Your ID

Remember to bring your ID, we check everyone's at the gate. We won't let you in if you don't have it or if you're under 21.


Most of our vendors won't have access to the internet during the festival, so cash is the way to go. It makes it easier for everyone.

A good attitude

We're all here to have fun and enjoy ourselves, the music, the food and the beer.

So be cool.
