So planet blue grass website states that Mary ilium campground is only for people with the 4 day pass or single tickets to all 4 days. A group of my friends and I are getting the 4 day pass but 2 of our friends are coming down for only 2 days of the festival. Will those 2 friends be able to stay with us as long as they buy the camping pass? Or since they are only buying 2 one day tickets will they not be allowed there? Just curious how strict they are. Thanks!

The rules are strictly adhered to.
If you don't have all four day passes you cannot get a camping pass for Ilium.
Lawson Hill however will allow single day passes.

New to Telluride. Have 4 day passes and Illium camping. Whats the scene like there, at the campground. Do folks mingle, or stick to their camps? Do folks get jams going on in camp, or what? Like I said I'm new to Telluride, not new to festivals.

    Welcome to TBF and Mary E. Cheers The seen is pretty chill out at the campground. :festivarian2 There are some really great people out there. Mingling is one of the best things you can do. Camp hopping can almost be considered a sport from time to time. The grounds are so spread out, and it gets so cold out that picker circles are not found as much as some other festivals. Not to say you can't start you own circle. You can usually find someone to pick with. But yes there has been some legendary jams out there from time to time. Usually the further back you go the louder and later everything can get.
   Bring a gooood sleeping bag! It gets cold at night. Not unusual to wake up with frost on everything. If it's level ground, it's open to camp on. There are no set sites. It's a long campground with plenty of room to spread out. So feel free to bring your camping "extras". I.E. shower, solar set-up. Anything like that. There is NO open wood fires anytime! That is one rule that is strictly enforced. Will know about charcoal grills when we get closer to the fest.  Thumbs Up

How early do you have to get there to get a riverside spot?

  There are not allot of spots by the river to start with, sorry. But I would say sometime around Tuesday should get you a spot that is closer to the river. Most of the river area is pretty rocky and just not conducive for a good campsite.

Thanks. We plan on getting there Saturday or Sunday, so we shouldn't have any problems getting top tier camping. And we are looking forward to spending the week doing outdoor activities prior to the festy. I don't care if we aren't right on the river, just wanted to be close enough for easy access, sounds, and sights of water moving! I'm sooo excited I wish it was June now!

So we have a vehicle pass for Ilium. That means we can park at our campsite right??? I've been seeing confusing posts about having to park in a parking area.

If you have an Ilium vehicle pass then you can have your appropriately sized vehicle at the campsite.
Just be aware that you will not be allowed to drive it into town during the festival. You will still have to use the shuttles.

Yea, Tom is right. You will be allowed to drive in and out of the camp until about Wednesday afternoon sometime. The vehicle permit allows you to park in the campground by you site. It's only without a permit that you will need to park along the road. Shuttle buses start running either Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning. Thursday morning the police set up a road block and you won't be able to drive into town anyway.
