Our goal is to reduce waste hitting the landfill as much as possible and that requires all of us working together with a commitment of packing up what we bring in.

Toiletries Don’t leave behind the toothbrush, toothpaste, feminine products, towel, and extra toilet paper never hurts.

Scarves and bandanas: Wet these and toss ’em in the cooler for a refreshing treat.


Bathing Suit: Bring the right attire to take a dip and cool off in the lake.


Self Expression Through Style: Be you and do what you do with your bad self…we can’t wait to see what ya got! 

GEAR DROP OFF

If you are NOT camping next to your vehicle we will have a designated gear drop-off zone near the camp sites.


This will be a 5 minute loading / unloading zone for those that need to unpack their vehicles and park in our 

SILVER, BRONZE or DAILY PARKING LOTS


If you are in remote parking you may be allowed to utilize the drop-off zone or we may have a shuttle to help transport gear depending on the time and day that you arrive.

CAR-CAMPING

Parking your vehicle near where you're camping allows you to lock up gear, sleep in the vehicle and keeps your unload-time short and sweet. 


If you want to park next to where you camp you have two options for vehicle passes. 


UP-FRONT GOLD PARKING

This is a PARKING LOT and it's next to our Up-Front Gold Tent Campground. You can park in this lot and carry your gear from the parking lot to wherever you choose to set up your tent and keep your walk short. If you are able to park on the edge of the parking lot you can set up next to your vehicle, if you're in the middle you may have a 50 foot walk. These campgrounds are closer to the festival with a very short walk to get in the gates.


CAR-CAMPING PARKING

These are located in the Bobcat, Quail and Road-Runner camping loops. You will be given an actual space to park your vehicle where you can set up your tent next to where you park. These parking loops are about a 5-10 minute walk to the gates.


ELECTRIC CAR-CAMPING PARKING

If you want to car-camp with power hookups to charge phones and other electronics these coveted spaces are your best bet. Located in our Coyote camping loop which is also close to the festival gates. You'll receive a spot that has a 20 amp power circuit on it that will be shared between two camps. Perfect for running power to your camp but it will not support speaker systems or renegade stages.

RV CAMPING

RVs are very welcome at SSBD, if you buy a parking pass for your RV there is no limit on who can sleep at the RV.


If you're bringing an RV to Same Same But Different you have two options:


 RV PARKING WITH HOOKUPS

*Best if you have friends that want to tent-camp nearby.

Spaces are 25 feet wide, maximum length is 40 feet.

This space includes a 30 amp power hookup for your vehicle and also a running water hookup and grey water dump for your vehicle. Black water dump located on-site nearby but not at your site. Campsite space is available around the RV to set up tents nearby if needed. These spaces are near showers and bathrooms with running water that are cleaned and maintained by the state park. Each RV space has its own grill / fire-pit and picnic table. If your friends want to camp with you they can. If your friends are bringing another vehicle they will need to purchase a separate parking pass depending on their needs. All RV and parking spaces are first-come, first-serve and cannot be reserved. No vehicles without this parking pass will be allowed into this lot.


RV PARKING WITHOUT HOOKUPS

This pass provides a parking space in our RV Parking Lot without Hookups. 

The parking spot is 12 feet wide by 40 feet long. 

If your RV is wider than 12 feet you must purchase a second RV Parking Pass. (Limit 2 Per Order)

Reserves a space for any RV, bus or towable trailer. 

Spaces are first-come, first-serve. 

This space is in a parking lot only, you can camp inside your vehicle however there is no space around it to set up tents. 


RV DROP-OFFS FROM THIRD PARTIES

If you plan to use an RV delivery service, the SSBD guest with the GA/VIP wristband and the RV parking pass need to arrive with rental delivery driver. Once the RV is dropped off, the delivery driver and their vehicle is expected to leave the property if they do not have a wristband and/or parking pass. All RV rentals through Stress Free RVs are accounted for and will be allowed to arrive without the SSBD guest present.


Delivery drivers are able to enter to pick up the RVs on Monday without SSBD guest present.

TENT CAMPING

Camping out as a collective, we feel, is essential to the SSBD experience. Therefor, camping is included in every single pass. 


