  • Arrive Early
  • On the day of your arrival, we highly recommend getting here as early as possible so that you have plenty of time to get through security, get settled at your campsite, and get ready for music and activities in the afternoon and evening.
  • Tuesday evening, Wednesday, and Thursday Early Entry passes are still available online and at the Box Office if you want to attend! Get Early Entry
  • Need to hit the Box Office?
  • If almost everyone in the car needs the Box Office, pull over to the right when you arrive. You can park, handle your business, get back in your car and then go through the security lane right next to the Box Office.
  • However, if only one or two people in the car need the Box Office, they can jump out and handle their business while the rest of the car waits in the search lanes. If the car makes it through before they are done at the Box Office, they can go through the pedestrian search lane next to the box office and meet the car in the Waiting For Friends Lot.
  • Check the Camping Packing List
  • Find it here!
  • Each year the weather at Legend Valley is different. Pack for all weather, and remember that days can be hot and nights can be cold. Lost Lands will happen rain or shine, so be prepared!


  • All campgrounds open at 7pm Tuesday and remain open 24 hours per day throughout the weekend.
  • Early Entry wristbands are required to arrive on Tuesday evening, Wednesday or Thursday.

  • If you need to pick up wristbands from Will Call or buy additional tickets, you’ll be directed to the Box Office next to your camping tolls.

  • To expedite entry for everyone, be sure all passengers are wearing wristbands on the same wrist, and camping and parking passes are displayed properly. You must have both your GA Tent-Only Camping vehicle pass, GA Tent-Only Camping wristbands, and festival wristbands.

  • Be sure you know what’s prohibited in the Festival grounds and campgrounds. All vehicles and individuals will be searched upon entering the campgrounds and main venue.
