ORLANDO, Fla. – The power couple of a generation, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, will be in Orlando Wednesday playing at the Camping World Stadium. To make sure parking and security aren't among your 99 problems, we've compiled a list of important things to know before you head to the concert.
The parking lot and box office at Camping World Stadium opens at 4 p.m. Concertgoers who need to pick up tickets should expect a line.
Gates to the venue open at 6 p.m., but if you are part of Club Carter, VIP entry opens at 4:45 p.m.
Before the show, a Fan Fest is happening at Tinker Field next to the stadium beginning at 4 p.m.
DJ Khaled and Chloe X Halle are the opening acts. Orlando’s own DJ Nasty will play alongside Miami resident DJ Khaled. Chloe X Halle are expected to start performing at 7:30 p.m. Jay-Z and Beyoncé are expected to begin performing at 8:30 p.m.
There is a long list of items not permitted inside the stadium, including selfie sticks and drones. Despite the rain predicted Wednesday, umbrella's are not allowed in either. Ponchos are making a come back though.
Leave the bags at home, but if you bring one it must be smaller than 14 inches by 14 inches by 6 inches.
Beyoncé may have hot sauce in her bag, but you should leave your bag (and hot sauce) at home. Doing so will make Camping World Stadium security lines quicker and ensure your night is Flawless. #OTR2 pic.twitter.com/b5SRCtiRXg— CampingWorldStadium (@CWStadium) August 29, 2018
