WHILE AT THE FESTIVAL

  • 40353632_DSC_0330KIDS ACTIVITIES: We call our children’s area, the “Kids’ Coop.” Festival weekend will be packed with fun activities for the whole family. Music, art, crafts, and games is just the short list. The Kids’ Coop schedule for music and workshops will be printed in the RW10 festival program. We love being able to provide a safe place for your little festival goers to play but please maintain constant supervision. Do not leave your children alone anywhere on the festival site. Make sure your name and phone number is clearly written on their admission wristband. If you are missing your child, report to the Kids’ Coop and notify a staff member. If we find an unattended child who’s lost their way, we’ll escort them to the Kids’ Coop. (Learn more about the Kids’ Coop HERE).
  • FOOD/BEVERAGE: We will have a great variety of yummy food vendors. Feel free to prepare your own meals at your campsite as well. We’ll have free bottle filling stations for water in the festival viewing areas and in campgrounds. Bring a bottle! An excellent selection of craft beer and wine will be available near our stage areas. Valid photo identification is required to purchase adult beverages. You are allowed to bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages into the music viewing areas, but you cannot bring your own alcohol.
  • SHOWERS: VIP ticket holders AND GA ticket holders will have access to showers on-site! VIP Showers are free of charge. There will be a $5 fee-per-shower at the GA Shower Trailer on GA Camping Ridge.
  • FIRST AID/EMERGENCY/SAFETY: First Aid will be provided on-site by trained medical friends. They will be part of our team of medical/emergency/security professionals on site at all hours. We’ll provide help for any medical issue you may have but please bring along any materials needed for preexisting conditions. If you have a medical condition or allergy we should know about, please stop by the first-aid tent. We ask that you report any hazardous situations to our festival staff. We will be trained in what to do during an emergency. In the event of site-wide emergency, please listen for instructions.
