What kind of ADA Accommodations will be available?

Within the Festival:
The festival grounds are wheel chair accessible but please be aware that this is a large venue with distance between the 2 stages and is an outdoor festival. Therefore, some travel will be over natural terrain. If it should rain, there will be mud in some places. We do not provide personal care. Please plan ahead and bring attendants if needed. In addition, the festival does not provide wheelchairs for rent or loan. Please make arrangements beforehand if you should need a wheelchair at the festival. Wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, and three/four-wheeled scooters are all permitted for Patrons with mobility disabilities. There is an ADA viewing platform with shade available in our Main Stage viewing area. This platform is reserved at all times for people with mobility impairments plus one companion. Please note this area has limited capacity and is available first come, first served.
ADA restrooms are also available throughout the venue. The Tack Room VIP Lounge area is accessible with a ramp.

A patron requiring insulin is allowed to bring his or her medically necessary materials and medications. Out of concern for the festival staff who handle the trash, please dispose of your medical waste and syringes in the proper disposal located in the First Aid area of the festival.

WRISTBANDS

What happens if I lose or break my wristband prior to the festival?

Don’t lose or break it. Wristbands that have been tampered with will be void and lost wristbands cannot be replaced for any reason.

Can I slide my wristband off and give it to my friend to use?

No, your wristband needs to be on tight enough that it does not slide off and is good for just you only.

Will I receive my camping pass along with my festival pass?

If you ordered it together, it will come in one package. If you ordered camping at a separate time, your tickets will come in a separate delivery.

I saw someone selling print at home tickets. Are they legit?

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

Are the passes good for all 3 days of the festival?

Yes! We don't sell single-day passes for Faster Horses.

CAMPING

Are camping prices per person or per campsite? Is it for the whole weekend?

All camping prices listed are per campsite (not per person) and good for the whole weekend.

Can I bring a golf cart with me?

No, due to safety reasons and traffic, we cannot allow golf carts in the campgrounds.

I'm staying at one campground and have friends staying a different campground. Can I go visit them?

Yes, you can go visit your friends at any time.

Can I use a generator at my campsite?

You can in any campground EXCEPT Tent City in Infield.

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.

Is alcohol allowed in the campgrounds?

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

I want to camp next to my friends. Can you reserve a spot?

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

Can I camp if I do not have a festival pass to Faster Horses?

No. Anyone planning to camp will also need to purchase a festival pass in order to enter the campgrounds.

Is there a convenience store available?

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, such as: sunscreen, basic toiletries, and the like. The General Store is located on the Infield campground.

How many people am I allowed to have at my campsite?

As many people that can comfortably fit on your campsite (with the exception of VIP).

Can I have a campfire?

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

Can I bring my dog?

No. Not because we don’t like them (we're all animal lovers here), but it's 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 your pet taken to a shelter for its own welfare. You may be subject to prosecution for cruelty to animals.

Service Animals are permitted.

What do I do with my car if I plan to stay with friends who are camping?

You must purchase an overnight parking pass and are good for the entire weekend of the festival.

How many tents can I have on my campsite?

As many as you wish as long as it all fits within your camping space.

Can I have a vehicle on my campsite and what is the parking policy in the campgrounds?

Our general rule is one steering-wheel per campsite (example: a self-driving camping unit or car). If you are camping and have an extra vehicle that needs to be parked for the weekend, parking is $30 for the weekend and is paid upon arrival when you check in to your campground. All overnight parking is first come, first served.

Venue

Do you sell alcohol at the festival?

Yes we do, make sure you have an approved, valid picture ID. Not sure if you have an acceptable form of ID – check your local or state government websites.

What kind of food is available?

We’ll have a great variety of standard and local specialty foods. Food on a stick, food in a bowl, food on a plate, and some vegetarian options as well.

Can I bring my own food and drink to the festival site?

You may bring in a small (gallon) clear bag of snacks and one 20oz full plastic water bottle per person or smaller. Must be in a clear, factory sealed bottle. In addition we will allow EMPTY water bottles, CamelBaks, etc., up to 1-liter or smaller, that can be filled at our free water stations inside the Festival Site. All containers will be subject to inspection at the Gates to the Festival Site.

So that is a no to bringing a cooler?

Correct, that would be a no.

I have small children, can I bring a stroller?

Yes you can, though the stroller will be subject to a search. You’d be surprised what people try and hide behind the kid!

Can I bring in my medical prescription such as Diabetic insulin?

You can, but please advise the security guard at the gate and they will call the medics who will assist you.

Why can't I bring an umbrella to the festival?

It pokes people’s eyes out and obscures the view of the person behind you.

What is the restroom situation?

Full disclosure, for the most part only port-a-johns are available.

Will you have ATMs?

Yes we will.

Is there a First-Aid station?

Yes, ask any member of staff and they will point you in the right direction.

Do you have free water available?

Yes, just bring an empty water bottle (up to 1-liter) and you can fill it up at one of our on-site water stations as needed.

Can I buy some sunscreen there?

You can find sunscreen and other little necessities at both the General Store at the campground and in the Festival store.

Do you have lockers available?

We sure do! To secure your locker rental, visit our "Buy Passes" page and make your reservation!
