The gate will be allowing attendees on site between the hours of 9:00am and 10:00pm each day of Evolutions. Please do not arrive outside of these hours expecting to get into the venue; if you do, you must wait until the gate opens in the morning the following day.


Upon arriving at Evolutions, attendees will go through the following procedures:


1). Wristbands and ID Checkpoint

  • Have state ID and admission ticket at the ready. If being shown on a device, have the brightness turned up to max. Pro-tip, have the entire document saved to your phone as a screen shot so that you do not need service to present your ticket to be scanned. Service will be poor on site.
  • If someone in your party purchased your ticket for you, you MUST be in the vehicle with them upon arrival.
  • Once cleared through the ID checkpoint and wristbands are obtained, you will be directed by event staff to the security checkpoint. Evolutions wristbands must be worn at all times and will be void if tampered with, torn, or removed.

2). Security Check Point

  • By entering the venue, you consent to a search of yourself and your possessions (i.e. your car, person, packs, bags, coolers, etc) in order to keep all attendees and staff safe.
  • A search for prohibited, dangerous, or illegal items will be carried out by event security upon entering the venue. A thorough search may be conducted at securities discretion if needed. In an instance where this occurs, the occupants in the vehicle will be asked to exit the vehicle and stand nearby while the thorough search is conducted. If an attendee is found to be carrying on their person, or transporting with their vehicle, prohibited, dangerous, or illegal items, they may be refused entry to the festival.
    • Note: If an attendee is already on venue at any point during the festival and found with such items, the attendee may be (depending on the severity of the item) escorted off property with no re-entry allowed till after the festival is over to gather their belongings.

3). Arriving at Camp

  • Once successfully through the ID and security checkpoints with wristbands, you will be guided by event parking staff to arrive at your camping location.
  • With that, it’s time to setup camp and have fun! You’re about o have so much fun : ) Also, remember to bring campsite decorations!

What To Bring:

If you’ve been to an Evolutions, then you know to bring your gear. We want everyone to be as cozy as they can be when they are out and about at the festival as well as going to sleep. Quick list of suggested items to bring:

  • Functional Tent
  • Tent Rain Fly
  • Rain Jacket
  • Boots (best case: water proof)
  • Paracord
  • Ear plugs
  • Sleeping Bag, Sleeping Pad, Extra Blankets, Pillows
  • Easy-Up Canopy
  • Hammocks! The woods scene is all about the tree life.
  • Decorations for your site! We’d love for you to bring decorations for your Evolutions base camp. Attendee additions are a wonderful contribution to the event. Remember, all decorations must be taken with you at the end of the event.
  • Head Lamp (with extra batteries or with car charger is best)
  • Camping Chairs
  • Toiletries:  Toothpaste and Toothbrush, Contacts, Body wash, Deodorant, Floss, etc
