Where To Camp & What Admission To Buy
Big Dub has three camping areas which all have their own individual ticket type. These ticket types only dictate where your place your tent. You are free to roam around the festival and visit each of the sites during your time on the mountain. Each camping area has a specific capacity which must be adhered to in order for us to properly control capacity, avoid overcrowding, and properly control traffic.
While we are a five day long festival, you can arrive on any day! Arrival dates later in the week are good for those who are on a budget. If possible, we recommend the Tuesday or Wednesday arrival as it allows you to experience all of the lesser-known elements of Big Dub, as well as become engrained in the community and our way of life.
CAMPING AREAS EXPLAINED
Main Camp: Located at the heart festival, these camping spaces are right near all of the main stages! Patrons choose this because it is in the heart of the action. Main Camp does not offer car camping as an option nor is there anywhere to park your car within the camp. Main Camp attendees will park in the General Parking lot which is shared with Hilltop campers and located adjacent to Hilltop. You may unload your vehicles directly at your campsite from 10am – 8:30pm on Tuesday or Wednesday but then you will drop your car off at the parking lot adjacent to Hilltop and then walk back.
New Camp: Only 60 second walk to Main Camp as it connects to Main Camp by foot bridge. It’s about 5-7 minutes walk from the bridge to any of the main stages! This campsite has it’s own check-in location separate from the regular Four Quarters check-in address. Car Camping is available via an add-on option. New Camp has a chillout stage & hammock haven as well as two camping zones: The Old Forest which is a shaded area in the woods and The Great Meadow which is an open field that has a gorgeous view of the stars. While it does have some action, it is a great place to escape the constant action of Main Camp.
Hilltop Camp: This area is also located directly next to parking for easy access to your vehicle. It is a 5-minute walk from Hilltop into Main Camp and there is a shuttle that runs during peak hours. This is also the best option for anyone who is doing Big Dub on a budget as there is significant savings in ticket price.
