Health & Safety


WHERE: In the Main Venue the Medical Emergency Services tent is located near the bleachers. There are two Medical tents located in the FairGround and Main Venue, one located to the left of the Ferris Wheel and one located between the Cinema Tent and Beer & Vibe Garden. Also, each campground POD has medical staff on duty 24 hours a day, so look for the balloon.

Lots of things can happen at the Festival: arm-wrestling injuries, faces rocked off while dancing. That’s why the Main Venue, Fair Ground and every POD is home to a WolfHowl medical tent, staffed around the clock with WolfHowl medical staff. For your safety, the medical tents area is all staffed with licensed professionals. The Main Venue and Fair Ground medical tent is staffed with nurses and physicians, and a roaming medical staff is always on duty in the concert venue.

In an emergency, if you’re not near a medical tent, find a staff person with a radio, or notify the nearest security personnel so that they can get you whatever help you may need.


WHERE: You can find our safety staff roaming through every campground, at every POD, at the entrance to the Main Venue and at all the stages, as well as throughout all of Fair Ground and the Main Venue.

Our safety (aka, security) staff is trained to help make sure everyone has a good time and stays safe. If you have a security issue in the campgrounds, each POD has a security station open 24 hours. Mounted security patrols (yes, on horseback!) roam the campground areas at all times and can assist as well. Lasso one if you need help.

All vehicles will be searched on entry to the festival at the Toolbooths (which you should definitely keep in mind when deciding what to bring). And prepare to be (politely) searched each time you enter Fair Ground or the Main Venue.  Find out what you can and can’t bring in here.

HEALTH TIP: If you’re not sure whether it’s an emergency, assume it is and get help right away.


Our roads might not look like city streets. But for emergency and maintenance vehicles, they do the job as long as you keep them open. Which is what we ask you to do. Please park in designated areas and don’t drive around the site. Walk on the sides of the roads, and please let all official vehicles through.


Please don’t buy from unlicensed vendors. We work hard to ensure all official food and drink is good and safe. And really, if you buy something from an unlicensed vendor, you have no idea what you’re getting. There is lots of great stuff to buy from official WolfHowl vendors, who deserve your business, not least because they have made a real commitment to support WolfHowl.


Please don’t block the Emergency vehicle road, Emergency and maintenance vehicles, they do the job as long as you keep them open. Which is what we ask you to do. Please park in designated areas and don’t drive around the site. Walk on the sides of the roads, and please let all official vehicles through.


WolfHowl Music and Arts Festival stands against drug use. First, it’s dangerous to your health, especially in the August heat. Second, it can ruin the weekend for you and those around you. And last but not least it’s against the law: If it’s illegal outside the festival, it’s illegal inside, too.

If you see someone who is sick, upset, scared or clearly having a bad experience, get help. Find a medical tent or festival staff member. Provide all the information you can to safety or medical staff. Our “no questions asked” policy means neither you nor the sick person can get in trouble when you seek help.

Our number-one concern is the well-being of all WolfHowl attendees. By steering clear of substances and getting help for those who need it, you are contributing positively to the WolfHowlvibe, and the entire WolfHowl community thanks you for that.


The sale of alcohol is strictly prohibited. If you’re legal, you can bring it for your own enjoyment only. But, there is a limit to what you may bring.

  • You may bring: 2 cases of beer per person per car, and one (1) 1.75 liter of hard liquor per person per car, and 2 boxes of wine per person per car. (Really, that’s plenty for a weekend, don’t you think?) Anything more than that will be confiscated when we inspect your vehicle on arrival.
  • No glass containers of any kind are allowed into the campgrounds or concert areas.
  • No kegs are allowed into the festival.
  • No outside alcohol is allowed inside festival ground.



Dehydration is the number-one cause of unhappiness at WolfHowl. Water makes your brain and body work, and you need them both to enjoy the festival. (Not a water drinker? Then tank up with sports drinks, iced tea or anything else without alcohol. You can have fun but staying hydrated will make your day even better.  Look for a water station symbol and stop by for a free refill !



It’s easy to get separated at festivals. Know where your friends are, set up meeting points, and stick together—two or three brains are better than one! If you think a new or old friend needs help, ask our friendly wolves staff to assist, and always leave the show with everyone in your crew.


In the first aid tents located throughout the festival, you’ll find teams of medical practitioners ready to care for your every need — free of charge! If you feel something is wrong with you or your partner, do no hesitate and wait. Head to a nearest aid tent immediately. Remember YOU feeling better is making US feel better together.
