Frequently Asked Questions


Hello Everyone! We know there is a lot of excitement surrounding the continuation of the festival. We are excited too, and looking forward to seeing everyone. This year’s venue is an amazing place. It is also very different than any venue we have been at. So we would like to cover some things about the venue. 

Let’s cover the hard facts first: 

The property is on 156 acres of heavily wooded Oregon forest. There are numerous ponds, streams and creeks running directly through the property. When we visited the site in January this year the creeks were running fairly strong. If you are planning on bringing small children or toddlers, be aware that they should NOT be left unsupervised due to the water. We will be on the property in July and I expect the water levels to be lower and slower, but still running. Remember safety first.

As always, there are no dogs allowed. This was also a specific request by the owner, please leave them at home. 

NO FIRES! NO OPEN FLAMES! Camp stoves and lanterns are still allowed. 

Even though the property is heavily wooded there are some beautiful camping areas cut out by the owner. And I do mean stunningly beautiful! The caveat is you will NOT be able to drive your car to the camping spots. We will be providing transportation to the camping spot of your choice and haul all your gear there. We will have multiple shuttles running and they will be willing to drive you around till you see your perfect spot. The same service will be provided when you are ready to leave. I know this is not what some will want to do but the manicured trails and open meadow cannot support car and truck traffic. We appreciate your understanding. 

We will still be accommodating RV’s and travel trailers. They will be parked either in a designated area near the entrance or along the road on the right side. It is the best solution we have and we did not want to ban them so please work with us. 

That was the hard part, now on to the fun parts. 

For the first time ever we will have a shower house on site with hot showers for everyone! 

The wooded nature of the site also means that there will be plenty of shade no matter how hot it is. 

The music venue itself was hand built from lumber taken off the site. I know no one would ever do this but please do not carve you initials or place stickers on it. Once you see it you will understand why. Now in July there is usually no chance of rain but it that were to happen the entire crowd and band would be dry. We will be in a structure it has been built without walls to give it an open air feel. AND, there is a balcony in the venue, yes a balcony. I cannot say how much we were awed by the stage area. 

That’s it for now. We are working diligently behind the scenes even if you don’t see any post or hear any news. 

Thank You everyone, I promise this place will be a magical experience. Tell you friends, pass the word far and wide. DMF is back this year and it is going to be AMAZING!
