Frequently ASked questions


What's the weather going to be like?

We're pretty sure it's going to be 1000% perfect, rain or shine.  However, the high country can get chilly at night so please bring a warm sweater, long pants, a hat, perhaps, and if you are camping....a warm sleeping bag.  

We would like you to ALSO bring: a chair, sunscreen, a flashlight, and bug repellent.  

Where do I park?

To minimize vehicle traffic on the festival field, we ask that you park along River Road and walk in.  There will be a golf cart (Fantasy Island style, 6 seater, boss!) to help shuttle you and your things from River Road onto the festival field.  Think of it like this: the only cars that drive over the bridge onto the site should be `1) ADA/Handicapped 2) Car Camping....and you ALREADY have a ticket for that (because car camping is now sold out).  Please help us reduce two way traffic by parking on the road. WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT!!!!!


NO.  Withdraw cash for all festival purchases before you come out to Todd. If you arrive without cash and need to buy something.....we can give you directions to the Food Lion in Boone where they DO have an ATM.

I heard this rumor about no cell phone service.  True?

Yeah, that's totally on point.  It will be a day of relaxation.  Your phone will never ring.  No. Cell Phone. Service.  (Sorry.) cards?

You might have guessed.  What with no ATM and no cell phone service, we can't run credit cards either.  We're working on options, but for now, Sirens on the Mountain is a cash money only event.  

What food and drinks will be available?

Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the event.  We will be selling burgers, veggie burgers, vegetarian fried rice (gluten free), chips, candy, juice boxes and bottled water.  Water stations will be available if you wish to refill your own water bottle.  Alcoholic beverages - beer and wine - will also be for sale.  Please bring your ID if you wish to drink alcohol.  

If you want to pack in a picnic, please feel free.  However, no outside alcoholic beverages are allowed on the festival field, as per our alcohol permit.

Can I bring my pet to Sirens?

Sadly, no.  Please make other arrangements for your furry friends.  Please email if you need a recommendation for a pet sitter or kennel; we would be happy to help.

Service animals are welcome.  Please bring proper documentation for your service animal.  Your service animal must be on a leash at all times, and you must pick up after it.  Thank you for being considerate to all in attendance.

Car camping is sold out but the website says primitive walk-in camping is available.  What's the deal?

We offered a very limited number of car camping tickets, in an effort to honor the intimate space and cut down on vehicle traffic.  We did, however, leave some space for people to come pitch a tent on the festival grounds.  These spots are in the field, some along the river, some along the tree line.  They are first come, first serve.  We will help you shuttle in your gear, but you must park your car on River Road.

Can I have a fire at my CAMPsite?

YOU MAY NOT HAVE A FIRE, as per the fire marshal.  Small portable grills are allowed.

I want to camp but I need to go offsite at 5PM.  can i leave the festival field and come back?

Due to traffic logistics, there will be no car pass-outs.  If you want to come set up your campsite and then leave the festival midway through the event, you will need to park on the road.  We will definitely help you load in your tent or essential equipment, though, have no fear.

Can I record the performances?

We salute those who wish to make audio recordings.  If the artists have any restrictions on audio recording, we will inform you at the concert.
