Trash in Campgrounds
LIB is a “Leave it better, Leave it Beautiful” event. That means that you take your trash out with you and help us leave the venue better than when you arrived. This isn’t the kind of festival where you trash the place and rely on festival staff to pick it up for you. LIB tries to create awareness and encourage people to take care of the communities that they live in and the planet they live on.
The best way to do this is to plan ahead and bring as little trash as possible. Last year there was way too much trash left in the campgrounds after the festival. Our team works tirelessly to create something magical for everyone and at the end of it we are stuck cleaning up your trash. We create a community together and we set ourselves apart by working with you and not for you. We all have to take responsibility for ourselves and our community which means learning and living by our “Leave it Better, Leave it Beautiful” policy.
There will be showers in the campgrounds for a fee. Bring a towel and some biodegradable soap.
This year campfires will be allowed in designated areas. Some of the camping areas have existing fire pits and only in those pits can we allow fires. If you do not have an existing fire pit the can be ABSOLUTELY NO OPEN FIRES.
If you are unsure about whether you can have a fire please ask a campground manager or Ranger before starting one.
Cooking and Grilling
Enclosed propane grills are acceptable in the camping areas but NO open flame or charcoal grills will be allowed.
All full weekend and two day passes include camping to the festival. What this means is that you will park your car in the general parking lot and walk or use the gear shuttle to get to the campgrounds.
Car Camping / RV Camping
If you purchased a car camping pass that means that you have the ability to bring your car into the campgrounds and have it with you at your camp. There is not a separate area for people with car camping passes.
RV passes allow you to park at the RV Hookups that are on site. The RVs will not be stacked next to each other the way they were in previous LIBs but more like a traditional campground. RV placers will direct you to your site when you arrive and they will try and work with you to enable you to be near other friends in RVs whenever possible. They will also reach out via email to provide more info on what can be expected upon arrival. There is additional space around the RV spots so additional tents and even car camping passes can join you. This is not guaranteed but the space is there so try and arrive together or message your friends to let them know where you are.
*PLEASE NOTE: The actual car/rv pass will be given to you at the box office when you check in. If you arrive to the festival site without a pass for your RV or car you will not be permitted to enter the festival camping area.
All of the campgrounds will be named so you can coordinate with your friends to find out where you want to camp. There is cell service at this venue so meeting up shouldn’t be too difficult. We will put a detailed map on our website prior to the festival so you will be able to coordinate with your friends and plan ahead.
There will be family camping at LIB. Email email@example.com to let us know you intend to camp in family camp and how many people are in your family so we can be prepared. In your email, include info about whether you have a car or RV camping pass so we can accommodate enough space.
The campgrounds will have hosts to assist you and to help make sure you are camping in the appropriate areas as well as answer questions that arise during your LIB experience. They will be stationed throughout the campgrounds which will be indicated on the festival map.
In the event that you need security, medical or law enforcement the hosts at these stations can help you.
