You can hide it under a bush, or you can rent a locker!! You can view information about locker rentals HERE.

CAN I RE-ENTER THE PARK THROUGHOUT THE DAY?

As a courtesy to our neighbors, re-entry is not permitted for GA passholders. A multi-day GA pass will allow you to enter the grounds once each day listed on the ticket.

CAN I BRING MY MEDICATION?

Yes, of course you can. If you have pre-existing medical conditions that need medication, special diets or extra awareness, please talk to the security personnel at the entrance. They’ll take you to the first aid tent and make sure your medications or other needs are taken care of or stored should they need refrigeration. Make sure to bring a doctor’s note and photo ID.

I HAVE A DISABILITY OR AM ATTENDING WITH A PERSON WITH A DISABILITY

Those with disabilities are welcome to attend. Attendees with disabilities should bring a note from their doctor to present to security and inform them of their needs at the gates upon entry, they will assist you in accessing the festival. We will not have seating available, so those with trouble walking or standing should use an all-terrain wheelchair and/or attend with someone who can help them navigate the vast festival grounds. Onsite, there are some paved pathways to use, ADA accessible toilets will be provided in all parts of the venue and ADA accessible ramps will be placed next to the Front of House structure at a couple of the main stages.

Prescription medications are allowed only in the original prescription bottle, any persons attempting to bring in prescription medication must have a government-issued photo identification card that matches the name printed on the prescription, and the pills in the bottle must match the description printed on the prescription.  Further, if a patron has mixed multiple pills in a single prescription container or if a person is attempting to enter with prescription pills in a non-prescription container, medical representatives should be involved to make the final determination about whether or not such pills are to be allowed in the venue.

I WANT TO GET A PRESS PASS

Press applications go online in our ‘contacts’ section from June 1st – August 1st. No one without an assignment from a legit outlet will be considered.
