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.

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.

CAMPGROUND INFORMATION

The Hog Farm Hangout offers both walk-in camping and car camping. Many of the walk-in campsites are nestled under our beautiful, shady oaks along 10-mile creek. If you plan to do walk-in camping, please plan to transport your gear from your car to your campsite. Walk-in camping is limited and first-come-first serve. Car camping is available in our flat, open meadow (limited shade) and is included in the $35 Vehicle Pass.

Camping spots are on a first-come-first-serve basis. Camping begins at 8:00 AM on Friday, and ends at 12:00 PM on Monday. Early arriving campers may not save spaces with their vehicles for late arrivals. To secure places for later arriving friends, early arrivals can pitch their friends tents or secure with extra gear (up to two spaces only). Please be courteous of your neighbors and other festival goers during the set-up process and refrain from tarping more than two spaces at a time.

There are no electrical hook-ups in the campgrounds. We do have a solar powered charging station for your devices. You can find this at the Sol Solutions Booth located near the security central booth and medical tent.

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.

Due to the extreme fire hazard in our area, absolutely no fires are allowed. We do offer a monitored community camp fire and jam down by the creek  each night.

Absolutely no open fires of any sort are allowed. The ONLY cooking flames allowed are propane stoves and ONLY if they are NOT on the ground and there is no dry grass within a 6 ft. radius around the stove.

Bicycles may be useful, however it will be crowded and the terrain has lots of bumps and gullies. Thin tires are not recommended. Most touring and mountain bikes should be fine. There is a bike rack near the security tent and food court. Bikes can also be locked along fences at the back of the main music meadow. Bikes are used and locked at your own risk.
