Hollowfest is far-reaching community event that provides support for artists and a space for people to come together and share. In its first year, the event featured over 25 musical acts, mostly based in Toronto, Montreal, and Eastern Ontario. We are thrilled to bring the festival alive again this September and continue to make Hollowfest an annual event that uplifts and inspires.


The site for Hollowfest is a large private property that lies about 25 miles north of Perth, Ontario. The site lies between two wetland areas on a rise surrounded by forest. The land we use is very beautiful and special. We ask that attendees treat it with reverence and respect.

Camping Accommodations

Surrounding the main event field are row pines, cool, shady and perfect for tenting. If you prefer, you can sleep in your vehicle or bring a camping trailer.

The Climate

The days are usually nice and warm. The nights can get chilly so bring a good sleeping bag and appropriate clothes.


Hollowest is a BYOB event. Please bring cans instead of glass.

Food & Kitchen

We have a volunteer-run house kitchen. We will be selling a midnight meal on Friday, lunch and dinner on Saturday and an afternoon feast on Sunday. Vegetarian options will be available.


Hollowest is a cash-only event. There will be merch, food and crafts available for sale.

Water & Power

There is no electricity on site. We power everything with generators and batteries. There is no running water on site. We bring in fresh well water in multiple 125 gallon tanks. We recommend you bring your own fresh water to get you through the weekend.

Washroom Things

There are no showers on site. But fear not, campers! Bring your swimsuit, for just down the road is the most beautiful swimming hole in Lanark County. If you must, please bring biodegradable soaps. We have multiple outhouses built on site.

Dogs & Pets

Please leave your pets at home for the weekend. Although we allowed dogs to attend last year, we realize Hollowfest is not a safe and practical environment for pets.
