Vip means that you will get a tshirt (presale tickets) or a poster, free beer, Free pizza, amphitheater side camping, access to tons of free giveaways from our sponsors, and so much more!! The event is private in an effort to keep it small and to provide the best experience to all our patrons. That being said, if you want to join us in the hollow - simply fill out an Invite request form and we will get you the information needed to become a part of this unique and beautiful event!
Where/when? The Festival is held a "hidden" location in Butler , TN just outside of Boone, NC. Once you purchase tickets, you are added to a list to receive directions the week of the event. This helps to keep the event private and adds to the wonder of the hollow. We ask that all patrons of previous years help us to keep the event " hidden". 2016 dates will be announced very soon. the festival will sell out. please do not hesitate to purchase tickets. we hate to turn people away. If you want to be a part of the unique, fun, amazing private even, get your tickets quickly. ROoms book up even faster. vending will book up quickly too.
Please don't wait till the last minute and miss out on this awesome time.
How do I purchase a ticket? Once you complete the Invitation request form an invitation will be sent to you containing purchasing information and a riddle. The riddle's answer is the password required to enter the invitation purchasing page, where you can purchase a ticket. being that it is all friends and friends of friends - Its more like throwing in on the best party ever than buying a ticket. Everyone who buys a ticket is truly a part of the hollow experience. WE couldn't do it with out you guys!
How much are tickets and what is included? Tickets to this private event will be $120.00 (early bird pricing is $99 - for a limited time only). all tickets are vip and will include 2 nights of camping, 2 days and nights of amazing music, a free Pizza party, miles and miles of trails, a disc golf course, as well as local craft and food vendors, a poster , other vip goodies and giveaways from the festival. Did we mention beer is free after 5pm each day?
or the awesome rock Paper scissors tournaments? and oh yeah. . .
one of the best weekends of your life!!
How about children? We like to consider the hollow a family friendly, all ages event. With that being said, its not for all families. With the free giveaways and alcohol present, as well as music going very late into the night, it is an atmosphere that not all families are accustom too. If you are under 21 please contact us about a cheaper non-drinking ticket. Once again IDs are Required for all drinking age participants! Children 14 and under do not require a ticket and anyone under 18 must me accompanied by an adult. contact us if you have any questions regarding these policies.
Are there other things i should expect to pay for at the festival?
a parking pass (see below), food for the weekend (we provide one pizza party on Saturday night), cash for vendors.
Is there an ATM on site? no, make sure you bring enough cash for the weekend.
do i need to purchase a parking pass? The parking passes are essentially Car camping passes. Parking is available on site for free and a shuttle is provided to take you to the amphitheater camping area. Camping is in the same area, car or no car, and spots are first come first serve. we are offering a limited amount of amphitheater parking passes (car camping passes) that you must purchase to park and camp near the music area. our intent is to promote safety and carpooling to the event.
how do i purchase a parking pass? once you gain access to the ticket purchasing page by answering the riddle sent to you in your invitation request email, there will be an option to purchase a parking pass. parking passes are $20 per vehicle. you can fit as many people as you like in your vehicle but each car parking at the amphitheater must have one amphitheater parking pass displayed in the window. You can purchase these at anytime and they will be added to your reservation.
if i don't purchase a parking pass, where can i park? we have a satellite parking area on site, but it is a short hike from the music and camping area. if you are unable to purchase an amphitheater parking pass, you will be able to park in this section free of charge. we will have a shuttle system in place to get you from your vehicle to a designated camping area. there is no camping in the satellite spot, so prepare to camp away from your car.
will the shuttle be able to take me back to my car during the weekend? yes, the shuttle will operate throughout the festival if you need to access you car, or if you just want to go for a spin. tipping is encouraged in this situation.
Are there rooms available on site? Yes, There are ten hotel style rooms available on the festival site. Each has its own bathroom and shower, its own thermostat and can be two twin beds or one king bed. up to 4 people are allowed to stay in each room. These rooms are available for ticket holders to book for the weekend of our festival for $220 per room. That covers both nights. if you're interested, click here for more info- but hurry, they will go fast!!
How to I get a hotel room on site? If you are intersted in booking a room, click here to take you to our room reservation request page. since there are only 10 rooms available we work on a first come, first serve basis. Send us your information via this page and we will hold the room for you for 48 hours. If you have not paid for your room after this time, the room will be released to the next person on the waiting list. once the rooms have all been paid for we will begin a waiting list for anyone that may back out last minute. you must buy a ticket before you will have access to purchasing a room.
if this in an all vip event, do i need to bring my own alcohol? This private event is BYOB, meaning if you are of age, you can bring your beverages of choice. Id's will be checked during check in so please don't forget yours. No glass please, in order to protect everyone's feet. Each night there will be lots of kegs, but during the day and late night, you need to BYOB.
do you have a recycling program? being green is very important to us, AND WE ARE ASKING FOLKS TO please keep up with your recycling and avoid sending things to the landfill. trash bags will be handed out during check-in, we ask that you try to keep recyclables separate from landfill bags. we use the local waste management services to sort the trash and make a donation at the end of the event. so we ask you to remember, we are all family here, so lets take good care of the space we occupy and make as little impact as possible so we can come back again!
* ANOTHER IMPORTANT PART OF BEING GREEN AND PROTECTING THE LAND IS OUR REQUEST FOR ALL ATTENDEES TO CAR POOL. LESS CARS MEANS LESS EMISSIONS, A SMALLER FOOTPRINT, AND MUCH MORE ROOM TO ROAM ON SITE.
IF EVERYONE BRINGS ONE OTHER PERSON in their car- WE JUST CUT THE NUMBER OF CARS IN HALF - THIS CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE in gas and in space in the hidden hollow !!
are pets allowed? NO. SERVICE DOGS ONLY ALLOWED - and Cleaning up after them is a MUST!! Please provide proof of service with vest or license. We must know of all service dogs coming on site - please contact us. You will not be allowed on site with an un expected pet.
WHy no dogs? we have tried to allow them, but the hollow is fun and people get distracted and dogs get off leash and eat things that hurt their tummy's or poop everywhere. no one wants to step in dog poop. Please do not bring your dog who is not providing you with a necessary service. Everyone roaming the festival barefoot will THank you. we thank you.
