Camping Rules and Regulations
You must have a weekend pass to camp.
You must be a registered camper to access the campground.
Only 1 camping unit per site.
Safety and Courtesy:
NO open fires, tiki torches or open flame. Candles or lamps must be in fireproof containers. We are in a dry grassy pasture…use a container for your butts! If you have propane stove (inside RV or outside) or a propane firepit you MUST bring a fire extinguisher. MusicFest reserves the right to call a full fire ban on all propane firepits at anytime.
Ensure guidelines and structures do not block fire lanes.
NO drum circles, amplified music or canned music are permitted ANYWHERE at ANYTIME in the campground.
NO pets are permitted anywhere in the campgrounds or on the Festival Site.
Campers must remove their own garbage and recycling throughout the weekend and take to central waste stations. Please keep your camping space clean and community minded.
You are responsible for the safety and security of your belongings at MusicFest. Leave your toys at home, lock up your valuables, and secure your food and beverages.
Campers who do not demonstrate care for self, care for others and care for the festival WILL be asked to leave or be removed from the campground and have camping passes revoked without refund. Camping at VIMF is a privilege. Dangerous or obnoxious behaviour will NOT be tolerated.
ALL CAMPERS ARE TO REMAIN IN THE CAMPGROUND UNTIL MONDAY JULY 15th. ONCE YOU ARE IN YOU ARE IN.
WE CANNOT SAFELY MOVE TRAILERS OR VEHICLES FROM WITHIN THE CAMPGROUND DURING THE EVENT.
ONLY REGISTERED LOCKUP VEHICLES ARE TO REMAIN IN YOUR CAMPSITE. ALL OTHER
VEHICLES MUST BE REMOVED.
MUSICFEST DOES NOT HAVE SERVICED SITES. THERE ARE NO POWER OR SEWER
Disabled Access Campsites are available on a first come first serve basis online. You must have a valid Sparc Card or Access 2 number or call our office at 250 334 1634.
Camping prices are based on unit! Your camping unit may only be 21 ft however it will fall into the 20-40 ft category. You can not buy a 20-40 ft space and then put up a secondary tent for other occupants. All occupants registered in your camping unit must be residing in your camping unit with you.
Campsites are limited to 6 persons and assigned an ID #. If you have more than 6 campers with you – you will be asked to purchase and register a second site.
Campers can register and reserve an adjacent site (bring your own tarps or tape) but they must pay the fee in full and leave FULL NAMES at the Camping Box Office. If you wish to reserve space on the early arrival all sites must have an early arrival ticket whether they are present that day or not. Latecomers must supply ID to claim their wristbands.
All sleeping structures and shelters must display an ID numbered camping tag or they will be removed.
Family Camping and Quiet Camping:
VIMF offers a special area dedicated for campers who want to camp in a family friendly zone. This area is available on a first come first serve basis and is intended to create a gentle mellow space for our campers who don’t do the “full on all night jammin’ till the sun comes up”.
Please keep in mind that this is a campground with thousands of campers. Vancouver Island MusicFest can make NO guarantees regarding totally quiet and peaceful night’s sleep. This is a
festival and music and merriment will be made. Please remember to bring ear plugs…a cheap and easy solution for all ages!! We have them for sale as well.
All ages are warmly welcome, however minors camping (under 19 yrs of age) MUST be accompanied and supervised by an adult aged 25 or older unless they are with a legal guardian.
In addition, there is a limit of 4 minors per adult who will be held responsible for the actions of the minors under their care.
Underage campers cannot register to camp or receive a wristband without the being accompanied by an adult. That adult must be camping WITH THEM for the weekend. We reserve the right to ask for proof of age. Bring your ID.
Aggressive, loud or disrespectful behaviour and drunkenness will not be tolerated. Disregard for these guidelines will result in you being asked to leave (or removed by security or RCMP) from the campground.
Tow vehicles for RVs must be removed from the campground. There is free parking available for tow vehicles.
Maximum one secure lock up or sleeping vehicle permitted per tent site. Additional parking is available in a designated area near the campground for $40.00+tax. ALL VEHICLES MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE CAMPGROUND AFTER SETUP UNLESS IT IS A SECURE LOCKUP FOR YOUR TENT. PURCHASING EXTRA PARKING DOES NOT ENTITLE YOU TO KEEP YOUR
VEHICLE IN THE CAMPGROUND.
No vehicles are permitted in or out of the Campground while the festival is running. Once you’re in – you’re in!
