11 Sep Imagine Festival Guide
Imagine Festival is only a few weeks away from the release of this posting. The excitement of a festival is in the air. Imagine Festival occurs as the festival season draws near to a close, and they aim to leave to you imagining why it all has to end? Well, for now, festival season shall commence and that involves Imagine Festival which starts September 19 – 22.
Imagine Festival Lineup and Stages
First, let’s start with the lineup. There are five festival stages and a silent disco that is specially curated for the campers. The main stage, Oceania, will, of course, feature the heavy hitters in the game such as Diplo, Alison Wonderland, Seven Lions, and Said the Sky.
However, do not sleep on the other stages such as the Amazonia and Disco stages that will be host to Louis the Child, Tipper Music, G Jones, Claude VonStroke, Anna Lunoe and Subtronics. Speaking of Subtronics, I saw him recently at Bass Canyon, and he is definitely a must-see again for Imagine Festival.
There are also the Six Feathers and Guerrilla 360 stages featuring smaller artists just waiting for you to discover. Make sure you visit these stages and enjoy the quest of building onto your EDM playlist. Plus, it’s always clutch being that friend that put your squad on to a dope new sound.
Down for the Imagine experience? Well, there are quite a few ways to enjoy Imagine and I’ll guide you through the deets.
Trip Planning (Ticket Pricing and Packages Available)
Camp life offers several options ranging from the affordable to the more pricy and accommodating. These options are available if you desire to stay on-site each night of the 4-day festival. Keep in mind that your camping passes do not include your entry into the festival. Camping passes are solely your sleeping accommodations.
Camp General Admission offers your basic camp set up. Essentially, you are paying to stay on-site and party. A single purchased GA camping pass is valid for one person at only $99 each. Entry is on a first come first serve basis, which will determine your parking campsite.
However, this year, Imagine is offering a new group camping option which allows for large groups to select a group leader to register for a predetermined camp location. A group with a minimum of 15 buddies will be allowed to arrive at camp at any time and will be escorted to their predetermined campsite.
GA campsites are measured at 20’x20′ and are allowed two tents and an average-sized vehicle. There will be a restroom facility with plumbing and showers for $5. There will also be access to workshops, yoga classes, and a special craft and food area.
Camp VIP Admission gains you everything that GA offers plus a larger measured lot at 30’x 30′, express entry into camp with premium location, and dedicated festival entry. VIP camp will have private air-conditioned restroom trailers and showers as well as an exclusive lounge.
There will be charging stations, VIP exclusive food & drink vendors, and premium services like massage and yoga. On top of all that, there’s a concierge service. Individual passes are $149 each.
Renting a QUBE Tent places you in the VIP area. General and VIP campers must provide their own camp materials. Those of you who rent a QUBE will have staff that will set up and breakdown your tent. QUBEs feature blacked-out interior, bug netting, and they are waterproof and windproof.
The Single QUBE comes with three VIP camping passes, allowing three of your best buds to shack it up. However, you’ll have the option of sheets, blankets, and pillows for either a queen-sized air mattress or double twins at $699 for more comfort. Now, you can always save $100 by opting for the empty floor plan. This option will probably bode useful should you choose to house three of your closest squad members.
The Double QUBE comes with six VIP camp passes and sleeps six-max. There are options for purchase that will allow four to sleep comfortably. These include air mattresses configured as double queens, four twins, or a queen and double twins. Again, all the options come with sheets, blankets, and pillows, or you can select the open floor plan option.
RV Campers are afforded several options to make RV life perfect. Three-day RV passes are sold with non-hookup (no electricity generator usage), power and water hookups, or the pre-set RV rental, which means no driving required. Individual entry into camp is sold separately unless you opt for the RV hookup plus four camp admissions or the pre-set RV which comes with six camp passes.
Hotel Takeovers are for the peeps not ready for the camp life. Not everyone is down to live outdoors and that’s fine. Imagine fest understands and has partnered with three high-quality hotel chains for which they have taken over the entire hotels for Imagine revelers. Select from La Quinta, Comfort Suites, or Hampton Inn to be your cozy space for the weekend. If you prefer not to drive, there will be a shuttle provided at each hotel, and it will run from 4 pm – 10 pm and again from 1 am – 4 am, making life easy for you and the crew.
The Festival You Imagine
Imagine is set to do just as its name says, spark the imagination. So, become enthralled by the amazing cirque acts. There will be whimsical aquatic performers, the Wheel of Destiny, and atmosphere performers, amongst other exciting performances. Gain aerial views of the action on the Ferris wheel or fly high on the swing.
Also, be sure to catch a glimpse of the many art installations that are scattered throughout the festival grounds, including some of the brand new art exhibits that were added just this year. Plus, you may find a visionary artist who is not only showcasing their amazing artwork but also creating it live.
What would an aquatic-themed festival be without a pool party? We’re not sure because this aquatic-themed festival has just that. Make a big splash at this summer’s largest pool party. Sail aimlessly in a complimentary floaty, take in the interactive art displays, and if you are really feeling fancy, rent out one of the fabulous VIP cabanas or tables.
The VIP deck comes with all kinds of perks such as the best view of the main stage, private elevated viewing, private seating, premium wait staff, and private air-conditioned bathrooms. Keep in mind that VIP festival tickets do not grant access to the Ocean View Deck; you will need to have a table reservation in order to gain entry.
Just in case the festival is just not enough of a party, Imagine is opening early on Saturday for a Vegas-style pool party from 1 pm – 4 pm. Bring your bathing suit and all your friends. The pool party is open to all Imaginers, and VIP Campers get in FREE.
