Coordinated by the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics and Planet Bluegrass, the contest encourages all of us to raise the bar for sustainable and creative camping. All entrants are eligible for random daily prizes, while campsites that excel in achieving the highest levels of the Leave No Trace philosophy could win FREE camping and 4-day passes for the following year’s festival!
It takes the power of an entire community to host a sustainable festival experience. In order to cut down on waste, lessen the impact of your campsite, and keep the local wildlife wild, we all need to do our part to camp right. Together with the help of our partner, the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, we have compiled a list of best camping practices to implement when you visit any of our festivals.
