Packing List, Rules, Directions & Carpooling

Welcome to FloydFest 2020~Vision Quest! We love you, and we can’t wait to see you again.

Our mission is to be the best music festival experience of our time; to sell a limited quantity of tickets to the highest-quality event experience, bar none, celebrating music, art and life in an intimate, visually stunning environment.

To help achieve this mission, this website contains elaborations on the ticket types and festival logistics needed for you to make the most of your magical and musical mountain experience.

Listed below are the basic rules of FloydFest 2020~Vision Quest. They are few and simple, yet extremely important to us and to the overall FloydFest experience. Help us police their observance, so we can make this more than just a festival — let’s make this our FloydFest.

FloydFest Rules

  • No weapons
  • No outside alcohol (FloydFest features multiple beer and wine gardens, where adult beverages are sold for a reasonable price. Coolers will be searched; outside alcohol will be confiscated.)
  • No drugs (Those found in possession of illegal substances will be immediately turned over to police.)
  • No dogs on the festival site, campgrounds, or in parking lots
  • No open-air fires (small gas stoves are allowed)
  • No glass
  • No wristband, no admittance (Violation is trespassing and subject to eviction and arrest.)
  • No frowning

(Purchasers of Across-the-Way Productions, Inc. tickets voluntarily assume all risks and dangers incidental to any event for which tickets are issued and waive all claims against the event sponsor, the owner of the facility, the ticket producer or issuer. Admission is subject to compliance with all laws and facility rules and the ticket holder consents to reasonable examinations and searches to ensure compliance. Failure to comply with the law or facility rules may result in refusal of admission or expulsion. No unauthorized recording of event where prohibited. No refunds or exchanges.)
