Campgrounds are the areas where you camp and can only access with a Weekend or VIP Camping Pass. Concert Areas and Net Assembly are where the stages are and are accessible by anyone with the appropriate Day Ticket or Weekend Camping Pass. Festival Grounds is everywhere! While you may bring outside food and beverage into the Campgrounds, you may not bring any outside food or beverages into the designated Concert Areas. Things that are prohibited on the Festival Grounds, are not allowed anywhere! (see Water rules for exceptions)
You are welcome to leave site as you wish to get more supplies. (On foot is a great choice, we also recommend local taxi-cabs, as leaving and reentering via car is strongly discouraged).
However, please keep in mind, we do not allow outside food, coolers or alcohol of any kind into the general attendee/concert area, this is only permitted in the camping areas. Once you are done with your excursion, if you are camping on the East Side of the festival please enter at North Grove Box office, near the Arches, and go directly into the campground with your cooler or alcohol. Likewise, if you are camping on the West Side, you have to enter on the West. You may either return to the Arches and take a shuttle over or have your taxi-cab driver drop you off at the Mid-West Camping Entrance.
Don’t forget to leave your wristband on! You will not be allowed back in with a wristband that has been removed, cut, etc.
For everyone’s safety we cannot allow open-pit campfires, tiki torches or chinese lanterns. You may, however, bring charcoal and/or propane grills and stoves to cook on. They must be accompanied by a fire extinguisher that is valid for 2013. Please see grilling question above.
Both charcoal and propane grills are permitted. All propane cylinders must be sized 20 pounds (5 gallons) or less and must be certified. All propane cylinders must be re-certified 12 years after manufacture date and every 5 years thereafter (see you local propane dealer for more details). Any grill or stove must be accompanied by a fire extinguisher that is valid for 2013.
Everyone must leave on Sunday evening, after the Main Stage music ends. Sadly, there are no exceptions.
Sure! If you want to camp with your friends, you must caravan to the show and drive in together.
As much as possible we will try to camp everyone next to their car, space and weather permitting

Now that you’re doing Print-At-Home Tickets, I don’t have a souvenir ticket stub. How can I get one?
We are aware that many of you collect your show tickets. Now that we have moved to Print-At-Home Tickets, do not despair! We have commemorative tickets available at the Vibes Merch Tent. Just pop over to the big white tent, at the entrance to the main concert field, and ask for your commemorative ticket. Please, one ticket per wristband. That way we will have enough for everyone.
Each print-at-home ticket has a unique bar code. When you get to the gate at Vibes, your bar code will be scanned and then no one else can use it. If you purchase a ticket from someone, please make sure it is someone you know and trust. If someone sells you a copy of a ticket and there is more than one copy, whichever copy of that ticket is through the gate first is the only valid ticket. If you get to the gate and your bar code has already...

We are sorry, but specific spaces may not be reserved ahead of time even if you have additional...
Keep an eye out for an e-mail with RV directions. This will be sent to you when we get closer to the show. Many of the roads to get to Seaside Park have low-lying bridges which make RV travel difficult. Please make sure to print the directions out and take them with you before you get on the road!
If the combined length of your car (or truck) plus the length of the trailer are under 25 feet long, you do not need an RV Pass. We do NOT count the trailer only. We measure combined length beginning from your vehicle’s front bumper to the very back of the trailer. Related FAQs [related_posts]
