That time of the year is upon us again. For the fourth year in a row, JMBLYA is coming to Dallas this Friday to blast the bass and get you jumping. Easily the most popular festival of its kind in Dallas, everyone and their dog is going to be at the Coliseum Parking Lot at Fair Park (actually, pets are not allowed, unless they’re service dogs—click here to see other FAQs). Having seen the likes of Future, Post Malone, Rae Sremmurd, and Travis Scott in the past, JMBLYA will feature artists such as Migos, Gucci Mane, Lil Uzi Vert, Steve Aoki, and Chance the Rapper, who is headlining (click here for the full lineup). Obviously, it’s going to be a good time, but there’s some things you should know if you’re going.
Definitely bring an empty water bottle or Camelbak to fill up once you’re there. Bottled water is going to be expensive (at least $4 a bottle). Plus, who wants to lose their spot just to go spend more money on something they’re going to sweat out or pee out?
JMBLYA is an outdoor event, which means a lot of exposure to the Texas sun. You lucked out this year because it should only be about 78°F with a 0% chance for rain. In the past, it’s reached over 100°F, with people passing out on the concrete. This does not mean drink less water.
Parking starts at $10 and is going to be hard to come by. The easiest way to get to JMBLYA is to take the DART and get off at Fair Park, if that’s an option for you. A Day-Pass only costs $5, and you get the satisfaction of helping save the environment. Click here for more info on getting to JMBLYA.
I’d recommend at least $40 if you plan on buying food, water, and/or merch. Speaking of merch, you can pre-order merchandise here to pick up at JMBLYA, so you can skip the line and get what you want. Preorders close at 8 PM (Central) on Thursday.
Doors open at 12 PM, but you can show up any time. Re-entry is not allowed if you leave, so keep that in mind. See below for set times.
