FallGrass Frequently Asked Questions
CAMPING IS SOLD PER PERSON, NOT PER SITE. You will need to purchase a camping pass for EVERY person over the age of 12 in your group. A camping ticket is for TENT SPACE ONLY.
Nope! While we love all animals, they are not permitted in any campgrounds, or on the festival grounds.
In order to camp with a vehicle or RV, everyone in your party must have a camping pass for the respective campground and you must purchase an additional vehicle or RV pass for your camper, car, or trailer of choice.
For Example: You and two friends want to camp in your sweet 1980’s Winnebago Camper Van. Nice! To do that, you must purchase three camping passes and one vehicle or RV pass in addition to your Festival passes.
NOTE: Not all campgrounds allow vehicles or RV’s. Be sure to check the campground details page to double check before purchase.
A vehicle is considered anything requiring a license plate, e.g. a camper, trailer, tow vehicle, etc. If you intend to have both your camper-trailer and tow vehicle in the campground, then you must have 2 vehicle passes or a vehicle pass and an RV pass, depending on the length of the camper trailer. (see above FAQ)
If you don’t need your vehicle in the campground - for sleeping or for storage - you don’t need a campground vehicle pass. Most Festivarians don’t purchase a vehicle pass. You can temporarily drive into the campground to unload your gear, and park your vehicle in our remote festival parking lots.
We will have space for everyone to camp in the campground you purchased tickets to. Some of our campgrounds are so popular that we have very intensive lineup procedures in place to handle early arrivals. Please review the information page for the individual campgrounds for details.
Our on-site campground has a bathhouse which includes access to free showers.
Unfortunately, fires are not allowed on Planet Bluegrass property.
Nope! The campground will close at noon on Sunday, September 17th.
Is this a joke? You’re already there!
Generators: We prefer that you don’t bring generators when camping at our festivals. This is a great opportunity to disconnect! But if you must, here are the rules:
- Generator quiet hours are 11pm to 7am everyday. Please DO NOT run your generators during this time.
- DO NOT run your generator if you are not present at camp.
- You must have a fire extinguisher within 10’ of your generator at all times it is running (our staff will ask!)
- DO NOT place your generator near tall grass or shrubs
- Be conscious and respectful to your neighbors
Please come prepared for any weather conditions. This includes: intense sun, heat, rain, wind, sleet and yes, possibly snow. The show happens rain or shine! At an altitude of 5,371 feet the weather can change quickly, it does get chilly at night even if the temperature is in the 90s during the day. SUNSCREEN IS A MUST! Please remember to DRINK LOTS OF WATER and WATCH YOUR ALCOHOL consumption, especially if you’re coming from lower elevations.
NO NO NO. NO PETS OF ANY KIND ALLOWED in the campgrounds, the show, or the parking lots. Be your dog’s best friend and do not bring them to the show.
