Camping

Camping is included with every GA Pass. You don't have to camp with us but we highly encourage it as camping out as a collective is a huge part of the SSBD magic. Rent full campsites for you and your crew or camp in our Up-Front Campgrounds.


All of our camping areas are walking distance to the stages and beaches. You'll need a separate parking pass to park your vehicle near where you're camping. 


Parking

All vehicles will need to purchase a separate parking pass, parking is not included with your GA ticket. Parking options are available on our ticketing website, parking fills up fast so we do not recommend waiting to purchase your parking pass. 


We also highly encourage car-pooling to save both money and the environment.

Parking

We offer two parking options at the festival. 


Up-front Parking allows you to park right next to the camping areas, and festival entrance. These passes sell out, so make sure to get yours before they do! 


Slightly Remote Parking allows you to park within a 5-10 minute walk from the festival area.


If you're bringing an RV, bus or trailer you must purchase a Large Vehicle Pass. This is for all vehicles over 20 feet in length.
