What You Should and Should Not Bring

Regardless of what ticket you choose, it is important to know what you should and should not bring. Many festivals are becoming more strict on what gets through the gates to improve the safety of those at the festival. No outside food, cans, or glass bottles are allowed. You may bring your own empty water bottle up to one liter in size. Most festivals are banning backpacks unless they are clear or are hydration packs. Grizzly fest will allow bags that measure 14″ X 14″ or less and include 2 or less pockets. Hydration packs are also included as long as they are empty upon entry of the festival. Clear bags are not required but strongly recommended.
