fencing and barricades will be brought over on the ferry in multiple trips.

“The list just scrolls and scrolls through the Steamship [Authority] site of all our reservations,” said event organizer Adam Epstein. “It’s crazy. It’s air traffic controlling.”

The festival will open August 9 with a screening of Jaws and live accompaniment from the Cape Symphony Orchestra. On Saturday, roots rock musician John Fogerty and the indie roots band Dispatch will headline the music. On Sunday, Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead and singer-songwriter Grace Potter will close out the weekend, with music wrapping up by 8:30 p.m.

Mr. Epstein said he expects 6,000 people to attend on Friday and 7,000 to 8,000 at Saturday’s and Sunday’s shows. His company, Innovation Arts and Entertainment, is paying the town for public safety services.

Tisbury fire chief John Schilling said public safety officials have been meeting regularly since last fall to come up with a safety plan. He said the group has included police, fire, EMS, and the parks department. He said they had contacted the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency to borrow extra equipment for the event, like emergency lighting and sign boards.

“Our people are all very enthusiastic about the details and participating in this,” the fire chief said. “I’ve had a lot of interest from firefighters and EMS about helping out with that weekend.”

Lagoon Pond Road and Causeway Road abutting the park will both be closed to through traffic. Shuttle service is planned to be routed through Skiff avenue to Lagoon Pond Road to avoid the snarls of the Five Corners intersection. A traffic officer will be stationed at Five Corners to facilitate traffic flow.

Tickets are available in a wide array of tiers and packages. Concert-goers can purchase one-day or three-day passes. Seating will be divided into a reserved VIP seating area, a reserved seating area, a reserved lawn area and a general admission lawn. Day passes start at $35 for Friday’s show and $75 for Friday’s and Saturday’s shows.

Tickets for front row seats are up to $500. Tickets purchased online come with a service fee of $15, Mr. Epstein said.

People on the Island or in Woods Hole can purchase discounted tickets at participating local merchants.

Large bags, chairs and coolers will be prohibited from the event. Vendors will be selling food on site.

The town has yet to officially permit the sale of alcohol at the event. At a meeting this week, Tisbury selectmen accepted a proposal from Mr. Epstein to sell alcohol with food at the festival. They set a public hearing to discuss the issue before issuing a license.

“We hope this can be worked out and can happen,” selectman and board chairman Melinda Loberg said.

Beach Road Weekend lands on the Vineyard August 9 to 11. A screening of Jaws with a live orchestra opens the festival on August 9; John Fogerty and Dispatch headline the Saturday shows, with Phil Lesh & Friends and Grace Potter topping Sunday’s lineup. For tickets and more information, visit
