NO EXCEPTIONS

How big is a campsite?

Each Car Camping spot is 10’ x 30’

Each RV Campsite is 15’ x 45’

One Camping Pass = One Campsite.

One Campsite accommodates up to 6 campers. Your tent and belongings must fit inside your Campsite.

We recommend that you and your friends conduct a test campout before you head to the fest to be sure your tent and belongings fit on your Campsite. We support you!

I want to camp by my friends, can I save them a spot?

Nope – no saving spots or Campsites! If you want to camp with your friends you must arrive together. Actual Campsites are allocated upon arrival, so you and your friends need to show up together to camp next to each other!

I’m camping, can I go into town for the day with my vehicle?
NO I need a 2nd Parking Pass, can I get one?

No – if you have another car it must go into the Auxiliary lot and cannot enter the campgrounds. One vehicle per camping space.

How does Camping work?

1. Purchase your FESTIVAL TICKET (everyone is required to have their own Festival Ticket)

2. Once you have decided to camp, you will now need to purchase a CAMPING PASS. Camping Passes are $169 +fees per Car Campsite and $259 +fees per RV Campsite. No walk-in camping available. Each Campsite can accommodate up to 6 people. Only one person in your group will need to purchase a Camping Pass. Everyone, including yourself, will need to purchase a Festival Ticket. 
Each camping pass will come with 6 wristbands for your campsite. You will distribute to your group. No more than 6 people per Car Camping spot and RV spot will be allowed.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND:

Camping Passes will not be honored unless associated with a vehicle and a festival ticket.
Car and RV parking passes will not be honored without a corresponding Campsite.

ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT/ GUARDIAN OVER THE AGE OF 25. THIS IS BOTH FOR CAMPING AND THE FESTIVAL SITE.

Can I buy my Festival Ticket during the Pre-Sale and my Camping Pass later?

Yes, you can buy a Camping Pass at a later date; however, if you choose to do this – you will pay for shipping twice (one for your Festival Ticket and then again for your Camping Pass).

More importantly, camping is only available while supplies last. If camping sells out, you will not be able to purchase a Camping Pass – so we highly encourage fans to purchase everything at their earliest convenience to ensure the festival experience of their choice!

What if the people I’m camping with are arriving at different times?

You’ll need to show up with the people you are camping with and all enter the campgrounds together. You may have to meet up elsewhere to drive in together, but everyone camping on your campsite needs to arrive together.


Are there assigned camping spots?

Campsites will be assigned upon arrival.

How do I receive my Camping Wristbands?

Remember, one camping space accommodates up to 6 people. So, the person who purchases the camping spot will receive the camping wristbands in the mail. If you did not purchase the Camping Pass, make sure to link up with your friend that did! You will all need to arrive together when coming to Cal Jam 17 Music Festival and entering the campgrounds. If you have more than 6 in your group you will need to purchase an additional Camping Pass.

Festival Tickets, Parking Pass and Camping Wristbands (if you purchased one) will be mailed to the purchaser. Your Festival Ticket is separate from your camping wristband.

What happens after you receive everything in the mail?
READ YOUR PACKET THOROUGHLY!!!

Bring everything in your packet with you! Put on your CAMPING wristband(s), hang your Parking Pass on YOUR REARVIEW MIRROR and don’t forget your FESTIVAL Tickets. Once you arrive at Cal Jam 17 Music Festival, the signs and staff will direct you to the campgrounds.

Do we have to buy a Parking Pass?

No – Camping packages include space for ONE car or RV within a campsite. Every vehicle entering our campgrounds MUST have a camping pass. Secondary vehicles will not be allowed to enter the campgrounds but there will be auxiliary parking.

How do I know where to park at the festival?

Upon your arrival to Cal Jam 17 Music Festival you will be directed to the appropriate parking area by our parking staff. There will also be plenty of signs directing you on where to go to park.
