TICKETS, ARRIVAL, CAMPING, AND THE FARM
How does camping and parking work on the farm? In addition to your festival pass, you must have a camping pass (this includes sleeping in your car) and/or parking pass, if applicable. To ensure enough parking space, day parking vehicles left over night will be towed at the owner's expense.
- This is a real farm so the campsites may be uneven and there is no electricity or running water.
- Quieter camping that is closer to venue, water stations, vendors, and port-a-johns is Premiere or Family Camping. Each person must have an individual ticket.
When can we arrive early? Is there early entry? Campers are free to arrive any time after 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 29. The gates close at 10:00 p.m. that night. If you haven’t made it through the gates by 10:00 p.m., you will be sitting in your car, unable to enter the campsites until 8:00 a.m. Friday morning.
What is it like when we arrive? Will my vehicle be searched? You are entering private property to attend the FarmJam Music & Camping Festival. All vehicles that enter the property may be searched for items that are not allowed on property such as weapons, fireworks, and other non-permitted items.
If I’m camping, can I leave and come back? We ask that attendees try to bring with them all the supplies they need to stay for the duration of the festival. However, everybody is allowed to leave and return as often as they want.
Can I stay off-site and come back everyday if I’m not camping? You may stay off-site and come back to the event grounds daily, as long as you have your wristband. Do not remove your wristband. Wristbands must be on your wrist at all times and can not be removed during the festival.
