515 ALIVE ON-SITE CAMPING
In 2017 we introduced camping to 515 Alive for the first time and we are thrilled to be offering it again in 2018! Camp on site and never miss any of the action! Water Works is a massive urban park directly outside of Downtown Des Moines and it's as beautiful as can be! The park itself gives off the vibe of being secluded in a music paradise but just behind the thick tree line is our beautiful downtown. It’s truly a hybrid city-festival/camping-festival. Camping allows travelers (and locals!) an easier on-site option that is much cheaper and convenient than hotels. Camping music festivals have their own cultures and tight knit communities, and we are excited to integrate that into 515 Alive once again! These spaces will be VERY limited. Camping spots will be available to less than 30% of our estimated total number of attendees. We expect to sell out of these. Festival ticket holders without camping wristbands/passes WILL NOT be able to enter camping areas at any point. Each person entering a camping area must have their own camping ticket purchased!
CAMPING IS LIMITED & 18+
INDIVIDUAL CAMPING PASSES ARE NEEDED FOR EVERYONE CAMPING
THEY ARE NOT PER SPOT, THEY ARE PER PERSON
