What is the seating for the festival?
We will be on the grass under a large tent, so feel free to bring your own pillows, blankets, and chairs. Please note that seating is always open and that there are no reserved seats. In the spirit of community, if you leave your blanket or cushion unattended under the tent, others are also welcome to share those with you.
If I bought a ticket online (i.e Kickstarter or BrightStar Events), do I need a physical copy of the ticket?
You do not need a physical copy of your ticket. We have all your information, and it will be ready for you at the registration desk when you arrive.
What happens if it rains?
We will still have the festival and we will all be under the big tent enjoying the rain!
What is the venue like?
We will be at a venue that is in and surrounded by nature, so you can find nature's creatures, mosquitoes, bugs, etc., so please bring your bug repellents and check for tics if you are in the grassy or woodsy areas or trails. Also, there is poison ivy in these nature areas, so please be careful.
Blue Lotus Farm & Retreat is beautiful, can we explore the grounds?
Yes, absolutely! There is a labyrinth, trails around the pond and grounds, and a pond to enjoy. Please stay on the trails if you go exploring!
Are kids welcome?
Yes, and they each need their own festival pass. All children need to be supervised at all times, no exceptions.
Is the pool or pond available to use?
The pool will be closed and not available for use during the festival. However, the pond is available, and there will be canoes, kayaks and life jackets for use on the pond. LIFE JACKETS ARE REQUIRED BY LAW IF YOU ARE USING KAYAKS OR CANOES.

No, but they are transferable (see above).
We have a zero-tolerance policy for any mind-altering drugs, psychedelics, or alcohol. If you are under the influence of alcohol or any mind-altering drugs including marijuana, your registration will be revoked – with no refund – and you will be asked to immediately leave the festival grounds.
