Make a group camps or be part of community camps like for Solos, Families, Women, Sober, etc). Camping is very organized, and broken down into Plazas this year (replacing Pods) for the community to gather & enjoy the scene, as well as access amenities (like toilets and showers… you know, necessary things). No matter where you’re camped, you’ll have a Plaza nearby which is your landmark. It’s a positive vibe, diverse crowd, and festival goers follow the Bonnaroovian Code (respect, positivity, harmony).

What’s the main complaint about festivals??
The restrooms – AKA – Portapotties. It’s no lie that bathrooms at festivals are unsanitary to say the least! They are used by thousands of people a day and not cleaned and sanitized enough! Some of these June festivals have really stinky, sauna like facilities – others you wake up to start your morning with a portapotty filled with yuck from the night before, SO…
