Arriving at the Event

Be prepared before your arrival at the gate:

  • Have your ticket in-hand if you purchased a ticket during the first two rounds of ticket sales or purchased FOR FACE VALUE from a third party.
  • Have your ID ready, especially for those who have their ticket at Will Call.
  • Have a signed liability waiver.
  • Have enough food, water, and equipment to survive the event.

Other considerations:

  • Gate volunteers will test your Survival Guide knowledge.
  • Your vehicle will be searched.
  • Follow the direction of the gate volunteers and move your vehicle when directed.
  • Working gate is a thankless task. Be nice to your gate personnel and they will be nice to you. A cold, tasty beverage goes a long way.
  • Drive slowly for safety and to keep down dust.
  • If you need to leave and return DUE TO EMERGENCY, check with the gate when leaving to arrange for your reentry (see below).

Re-entry (aka In and Out)

All people regardless of situation (unless emergency medical) will be charged a $10 fee if they leave and want to re-enter. Passes must be purchased upon *exiting* the event. Upon reentry the pass and ticket stub must be presented at the gate, so be sure to have your ticket stub with you.

New for 2016: Trash disposal!

The landowner is setting up a couple of trucks on Sunday to receive trash at the Big 4 Store at the corner of Highway 12 and County Road 47.7 outside the gate. For $5 per bag, you can dispose of your garbage. Proceeds will go to kids programs in Trinidad. “Don’t haul your smelly trash back to your home and help a great cause. We will recycle what we can. Spread the word. Ciao enjoy the event.” – Glenn
