Sleep under the stars
If weather permits, the festival site is a pretty unbeatable place to camp au natural. While we wouldn't advise turning up without a tent, if conditions allow, seize the moment.
This is most certainly not a festival to bring the kitchen sink to. Think about what you’ll actually need, because you'll be trekking it to your camping location.
There are several ways to get to the festival, including plane, bus and rail. The closest airport is Vancouver Airport, with the festival grounds about a 2 and half hour journey from there. If you’re planning to take a train or bus from the US, be sure to check immigration and border guidelines—and don't forget your passport if you’re coming from the U.S.!
