You may camp in Family Camping but this does not guarantee it will be quiet! There will be very young children who most likely wake up early, babies crying at night, etc. It will be a different camping experience, but not necessarily “quiet.” If you want to sign up, please see the instructions above.
I will have children with me and would like to camp in a Family Friendly area. How can I reserve a spot?
Vibes prides itself on being one of the most family-friendly music fesitvals in the business. Please e-mail FamilyCamping@gatheringofthevibes.com with your request. We will be happy to accommodate you on a first-come-first-served basis. Please check out our “Kids and Families” page for info on all our great kids and teens activities!
For general camping, there is no way to determine where you will be camped until you get to Vibes.
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.
