AWARE team members can be identified by their signature “Here to Help” purple shirts. They can be found throughout the festival campgrounds, entrance areas, parking lots, and at their home base, AWARE CARE, which is our dedicated safe space.

We have 3 different checkpoints around the festival site:

  • You will go through a checkpoint before entering the campgrounds.
  • Security will be conducting brief vehicle searches for weapons at each checkpoint, this is to ensure the safety of all of our fans at the festival.
  • Please be ready to show your festival wristbands &/or camping passes.

All camping prices listed are per campsite (not per person) and good for the whole weekend. Limit of 8 people per campsite (excludes Glamping where the limits vary from 2-4 people).

Our policy is that you may only have 1 steering wheel per campsite (whether that be your car or camping unit). If your camping unit has a steering wheel, you will need to purchase an overnight parking pass for your extra car. If your camping unit does not have a steering wheel, you may park your car on your campsite.

Campgrounds will open Thursday, July 13 at 9am and remain open 24/7 until Monday, July 17 at 12pm. Once campgrounds are open fans are welcome to check in any time they would like.

This year’s theme is TBA.

Faster Horses Festival is about community and as we continue to encourage our fans to be kind to each other, we strongly urge everyone to participate in our buddy system. It’s important that fans look out for one another, always have a buddy with you If you need assistance or have questions over festival weekend:

1. You must have a Faster Horses festival wristband for access to the campgrounds. You can purchase your passes here.

2. Sites are sold on reserved basis.

3. Limit of one steering wheel per campsite, and all camping units must be at least 4′ from all other camping units.

4. Resale of passes is prohibited.

5. Transferring passes is prohibited.

6. Passes must be displayed at all times.

7. Fires must be 10 feet from any vehicle or structure, contained, and you must have a fire ring.

8. Tent and awning stakes must be marked.

9. Severe Weather: Live Nation and the Michigan International Speedway are focused on the safety of its patrons, employees and service partners. As such, we may have to shut down festival transportation (buses, trams and golf carts) during periods of severe weather. Please plan accordingly to give yourself enough time to get to a safe place in the case of severe weather.

10. Generators: When utilizing a generator, please be considerate of your neighbors and operate your generator safely. Remember to read your owner’s manual, and always double check that both your carbon monoxide and fire detectors are functioning properly before you camp! Your generator should be outdoors, far from any structure and properly grounded. When operating your generator, plug equipment directly into the generator, and DO NOT plug the generator into a wall outlet. Between uses, give your generator time to cool off before refueling. Please “pipe up” internal generators reducing noise and diverting exhaust fumes above the RV and away from your neighbor’s camping area. For free-standing generators, a “muffle box” can reduce noise and direct exhaust away from fellow campers. All generators are the sole responsibility of their owners. Carbon monoxide detectors and fire detectors save lives. Don’t forget to pack one for your campsite and ensure they are working properly before you head to the campground!

11. Drink Responsibly while at Faster Horses Festival. Any under age drinking under 21 years of age is prohibited on festival property.

12. KEEP YOUR AREA CLEAN! Keep a trash receptacle in your camping area helps prevent accumulation, odors and helps create a pleasant camping environment. We offer curbside garbage pickup! Leave your trash-specific bags near the road by 10am Friday-Monday for collection.

13. Recycling Efforts: Faster Horses hopes to keep waste to a minimum and working with service organizations to ensure that as many beverage containers as possible are recycled. Please leave your recycle-specific bags in a separate pile near the road by 10am Friday-Monday for collection.

14. No Gray Water Dumping: State law prohibits the dumping of gray water. Dump stations are available in all FH campgrounds. Dumping of gray water is grounds for removal from property.

15. Overnight Parking: Overnight parking is very limited so it’s highly encouraged to buy in advance. Weekend overnight parking passes are $45 per car when purchased in advance and $90 per car if purchased on site. Note: ONLY vehicles with an “Overnight” parking pass can park in overnight parking areas. Standard vehicle/Day Parking Passes are not permitted.

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.

You must purchase an overnight parking pass and also have a festival wristband.

If you are planning to have a company bring your RV to Faster Horses and you have not filled out the RV Dropoff form, please reach out to us at info@FasterHorsesFestival.com.

Yes, you can go visit your friends at any time unless they are staying in Glamping.

You can bring a generator at your own risk to 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 and operate them safely. 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.

Yes for guests who are age 21+. No open containers or alcohol consumption will be allowed in the public areas or on the roads. Any drinking under 21 years of age is prohibited on festival property. Please drink responsibly.

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

If you’re looking to purchase ADA camping, please email ada@FasterHorsesFestival.com.

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

Yes, you can have both a camper and tent on the same campsite as long as it all fits within your camping space. The exceptions are Northwoods and Tent City which are tent only campgrounds. All camping units and tents must be 4′ apart from each other as well as your neighboring campgrounds. Tents are not permitted in APEX.

Our general rule is one steering-wheel per campsite (example: a self-driving camping unit or car). Any additional vehicles would need to have an Overnight parking pass. Buy your parking pass early and save! Prices will increase weekend of festival. For parking information, visit our Festival Pass or Camping page for the details and opportunity to purchase.

With cashless, your credit card is securely attached to your wrist. Please note that inside the venue, we do not accept cash. We will accept Cashless on your wristband, credit cards, debit cards, Apple/Google Pay. If you only have cash, we will have stations within the festival to help exchange the cash for prepaid cards to use. This does not apply to campgrounds which may include cash or non-cash transactions.

With cashless at Faster Horses, there is no need to load any money onto your wristband as you might have experienced at some other events. When you register for the cashless option on your wristband you will securely link your credit or debit card with the wristband. So when you pay for something with your wristband, it will be just like swiping your card at a store.

No. Even though you will swipe your wristband to pay for items, you still have to punch in your PIN number for a transaction to take place. As long as you don’t give out your PIN number, your wristband is safe and cannot be used for cashless purposes by anyone else.

Go to our Register Wristband page and enter your wristband number again. It’ll then ask you for the email you used when you registered…. enter that email address. Your account information will then appear and you may edit as needed.
