- Bring Your Own Forest Camp

- Wooden Cottage Village
The ‘Beachfront Camp & Retreat’ is on a beautiful forested river front stretch within the festival site with amazing vides of the ITanda Waterfalls and sunsets over the river. The campsite is about a 5 minute walk along the river from the Main stage, yet far away enough to have peace & quiet from the music. The campsite is in full shade from the trees so yo can sleep comfortable during the day.
