The San Marcos River has several tubing companies to choose from including Don’s Fish Camp andCool River Ranch. Shuttles will be available to shuttle people to the festival grounds from each of these locations. Float the river then stick around for some great music!
Float Fest will have medical aid at the festival grounds in the designated areas. Please see our site map for first aid stations before arriving at the festival. We will also have directionals at the fest. Please take this very seriously. Accidents can happen anywhere at anytime. So please be prepared. We want you to be safe!
Float Fest is accepting applications for vendors and volunteers for 2014. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you float the river while listening to music? No. Those two activities happen separately. You float the river in the morning or afternoon, then when you’re done tubing from either Cool River Ranch or Don’s Fish Camp, you head over to the venue to enjoy the music! We recommend you float early!
Yes, you can bring your own tube, but you will still have to pay for a floating pass. This pass gets you on the shuttle, which will drop you off upstream so you can float back down to the concert.
You’ll want to park at Don’s Fish Camp when you arrive and then move after you float.
Super easy! If you didn’t want to move your car, shuttles will be available to take you to the show. Otherwise, hop back in your car and drive just across the river to Cool River Ranch. Don’t worry, you’ll only have to pay for parking once!
Of course! However, you’ll have to leave whatever you have left in your car before entering the festival grounds for the concert.
Well first of all, we love the San Marcos River and are committed to leaving it in better condition than we found it. To that end, we’ve hired professionals to clean up whatever mess is left. In addition, we’ve partnered with The Meadows Center at Texas State who will be providing volunteers to assist in the cleanup as well. Also, both Cool River Ranch and Don’s Fish Camp do weekly clean ups of the river and will also be assisting in the cleanup pre AND post event. Together we can make this both a fun and an environmentally responsible event!
No, of course not! You can buy a Concert Only ticket and simply come to enjoy the show.
Live music starts at 11:30 am, but we’ll have a DJ kicking off the party starting at 11 AM.
Camping passes allow you to sleep at the venue on both Saturday and Sunday. You’ll want to stay Saturday so you can wake up early and hit the river to make sure you’re done floating before the music starts. You’ll want to stay Sunday so you can party all day and not have to worry about how you’re getting home. Bottom line is, you’ll want to camp!
You should be prepared to camp outside under the stars. There won’t be electricity and for safety reasons you won’t be able to light a fire (but you shouldn’t need one to keep you warm on a Texas night in August!). There won’t be running water, but we will be providing porta potties for when nature calls. You’ll need to bring a tent, a sleeping bag, and rations to get you through the night.
No, you’ll need to buy one for each person that will be staying the night.
Yes, grills are allowed. Just no open fires
Kids under 10 are free.
No showers are available on site.
There is no specific size to each campsite. It’s first come first serve. There is plenty of room for your giant tent and all your friends!
There will be no cars allowed inside the camping area. You can park your car very close to the campsite though. The parking field and camping site are very close to each other. See our site map for more information.
Yes, you can bring some food and beverages including alcohol inside the campgrounds.
No. campgrounds will close at 12am and you may not exit and return. So be sure you bring everything you need!
