Just a few more weeks to go until WE Fest 2017! He’s some info and reminders to help you plan and make the most of your camping experience. We’ll see you there!

Campground Access

Anyone camping or planning to visit the campgrounds must have a weekend admission ticket along with a campground access pass. If you haven’t purchased camp access, don’t wait, get yours HERE.

Early Entry & Pre-Party

Want to get the party started early? Purchase an Early Entry Pass and enter the campgrounds on Tuesday (GA Campgrounds) or Saturday and Sunday (VIP Campgrounds) to get your spot before everyone else. Then join the fun on Tuesday evening at the Barn Stage as things kick off with the official Pre-Party. All campgrounds will open for campers without Early Entry passes starting on Wednesday.


Campground Tollbooths

The Campground Tollbooths will close overnight this year. Plan to arrive before 10 PM in order to enter the campgrounds. Any campers arriving after 10 PM each night will not be allowed to enter.

Ticket Orders

All ticket orders placed before July 24th will be print-at-home tickets sent to the email associated with your account. Anyone placing an order July 24th or later will need to show a valid photo ID that matches the name on the order at the campground tollbooth or festival box office to pick up tickets.

Camping Contest

This year’s Camping Contest theme celebrates WE Fests’s 35th anniversary. Choose your favorite WE Fest performer(s) from the last 35 years and get creative! From iconic songs and lyrics, to memorable music videos, fashion and 3+ decades of hairstyles… the sky’s the limit! The judges will be making their rounds throughout each campground on Friday, August 4. Finalists will be named on Saturday, August 5th and awarded VIP tickets to WE Fest 2018, prize packs and more! Get all of the details on the WE Fest website and make sure to let the campsite staff know you’d like to be entered as you arrive.
