friday / SIDE STAGE
The music of Nashville troubadour Woody Pines comes from the streets—it was on the streets as a professional busker where Woody first cut his teeth. Pines' music draws liberally from the lost back alley anthems and scratchy old 78s of American roots music, whether country blues, jugband, hokum, or hillbilly—heavy rollicking street performances are central to Woody's intensely catchy rhythms, jumpy lyrics and delirious sense of fun.

Can I bring an instrument to "jam" with others?
Yes! While there are not formally designated locations for an impromptu session, we encourage you to bring your instrument, find a spot in the park and get inspired.
ARE DOGS ALLOWED? Rain Prep?
Dogs are allowed as long as they are leashed and you clean up after your pet. Any dogs or pets that become a nuisance will be asked to leave. There is a dog park and trails are available at the park. If you are camping with a pet in the quiet area, your pet must remain leashed and quiet after 9 p.m.
Umbrellas are not allowed. If you plan for rain, please bring a rain poncho.
What should I bring?
We know you love your phone (us too). If you can only remember one thing, please remember there is extremely limited access to electricity at the park! Bring boosters/power bank chargers and arrive with phones and other devices fully charged.
Bring the basics for watching music in a field: chairs, blankets, sunscreen, bug spray, friends, dancing shoes.
Don't forget cash for vendors, food and drinks - the park does not have an ATM on site. Some vendors will take credit cards, and some will be cash-only. We recommend bringing cash just in case!
If you are camping, you can bring small coolers! (But remember they are only permitted in designated camping areas.)
Friday camping set-up times: Noon-2 p.m.
Saturday camping set-up times: 10 a.m.- noon
To minimize traffic, adhering to these times is very important!
What is included in the campsite?
Camping available is primitive only (Bear Grylls would be so proud). Every camp site is approx. 20 x 20 and is intended for one tent per 3-5 people. You won’t find electric hookups, showers or water hookups, but you will find soulful music just steps away.
Quiet time camping
The Quiet Time camping is separate from the the main camping area and festival. While not guaranteed silence, there will be a 9 p.m. curfew both nights, so this is an ideal option for families.
Regular camping is closer to the stage and some sites may have a view of the stage, subject to availability on a first-come first-serve basis. The curfew for these sites will be after the last band finishes on Friday or Saturday.
Will cars and tents be directly next to each other?
No, but they will be within walking distance.
Can I bring coolers?
Small coolers are permitted only in the tent area. Otherwise coolers are not permitted. Beer, wine, water and food will be on sale all weekend.
Can I have a fire at my campsite?
Fires are not permitted for the safety of all. This includes tiki torches or live-fire lanterns.
