WHEN TO ARRIVE

Many first-time attendees often have questions about how to get into the festival: When should I arrive? What tickets should I have? How long will it take to get into the campground? This year may be a little confusing for long-time festival-goers due to the special Thursday Benefit Concert with Michael Franti.

Here is everything you need to know about arriving at the festival and making the process quick and easy!

Michael Franti Ticket Holders

If you're coming to see Michael Franti, you are either planning to camp overnight and attend the three-day festival that runs through Sunday, or you are attending for the day only and will leave by 12 midnight on Thursday.

Campers attending the Michael Franti concert:

In order to camp at Live Oak starting on Thursday, you are required to have both a Full Festival pass and a Michael Franti ticket with camping, in addition to the proper pass(es) for your vehicle or vehicle and trailer. You may arrive at the festival no earlier than 12 noon on Thursday, June 14th.  

From noon – 3 PM, the Ticket Gate staff will scan your tickets and provide your wristbands for entry. Once processed, full festival/Michael Franti campers will be allowed entry into the campground starting at 3 PM.

Those attending the Michael Franti concert and NOT camping:

You are required to have a Michael Franti Concert Only ticket to attend the concert. With this ticket, you are allowed entry no earlier than 5 PM on Thursday, June 14th. Parking is $10 or $5 for cars with three or more people.

REGULAR FULL FESTIVAL  PASS HOLDERS (NOT ATTENDING MICHAEL FRANTI)

If you are planning to camp at Live Oak any day, starting on Friday, you are required to have a Full Festival pass, plus the proper pass(es) for your vehicle or vehicle and trailer. You may arrive at the festival no earlier than 3 PM on Thursday (if you wish to camp overnight in Campo Bajo, adjacent to the Ticket Gate); otherwise, you may arrive Friday morning no earlier than 8 AM.
