Box Office / Gate Hours
Box office hours will be posted shortly.
Once You Arrive
-- If you did not have your RFID wristbands mailed to you you’ll need to pull into the on site Box Office upon arrival and pick up your wristbands at WILL CALL. (Follow street signs upon arrival to get to the box office) If one person in your vehicle doesn’t have a wristband on, the entire vehicle will need to go to the box office.
If EVERYONE in your vehicle has their RFID wristbands on you will pull straight into the main festival gate where our staff will scan your wristbands. Piece of cake, you are in!
Once your wristbands are scanned you will drive into the festival grounds and be directed towards the parking lots.
If you have a Car Camping or RV Pass you will be directing by signs to go to your campgrounds.
If you are going to general parking you will be directed by our staff. Here you can choose whether you want to park and walk to camp or park and take a shuttle to camp. More instructions on the shuttle system will be announced at a later date.
*Pro Tip – Pack your camping gear tight with no loose items. The shuttle system can get crazy at times so to ensure you don’t lose any items make sure they are all packed up tight and together.
*Pro Tip – Label your items to ensure that you don’t lose them. Even that extra pillow you grabbed at the last minute
*Pro Tip – Bring some wheels to help you trek your stuff on long distances.
Car Camping Passes
If you purchased a Car Camping pass this will be mailed to you when your festival wristband is sent to you. Simply follow the instructions and you’re good to go!
If you purchased a Car Camping pass and it does not arrive in the mail or if you have a pass at Will Call you will need to pick it up at the box office upon arrival.
*Pro Tip! If your group of friends has a Car Camping pass use it to fit as much gear and people as you can so you can all easily get to your campsite together.
*Pro Tip! Bring a wagon, dolly or some sort of sturdy wheels to help you transport your gear from the shuttle stops to your campsite.
Single occupant vehicles are charged $30 to park in the parking lot. Vehicles with one or more passengers (not including the driver) are granted free parking.
Please carpool! You’ll be able to avoid the $30 parking fee, and you’ll help us lower the event’s carbon impact. It’s important that as few cars as possible bring all your wonderful bodies to the festival.
