On-Site Camping; Hotels, Motels, B&BS

Johnstown has a rather modest number of available lodging options, so make your reservations early! Also, once again we are offering ON-SITE CAMPING on the festival lawn, just steps from two of our four stages.

If you need further help with locating lodging, contact the Greater Johnstown/Cambria County Convention & Visitors Bureau at 800.237.8590.

On-site camping

We are excited to announce that on-site camping will once again be available at the 2016 Flood City Music Festival! The festival campground is located inside Peoples Natural Gas Park, just steps away from two of the four festival stages as seen on our 2016 festival map. One 12’ x 12’ plot of land on which to camp is $50, and each plot of land is restricted to one tent and a maximum of 4 campers. Campers will have access to portable restrooms throughout the course of the weekend (no showers though – it’s a no-frills experience!). The campground will be gated – only festival attendees with a camping pass will be allowed in and out of the campground throughout the course of the weekend. Food and beverage vendors, as well as the festival bars and pubs, will be open during festival hours (and maybe a food vendor will cook breakfast in the mornings too!). In addition, the festival grounds are located within a short walking distance to many restaurants, bars, and convenient stores. Campers may bring a portable gas grill, but make sure it can fit within the allotted plot!

What’s NOT allowed in the campground? No fires, no pets, and no alcohol.  In addition, due to liquor control board regulations, campers may NOT bring alcohol from the festival grounds into the campground.  Thus, campers must finish their drinks prior to entering their “home” for the weekend.

Project Shelter: We are excited to announce a new partnership with Project Shelter at the 2016 Flood City Music Festival!

For those weighing their options for any camping gear, look into Project Shelter for your camping needs! They provide a la carte items including tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, lanterns, water bottles, chairs and even pillows OR you can reserve a two ($149) person package that includes all of the above for your entire crew!

Pre-order what you need online at www.projectshelter.org, and indicate when you check out that you’ll pick it up at Flood City. Your gear will be waiting for you at the official Flood City General Store! After it’s over, leave behind any gear that you don’t want to drag home. Project Shelter will make sure it all gets donated to nonprofits to be used for sheltering displaced families and refugees, such as Feed the Children, 501©3.

In addition, Project Shelter will be operating a general store where essential items such as ice, sunscreen, ponchos, medications, and other miscellaneous necessities can be purchased. The 2016 Flood City Music Festival General Store will also serve as the Official Flood City Music Festival Merchandise Store, Information Booth, and Lost & Found.

Parking, Check-In, & Check-Out:  Campers may check in on Thursday, August 4th, beginning at 2:00 PM. Campers must check out by Sunday, August 7. Campers who have pre-purchased tickets and camping passes for the 2016 Flood City Music Festival should drive to the Walnut Street Bridge (see festival grounds map) and present their camping pass to the security guard stationed at the bridge. Campers will then advance down Walnut Street where they will temporarily park their cars on the corner of corner of Walnut Street and Johns Street.

Campers will then check in with the Flood City Music Festival General Store (operated by Project Shelter and located at this intersection). During check-in, camping passes and festival tickets will be scanned, and camping and festival wrist bands will be provided for the weekend. Remember that a maximum of only 4 camping wristbands will be rewarded for 1 camping pass at this time. In addition, pre-purchased camping gear from Project Shelter can be claimed at this time. Campers will then be directed to park their cars in the Johnstown Hydraulics lot (adjacent to Peoples Natural Gas Park). Campers can then transport their gear across Iron Street (very short distance) directly into the campground at Peoples Natural Gas Park. At the end of your stay, there is no need to check-out. Just simply pack up your gear, clean up your camp site, and exit the festival at your own convenience!

Anyone who has NOT pre-purchased a camping pass but intends to camp must first proceed to the Johns Street ticket booth (the main festival entrance) to purchase camping passes (and festival tickets if needed). Once camping passes and tickets are purchased, campers can then follow the directions listed above.

Purchasing Camping Passes & Tickets: Camping sells for $50 for the entire weekend (Thursday – Sunday). When you are online to buy your tickets —  weekend pass, Oilhouse Pass, or single-day tickets — you will have the opportunity to add camping to your order as you check out. (Please note that you are ordering on mobile or a tablet, this option may not appear — if you have that difficulty, please call Ticketmaster customer service at the number below).

Obviously, each camper will need their own festival ticket for each day of the festival. But remember, only one camping pass is needed for a maximum of 4 people. If you’ve already bought your tickets and find you need to buy camping only, Ticketmaster customer service can help — call 1-800-745-3000. You can also buy your pass at the Johns Street ticket booth as described above.
