Your festival wristband includes the price of walk-in tent camping. If you’d like to have your car at your camp spot, you’ll need a separate CAR PASS (if your vehicle is 17’ or shorter) for $75, or an RV PASS (if your vehicle is 17’ or longer - does not include hook ups) for $125. If you’d like to TENT CAMP, and not pay to have your vehicle in the campground, then you park in DAY PARK, and walk up into the campground with your gear.
Camping at the festival is on a first come, first served basis (communal festival camping). There are no reservations for physical camping sites (except for RV power sites with hook ups). You’re guaranteed at least a 12’x12’ of space for tent camping. The campground will fill up, so cozy up to your neighbors. If you’ve spread out an area larger than 12x12, you might be asked to share space as more campers arrive. If you want to camp with friends, we encourage you to arrive together, as roping off areas and saving large spaces for latecomers is unfair to other festival-goers. If you’re saving a small spot for a friend or two, kindly confer with your neighbors.
An info station, aka the Greeter Hut, is located on the left as you enter the campground from the road. When in the campground, this is your go-to spot for medical, security, information, lost and found, or help with anything. Camp greeters will be hanging at the Hut 24/7, in addition to rolling around the campground throughout the day/night to make sure all is well. We want your camping experience to be ridiculously fantastical. Really.
CAMPSITE NOISE & NUISANCE POLICY
You can play music at your camp (no sound systems or live amplified music), but not so it annoys your neighbors. If noise from your campsite is bothering your neighbors, you’ll be asked to turn it down. If your neighbors are bugging, let the funsters at the Greeter Hut know. We will also have a phone number posted at the festival, and in the festival program, so you can text the JTMF production crew re: any nuisances, situations or issues.
For families with children, located in the NW side of the campground. This is a quiet zone after dark, and kids like to make noise in the morning. So if that doesn’t sound like your style, there are acres of other camping space where you can find your tribe.
Hot Showers are free from 8am to 8pm each day. The cool down shower station will be open around the clock.
Please be a steward of the Earth & pack out what you pack in. Take time to decant packaged foods into reusable containers before you come to the festival. There is NO GLASS allowed in the Music Bowl, so please put your bevvies into reusable containers prior to arrival. Thanks for your help!
Sorry, but absolutely no pets are allowed (except ADA compliant service animals) in the festival campgrounds or festival area. Treat your pup to a vacation at the Joshua Tree Pet Resort, and ask for a festival discount. We love you and your doggies, but they need to stay at home
Yes, thanks to Mojave WiFi you can log on to the world wide web for a daily fee.
Yes, they will be on site in the music bowl right by the food vendors. But do come loaded with cash in case the ATM’s need servicing, or if you are inspired to exceed your daily withdrawal limits.
Wood fires are allowed only in the metal fire ring barrels. It is crucial that fires are extinguished completely before you leave the fire ring. High winds can occur without warning & carry embers.
Use of whisper quiet generators is permitted between 8am & 10pm.
Once you have your festival wristband, and your vehicle has the all-weekend in-and-out pass, you can come and go from the festival site as you please.