You will be allowed to set up your camp in all of the following campground. 


**To park a car you will need a separate parking pass, see the car-camping tab for detail**


BOBCAT CAR-CAMPING CAMPGROUND

ROAD RUNNER CAR-CAMPING CAMPGROUND

QUAIL CAR-CAMPING CAMPGROUND

OWL RV CAMPGROUND

TENT CAMPING CAMPGROUND (NEXT TO UPFRONT GOLD PARKING LOTS)


You will NOT be allowed to set up camp next to Silver, Bronze, Daily Parking Lots or Remote Parking Lots. 


SHOWERS / BATHROOMS

If you're camping in Quail, Road-Runner, Coyote, Owl or Bob Cat Campgrounds you will be located very close to state park maintained bathrooms with showers.  These facilities have running water for sinks, toilets and all have at least one shower unit in them. All festival attendees will be allowed access to any of the shower / bathroom facilities, however Gold Tent Camping Campgrounds will have a longer walk (5 - 10 minutes) to get to them.


These showers are all free to use by all attendees. We do not have paid shower options.

SHIFTPOD CAMPING (SOLD OUT)

If you're flying in from out of town or just don't want to bother with setting up and bringing your own tent we recommend you book a Shift Pod Campsite with us at the festival.


We set up a fully-enclosed, private area at the festival for you and your guests. The Shift Pod tent area is located close enough to quickly walk back and forth from the stages and has its own upgraded bathrooms.

How We Celebrate

Dance, Play And Be Yourself

This is a space to be completely and fearlessly yourself. We don't take ourselves too seriously, have fun and step out of your comfort zone!

The Dancefloor

Everybody want to be close to the action but remember to move carefully & calmly through crowds. Never push through people. If you want to be in the front for a set, your best option is to arrive early.

Harm Reduction

Remember the Golden Rule... “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Offer support to those in need. If somebody looks lost or unwell, ask them how they are. If needed, help them find medical or security staff.

Explore New Music Genres

We think it's important for all of us to listen to new ideas and new concepts with an open mind. Try checking out some new music you never thought you'd like and see where it takes you!

Take Care Of Yourself

Listen to your body! Connect with your body. Drink water, take breaks, get sleep, be present, and know your limits. The future of this event depends on you!

Respect People's Boundaries and Bodies

Personal Space is real. Keep your hands to yourself unless given clear verbal consent. Never assume & always listen. Compliment kindly not crudely. Approach every person respectfully.

Take Responsibility For Your Actions and Words

What you say, the costumes you wear, and the things you do can impact those around you. Check yourself regularly, educate yourself, be open to constructive feedback, and when in doubt ask.

Actively Participate

We all take an active role in creating the SSBD experience for everyone. We stay off the sidelines, exploring the possibilities of being the best versions of ourselves. Put down the phone! Maybe this is the disconnect you need. Turn it off, leave it at camp, let it go. Instagram will still be there when you get back.

Lead By Example

Kind acts are contagious! Pick up some trash and watch the person next to you do the same. See how many kind acts you can create.

Share Your Creativity

Create, take a drawing class, or explore participatory art. Just don’t deface or damage someone else’s art! Create with respect.

Respect The Land

We have gratitude for the land and community where SSBD is held. We strive to leave the land better than we found it and make a positive impact as part of the community. Pleas respect native plant and wildlife in ht

Pack It In, Pack It Out

Manage your camp trash, take all your camping gear home, and leave your space better than it was when you got there.

Up-Front Gold allows a vehicle to park in the parking lots closest to our festival grounds. They are adjacent to our Up-Front Gold Campgrounds. No vehicles are allowed to drive onto the dirt / grass in our Up-Front Gold Campgrounds, therefore all vehicles will be parked in the parking lot. The lots are dispersed throughout the campgrounds so the walk from a vehicle is typically about 50-100 feet. 

Car-Camping is new this year and allows you to drive you vehicle into our Car-Camping Campgrounds. You will be parked in the area you're camping at and can set up your tent next to your vehicle. Additionally, Car-Camping Campgrounds all have restrooms and showers maintained by the state park.

The car-camping loops all have fire pits in them that are part of the state-park.
