Ticketing

NOTE: Children age 10 and under get in free. They do not need a ticket.

When you get to the Festival you will need to exchange your 3-day ticket for a wristband. This wristband will gain you access to and from the Festival. You will only get one wristband, so take good care of it as we cannot replace lost wristbands for any reason.

Don’t lose or break it. Wristbands that have been tampered with or removed will be voided. Lost wristbands cannot be replaced.

No, your wristband needs to be on tight enough that it does not slide off.

Will Call is at the Box Office located next to the main entrance.

If tickets are still available we will gladly accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

Nope, there are no print at home options for this show. Be really careful buying anywhere except the official MusicToday website. We see far too many forgeries and bad tickets and they will not get you in to the Festival.

After you purchase your camping site, if you would prefer a different location, contact Music Today’s customer service team at 800-594-8499 or tix@musictoday.com

There are showers available in certain campgrounds. Please see the camping amenities chart for more information.

Yes. However, campsites are very close together, so we request that all Festival campers be considerate of their camping neighbors when utilizing a generator. To avoid excessive amounts of carbon monoxide and noise, please “pipe up” internal generators. This will allow the exhaust to be released above the RV and not into your neighbors camping area. If you are utilizing a free-standing generator, a “muffler box” would contain the noise and direct exhaust away from campers. Quiet generators are preferred by your fellow campers. Generators are the responsibility of their owners and should not interfere with surrounding campers. Ventilator kits preferred.

As long as you are of age, alcohol is permitted within the confines of your individual campsite, but no open containers or alcohol consumption will be allowed in the public areas or on the roads.

Reserved camping sites are sold online. If you want to be together, you must purchase camping together.

  • Your happy, smiley face ready to have some fun.

Yes there is. The store has a wide variety of soft drinks & snacks, ice, as well as some of those little necessities you may have forgotten, sunscreen, basic toiletries etc. The General Store is located on the Infield campground.

As many people as you can legally fit into your vehicle.

If you want to have a campfire you must bring your own fire ring.

No. do not bring any pet whatsoever, not because we don’t like them – we are all animal lovers here – but it is cruel and unfair to the pet to leave it alone in the campground or parking lot, locked up or in a car or tent where it may suffer from extreme heat. When we see a pet in a car or running around the camp ground unattended, we will alert the authorities and your vehicle may be entered and the pet taken to a shelter for its own welfare. You may be subject to prosecution for cruelty to animals. Service Animals are permitted however.

You must purchase an overnight parking pass. Overnight parking passes are $30 and are available at the Security Trailer.
