Frequently Asked Questions


Can I put up an EZ-up or canopy tent on the main stage field during the festival?

Yes, but we ask that you put it up on the back half of the field.  As per past Sirens, this is considered behind the soundboard.  Sirens staff reserves the right to help organize field tents should there be any confusion.  Please be respectful of your fellow patrons' sight lines.

Is camping allowed?

Yes. Saturday night (6/18) only at the High Country Fairgrounds.  Campers must be on their way by 12 noon Sunday.  Suggested donation for camping is $10.*

Can I have a campfire at my tent site?

Absolutely not.  No open fires are allowed at the Fairgrounds.  Thanks for asking.

What's the deal with parking?

Day parking is adjacent to the fairgrounds.  Suggested donation for parking is $5.*

Do I have to pay admission for young people?

Children 12 years old and younger, accompanied by a parent or guardian, may attend Sirens on the Mountain for free.

May I bring my dog?

No. No pets are allowed at the High Country Fairgrounds OR in the parking lot.  Please make other arrangements for your furry friends.

Can I record the performances?

We encourage sharing music, but some artists may have restrictions on live recordings.  In general, audio recordings are allowed, video recordings are not.  We will inform you of any further requests or restrictions.

Will food and drink be available?

Once again, local vendors will be on site offering up delicious fresh food, including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options.  Details will follow in the coming weeks.    There will be water stations on site.
