Our Suggestions for Enjoying the Festival:

Stay hydrated. It’s hard work having this much fun.  We’ll have water refill stations at the festival.  Please bring a water bottle.  We will also sell bottled water at the festival and we also allow you to bring your own.  You can bring factory-sealed drinking bottles of water into the arena.

Be prepared for weather. We encourage you to bring sunscreen, a sun hat, and sunglasses – the Texas sun can be strong, even in April. Central Texas 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.

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.

Be prepared to play. If you’re a musician, bring your instrument! From late-night campground jam sessions to workshops led by our performers, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to share your music.
