FUN FACTS

We have three stages of music with tons of entertainment throughout the weekend so you never miss a beat!

Yes! We offer a fun and safe environment for kids to connect and thrive in Kids-Landia, where we welcome children of all ages to enjoy a creative space filled with hands-on activities and engaging performances. Youth tickets are at a discounted price with kids 12 and under being free. We also offer a designated Family Camp area, a safe and quiet space inside the campgrounds for parents and children to camp together and connect with other families in the community. Please ask for Family Camp upon entering the campground. Note: no vehicles or RVs allowed in Family Camp. Vehicles will be parked adjacent to the camp. RVs will go in designated RV Camping.

There is a swimmable creek that runs along the festival grounds. Most years the creek is quite calm, offering deep pools which are perfect for cooling off on a hot day. Sometimes there is a weak current depending on how much rain we’ve had in previous months. The depth may change rapidly and children need constant supervision. PLEASE NOTE: Any body of water is potentially dangerous for young children or anyone who does not know how to swim! There is no lifeguard. Kids under 12 must be accompanied by an adult at the creek.

There is a “Clothing Required” area and a “Clothing Optional” area. If this matters to you, make sure to bring yourself and your kids to the correct area.

The weather can be unpredictable at this time of year at The Hog Farm. It may be hot, dusty and dry and or it could be cool and damp. Please come prepared for anything.

You can play music at your camp, but not so loud that it annoys your neighbors (no sound systems or live amplified music please). If noise from your campsite is bothering your neighbors, you’ll be asked to turn it down.

Most touring and mountain bikes should be fine. Bicycles are not allowed inside the main concert bowl. A bike rack will be available at the Meadowlands venue entrance for parking bikes. Bikes are used and locked at your own risk. We ask that bikes only be used to go to and from your camp and speeds remain low for safety and dust suppression.
