The Truman Waterfront Amphitheater at 21 Quay Road hosts all the evening shows during the Festival.

Daytime VIP parties and other shows are at various pools, piers, bars, and hotels around Key West!

The Amphitheater is an open-air venue with no assigned seating for this event.  We do provide chairs which you can “pick and place” or you can bring your own chair (no solid metal chairs or couches.)  All "pick and place" seats are first come first served.

There is also an option to rent a COMFORTABLE CHAIR to be picked up and left each day at the Amphitheater.  **CHAIR RENTAL IS INCLUDED IN EMERALD PACKAGES.  OTHER PACKAGE GUESTS CAN GET EARLY BIRD PRICING ON CHAIR RENTAL**

The Venue is "open air" and divided into three main areas:

DIAMOND & DIAMOND PREMIER:  Your chalet and private bar are ready for the party! Under the tent, enjoy large chairs and tables for your use. The Diamond area is close to the stage  and has plenty of additional open space for chairs.  Near the Diamond Tent is our hospitality tent where you’ll enjoy your daily catered meal.  There are also designated, air-conditioned bathrooms in the Diamond area.

SAPPHIRE & SAPPHIRE PREMIER:  This large, prime spot near the stage also has a chalet tent and private bar to supply you with your favorite spirits.  There are also tables and chairs inside the tent for your use.  "Pick and place" chairs are first come, first serve - OR YOU CAN RENT A SOFT CHAIR. You may also bring your own chairs into this area. 

EMERALD AND PEARL:  The General Admission area is the largest area.  We do provide limited “pick and place” chairs or you can bring your own (no solid metal or couches).  Rental chairs are included with Emerald Package, and other package guests can get an early bird price on venue chair rental.  Two large main bars service this area, and there are many food and merchandise vendors. Diamond and Sapphire Guests can also enjoy the GA Area of the Venue.

Yes! We have a new chair rental program! The rental chairs will be light weight, soft, fold-up 'bag chairs' - much more comfortable than the pick-and-place chairs and easier to move.  AND you don't have to carry your own bag chair to and from the venue - we've got you covered.  

Chair rental will be available at the amphitheater by the day.  We have included it in Emerald Packages, and other package guests can get Early Bird Pricing on Venue Chair Rentals.
