What to bring:
How to reserve a campsite:
No reservation is required. Tickets will be sold online ahead of time or at the gate (see above). If you come alone or with a friend or two, we will let you know at the gate where you can set up your tent. We designated an International campsite for those non-Russian speakers coming for the first time, so you could find each other if needed - it is on the edge of the campgrounds. However, most non-Russian speakers that attend our festivals seem to choose to be in the middle of all the action, and we do not mind. Just mention at the gate where you prefer to camp.
It is recommended, however, to groups of 3+ tents to make a campsite reservation. To do so, please send the name of your group (come up with a fun name), expected number of tents, the preferred location (quiet/singing zone), and name/cell phone number of personal responsible for the group to KSPsouth@gmail.com. If your group attends multiple times, you will be given an option to reserve a permanent location. Please do not hesitate to email or call Anna: 832-545-7225 (leave msg, she will call you back) with any questions regarding campsite reservations.
