CAMPING

GA CAMPING - GENERAL INFO

General Admission (GA) Camping has several options. Your camping pass level must match your event ticket level, a GA Event ticket with GA Camping, VIP Event ticket with VIP Camping.

Every camp site requires a camping pass. Access to the campsites will only be granted if you have also bought an event ticket to Lockn' Music Festival. Anyone staying in any of the Lockn' Festival campsites must abide by this rule.

Campgrounds are close to showers (small fee), bathrooms, hand-washing stations and fresh drinking water. There are General Stores and plenty of vendors, so you can easily find what you forgot to bring! The festival venue is spread over a beautiful, historic 4800 acre farm. Easy walking paths are available, and we encourage bringing a bike to get around and to enjoy the bike trails. Bike racks will be provided at the event site and around the venue. For more Biking details, see here.

VIP & SUPER VIP CAMPING

See CID's page for VIP camping options! These Camping passes are only for those who have purchased VIP tickets.

BRINGING YOUR OWN RV

RV's are welcome! Each RV requires one RV pass, but every person in the RV must possess an event ticket to enter. The GA RV Pass includes 30-amp power hookup, the VIP/Super VIP RV Pass includes 30-amp or 50-amp options. 

Don’t hesitate! RV space is limited, and will sell out. 

One companion vehicle is allowed per RV, and must be attached to the RV. Extra cars must be parked in Day Parking (Purchase Day Car Parking).

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

In GA RV camping, your holding tanks will be emptied 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 water filling stations in the campgrounds. See our VIP info page for info on VIP RV Passes. 

What qualifies as an RV? If your vehicle is not an RV, bus or pop-up trailer, it cannot park in the RV sections. 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 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, and is not allowed.)

PATRONS WITH DISABILITIES

The following information should answer all of your questions regarding accessibility at Lockn’ Music Festival. If you have any additional questions, email ada@locknfestival.com.

  • ACCESS TENT: This is where guests with disabilities can get information and request services. Located in the Accessible Camping area, the Access Tent will be staffed throughout the festival hours, from gates open until gates close. This is also the designated area for recharging wheelchairs and scooters. Guests use this power at their own risk. Lockn’ Music Festival is not responsible for any personal equipment.
  • FESTIVAL GROUNDS: Lockn’ is a large site with various types of natural and groomed terrain that includes hills, sandy pathways, dirt roads and grassy fields.  Plan accordingly as there are distances to be covered to get to all of the areas and stages on the site, and as with any natural terrain, rain can impact the conditions.
  • GOLF CARTS: Golf carts will be available to transport patrons with mobility impairments. Golf carts travel to and from Accessible Camping and the viewing platform. Pick-up and drop-off points for golf cart transportation include the Access Tent in the Accessible Camping area and the Accessible Viewing platform.  Rules, guidelines, and schedules for golf cart transportation will be distributed on-site for patrons who require this service.
  • ACCESSIBLE CAMPING: Entrance into the Accessible Camping area is gained with a valid, Accessible GA Ticket and Accessible GA Camping pass, in addition to having a current, state issued disabled license plate, hang tag or placard.
  • ACCESSIBLE DAY PARKING: Accessible day parking location will be determined closer to the event date.  It will be on the map.
  • ACCESSIBLE VIEWING: Lockn’ Music Festival will provide an elevated Accessible Viewing Platform within the venue for guests who use wheelchairs, have significant mobility disabilities, or who have difficulty standing for long periods of time. Companions are always welcome on the viewing platforms!
  • ACCESSIBLE RESTROOMS: There will be accessible porta-johns in the Accessible Camping area, and near the Accessible Viewing Platform. There will be other accessible porta-johns in key areas throughout the festival grounds.

SERVICE ANIMALS

A 'service animal' means "any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. The work or tasks performed by a service animal must be directly related to the handler's disability." For our legitimate patrons with disabilities who wish to bring their service animals to Lockn’ Music Festival, we ask that you review and follow the policies outlined below:

  • Service animals must be accompanied by the handler with the disability.
  • Service animals must be under the control and supervision of their handler at all times.
  • Service animals are not permitted to be left in camp unattended under any circumstances.
  • Handlers are required to be prepared for, and clean-up after, their animals at all times.
  • We reserve the right to remove and/or refuse access to any service animal from the campgrounds or venues if that animal is deemed to be a health or safety threat to festival patrons, staff, or other service animals, or in violation of these policies.
  • All service animals must be credentialed by Lockn’ security staff (see the procedures below).

Please note that all service dogs, including those from out of state, are subject to local dog ordinances, which includes a valid rabies certificate. All patrons with disabilities attending Lockn’ Music Festival this year with a service animal will need to have that animal credentialed by Lockn’ staff before entering the main gate/bottle check area. Once you arrive at Lockn’, come to the main gate/bottle check area. Lockn’ security staff will speak with you, record your contact information, and provide a collar tag for your service animal. Then you are good to go! Lockn’ security staff will be on the lookout for all animals to have a properly credentialed Lockn’ collar tag. 

Remember, Service animals are allowed, all other dogs are not!

 

SOBER LOCKN'

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 12 pm and 4 pm at Trinity Episcopal Church, just across the street from the festival. Trinity graciously provides a tranquil and non-denominational garden environment for meetings. 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 camping area is reserved for those in recovery wishing to share the full Lockn’ Music Festival experience amongst others with common beliefs and experiences in sobriety. Purchase a Car Camping pass as Sober Camping is a Car Camping area. See our FAQ page for answers to common Sober Lockn' questions. Sign up for our Sober Camping area. Any questions, email sober@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.

CAMPING AND PARKING

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 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 camping areas in your car, when you return you will be asked to purchase a Day Parking ticket and leave your vehicle in Day Parking. You can then walk back to your RV or Car Camping site.

Additional cars arriving with campers must be parked in Day 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. There is a designated motorcycle parking area within general Day Parking. Please purchase a Day Parking pass. You will be directed to the motorcycle parking area.
