What is a Tent Tag?
All patrons camping onsite require a Tent Tag for their tent. Tent Tags are an optional add-on item which must be purchased in addition to a regular admission ticket. They are currently available only to 5-day and 4-day “staycation” ticket purchasers, who are invited to arrive on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, and to stay through Monday morning. Upon arrival, Tent Tag tickets will be exchanged for a weather-proof credential and zip-tie which must be affixed to the main opening of your tent or tent-like structure. Again, every single tent requires the purchase of a separate Tent Tag. There may not be multiple tents within the allotted 15’ x 15’ space. The only exception to this is pop-up tents which are erected directly over tents with existing Tent Tags.
Who can purchase a Tent Tag?
The Tent Tag ticket option is currently only available to 5-day, 4-day, and HighRoller admission ticket purchasers. Only (1) Tent Tag per ticket purchased.
What are the alternatives to onsite camping?
There offsite camping lots available to patrons for car campers and RVers. Please visit our Ticketing Page for more information.
What is considered an RV?
By our standards, an RV is a motor vehicle or trailer equipped with living space and amenities found in a home. Standard cars may not purchase a RV space and set up tents in the vicinity. You must have a “recreational vehicle” to purchase a RV parking ticket. The tow vehicle must fit within space provided.
What should I bring?
ALL Tent Tag purchasers (except for HighRollers, VDUBs, and Yurt Dwellers) will be shuttled to the festival site. This does mean humping your gear from your car to the shuttle, and then again to your camping site. Please pack accordingly! Still need a little help?… here’s a list.
What’s the low down for onsite camping?
*NEW IN 2014* Onsite camping is allowed only with a pre-purchased Tent Tag. Camping at FloydFest is primitive. This means NO electricity, running water, perfectly level campsites, etc. Portable toilets, hand-washing stations and potable water are convenient to camping areas. Also, 15 warm-water shower stalls are located on the hill en-route to the Global Village. No open fires are permitted. Propane and Camp stoves are allowed.
Can I save a space for a friend coming a day later?
NO. We have carefully measured and gridded our available onsite real estate, and sites are assigned on a first-come first-serve basis. If you are looking to camp together with friends as a group you will need to arrive together at the same time.
Where do I go if I forgot some gear?
No worries! The FF Camp Store will be fully-stocked with all camping essentials and the not-so-essentials!
What needs to happen to my campsite before I depart on Sunday?
If you pack it in, we kindly ask that you pack it out! The Green Team has reached high levels of recycling in the festival over the past few years. 2014 is the year to take the campground and offsite area recycling to the next level! Plan ahead now–here’s some tips:
- Join the Revolution—and Please Recycle! We hope all FloydFestivarians will recycle and compost—it’s easy! You can get supplies and information at the Green Team tent, located by the Klean Kanteen water station, mid-field. Bring recycling in a clear bag to any recycling station.
- Keep your food waste separate and bring to the specially marked bins or the compost pile in the Global Village.
What if I am just not a camper?
Our lively little town is loaded with lovely B and B’s, and hotels and motels as you extend into the wider world. Check our Lodging Page.
What is the policy on hammocks and Tent Tags?
In recognition of the minimalism of hammocks, hammocks may share space with a tagged tent within the 15′ x 15′ space allotment at no additional charge. However, if a 15′ x 15′ camping site is being shared by only hammocks, one hammock must purchase and prominently display a Tent Tag.
