Each person in your group must purchase the Early Arrival Pass to arrive at LIB on Wednesday, May 24th.

Are the Early Arrival Pass Holders allowed to camp outside of the High Grounds Campground?
The purpose of the High Grounds Camping area is for the early arrivals to have their own spacious and conveniently located campground. We're highly encouraging early arrivals to utilize this space. Upon arriving Wednesday, you will be directed to the High Grounds Camp. There is no guarantee that any other areas of the festival will be open to camping on Wednesday.
