Our Suggestions for Enjoying the Festival:
Stay hydrated. It’s hard work having this much fun. We sell bottled water at the festival, but we also allow you to bring your own. You can bring factory-sealed drinking bottles of water.

Be prepared for weather. We encourage you to bring sunscreen, a sun hat, and sunglasses – the Texas sun can be strong, even in April. The Hill Country can also get cold at night, so bring a jacket or sweater for the evenings. It’s also a good idea to bring rain gear, just in case. Download our app for updates too.

Respect the campsite. Part of maintaining the friendly ambiance includes keeping the campsite in great shape. We ask that all campers take everything they bring in – and leave their campsites cleaner than when they arrived.
