The purchaser and/or bearer of a INDIGO FEST pass understands that they are purchasing a pass to the 2017 INDIGO FEST and not a particular artist's performance. The entire event is outdoors and weather conditions will affect the performances of all entertainers, and there is a possibility that a particular performer may not be able to perform due to weather conditions. Thus, the purchaser and/or bearer of the pass understands, acknowledges and will not expect a refund for the purchase of the pass for any talent cancellations for any reason. This also includes weather related issues. Talent line-up and schedule are subject to change at any time.

YOUR EMAILED TICKET confirmation upon entry. If you forget, upon arrival your name will listed on our entry sheet, and your wristband will be given upon arrival. Your name and purchase number will be on your ticket.

TOTEMS AND FLAGS  are allowed along with flags as long as they do not contain sharp objects or offensive content.

TENT/HAMMOCK is your "home away from home" and will be your responsibility! Not a fan of camping? Check out the cabin rental options HERE.

TARP protection is always a solid idea to put down before you set up your tent. Also, make sure you bring the top cover for your tent, in case it rains.

UMBRELLA OR PONCHO because INDIGO FEST will take place rain or shine. We try and only think positive weather vibes, always! Just in case, bring your umbrella or sexy ponchos.

BLANKETS AND PILLOWS are something you don't want to forget or you may have to spoon with a friend for the night.      

YOGA MAT, BLANKETS, CAMP CHAIRS for comfortable digs to sit on to enjoy the music vibes or if you want to join in on yoga/healing activities.

POWERED LANTERN OR FLASHLIGHT  Play it safe & bring a flashlight with you. Relying on your phone alone, isn't a good idea. (battery or solar powered lights only)

REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE Bring your own water bottle/water container for water. We will not be selling or providing anything in plastic. (recycle bins will be on site for anything you need to dispose of)

COOLER, FOOD AND WATER Be sure to bring enough snacks that will satisfy your cravings. Some food trucks will be on site. (no grills or glass bottles please)

TRASH BAGS This is a zero waste fest. Please bring a trash bag for your tent space (we will provide some as well). You will be responsible for all your own waste. Recycle bins for plastic and compost stations will be on site.

GLOW TOYS If you want to glow in the woods, bring bright lights that make you feel joy in your heart!

INSECT REPELLENT  WARNING: Mosquitoes & Ticks are real life in the woods and especially brutal this year! Be sure to spray yourself down so you don't itch.

SMOKING There will be a designated cigarette smoking area. Please do NOT throw your cigarettes on the ground. A more environment friendly solution is to roll your own cigs. (just a thought)
