Still concerned about the heat? We’ve got you covered with air-conditioned tents, showers, the Mesa pool, misting stations, and more to keep you cool.

CHECK-IN

TENT CAMPERS 

SHIPPING
If you purchase camping with your festival tickets, you will receive your tent tokens and vehicle pass(es) in your ticket box. If you purchase camping separately, your tent tokens and vehicle pass(es) will be delivered separately. If your festival and/or camping passes are being held at Will Call, just present your order number, credit card, and photo ID to pick them up at the Camp EDC box office.

ARRIVAL
Your festival wristband will be scanned upon entry, along with your vehicle decal and tent tokens. Each group member will then also be given a camping wristband — up to 4 people for Moon Glow Camping or 2 people for Desert Rose Camping. For Moon Glow group members arriving at different times, a second vehicle decal will be needed; each passenger will be given a camping wristband (up to 4 total for both vehicles).

TENT DEPOSIT
Upon check-in, one person from each EDC tent camping group must present a credit card with a matching valid photo ID. A temporary $250 hold will be placed on the credit card until the tent and equipment are inspected upon checkout. You are responsible for any and all damages to the tent and equipment while in your possession and any repair costs and/or excessive cleaning costs incurred as a result of your use of the tent and equipment.

PARKING & SEARCH
Once you have parked, take your belongings to the camping entrance, where a thorough search will be conducted. Campers will be allowed in/out privileges to their parked vehicles and will be searched again upon re-entry. No vehicle movement will be permitted once parked. Vehicles that leave the parking lot after being scanned will not be allowed re-entry to the parking lot.

TENT CAMPSITES
Once searched, you will be directed to your campsite, where you will turn in your token for access into your tent (all tents will be pre-locked). You must then fasten your own two travel-size locks to your tent.

GROUP CAMPING
If you and another group of token holders arrive together, you may be assigned adjacent campsites. “Saving spots” is not allowed, and tents will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. Please plan accordingly!

CAMPSITE POLICIES

TENT CAMPING

  • Upon check-in, one person from each EDC tent camping group must present a credit card with a matching valid photo ID. A temporary $250 hold will be placed on the credit card until the tent and equipment are inspected upon checkout. You are responsible for any and all damages to the tent and equipment while in your possession and any repair costs and/or excessive cleaning costs incurred as a result of your use of the tent and equipment.
  • Each campsite will feature a 4-port USB strip in which to plug their electronic devices. For any additional accessories that need to be plugged in to a standard electrical outlet, charging stations will be provided in the Mesa, as well as near the shower compounds.
  • Each tent will be provided with enough power to sustain operation for the air-conditioning unit and USB strip. Unplugging either the air conditioner or the USB power plug and connecting an external item runs the risk of overloading the circuit, posing a safety hazard to the rest of the campground.
  • If a guest unplugs the air conditioner or USB strip, camping personnel reserve the right to unplug the tent from the power grid for the remainder of the festival. This is for the safety and comfort of all guests of Camp EDC.

RV CAMPING

  • Each camper must have a valid festival ticket and camping pass and must arrive ready in their RV.
  • RVs may not be dropped off or picked up by a third party.
  • You may not exceed the total permitted length of 45 feet, including tow vehicle if applicable. If you are bringing a separate vehicle or non-motorized trailer that can’t fit in the provided RV camping space, you must purchase a vehicle add-on.
  • All RVs must have a working air conditioner powered by an on-board generator — the vehicle engine may NOT be left running.
  • All RV guests must arrive to the campground with a full tank of fuel to prevent issues with air conditioning.
  • No personal generator refueling will be permitted.
  • If you have opted to purchase power, you must bring a 50–75-foot cable with the proper connector.
  • If you are connected to a 30A or 50A power supply, and your RV overloads the power source, tripping the fuse, the breaker will be reset and you will be issued a one-time warning. If it occurs a second time, your RV will be disconnected from the power grid, without a refund, for the remainder of the festival.
  • Once parked, RVs may not be moved until 9am on Monday, May 21, unless leaving the festival and not returning. If you would like to leave the campsite before the end of the weekend, please reach out to a Camp EDC staff member for an escort.
