Big Dub Music Festival Camping: Your Ultimate Guide to an Unforgettable Experience

As the countdown to Big Dub Music Festival begins, anticipation surges among bass heads, headbangers, and camping festival enthusiasts alike. With the promise of a week-long adventure filled with electrifying beats and unforgettable moments, it's time to delve into the essential details to ensure your camping experience at Big Dub is nothing short of extraordinary. 

At Big Dub, the choice of campsite sets the stage for your festival experience. Whether you crave the pulsating energy of the Main Camp, the tranquility of Hilltop Camp, or the balance found at New Camp, each option caters to diverse preferences. If you’re looking to be in the heart of it all, Main Camp is for you with vibrant stages and bustling activities just steps away.

This area is 100% shaded and is where you will have access to the showers and flushing restrooms. Of note, it is the loudest campsite with festivities happening all night, but nothing some good quality earplugs can’t fix! Be sure to hop on into the Catalina Wine Mixer pop-up party that Friday at Stone Circle. If you’re looking to fulfill your teenage emo-phase craze, check out the Annual Emo Night at the Pavilion to sing along to all your favorite emo anthems. Cool down from the heat at the Sideling Hill Creek for the Swim Party at Hemlock Hole! Of course, be safe and respect your environment and this beautiful Earth as you enjoy the elements responsibly. 

Meanwhile, Hilltop Camp offers a serene retreat amidst nature, ideal for those seeking respite after a day of festivities. With Hilltop being mostly field camping, you’ll be able to get that festival glow from the sunshine. At night, enjoy the mountain views and gaze at the starry night sky. This will be the quietest campsite but still just a 5-7 minute walk to all the stages in Main Camp. Big Dub will also have a free shuttle that takes you from Hilltop to Main Camp during peak days and hours for when your legs need some rest.

For a blend of both worlds, opt for New Camp. New camp has shaded and semi-shaded areas, is less noisy at night compared to Main Camp, and is a brief walk across the Rainbow Bridge to the stages. New Camp spots get snagged early on, so if you want to camp here, I’d recommend arriving at the festival on Tuesday or Wednesday. More time to set up camp and more time for fun activities! 

For those inclined towards a stress-free experience, Big Dub offers tent glamping sites, ensuring a seamless arrival with pre-equipped sleeping arrangements. Whether you opt for a traditional tent, a cozy glamping bungalow, or the simplicity of a hammock beneath the stars, make sure your shelter provides ample protection from the elements and enough space for you and your fellow festival-goers to unwind. You'll need a cozy haven to retreat to after a long day of dancing. 

Big Dub isn't just about the music or the camping; it's a canvas for self-expression. Big Dub embraces and encourages individuality in a judgment-free environment. With that being said, if you need some guidance on what to wear to the festival, Big Dub has attire themed days to inspire your festival looks! Dress up as your favorite TV/movie character on Thursday for Cosplay Day. Funk it up for Friday Night Fever with disco vibes and 70s & 80s theme. Let your spirit animal roam free on Saturday for Into the Wild Day! And when comfort takes precedence, prioritize lightweight, breathable clothing to navigate the festival's dynamic atmosphere with ease.

 As you prepare for your journey to Big Dub Music Festival, armed with this comprehensive guide, you're poised to embark on an unforgettable adventure. From selecting your ideal campsite to curating your festival wardrobe, every detail contributes to crafting memories that will last a lifetime. Whether you find yourself lost in the pulsating energy of Main Camp or immersed in the tranquil beauty of Hilltop Camp, Big Dub promises an experience that transcends the ordinary. So, pack your essentials, embrace the rhythm of the music, and get ready to write your own chapter in the storied legacy of Big Dub Music Festival!
