Where is General, Treble and Rhythm and Sundown Camping located? How can I ensure I get to camp with my friends?

General Camping is located at our previously known Mid and Bass Campgrounds, which are located on the festival site. Tent spaces are allocated in a first-in-first serve basis, so make sure that when you check-in at the festival, that you round up your mates together to ensure you are located in the same area.

Treble Camping is located on the outskirts of the festival site, no more than 5 minutes walk. Close location to the festival car parks.

Rhythm Camping, which is located in the beautiful and historic Rhythm arena, opposite the Tepee and Glamping village.

Our final campground is Sundown camping located opposite Treble Camp and Premium Camping. Right on the doorstep of the entry into Rhythm and Vines festival site and super conveniently close to Sundowners Camp Bar.

You will be required to pitch your tent when you arrive in the allocated campground. After which, you can access the other campgrounds (apart from Premium Camping facilities) to visit friends.

Is there Premium Camping this year?

Premium Camping is now SOLD OUT. This year, if you are wanting a more premium camping experience, we recommend you purchase your 3 Day Vintage Club Premium Pass + Premium Camping.
