There is no ATM on site. Assess your camp lifestyle. Will you be buying ice to keep items chilled in your cooler? Will you be buying drinks and snacks at the bars? Will you want to purchase firewood for bonfires? How long will you be there? Overplanning is better under planning.
Bonfires are permitted at camp sites and around camp in general. Four Quarters loans fire rings (required) and sells firewood at the Coffee Dragons near the Medical tent. You must use a fire ring if you’re creating a fire.
Four Quarters does not provide grills. Small camping stoves / grills are permitted.
Four Quarters is as automobile free as possible. Upon arrival only, are 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 jam. There is a designated area for car camping.
We are offering early check-in starting Wednesday, August 14 (Noon – 8pm). This is a great option for those who want to scope out the perfect campsite, take a little extra time decorating their camp, center themselves before the madness ensues, or better yet arrive early and volunteer to help with set-up. Whatever your reason; a Wednesday Check-In Pass is required and covers your additional day of camping and use of the facilities.
Music programing begins on Thursday, August 15 at 10am and ends Sunday, August 18 evening. Trust us! You want to arrive as early as possible – we are not saving the best for last. The line-up is stacked from start to finish.
Check-out happens no later than Monday, August 19 – all campers must vacate the grounds by 11am. No exceptions.
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’re excited to partner with Kate Romane of Black Radish Catering for a third year. The optional Meal Plan is healthy, delicious and a hassle free way to stay well nourished. It includes Brunch (9am-1pm) and Dinner (4pm-8pm) Monday – Sunday, 8 meals in total. Both meat and veggie options will be available for each meal, and special diets are generally taken into account. Meal plans can be purchased here. Meal plans must be purchased by August 1st!
Campers can bring and prepare their own food. There are no grills on-site, so you will need to bring a small camp stove / grill. Coolers are recommended to keep items fresh. Four Quarters will sell ice at the Coffee Dragon near the Medical Tent.
NEW for 2019
Individually packaged snacks and fruit will be sold at the bar.
We have a flat $109 rate at the heavily queer Ace Hotel Pittsburgh using rate code “NOSLEEP” when booking on their website. If you want to stay closer to Megabus, Greyhound and Amtrak, we suggest using hotwire.com and restricting your search to the downtown area.
We’re bummed that you won’t be able to join us, however, all sales are final. You are allowed to resell your ticket(s) to someone else and change the name on the ticket(s). If you have arranged a re-sale, please email us with your confirmation number at firstname.lastname@example.org, and copy the new ticket-holder on the email.
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.
