Country Thunder will bring over 100,000 fans to four festivals across the U.S. in 2017 to witness the biggest names in country music. The festival has built a reputation as one of the greatest country music festival in the nation. We’ve compiled a list of advice from the pros and handy tips to help you navigate the scene.

1. Care for a private restroom?

You can actually purchase your own personal port-o-potty for your campsite if you feel squeamish about sharing.

Camp gates open the day before the festival. Anyone staying in the campgrounds must have a 4-day GA pass at minimum.

3. Need a break?

Re-entry and exit are allowed for all ticket holders.

4. Forget something?

There will be a general store, ATM and food vendors onsite. So, don’t sweat the tiny things.

5. Have a shower fund

Showers are available onsite for a small fee. Bring your quarters!

6. Stay in the know

Get the Country Thunder App to stay up-to-date with the lineup schedule, announcements and more.
