  1. I would call these the largest music festivals not the best. The Gathering of the Juggalos is the wildest. Backwoods is low key best hippie festival.

    1. Thanks for your comment! I wanted to include the most popular music festivals with RV and tent camping available. If you have some others to add please share! I would love to know about them! Happy Camping.

  2. Okee is taking a hiatus for 2024, and maybe longer. The future of that fest is really up in the air right now. Which is really sad, that is our local summer camping fest and we go every year. Great fest, I hope to see it back in 2025.

  3. Thanks Kim! Good list. Shoutout to Burning Man as well! Not for everyone, but as a 10x burner I highly recommend taking your RV there, for some of the best music, dancing, land art and community on the planet, with precautions of course as it is dusty.
