NO PETS. NO FIRES OR OPEN FLAME OF ANY KIND. NO UNDERAGE DRINKING.
GIVE LOTS OF HIGH-FIVES
Do It Ourselves Fest is held at Camp Krem, 102 Brook Lane, Boulder Creek, California 95006 (see map)... one of the most beautiful places on earth, and we love keeping it that way. Camping at DIO Fest is on a first come first served basis. There are no designated camping spots, but rather an open forest and mountain top for us all to share. We ask that, in true DIO fashion, everyone make space for their neighbors and respect each other as fellow DIO Fest creators.
After you ride the shuttle up to the festival grounds and check in at the box office, DIO Fest staff will be happy to help you find the best camping spot. We'll have different areas for different folks, like a family area, late-night jammers area, and more.
If you are seeking the family camping area, please let them know at the box office as you receive your wristband. A DIO staff member will be there to direct you to the family campsite. There may or may not be a prerequisite high five.
Follow the Golden Rule
Keep in mind that we're all sharing the space together, so please follow the golden rule and we'll all have a great time. Treat others as you’d like to be treated - be mindful of how much space you take up and how loud you are at night.
That said, this is a music festival so expect folks to be jamming, dancing, and listening to music all over the grounds at most hours of the day.
There’s definitely a number of feral camping spots further from the festival grounds. If you'd like to camp a little further away from the main sites, bring a pack and ask a DIO Fest staff member to direct you to the backpacker's trails.
Feel free to contact us to learn more about the backpackers camping spots before the festival as well.
Camp Krem features most of the amenities you'd find at a full-service summer camp, including: potable water, running toilets, a swimming pool, shade structures, an industrial kitchen, and an auditorium.
There are several other hotels and campgrounds in and around Boulder Creek. If you choose to stay in one of them, you can simply arrive to our shuttle location in the morning, hop on our free shuttle, and catch a ride up to the festival!
We have limited on-site cabin space available for rent as well. Please feel free to contact us for more details. Thanks Friends!
