Trash Policy?

Four Quarters is a leave no trace venue, just like Burning Man. Waste bins will be placed throughout camp – please use them. Our Site Maintenance volunteers will be servicing the bins. There will also be a large dumpster accessible for use upon arrival/departure. All attendees are responsible for their trash. Please keep your camp clean. This includes cigarette butts. Anyone caught flicking cigarette butts will be punished – you are risking future use of the venue for all of us. Remember, the only trash is you.

ATM / Cash / RFID Payments

Honcho Campout went completely cashless in 2019, switching to an RFID wristband system for all official on-site purchases. It was well received, and we (REALLY) are planning major upgrades to the back-end network this year to improve stability and access. You'll have a chance to pre-load your wrist bands with money at check-in, as well as at different locations inside the main gate throughout the weekend. PLEASE take advantage of the chance to top-up your wristband at the front gate. And if you need to top up with cash, the front gate is your ONLY chance to do this.

You will need $20 cash for parking ($10 dollars for re-entry each time), there are no ATMS on site. Make sure you handle that BEFORE you arrive at camp.

Can I set up a sound system at my camp?

Renegade sound systems and/or DJ setups are strictly prohibited. We realize this sounds grumpy, but Honcho Campout isn't Burning Man. We've put a lot of loveinto our programming and want to gve the artists on our lineup the spotlight they deserve. Just as importantly, your neighbors may be hanging at their camp to get a moment of peace or some sleep. Small bluetooth speakers are fine, but please keep the volume contained to your camp site. Everyone hereis operating on different schedules, so let's be courteous to the others around us and keep the raging to the stages.

COVID-19 Policy

We are requiring full vaccination for all attendees, staff, and artists this year, PLUS at least 1x booster shot on top.

  • You must have your booster shot completed by the time you arrive at the front gate for check-in.
  • A photo of your vaccination card, or your state government's official vaccination verification app will be required at check-in in order to be admitted into Camp. We are not requiring the actual vaccination card.
  • Masks are not required, but will be respected. Consent is not just sensual.
  • No exceptions on any of this. Please, please double and triple check everything.

Check-in / Check-out

Check in times have changed! Please be sure to check the revised gate times before planning travel. The front gate will be locked after hours.

Every ticket now has Wednesday arrival built in. Now you're able to check-in on Wednesday, August 17 starting at noon. This gives you a chance to scope out the perfect campsite, take a little extra time decorating your camp, and center yourself before the madness ensues.

Music programing begins on Thursday, August 18 at 10:30am and ends Sunday, August 21 at midnight.

Check-out happens no later than Monday, August 22 – all campers must vacate the grounds by 11am. No exceptions.

Cars & Parking?

Four Quarters is as automobile free as possible. Upon arrival only, you are allowed to drive into camp to unload. Thereafter you must return your car to the main parking area. Be considerate, unload quickly, and then immediately move your car to parking so you do not create traffic jams.

Parking is $20 per vehicle, cash only.

Re-entry is possible for $10 fee.

Car camping is only allowed at the very top of Hilltop Camp, above parkign, and before getting into the main camp area.

Where can I camp?

Almost anywhere, first come first served. We have primary camping spots marked on our Campout map, which you'll get a copy of at check-in. The only place where camping is prohibited is on the Great Meadow in New Camp. You are allowed to camp along the trees around the perimeter, but you must haul your gear over the Rainbow Bridge to set up camp over there. No parking or unloading is allowed in New Camp unless you are Glamping.

Bonfires / Grills?

Bonfires are permitted at camp sites and around camp in general. Four Quarters loans fire rings (required) and firewood is available for sale at Pick-Me-Ups!. You must use a fire ring if you’re creating a fire.

Four Quarters does not provide grills. Small camping stoves / grills are permitted.

Direct shipping to Four Quarters?

Yes, you can order online and direct ship to Four Quarters. Packages cannot arrive any earlier than Tuesday, August 16th.

Drinking water?

Four Quarters water is fed by a spring. Tested weekly, it has been given the highest purity rating by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Leave the bottled water behind and reduce your plastic consumption. Instead, bring a reusable water bottle / jugs to refill at the many drinking water spigots around camp. We will have improved daytime and nighttime wayfinding this year for easy navigation to water.


No electricity will be provided. External batteries are highly recommended. Battery and solar powered devices are the way to go. Please do not be the annoying person with a gasoline powered generator at your campsite.

Hotel (near Four Quarters)?

The nearest hotels can be found in Hancock, MD (closest, but few options), and our old favorite, Breezewood, PA. But why would you do this?

Do you have ice for sale?

You'll be able to purchase ice from Pick-Me-Ups!, Hemlock Hole & The Grove.


Sorry, Four Quarters Farm has a strict no pets policy.


We’re bummed that you won’t be able to join us, however, all sales are final. Earlier in the summer we had a resell program, but that has now closed as we move into full production mode for the festival. You are welcome to still resell your tickets yourself, and then change the names on them by logging into your account on ShowClix. Instructions on how to do that can be found here.

 Rideshare? (East Coast / Midwest)

As in previous years we have created a rideshare sheet to assist campers who need a ride to camp, or who can spare a seat in their vehicle. This document can be found here, and there are separate tabs at the bottom where you can request a ride or share a ride.
