Tips on What to Bring if You're Camping
If you're going to be camping at the festival you probably already have a good idea of what to bring, but just in case here are a few reminders . . .
- Chairs for the camp site and the concert area - preferably low back so as not to block the view of those behind you
- Sunscreen - while we do have a covered seating area there is still plenty of good ole Virginia sunshine up on the mountain!
- Layers of clothing for warm days and cool nights
- Sweater / Jacket - once the sun goes down it can get a little cool
- Umbrella / Rain Gear - we have been known to get a small shower every now and then
- Insect Repellant
- Wet wipes for the little ones (and sometimes the big ones)
- Bottled Water
- Canopies / Tarps
- Fire Pit (we do allow fires in the camping areas but must be off of the ground)
- Ear plugs (you may want to sleep in one morning . . . or hit the sack early)
- Instruments - we have been known to have a few impromptu concerts going on in the campgrounds!

We want everyone that comes to our festival to have a great time, enjoy the music and make some great lifelong friends. To this end, we have the following on the festival grounds:
