Land Rush Preregistration

PREREGISTRATION: 8AM Monday, July 1 – Sunday, July 7

(This process is NOT required for camping at the Walnut Valley Festival and should be ignored by any patrons who do not wish to take part in BOTH Lineup AND Land Rush)

You may preregister for Land Rush by prepaying WVF rough camping fees for 1 camping spot ($225 + service fees) per transaction. This fee covers camping without electricity for Walnut Valley for 15 days (September 7 – 21) at $15 per day. Electricity is not available during preregistration but will be available to purchase upon arrival to grounds.

At the time of preregistration, you will be able to select an available row or the system will assign you to the earliest available (see first note below): A-D for West, A-H for Pecan. This Row will be noted on your receipt email which will come from ETIX. All rows will have 50 spots available per campground.

We will take preregistrations by mail-in forms as well, but you will be placed in the earliest row remaining when we enter your registration in the system. Mail-in registrations must be postmarked from June 28- July 7 to be accepted and will be entered into the system in the order received. Completed forms may also be dropped off at our office during regular business hours (M-F: 9am-12pm, 1pm-5pm) while preregistration is open. Please note that no mail or walk-in registrations will be entered before 1pm on July 1.

In early August, preregistered campers will receive a message (by email if provided, by regular mail for others) with their Row Assignment Form and more specific instructions including their assigned time for Lineup on September 7. THIS FORM MUST BE PRINTED BEFORE ARRIVAL AND DISPLAYED PROMINANTLY AT LINEUP. Be sure to verify that is on your email’s safe sender list to ensure delivery.

Land Rush Preregistration Begins July 1 at 8am

If you wish to take part in Lineup and Land Rush, but do not wish to preregister, you may do so by simply showing up before Land Rush to pay your fees and proceed into the staging areas for West or Pecan Grove campgrounds. Campers who did not preregister will be processed at the Ticket Trailer beginning at 2pm on Saturday, September 7. The Ticket Trailer will be open daily from 8am-6pm between Lineup and Land Rush and will remain open overnight on Wednesday, September 11 to accommodate those arriving for Land Rush.

Also, many campers arrive after the completion of Land Rush, and are happy with the camping area they are able to secure. The process continues well after festival has begun, and there are generally spots to be found to set up your camp somewhere in the campgrounds. Sites close to electric, however, can fill up quickly once festival begins.
