We are committed to fostering a relaxed atmosphere, but there are certain guidelines that must be followed to ensure a safe and fun festival for everyone. Every attendee must abide by the following:
- When you arrive at the Front Gate you will have a wristband placed on your wrist which will be your ticket. Wristbands cannot be removed or shared. If you lose your wristband, you forfeit entrance to the festival, you will not be given a new wristband.
- NO CLIMBING ON THE CHIMNEYS!! Please stay on the designated trail.
- Absolutely NO PETS allowed on the festival grounds, campgrounds or parking lots (ADA service animals excepted). This will be strictly enforced.
- No fireworks, drones, smoke bombs or sky lanterns

- No outside alcohol permitted. Coolers and bags will be checked. (Augusta County Park Rules) Beer gardens brought to you by Blue Mountain Brewery provided with beer, wine and cider available*
- No unauthorized vending – if you’re not a registered vendor you may not sell or distribute anything on the festival grounds
- Audience and radio taping only (no soundboard patches), except when prohibited by performing artist.

Enjoy the relaxed festival atmosphere, but be proactive about the security of your belongings. Leave your campground overtly empty. Don’t bring what you cannot afford to lose and be sure to look after one another. Our community is not possible without your participation!
Festival goers must abide by all local, state, and federal laws. NO ALCOHOL OR DRUG SALES tolerated anywhere on the festival site or annexed properties. Anyone caught selling or distributing illicit substances will immediately have their wristband cut and be ejected from the festival. Further legal repercussions are likely.
We’ll have free water so bring your reusable bottle!
*To partake our delicious craft beer and cider in our Blue Mountain Beer Gardens, you must purchase tickets from booths stationed inside the ABC area. Beer/cider/wine tickets are $6 each, for 16oz beers or 12oz cider servings. In our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, we minimize plastics by only serving drinks in Klean Kanteen stainless steel cups. Purchase one in the garden, or re-use your cup from last year, Rooster Walk, The Festy Experience or FloydFest!
YOU MUST BRING A VALID ID to consume alcohol. (Having grey hair and grandkids are not acceptable forms of ID.)
**The festival grounds are wheelchair/handicap accessible, including portable restrooms. A limited number of handicap spaces will be designated in General Admission Parking; a parking pass is still required. If needed, a golf cart ride from main gate to Music Meadow will be provided.
