For general camping, there is no way to determine where you will be camped until you get to Vibes.
We are truly sorry that you won’t be able to join us. Unfortunately, there are no refunds. The event is rain or shine. The purchaser and/or bearer of a ticket understands that he/she is purchasing this ticket to the festival and not a particular artist’s performance. The festival is outdoors and weather conditions will affect the performances of all entertainers and there is a possibility that a particular performer may not be able to perform due to weather conditions. Thus, the purchaser and/or bearer of the ticket understands, acknowledges and will not expect a refund for the purchase of the ticket for any talent cancellations for any reason. Talent line-up and schedule are subject to change at any time. In other words, there are no refunds. Closer to the event, visit our Facebook page and message board, you may have some luck selling your ticket there!
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
In order to camp even one night at Vibes, you must purchase a Weekend Camping Pass. Single-Day Tickets do not allow access to the campgrounds or the Late Night Stage.
You must buy the Weekend Camping Pass or a VIP Single-Day Ticket for access to the Late Night Stage. Single-Day Tickets and Bridgeport Resident Ticket holders do not have access to the Late Night Stage.

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 been...
