El Dorado County Fairgrounds, Placerville, CA
The second annual Halloween event features far more than just three chances to get costumed, groove to great music, and get a little wild under the harvest moon. The campout also takes place in a picturesque setting (at the gateway of the High Sierras), replete with running water, hot showers and colorful festival ambiance that a holiday like Halloween demands. “We have a remarkable site. The main stage area is set within an expansive natural amphitheater while the indoor late night hall, located just 100 yards away, is a 2100 person venue with plenty of room for dancing. We’re also offering multiple camping options including a really cool VIP zone set back from the main venue area in an open grassy field with perfectly clear stage site lines.” states Ryan Kronenberg from Pet Projekt, one of the producers of the event.
Early bird 3-day passes are now available for $115. The early bird ticket deadline is Monday, July 23rd. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more lineup announcements. Tickets can be shipped via USPS Priority Mail with signature required for $9.50 per order or picked up at the festival will call for no additional fee. Kids Passes are for ages 5-12, 4 & under are free. All multi-day tickets include camping.
Hosted by Railroad Earth, the great team at High Sierra Music with original partners Pet Projekt have combined to produce one of the best festival experiences in the country and quite possibly the closing festival for the 2012 outdoor concert season.
