Need to buy some camping gear for the festival? 

Our official gear partner, Project Shelter, is a social enterprise selling tents and gear that you can pick up when you arrive. By purchasing equipment through the festival, you'll save both money and a stop to a big-box store. Afterwards, any unwanted gear is donated to refugees and disaster relief organizations. Consider this will-call style model if you need to grab gear - skip the store, crowd source your purchasing power with other attendees, and support the community. Check out the details here:
