All weekend tickets include camping (camping is not an option with single day tickets. Only people with weekend wristbands may camp on site).
If you purchased an Early Thursday ticket you can come before the masses arrive and set up on Friday. Please note that if you arrive on Thursday there will already be many volunteer and admin tents sent up. You may not get the exact spot you were hoping for but coming a day early does optimize your choices.
The Quiet Camping Zone has been designated for those needing silence between the hours of 11:00pm to 9:00am. Please note that we do our best to monitor this area and try and keep it quiet – it is a music festival and sometimes late night noise is out of our control.
Jam Zones (Glade Jam and Stump Jam) have been designated for those that want to jam into the wee hours.
The Family Camping Zone is encouraged for sole use by people with kids under 12.

Do’s and Don’ts
You must follow some basic neighborly rules otherwise you could be turned away or be asked to leave at anytime.
Absolutely no pets are allowed.
No Outside Alcohol (beer, wine, liquor, etc) will be allowed in the camping areas and venues at Pendarvis Farm. Vehicles will be checked upon entry and these items will be confiscated.

Within the main stage area blankets and low back chairs can only be left all weekend in designated areas. Other areas will be designated blanket free. If you do leave a blanket or chair in the main area it is assumed to be public space so that others can respectively use it while you are not there, and you can hopefully be neighborly when you return to figure out what is possible for continued sharing.
No portable shade structures will be allowed anywhere in the main venue bowl.
Please be reasonable with the footprint of your camp. No palaces please.
No fires of any kind (including candles), fireworks, or firearms allowed. You can use camp stoves, but please be very careful.
