Can I camp at the the festival?

Yes! You can camp at Cropped Out. We ask that you please clean up after yourselves! We will have showers and bathrooms available for campers to use 24/7. A camping pass is an additional $20 per day (or $30/weekend), per person. Each pass costs that amount per day, per camper whether you will be in a single-person tent or sharing a multi-person tent. All campers must sign a liability waiver upon arrival at the site and will be given a camping wristband and a list of rules that they must comply with (basically just don't be an asshole).

There is no camping Sunday night.

When can I set up my tent?

The camping site will be open for setup at NOON on Friday, October 5th. All campers must be cleaned up and on their way out by 12:00PM on Sunday, October 7th. There is no camping on Sunday, October 7th.

We have four people in one tent. Do I have to pay another camping fee?

Again, camping is charged per person, NOT per site/ tent. Camping is $20 per person, per day. Whether you have your own tent or have 15 people crammed in one is up to you.

Will my belongings and tent be safe?

While we will have security on site for the entirety of the festival and hope that all festival attendees will be respectful of others’ property, we cannot guarantee the safety of your belongings and are not liable for any property that is damaged or stolen from tents, vehicles, backpacks, etc. If you’re that worried about it, leave it at home!

If I’m a camper and I want to leave the grounds in the middle of the night, can I get back in?

Yes. We will have security on site 24/7. You must have your camping wristband on, which you’ll be given when you check in at the front gate during gate hours. You will not be allowed to re-enter if you do not have your wristband.

Can I…?

Can I bring in my own alcohol?

No, but we will have beer and booze available for purchase for the duration of the festival bands each night (and onward until the early morning hours). All drinks are reasonably priced -- especially for a festival -- and we rely heavily on our bar sales to keep our operation afloat/affordable to all. PLEASE respect this and do not make us scold you for sneaking in your own stash.

Can I get cash out at the festival? Is there an ATM on site?

There is an ATM located on site at American Turner’s Club.

I lost something! Where can I find lost property?

A Lost & Found will be located at the gate of the festival during gate hours.

Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are not permitted on the premises.

Can I bring my baby?

Children 11 and under can attend for free. Children 12 years and older must pay full price for festival admission.

What is it?

Cropped Out is a locally and independently developed music festival set to take place in Louisville, KY. The fest is designed to highlight the creative efforts of Louisville natives, friends, family, and fellow thinkers from Murray to Manhattan to Melbourne and beyond.

Since the earliest baby breaths of punk from within the walls of the now-defunct Louisville School of Art in the late ‘70s, from local proto-punks like No Fun, Babylon Dance Band, and the recently re-issued Endtables, it is no secret that Louisville’s cultural contributions have long served as a significant influence on national underground art and music scenes. One must not forget, we are still a force with which to be reckoned. This festival, specifically, intends to celebrate a renewed sense of enthusiasm about Kentucky’s cultural offerings by pairing a few of our favorites from the Derby City with similarly exciting examples handpicked from around the country.

But why?

Cropped Out aims to celebrate a select fistful of contemporary musicians, artists, and artisans whom we feel reflect a greater undercurrent of sonic, visual, and conceptual exploration. It is our intention to turn heads toward the talents of those often omitted, overlooked, or cropped out of “the big picture.” These are the minds most interesting to us, the minds most capable of emerging from and quickly returning to their lightlessness, if only to be briefly met by a niche appreciation.
