Can I come on site and sell stuff?
No, only approved and licensed vendors are allowed inside the Festival. If you want to find out about availability email us at info@fasterhorsesFestival.com.
Is there any public transportation to the Festival?
I don't want to camp – can I park for the day?
Yes you can. Day parking is available in the ‘day only’ parking lot. Day parking passes are $10/per car and are purchased as you enter.
Do I have to pay to park?
Yes, see the answer above.
TicketingNOTE: Children age 10 and under get in free. They do not need a ticket.
I bought the 3-day ticket and only received one ticket, how does it get me in all three days?
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.
What happens if I lose or break my wristband?
Don't lose or break it. Wristbands that have been tampered with or removed will be voided. Lost wristbands cannot be replaced.
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.
My tickets will be at will call – where is that?
Will Call is at the Box Office located next to the main entrance.
Can I use my credit cards to buy tickets at the box office?
If tickets are still available we will gladly accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
I saw someone selling print at home tickets on craigslist – are they legit?
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.
Do you sell alcohol?
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, vegetarian options also.
Can I bring my own food and drink?
You can bring through the gate one 20oz factory sealed bottle of water and a small (1 gallon) clear bag of snacks.
So is that a "No" to bringing in a cooler then?
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 in?
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.
Do you have ATM's?
Yes we do
Is there a first aid station?
Yes, ask any member of staff and they will point you in the right direction.
Do you have drinking water fountains?
Yes, drinkable water is available for you.
Can I buy 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 or a coat check?
Are camping prices per-day or for a weekend pass?
All camping prices listed are for a weekend pass, good from when the campground opens on Wednesday, July 17th to when the campground closes on Monday, July 22nd.
What time does the campground open?
The campground will open at 10:00am on Wednesday, July 17th. and all patrons must leave the campground by noon on Monday, July 22nd.
Are there showers?
There are showers available in certain campgrounds. Please see the camping amenities chart for more information.
Can I use a generator at my campsite?
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.
Is alcohol allowed?
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.
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 ticket for the show?
Yes you can. You do not need a ticket for the concert in order to enter the campgrounds.
What should I bring with me?
Is there a store in the campground?
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.
How many people can fit on a site?
As many people as you can legally fit into your vehicle.
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. 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.
What do I do with my car if I plan to stay with friends who are camping?
You must purchase an overnight parking pass. Overnight parking passes are $30 and are available at the Security Trailer.
