We're still working hard in preparation for the 2020 festival, our 50th Anniversary, and we look forward to seeing you there!
We have food and merchandise vendors, new shower facilities, water and dump stations on the grounds. There is a free shuttle to the stage from the parking and camping areas.
Please do not bring alcohol or coolers in to the main concert area. Pets are allowed in the campground but must stay on a leash. PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE GATED CONCERT AREA.
Tickets are sold at gate only; no advance ticket sales. Weekend passes are $130. Daily ticket prices are: Wednesday $35; Thursday $35; Friday $40; Saturday $35. Kids 12 and under get in free. 20% discount for college students; must show valid college I.D.
We offer electrical hook-ups for campers as well as camping in the rough. Camping is included with paid admission. Campsites and electrical hook-ups are on a first come basis. Electric is $55 for the weekend. (If you arrive for camping prior to Wednesday the charge for electric will be $60 for the week / weekend.) Golf carts are welcome; no four wheelers.
