Camping & Parking

  • DOES MY FESTIVAL PASS INCLUDE CAMPING

    Your festival pass will automatically include walk-in camping. You can also choose to upgrade to another camping option, such as Car Camping, RV/Trailer Camping, or any of the Boutique Camping offerings.

    Vehicle parking and vehicle camping is limited, therefore arriving WITHOUT a vehicle pass may result in NO availability.  In order to accomodate all vehicles BEFORE they arrive, we require a PRE-PURCHASED vehicle pass.  Every vehicle must have either a pre-purchased vehicle parking pass, carpool voucher OR camping pass before getting to the festival box office. Only one pass is needed per vehicle, not per person.  If you are planning on carpooling with 3+ in your car, you can purchase a carpool voucher to reserve your parking spot instead of a parking pass.

  • DO I NEED TO PURCHASE AN RV PASS IF I AM STAYING IN MY FRIEND‚ÄôS RV?

    Only the owner/driver of the RV will need to purchase the RV camping pass. Guests of the RV camping pass holder will only need a festival pass (i.e. OMG or General Admission).

  • ADA PARKING & CAMPING

    We will have ADA parking available in the closest section of general parking. You will need to purchase a General Parking Pass or Carpool Pass (if coming with 3+ people) if arriving with your vehicle. If you wish to car camp, then you will need to purchase a Car Camping Pass. It is highly recommended that you notify us in advance if you have a special needs situation, such as needing access to power, so we can plan accordingly and do our best to accommodate you. Please email ada@whatthefestival.com for more information.

    We retain the right of refusal as Oregon law does not recognize ‚Äútherapy dogs‚ÄĚ for special needs. Please be sure your hangtag or ADA plates are visible so our staff can guide you to the dedicated parking and/or camping area.

  • IF I PURCHASED A CARPOOL VOUCHER BUT DON‚ÄôT END UP SHOWING UP WITH 3+ PEOPLE IN MY CAR, WHAT DO I DO?

    If you purchased a Carpool Voucher on our website, but do not end up having 3+ people in your vehicle, you will need to pay the difference of $50 between the Carpool Voucher and the General Parking Pass at the Box Office when you check in.

  • IS RE-ENTRY ALLOWED IN AND OUT OF THE FESTIVAL?

    What The Festival provides a full immersion experience, with everything you need located onsite. There is a $40 security access fee to re-enter the event with your vehicle.  Please keep in mind, we can request a sobriety check if you wish to leave with your vehicle during the event and intoxication is suspected. 

  • CAN MY FRIENDS AND I CAMP TOGETHER?

    In order to ensure you and your friends can camp together, you will need to arrive together. All camping options are first come, first serve.

  • DOES EVERYONE IN THE TRAVELING VEHICLE NEED TO BUY A PARKING PASS?

    NO, only one parking pass is needed per vehicle. Everyone must have a weekend pass but only one camping/parking pass is needed for the group/vehicle. Please see the Tickets page for more information.

  • WHERE SHOULD I CAMP IF I WANT A MORE QUIET, PRIVATE EXPERIENCE?

    Walk-In Camping areas adjacent to our west end Parking are a short distance away from the action and will offer you the quietest camping experience. Both walk-in camping and car camping options are available there. Talk to our campground host onsite and he/she can point you in the right direction. These spaces are first come first serve. SEE MAP for more detail.

  • I'M RIDING MY MOTORCYCLE TO THE FESTIVAL. WHAT KIND OF PARKING SHOULD I BUY?

    If you are riding your motorcycle to the festival, please be sure to purchase a Carpool Voucher prior to arrival. Because of the minimal footprint of a motorcycle, we reduce your parking rate. Please do keep in mind, that you will need to drive through gravel and dirt roads to reach your parking space.

  • PARKING & TRAFFIC LOGISTICS

    Please follow ALL the instructions of our parking & traffic management staff on your way into the event as well as during the exodus. Please remain patient as you enter the property and also as you are guided off of the property.
