Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Yes, you will need to bring your printed ticket to the box office at the entrance to receive your festival wristband. No one will be allowed entry without a proper festival wristband on.


The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?
If the name on the ticket does not match the name of the attendee, that is okay. Be careful to make sure that you don’t lose your ticket or have it stolen from you because if it is used before you arrive, you will have to purchase another one.

How can I live the high life because I’m not a great camper?

The Dirtybird Campout will offer pre-setup Kodiak camping packages for those who want to come enjoy the campout experience but don’t have the time or energy to shop for, pack up and bring all of their own camping gear. Let us handle all the dirty work and just sit back and enjoy your stay! Camping Package info can be found here.

I want to get the right supplies for the weekend. What do you recommend bringing?

Depending on how you roll, camping can be simple and basic or it can be a timeless luxury experience. We recommend the following basics: tent, shade for tent, sleeping bags and blankets, camp chairs, lanterns, folding tables, trash bags, snacks and drinks, sun block, bug spray, lip balm, good walking shoes, fun lights for camp at night time, flags and other identifiable objects so you can find your camp, and anything else fun you can think of. Please see our complete list of what to bring and what not to bring HERE!

 

What will I be able to purchase on site?

There will be plenty of food vendors onsite to feed you throughout the weekend. We’ll also have several bars serving beer, wine and cocktails. There will also be a small general store in case you forget some basics like toothpaste or a tooth brush.

 

What can/can’t I bring to the event?

You cannot bring weapons, sound systems, charcoal stoves, kegs or large quantities of alcohol into the event. These will be strictly enforced.

You can bring blankets, toys and games to play with, lots of friends and good attitudes. Get ready to have some fun!

 

I left a jar of mayo in the sun all day then made a sandwich. Do you have a Medical Tent?

Yes, we will have a medic tent in the main campground plaza. If you have any issues or see someone with an issue please don’t hesitate to call on our medic staff for support. They are here to help you and happy to do it.

 

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

There will be an info booth next to the medic tent in the main campground plaza. They will be able to help you with general questions and if you need to contact production they can do that as well. For questions before you arrive onsite please email support@thedolab.com and we’ll assist you via the interwebs.

Where do we throw away our trash at the end of the event?

Dirtybird Campout is a pack it in, pack it out festival. That means you DO NOT leave your trash behind when you leave, but you take it ALL with you! We recommend bringing lots of trash bags and leaving extra room in your vehicle to haul your trash away when you leave. Let’s keep it beautiful, Campers!

Venue FAQ

I’m coming from out of town. What airport do I fly to?
The closest airport to Lake San Antonio is San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport, about 1.5 hours away from the venue. San Jose International Airport is 2.5 hours away, San Francisco International Airport is 3 hours away, and Los Angeles International Airport is 4.5 hours away.

 

Can I bring an RV? Is there any additional cost?
Yes, you can bring an RV to the Campout with the purchase of an RV Camping Pass (available as a separate item on the ticket page). Any vehicle larger than a van or towing a trailer will need to purchase an RV Camping Pass.

There are no size restrictions on RVs, but there are two size options of RV Camping Passes (Short – less than 27’ and Long – more than 27’). Please keep your entire footprint in mind when purchasing your RV pass. For example, if your car is towing your trailer, the length of your car must be included.

RV Camping Passes with Power and water hookups will be available for purchase.

One RV Camping Pass is good for one RV. You do not need to purchase a RV Camping Pass for each person camping in the RV, but everyone (including the driver) does need to have a 3-Day Pass or Backstage Party Pass to come in with the RV.


What are my transportation options getting to the event if I don’t have a car?
There are Camp Bus tickets available for purchase offering round-trip transportation from LAX or SFO to the event. Exact times and locations will be released with general onsale information.
