CAMPING AND PARKING

A parking pass and/or a camping pass is needed for each vehicle parked on the festival grounds. Parking passes and camping passes are detailed and available for purchase here. There is also an extensive FAQ section covering Camping and Parking questions.

Only one car is allowed per car camping site. Only one attached companion car is allowed per RV campsite - and must be attached to your RV. Cars and RVs in Car Camping and RV Camping areas must remain parked at the camp site for the duration of the festival. There is no re-entry to these campsites. If you must leave these particular camping areas in your car, when you return you will be asked to purchase a Day Parking ticket and leave your vehicle there. You can then walk back to your RV or Car Camping site.

Additional cars arriving with campers must be parked in Daily Parking and will be allowed to travel off the festival site.

Motorcycles fall under the same criteria as cars with respect to Parking and Camping.

Camping

GA CAMPING (for VIP CAMPING, scroll down!)

General Admission (GA) Camping has several options for your camping pleasure:

  1. Tent-Only Camping, $69.00
  2. Car Camping, $89.00
  3. Forest Camping, $149.00
  4. Preferred Tent-Only Camping, $199

Every camp site requires a camping pass. Check out details below, and our Map for locations for each camping type.

1) Buy a Tent-Only Camping pass, good for up to 4 people with one tent, which includes separate parking for your car ($69.00). A tent-only camping pass gives you a general admission camping spot with your car to be parked in a lot near-by. This type of camping allows more freedom to gather with friends arriving at different times to the festival. For more details about Tent-Only Camping, see our Ticketing page.

Purchase Tent-Only

2) Buy a Car Camping pass, to camp with your car and tent ($89.00). A car camping pass allows a car to be parked in a camping spot with enough room for both a car and one tent that you bring. Your camping neighbors will be the people in the cars in front of you and those behind you as you arrive at the festival site. Once you park your car in the camping area, it must not be moved for the entire length of the festival unless you are exiting the Festival, in which case your car may return to the day parking area.  For more details about Car-Camping, see our Ticketing page.

Purchase Car Camping

3) Buy a Forest Camping pass ($149.00). Forest camping is canopied among healthy trees with a freshly prepared ground surface. These are tent-only sites. Forest camping tickets include parking close to the Forest camping site. NOTE: Forest camping is not available to VIPs at this time.

Purchase Forest Camping

4) Buy a Preferred Tent-Only Camping pass, good for up to 4 people with one tent, which includes separate parking for your car ($199.00). See map for location of this camping area. This preferred tent-only area includes a limited number of GA tent sites closer to the event site. A tent-only camping pass gives you a general admission camping spot with your car to be parked in a lot near-by. This type of camping allows more freedom to gather with friends arriving at different times to the festival. For more details about Tent-Only Camping, see our Ticketing page.

Purchase GA Preferred Tent-Only Camping

GA CAMPING - GENERAL INFO

Transportation from campsites to the event site and vice versa will be provided at regular frequent intervals, easy walking paths are available, and we strongly encourage bringing a bike to get around.

RV's are welcome! An RV Pass is required. It includes power hookup. A GA RV Parking Pass is $199.00. A VIP RV Parking Pass is $600.00.

Don’t hesitate! RV space is limited, and spaces will sell out. There will be RV designated parking areas in VIP camping and GA camping. Every RV will need an RV Pass, which can be purchased at the same time as your event ticket or separately. GA and VIP ticket-holders must purchase an RV pass matching their ticket level. An RV requires only one pass, but every person in the RV must possess a festival ticket to enter. See CID's Lockn' page to purchase a VIP RV Pass.

One companion vehicle is allowed per RV, and must be attached to the RV. Extra cars must be parked in General Day Parking, and have a related parking pass.

Once your RV is parked, plan to stay put. You may not move to another space, and if you leave, you surrender your space. If you must leave temporarily, you may purchase a Day Parking pass and park your car there upon your return. You may not drive back into your campsite.

Dumping/Filling? In GA, a company on-site will empty your holding tanks for a reasonable fee. For water, please arrive at the event with your RV filled, and bring a portable container to refill. There will be free container refills at the water bottle fill. In VIP, fresh water refills and gray water dumping are provided free of charge on Fri/Sat/Sun.

What qualifies as an RV? If your vehicle is not an RV, bus or pop-up trailer, it cannot park in the RV sections. Box trucks are not permitted at all. No exceptions. An RV is defined as any vehicle equal of, or larger either in length, width or height than an average 15-passenger van (230.8″ x 79.3″ x 82.3″). Any oversized vehicle, trailer, towed camper or bus is considered to be an RV. To gain entry, your RV must fit into a 20′ X 50′ space (including slides or awnings). Tents, canopies, hammocks, etc. may be set up next to your RV as long as they fit within the designated space. (Important: A box truck is not an RV. It is a box truck and box trucks are not allowed.)

Sober Lockn'

Sober Lockn’ returns in 2014. Established and staffed by group of passionate music lovers who chose to remain clean and sober at the festival, the Sober Lockn’ tent is open to everyone seeking serenity and fellowship in the midst of all the fun.

Sober Lockn’ isn’t affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, nor any other 12-Step programs. Sober Lockn’ makes no judgment on others’ decisions related to drugs and alcohol, neither condemning nor condoning their use. We’re simply liked-minded music fans who gather to offer support – and help navigate what might otherwise be a slippery environment for sobriety.

Sober Lockn’ holds daily meetings at noon and 4 p.m. Just across the street from the festival, Trinity Episcopal Church graciously extends hospitality and provides a tranquil and non-denominational garden environment. At midnight Friday and Saturday (not on Sunday) meetings are held at the Sober Lockn’ tent inside the festival grounds.

Sober Camping sites are available. A special designated area is reserved for those in recovery wishing to share the full Lockn’ experience amongst others with common beliefs and experiences in sobriety. Details on Sober Camping access will be posted shortly. For any questions and to sign up ahead of time for our Sober Camping area, email Sean at sober[at]locknfestival.com.

Why Sober Lockn’

Need to talk? If you need someone to talk with, that’s why we’re at Sober Lockn’.

In distress? We care, so relax. We’re compassionate people who can provide support in a non-judgmental and confidential manner.

Want connection? So do we. All of our people have experienced a broad range of struggles of their own and are willing to be open about them with you.
