Health & Safety
How to Dress & What to Bring
Dress for comfort and be sure to check the weather forecast before you head out the door. The festival grounds are a combination of paved surfaces, gravel and grass, so choose your footwear accordingly. We recommend a hat and sunglasses, along with your non-aerosol sunscreen, but if you forget anything, the Festival Store has lots of great merchandise offerings!
