Festival Specific Policies

Stay Hydrated!
It is important to stay hydrated and drink water! In addition to bottled water available for purchase (both inside the venue and camping areas), there will be a couple free water stations in the event grounds. Please bring a CLEAR, EMPTY re-usable water bottle up to one liter in size, or an EMPTY Camelback to fill up and stay hydrated inside the venue. We also allow ONE, factory sealed 20-oz. water bottle per person into the venue. See the map below for water filling locations in the Midway.

There will also be water filling stations located in Lot 2 near the camping bathrooms and at the Well House across from the VIP West lot.

Re-Entry to the Venue
There will be NO same-day Re-Entry to the venue between when doors open at 4:00 PM and 11:00 PM. Please remember to bring everything you need from your car or your campsite.

The Midway/Coca-Cola Courtyard will be open for extended food & beverage service with unlimited re-entry during the following "Free Pass" times:

Friday AND Saturday from 11:00 PM - 2:00 AM Lakeside Pizza, Rubbin' Butts and Fry Guy will be open with full menus.

Absolutely NO bags are allowed in the Midway upon re-entry during these "Free Pass" times.

Our current bag policy will be in place for this festival. This means no bags larger than a small 5.5" x 8.5" clutch, with the exception of CLEAR totes no larger than 12" x 6" x 12" can be brought into the venue.

The only exceptions to this policy for this festival are an EMPTY Camelback, and a fanny pack which like all other bags, will be searched upon entry to the venue. This bag policy does NOT apply to our parking lot or camping areas. Larger bags are allowed in the camping and parking areas.

If you have a two-day pass, you will need your ticket for entry to the venue on BOTH DAYS, so do not throw it away after it is scanned on the first day. If at any point over the two days you lose your ticket, we CANNOT re-print it for you. We encourage you to save your ticket on your phone.

Camping Policies

For the comfort of all campers, we have a limited camping capacity so we encourage everyone to buy camping in advance. Camping is sold by site - each site holds up to four people with a tent, no larger than 10x10 feet. Each camping pass includes parking for one vehicle. Your vehicle will be parked in one area and your tent will be in another. All tents will be together, away from any vehicles.

Please do not bring anything that you know is not permitted or anything that could possibly be construed as a weapon (baseball bats, sharp tools, large knives, hatchets, hammers, etc.). Not only does it put an unnecessary strain on our staff and resources, but it also holds up the line for everybody behind you.

We encourage you to arrive as early as you can after camping opens. Please remember that getting everyone in is a pretty monumental task, so let's work together for the good of the whole and do what we each can to make the process go as smoothly as possible.

Leaving a pet in an unattended vehicle, even with the windows open, will not be permitted.

Professional Camera or Video Equipment
Vending of any kind

We have at least one recycling and trash bin in each camping location. Clean up your campsite daily rather than all at once or the bins will become overfilled and our staff overwhelmed. If you have any questions please ask a staff member. Thanks for your help!
