It’s a venue with a full bar, so just bring yourself, your identification, money for drinks, food, band / festival merchandise, and goods from our hand-picked vendors, and perhaps some sunscreen. Feel free to bring a blanket to sit on, or a fabric portable chair (not a hard folding chair). You can also bring a backpack or bag to carry your personal items and one unopened bottle of water, but keep in mind we will be selling re-usable bottles and will provide water filling stations.
If you’re camping, check out what’s allowed on the camping page.
Don’t bring anything that’s illegal in the State of Texas. If you’re not sure it’s ok to bring, it probably isn’t.
