Clear Bag Policy

In 2020, the University of Idaho implemented a Clear Bag Policy. Policies vary depending on what event or venue you are attending on campus.

As a convenience, we have clear bags available for registered schools and attendees at Director Check In.

Expedited “pre check” lines will be provided for all attendees wearing their participant credentials. Signs will be present identifying these “pre check” lines at each entrance. These lines will allow you to enter the facility with your instrument(s) and bags associated with carrying those instruments without screening. Security reserves the right to search these bags at any time. All other bags carrying personal items not associated with your instruments will still be required to be held inside an authorized clear bag. Prohibited items will still be enforced. For a description of authorized clear bags and a list of prohibited items, please see the university's Clear Bag Policy.

Full enforcement of the clear bag policy will be implemented. No pre-check lines will be available. While instrument cases will be permitted, they will be searched. If you have not qualified to perform on the main stage in the evening concert, we strongly encourage you not to bring instruments into the venue with you. Doing so will significantly slow entrance into the facility. In addition, enforcement of all prohibited items will occur. Please remind your students that all outside food and drink will be confiscated upon entry.

FAQ

Online Registration for the 2022 festival is open through Sunday, Dec. 19, 2021.  

We understand that sometimes cutting a check takes time, and we want to work with you! Registration fees are based off of your registration DATE, not dependent upon when your payment is received.

Students will have a designated case room to store personal items during their performance time. However, we are unable to provide all-day storage. We encourage students to store belongings on the buses when at all possible.

Performance time for all ensembles, combos and soloists starts the moment they step onto the stage. Please allow a few moments for microphone adjustments as necessary.

Immediately check-in with the greeter at your site. From there, volunteers will direct you where you need to go.

The LHJF provides cymbals for use at every performance site as specified in the rules and regulations. All groups are required to use these cymbals. However, you may supplement if you require special effects type cymbals. Also, if the setup needs to be changed due to physical issues, such as a left-handed drummer, please note this on the performance forms provided at your site check-in. If your student needs to alter the setup, it is your responsibility to return the equipment to the original setup.
