Camp EDC 2018 Camp Space Guidelines:

Camp EDC 2018 Alcohol Policy:

  • You must be 21+ to consume alcohol in the campground.
  • If entering with alcohol, you must present government-issued identification. Law enforcement will frequent the campground and randomly card campers seen drinking alcohol. Underage drinkers risk receiving a citation or even being arrested. 21+ campers are advised to carry their government-issued identification AT ALL TIMES.
  • Liquor is NOT permitted at all.
  • Beer and wine are OK but are limited to one case of canned beer OR up to 5 liters of boxed wine per person.
  • Glass bottles are not permitted.

Camp EDC 2018 Camping 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 into 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.
  • RVs must be Class A, B or C, ranging from 19′ to 45′.
  • Truck campers and fifth wheels are allowed, as long as they have a separate onboard generator (or you purchase a power add-on), along with an air conditioner unit that doesn’t require the vehicle to be on to operate. No refueling service will be available, so campers are advised to use their accommodations accordingly.
  • 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 onboard generator—the vehicle engine may NOT be left running.
  • All RV guests must arrive at 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 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.
