To access the VIP Parking lot, everyone in the vehicle must be wearing their VIP festival wristband. Attendees wearing GA wristbands will not be allowed to enter the VIP Parking area.

Camping Companion Parking

This parking pass is good for one extra car of people who are staying in your camping spot, but need to park their car overnight. Camping Companion Parking will be located adjacent to the campgrounds, but may not be located in close proximity to your camping spot.

A very limited amount of Camping Companion Parking passes are available. This pass is only available for purchase when buying your Car/Tent Camping pass. Campers will only be allowed to purchase one additional Camping Companion Parking pass per camping pass purchased, while supplies last. Once Camping Companion Parking passes are sold out, there will be no alternative on-site overnight parking options available.

  • If you already purchased a festival pass and camping pass, please contact Ticket Purchase Support to add a Camping Companion Parking pass to your existing order while supplies last.
