Camping Terms and Conditions

Camping Terms and Conditions and Festival Terms and Conditions work in conjunction. Please ensure you adhere to both for a safe and enjoyable TeslaFest!

1. The Festival site is a GLASS FREE ZONE. Please make sure glass is not brought into the Sleepy Hollow Campground.

2. Camp sites are allocated on arrival. Sites are allocated on arrival by our Camp Wardens. You are not able to save space for friends. If intending to camp with friends you must all arrive together in a convoy.

3. Camping tickets are sold per person. You cannot share your camping ticket with other people. Camping tickets are exchanged for wristbands which are non transferable and must be worn at all times for the duration of TeslaFest.

4. Camping tickets are separate to festival tickets. You’ll need to purchase a festival ticket and camping ticket. You cannot purchase a camping ticket without a festival ticket. Your tickets must also compliment each other; i.e. Friday Night Camping and Saturday Festival Entry or Weekend Camping and Weekend Festival Entry.

5. Overnight campers must arrive after 1:30pm on Friday or after 4:30pm on Saturday. Weekend campers must arrive after 1:30pm on Friday. 

6. If arriving with a caravan, camper, RV, Winnebago etc you must arrive after 12:30pm on Friday for Weekend Camping only. Unfortunately we cannot accept large vehicles for overnight camping as there will not be enough room to maneuver your rig into the camp grounds over the weekend.

You must have your camp site packed down and stowed in your vehicle before gates open on at 10am on Sunday.

7. Keep your individual camp sites to a reasonable size with minimal spread. Don’t bring a 10 person tent for 2 people.
