SoberLOCKN’ is a community of music fans who choose to remain clean and sober at LOCKN’. We are not affiliated with AA, NA, nor any musical act. We have no opinion on the issue of drugs or alcohol and neither condemn nor condone them. Our simple purpose is to provide support and information to those who seek the comfort and camaraderie of other clean and sober people at LOCKN’. The only requirement is a desire to stay drug and alcohol free at the festival. Though we consist mostly of people in recovery from alcoholism and addiction, SoberLOCKN’ exists for anyone wishing to stay clean and sober and those seeking serenity and fellowship at the festival.

Daily meetings are at
