Lineup & Land Rush Information

WE’VE HEARD YOU

In an attempt to eliminate a trip to Winfield for many of you and reduce your costs associated with the festival, we are eliminating Number Day. That date will now simply designate when WVF fees begin and when the Ticket Trailer starts being open 12 hours a day.

Picking A Campsite
Lining Up For Land Rush

Preregistration Open July 1 - 10, 2022!

You may preregister for Land Rush by prepaying WVF rough camping fees for 1 camping spot ($225) or a maximum of 2 ($450) per transaction. This fee covers 15 days (September 3-17) of camping without electricity. Electricity is not available during preregistration, but will be available to purchase upon arrival to grounds. You may preregister online beginning at 8am on July 1.  At the time of preregistration a timestamp will be used to place you in the queue and then assign you to a row, A-F.  We will take preregistrations by mail-in forms (postmarked June 28- July 9), but your place in the queue will depend on when we process your order. Completed registrations may also be dropped off at our office (918 Main, Winfield) during regular business hours (M-F: 9:00a-12:00p, 1:00p-5:00p) while preregistration is open. No registrations from mail-in forms or walk-ins will be processed before 1pm on July 1.

After July 31, you will receive a form (by email if provided, by regular mail for others) notifying you of which row you need to line up in starting August 27, along with more specific instructions for Lineup. This form MUST be printed ahead of time and displayed in your vehicle when you arrive on grounds. Be sure to verify that hq@wvfest.com is on your email’s safe sender list to ensure delivery.

Please Note

  • While preregistering early does improve your chances of being in the first rows, it is not guaranteed. For example, in 2021, Rows A, B, & C were filled in less than 10 minutes.
  • To assist with keeping the process running as smoothly as possible upon arrival to grounds, please ensure that all information on the preregistration form is accurate for the person who will be receiving the permit before submitting. WVA may be unable to accommodate repeated requests to update/correct/transfer information.
  • Do Not Preregister unless you intend to take part in BOTH Lineup AND Land Rush.

Lineup: Saturday, August 27
Starting At 7am

Arrival times will be staggered based on your row. When you receive your Row Assignment form, you will also receive information indicating what time you should arrive and providing additional instructions for Lineup. Your Row Assignment form should be prominently displayed in the windshield of your vehicle when you arrive. Upon entry, campers will be separated into Pecan and West and directed to park in a zone corresponding to their row. This is where you will remain until Land Rush, and you may put down tarps to save your spot. Camping permits and parking stickers will also be available to pick up at this time for any campers who arrive in the vehicle they want them on IF their name is the one on the registration. Note that you must pay camping fees, FOR EACH SPOT, upon arrival through September 2 to City of Winfield, and the receipt copy from your City of Winfield yellow camping envelope should be placed together with your row form on your vehicle(s) or tarp(s) holding your place in line.

If you have not preregistered, you should arrive at 1pm, and enter from the 14th Street entrance to the area behind the Horse Barn.  WVA personnel will be present to assist campers in parking.

After parking in zones, ALL campers (preregistered or not) must proceed to the designated pre-pay station in Barn 4 (contest stage) on grounds to pay their City of Winfield (and WVF for those who did not preregister) camping fees and receive their required Land Rush hang tag. Anyone hooked up to electric in line must also pay both the City of Winfield and WVF electric fees at this time. If not yet hooked up, campers may choose to pay their electric fees now or when they return for Land Rush.

Assigning of Land Rush Numbers

Please Note

  • Everyone participating in Lineup will have to pay the City of Winfield Fees ($5/day without electric, $17/day with electric) upon arrival through September 2.

Lineup Continues Through
August 31

Those who arrive after the initial lineup, up to and including on August 31, will be directed to park in the Zone corresponding to their assigned Row.
