just double checking but are 3 day ticket holders guaranteed a camping spot when we arrive? I'm sending my $$ in for a ticket now and will be heading up on Friday. I just want to be able to camp on site.
Save me a spot! jk smiling smiley

Thanks jb.
I didn't realize that camping passes are available in advance.
Do I just send the extra $$ along with the ticket price?
I'm assuming yes.
Thanks!

Yeah, that was my concern. I've always bought my 3 day ticket in advance knowing that when I showed up, I would get a camping spot. I never cared where I was camping, only that is was on site. Last year I was in the baseball field.

So it seems that this year having a 3 day pass will NOT guarantee a camping spot?
I hope that if this is true, the word gets out soon enough for people who are expecting to camp on site will buy their passes in advance.

I'll be buying my ticket/camping pass asap!

all i know is what i said. im not sure how camping is being handled for ticketmaster or what the deal is there. maybe a call to the hotline would help alleviate your concerns or clarify the situation.

zana (and other potential campers) - i paid in advance for camping and got a "car/suv camping confirmation" form that says "you must present this confirmation...to enter the campground". so it does appear you MUST pay for camping in order to camp. i guess we will see how strictly this is enforced but for now, if you want to camp you must pay extra. personally, i don't mind paying extra to camp on (ahem) lush green grass rather than dirt.

Can I pay in advance for the RV Camping? Is it the same or $100.00 dollars?. The camping link must be old. It saids camping is 1st come !st serve, no advance reservation.

KP,
I read that RV hook up's/ Camping is sold out. but I bet you can bring the RV and pay the price but no hook ups.

jb - this year though we get an official "camping confirmation" as opposed to paying for camping at the gate.

dw if you mean you must pay *in advance* for camping this year, that remains to be seen. if it turns out there are spaces left then you will be able to buy camping at the gate. to be safe one should buy camping passes in advance.

sorry if the camping part of the site is not updated, hopefully daniel will get to it soon but i believe he is out of the area until after the weekend. theres an incredible number of little loose ends that add to the confusion.

I don't believe the camping information is out of date. We have space for some 1,800 camping vehicles, and they will be doled out on a first come-first served basis. By this, I mean the first 1,500 vehicles to purchase a camping pass will be accomodated, and no others....If 1,500 passes are sold prior to the festival, there will be no camping passes available at the gate. If not, then the remaining spots will be sold at the gate on a first come first served basis...

>> "No early departures this time smiling smiley "

LOL - yeah goatfoot, what the hell was up with the morning disappearing act? I don't even know how in the world you guys got up before us - you all were drinking like Irish men fresh outta the pokey. You bringin a bass? Nuff drums for sure...

Can't wait to see you guys this year!
Re: camping concern/question

If the percentage of festival goers that camp on-site remains the same as in year's prior, and if the average number of campers per vehicle remains the same as in prior years, then there will be no problem with camping spaces, as music tickets will sell out first. Yes, you can buy a camping pass without buying a music ticket, but you will not be allowed into the camping area unless you also have a 3-day music ticket...

Haha Dubguy....the only reason we got up that early is that I have evil friends...with alarm clocks! If our Isreal brethren make it out again, we shall have the bass. Always drums though, always!
