Are You Festival Ready?

less is more

Swamp Fox Love Fest is all about spreading peace, love and sharing the groove.  We would like to make sure that all festival attendees have the absolute best time possible by being prepared.  Please be sure to evaluate everything you plan to bring with you.  Remember less is more.  Bring only the essentials.  Leave your area better than you found it (which is profound advice at festivals and life in general!). If you have questions not addressed in this article, please check our FAQ or contact us. 

If you are interested in helping us keep it clean, please fill out the Volunteer Application form to be part of the Green Team.

what not to bring

  • Too much stuff so you can’t take it home again
  • Please don’t bring gazebos – they take up valuable tent space in the campsites plus an awful lot of them get left behind. We’d also rather you didn’t put tape around your enclosure of tents, please. It makes it harder for other people to get to their tents
