Come Prepared!:

Little Furthur takes place on a very rural outdoor setting for 72 straight hours. You must be prepared to camp and cope in extreme conditions for the entire duration you plan to stay. Things to make you a happy camper include a sleeping bag, tent, food, plenty to drink, backpack, extra clothes, flashlight, grill, bug spray, sun block, drums, toys, first aid and sharing & caring good vibes. Only very minimal concessions and amenities will be available on site. Do not bring fireworks, weapons, or bad attitudes. No in and out privileges from the festival site will be available.

Little Furthur is an alcohol and drug free event! You should know this is going to be an extreme experience. We strive for an environment that is fun, yet safe for all. Stupidity can not be tolerated. Sales of alcohol, controlled substances and nitrous oxide are illegal, unwise and unwelcome!

Security-parking attendants-gate personnel will all be identifiable by event staff shirts. These people are there to make the event run smoothly and most importantly to help you.

Due to the shroud of secrecy surrounding the location of the site and the fact that we don't want anyone arriving prior to noon Friday we can't release the direction information before Friday morning. And because we are on site as of Thursday without any electricity or computers or modem access we will not be able to get the directions to you via this website or the internet. You will need to call one of the following voicemails to get direction information. Good luck, drive safe and see you on the other side...
