Frequently Asked Questions:

What about lodging? Parking?  That information is on the details page here.

Are volunteers needed for the event?  Yes! We would love to hear from you if you’d like to volunteer at the festival. There are a number of unique and fun volunteer positions to choose from that will get you admission and a t-shirt. You’ll work about half the day and have the other half to play on your own. Send an email to laugh@laughingstockdesign.com if interested, and we’ll keep you updated on our needs.

Will this event sell out? Probably not, as Bayfront is a big park. However, we highly recommend getting tickets in advance to avoid the line at the ticket office. And it helps us to add events as the event gets closer, as well as distribute more free tickets to those in the community who would otherwise be unable to attend.

Where do I get tickets? We’ll have a link set up soon on the ticket page. With your individual ticket, you can proceed straight to the main gate (avoid lines at the ticket office) and your paper ticket will be scanned there for admission. Stay tuned to the tickets page for details.

Will the music acts and other activities be awesome? Yes, every single one of them. And great for the whole family. You don’t want to miss any portion of the festival!

Is Cloud Cult the greatest band in the world? All things considered, from respect for people and our planet to quality of musicianship and their message… yes. Indeed, Cloud Cult is quite possibly the greatest band in the world.

General Admission = open seating? Yes. Bring your blanket and/or camp chair with consideration to others (nothing obnoxious like a huge umbrella blocking everyone behind you). Set up camp in front of the main stage for awhile. Move to the tent stage for a change of scenery or some shade. Mostly, just relax and enjoy wherever you’d like.

Can I bring my dog to the festival?  Unfortunately, due to safety and security reasons, dogs and other pets can’t be allowed into the festival.

What else is NOT allowed?  Chaise or tanning loungers, play pens, video cameras or recording devices of any kind, pro cameras, coolers, cans, glass bottles, outside food & beverages, bicycles, skateboards, and inline skates. Unapproved vending, fireworks and laser pointers/pens will get you in the most trouble here. Disrespect and grumpiness will attract the most negative energy from security and event officials.

What CAN I bring?  A positive attitude, smiles, maybe a few hugs. One personal lawn or camp chair per person, a point and shoot camera, a plastic bottle of water as long as it’s factory sealed or empty, blankets, beach towels, yoga mats, infant/toddler strollers and maybe ear plugs for the little ones. Small to medium sized backpacks are fine and fanny packs are funny. All packs will be inspected at the gate. Plan for the weather, as this is a rain or shine event.

How about my foam cheesehead hat? No. Well… okay. If you must.
