CAMPING FAQ & INFO

The camping experience is what really makes this festival! Awake every morning with Euphorians just like you. Share your experiences with friends, new and old, as you immerse yourself in festival life. Campers must show a festival wristband to enter the campground. One camping pass is required for each person camping. You can purchase a GA Festival Pass and Camping Package or buy them separately via the Camping Add-on.
Our campsite is tent-only camping; this means we do not allow cars! Parking is located a short walk from the festival grounds. And, this year we have partnered with the company Bellhops who will lend a helping hand lugging camping gear Friday, Sunday and early Monday!
