Festivals are a place to let loose and have fun, but self-care is important in order to ensure that you have a good time. The following list is a guide for what to bring to make sure your Harvest is a positive experience. Please take good care of yourself at all times and ensure that you are protected from the elements: use sunscreen and protective clothing, stay in the shade, drink enough water, eat enough to keep yourself going and get some sleep (yes, you can sleep at the festival!). Water is available for free; ice is available for purchase at the general store. Food vendors offer meals and snacks on site. EMS and security are available 24 hours per day. Take good care of yourself and those around you and most importantly, HAVE FUN!
If you want to arrive early to get a head start on your camp spot, you may enter the grounds after 6pm on Thursday July 13 for an early entrance fee. During the event free re-entry is permitted with a wristband. But, why don't you just stick around? We're awesome. The front gate re-opens on Friday July 14 at 11am.
Family Camping is a home-away-from-home for the family that likes to festival. It is located close to the festival grounds, food vendors, showers, toilets, playground and security. Close proximity to amenities makes it easier for families to make quick trips back to camp if needed. The family camping area is also the best spot for RVs due to there being ample flat ground in this area. It should be noted that this space is situated in close proximity to the stages, which will be playing music late into the evening and morning. Most parents report, however, that their little ones are tuckered out from all the fun and activities of the day that they tend to sleep regardless. Quieter campsites are available but are located much deeper into the campground and are a further walk from amenities. Families are welcome to camp in the family campground, quieter zone or anywhere they feel most comfortable! For more information check out our Family Planning Guide.
Astral Harvest cares for the Earth and strives to become greener each year.
The festival has made some great changes that allow us to become better stewards of the sacred land we are so blessed to use.
We are not able to do these great things without your continued help! One of the best ways that you can give back to the hard-working organizers, volunteers and landowners is to help maintain and even regenerate the land!
Astral Harvest values the intention of caring for the land we all hope to visit for many years to come. Our Green Initiatives are put in place to help protect our long-term vision to respect the place many of us call "home". This season we are continuing our core value: All food and drinks must only be served using compostable or reusable dishes and cutlery. Eventually, we hope to do more composting and to become a fully, "Leave a Regenerative Trace" festival.
