WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE CAMPING SITUATION?

FAMILY FRIENDLY?

  • 12 & Under – Free admission – must have paid supervising adult
  • 15 & Under – require paid supervising adult
  • There will be a curfew of 10 pm for 12 & U from the main liquor license area (must be in camping area with supervising adult – plan accordingly).

    • Activities included: Water play area, bouncy castles, Outdoor movie theatre (7 p.m.), workshops (family acro, kids yoga, hula).
  • Shady Acres Area – Must be 19 + to enter.  As well as the After Party
  • Zero tolerance for underage drinking or substance use or the supply of alcohol to any minor.  Participants will be banned indefinitely and dealt with according to the BC laws.
  • Minors subject to bag check and bottle check.  Security on site 24 hours.
  • Family camping – will not be separated fully from other camping.  Current phase of camping development still has it sitting relatively close to the Main event area – this means that even though 11 p.m. generators off and quiet time in camping area – sound will still be audible from the main event area until the liquor license and main stage closes (2 a.m.) plan for proper sound proof methods (earplugs!).
  • Please remember that this is a music festival, music will be loud.  Remember proper ear protection for your child/yourself.  We will also not be able to fully sensor what is said/sung on stage.  We have tied to lessen this on the young ones by providing curfew and tailoring our lineup schedule to this curfew.
  • Please refer to festival rules & regulations also for more general information

IS THERE FOOD ON SITE?

  • We will have a variety of Food options on site to appeal to a your taste buds.  This includes savory meals to cold treats!
