The site for Hollowfest is a large private property that lies about 25 kilometers 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.
The safety of our community is our highest concern. There will be on-site testing for Covid-19 available to those who request it. All attendees are expected to do their part ahead of the festival by making sure they are virus-free with a negative Covid-19 test within 3 days prior to the event.
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 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.
There will be food and coffee vendors on site but we encourage you to pack meals and snacks for yourself.
Hollowest is a cash-only event. There will be merch, food and crafts available for sale.
There is no electricity on site. We power everything with generators and batteries. There is a well on site but we recommend you bring your own fresh water to get you through the weekend.
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.
Please leave your doggos at home for the weekend. Through much soul searching we’ve decided Hollowfest is not a safe and practical environment for dogs and a hassle for staff and volunteers.
Hollowfest happens with the support and participation of countless community members. We ask that volunteers commit to at least one full day shift and while we want everyone to have fun, we ask that volunteers remain present and clear-minded (sober) while they are in their assigned positions, whether it be - parking, cooking, dishes, trash collection, merch sales or whatever it may be. You can sign up as a volunteer using our volunteer signup form.
