  • Is camping included in my ticket?
    Camping is included in the price of your ticket. All cars parking in GA Camping/Day Lot will need to purchase a GA Car Pass (per vehicle, not per person). We also have camping upgrades available: Preferred Car Camping, Glamping, RV Rentals, and RV Passes. These upgrades do not require a GA Car Pass.
  • What else happens besides music?
    Secret Dreams is a MUSIC and ARTS festival! There will be a gallery of national artists with pieces on display and for sale, with live painting at the stages and throughout the venue. Yoga classes and workshops covering a variety of topics each day, Art Installations throughout the venue, games and activities, and lots of fun things across the venue to get wrapped up in!
  • Are outside food and beverages allowed?
    Yep, but we won’t be selling alcohol this year. So… B.Y.O.B., homie! Food vendors will also be providing food for everyone - meat options, vegetarian and vegan, gluten-free, etc. Ask each vendor about their specific offerings. NO GLASS containers of any kind. Please keep in mind that underage drinking is against the law and not allowed. Ask everyone for their ID before sharing, never judge a book (or person) by their cover!
  • What about the weather? Do y’all control the rain?
    If you were there last year, well, you know we do not.
  • At what age do my kids need tickets?
    Kids 10 and up need tickets.
  • Will there be any secret things happening throughout the event?
    Keep your eyes peeled and your ears unclogged, and you might just find yourself in the middle of something you never expected!
  • Can I sell my own merch at your festival?
    You may purchase a "walking vendor" pass only available at the box office to sell homemade crafts and small items. Walking Vendors will not be allowed to sell within the venue, only in the surrounding campgrounds. As the "walking vendor" name implies, this pass does not allow for full vending setups. We will not allow any unofficial "Secret Dreams" branded items to be sold on the grounds. If we see you attempting to sell prints or anything else with the logo, brand name, etc. THEY WILL BE CONFISCATED. A lot of artists worked hard to make the merch we have available, come check it out! If you have a cool merch idea, feel free to contact us for consideration on future events.
