This weekend Lobster Festival goers are in for some high-energy music for all types with country hit-maker Diamond Rio taking the stage on at 7:30 p.m. Friday, August 5, after an opening set by up-and-coming star Courtney Cole.

At 7:30 p.m. Saturday, August 6, the main stage ramps it up with Smash Mouth and special guest Kris Rogers and The Dirty Gems.

Smash Mouth fans worldwide will be treated to their most recognizable hit, “All Star,” as well as “Then The Morning Comes” and “Can’t Get Enough of You Baby,” which solidified the band’s double-platinum status. So put your dancing shoes on, because this is going to be a good time.

Before taking the stage at the Maine Lobster Festival, Smash Mouth will perform live on ABC’s Greatest Hits, Thursday, August 4.

Here are a few tips to ensure the most comfortable experience in a large crowd.

  1. Be prepared for Maine weather

In Maine, you never know if it’s going to be a scorcher or a downpour, and with scattered thunderstorms lurking on the horizon this weekend for the show, make sure you’ve got an umbrella or lightweight rain poncho tucked away. If it’s sunny when the show starts, make sure you are wearing sunscreen and bring additional bottles of water to stay hydrated after dancing. Cool off with a pocket misting spray for additional comfort.

  1. Have portable hygiene

Port-a-potties will be the only relief that the hundreds of festival goers will have during the duration of the show, but they don’t come with sinks and running water, so be sure to bring antiseptic wet wipes and hand sanitizer. 

  1. Bring a flashlight

One of the most beautiful things about a Maine sky at night is the lack of light from buildings. But with very little moonlight for the nights of the two shows, it’s easy to trip over large cables and other obstacles in the dark.
