This event is being held at Florida Sand Music Ranch (formerly called Sertoma Youth Ranch), an 80-acre, wooded retreat located in Brooksville, Florida. Experience the camping festival vibes, but with the convenience of hot showers and indoor bathroom facilities. Set up your tent in our primitive area or bring an RV or camper and hook up with water and electric service. There is also a propane refilling tank and dump station for your convenience. Campfires are allowed in proper receptacles. We welcome well-behaved, domestic pets on a leash.

We know times are hard! While we offer many volunteer opportunities in exchange for a free GA ticket, volunteer opportunities require doing 8 hours of shift work. If you're experiencing hardship but aren't down for 8 hours of volunteer work, we are willing to meet you halfway: You do 4 hours of volunteer work, in exchange for a VERY inexpensive GA ticket. If you're interested in this option, please get in touch using our Contact form at the bottom of the page and let us know what your situation is, and what kind of volunteer work you're willing to do.
