Hi Spittoono friends. We are sad to announce that due to the increasing incidents of Covid-19 in the area, we have decided it is not responsible for us to hold Spittoono this year.
We appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing all of you next year!

***Important weather bulletin***
It is August in South Carolina and there is a 100% chance of a possibility of a 5 minute to 5 hour rain storm this weekend between the times of now until Monday!

***Even more important weather bulletin***
The staff and bands at Spittoono are hard headed and will keep playing until lightning is close or the rain makes for a tsunami! In the event of rain, we just get wet and open another cold one for charity!!

It is almost Spittoono time!!! Can’t wait to see everyone’ smiling faces starting at 6 pm tonight!

Thank you so much for the recent responses to our post asking for volunteers for the acoustic stage. I don't think that I have ever had that many requests at one time from artists that want to donate their time and performances to support our charities! Please see the pinned post for the schedule update that lists the all of the performers and the times that they will go on.

Everyone here at Spittoono would like to wish all of our faithful followers a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! As we started to ramp up planning for Spittoono ###IX (39), we started to talk about the ghosts of Spittoono past. In doing this, we realized that we have never posted pictures of the massive t-shirt collection that we possess. We currently have every shirt that we have ever produced, minus 1986, 1991, and 1992 (please post a picture of these if you have them.)

Please feel free to like, comment on, and share your favorite design. We would also love to hear about the years that you have been in attendance and some of your favorite stories from the Spittoono shenanigans that are always present, but remember to keep it as “PG” as possible! Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to another great show this year!!!

To Darby & the Peepshow, the Black River Rebels, The US band and their fans: I am extremely sorry that we were not able to keep you in the line up for this year's festival.

07/10/2018

Hello Spittoono faithful! This is your longtime emcee, Jeremiah Hurley (Yes, they asked me back to help out and I gladly accepted). As most of you already know, there are going to be quite a few minor changes this year. I am going to try to address one of these changes now.

Band schedule: This is a sore subject every time we try to do something a little different. You may have noticed that some of the bands that have played what seems like every Spittoono since the inception, ie The Deadly Crank Dogs, Stone Echo, Doug McCormick..., are not making an appearance this year. The reason behind this has nothing at all to do with any type of disrespect. I have nothing but the upmost respect for all of these performers and am personal friends with most of them. What our intention is in making this decision is to not only open the door for some new artists, but to also bring back some Spittoono favorites from the past like True Blues, The Drovers and LOZ. Ultimately, we would like to have our “staple” groups play every other year to keep some sort of variety while also paying homage to our past. I have been helping with Spittoono in some sort or fashion since I was 12 years old ( this is #26 for me) and I have seen the schedule change many times. Most of the time, bands were just forgotten about and I am trying to make sure that doesn’t happen while still keeping Spittoono “fresh”.

Something new that we are trying is that there will be a second “acoustic type” stage set up beside the beer tent. We are doing this to try to give some of our new or lesser known performers a chance to play for you as well. This will hopefully host two solo or small set groups a night and will play in between the main stage sets.

Due to a miscommunication error, the original schedule that was posted for this year was overbooked by a few bands. Please stay tuned for the updated bands and times.

As in life, there is always change. I hope that all of you continue to support our charities and our local music scene with us this year at Spittoono! Please remember that all of our bands and all of our staff put on this free music festival for the community without any compensation. So please come party with us and let us entertain y’all!!!

General information

Here some information to keep in mind from the Senior Rednecks: - No personal coolers or drinks are permitted. If you want to bring them, too bad. We aim to support our charitable groups and if you don't want to help - don't come. We'll boot your ass out if you try and sneak it in. We are very passionate about why we host Spittoono each year - to help those that are less fortunate. - Though the little ones are invited to come with, its best to send the little ones home once the sun goes down - or tie them down somewhere you won't forget about them. - The event runs Thursday and Friday nights from 6PM-12AM(ish), and Saturday from 4PM-2AM. Check the band schedule for exact times, we shut down at 2AM Sunday morning - no encores. - Regrettably, starting in 2018, certified service animals are the only pets allowed on the premises during the festival. - Handicapped parking is available, but be advised, this is an outdoor event and the terrain can be difficult. Put your off-road tires on your jazzy chairs please, and attach the winch too.

Opening Hours

Thursday 5:30pm - 12:30am
Friday 5:30pm - 2am
Saturday 3:30pm - 2am

Products

We're pretty sure there are several kids walking around Clemson today that are a direct result of Mom and Dad's indulgence at Spittoono. Be proud!

I really wish y'all would sell T-shirts online...I was at the 1st one in 1981!
2018 line up?
This is Joey Gunter of the True Blues and I just want to thank everyone. The organizers were great to us. The sound crew did a wonderful job. The crowd was absolutely fantastic! We had one of the best shows we've ever had! We've had the honor of playing Spittoono for many, many years and we really appreciate it. Spittoono has been great to us and we were heartbroken at the idea that it was over. Now we're elated that a new group of folks are going to take over! Continuously, relentlessly, and doggedly redneck! Hope to play again next year! Thank you all!!!
Great charity organization. I need to buy a Spittoono ###VII shirt! C'mon guys, take orders for some!
I know this is the very last minute, but if anyone is interested in buying any vintage Spittoono tees, I have about nine. The earliest one goes back to Spittoono XIII. Most are medium but two or three are large. They have never been worn. I hope it's okay to post this; I'm selling them b/c I have what amounts to an animal sanctuary, and any money I make from this will go to caring for my animals. If anyone is interested, please let me know. I should have thought about this sooner. BTW, I was at the very first Spittoono and nearly everyone since then until recent years.
Loved the first night of Spittoono. The Trevor Hewitt Band stole the show. Looking forward to Friday night. Hoping for a large crowd for Friday.
Rock On!
