The Driftless Music Gardens are an idyllic setting in the rolling hills of Southwest Wisconsin’s Driftless Area. The hills, uncarved by the glaciers of the last ice-age, create a natural amphitheater that has welcomed many bands and performers over the years.
Armchair Boogie is thrilled to partner with the event team of the Driftless Music Gardens to present to you our weekend-long celebration of music and community.
When can I arrive at The Boogiedown?
Gates open to The Boogiedown open at 10:00 AM on Friday, July 15th. Gates hours are 10 AM-10 PM on both Friday and Saturday, please arrive during these times.
Do I need to purchase a parking pass?
Every vehicle entering the Driftless Music Gardens for The Boogiedown must have a parking pass. Parking passes are available in three varieties.
General Parking: If you are not staying overnight or are okay with packing your camping gear into the campgrounds, this is the pass for you.
Camp By Car: This parking pass allows you to pull up directly to your campsite. Once your car is parked, it will need to remain at your campsite for the duration of your stay at The Boogiedown.
RV Parking: If you're bringing an RV, camper, trailer, converted bus, or tiny home to The Boogiedown, you will need to purchase an RV parking pass so we can accommodate space for your home away from home. We do not have hookups available, generators are permitted in the RV area. Once your RV is parked, it will need to remain in place for the duration of your stay at The Boogiedown.
Does my entire group need to arrive at the same time?
If you have an RV or Camp By Car parking pass and you would like to have a site next to your friends, your group should plan to arrive at The Boogiedown at the same time.
Can I bring my RV?
You must purchase an RV parking pass to bring your RV to The Boogiedown. You would purchase the RV parking pass instead of a General Parking or Camp By Car parking pass.
The RV parking pass is for a space that is large enough for an RV. We do not have hook-ups for RVs. Generators are permitted in the RV area.

Can we leave and come back to The Boogiedown?
If you have a General Parking pass, you will be able to leave and return to the festival. Please anticipate having to wait in line again to re-enter.
If you have Camp By Car or RV parking, we will not be able to accommodate in/out privileges due to the difficulty of preparing vehicles in these sections of the festival.

Can I bring my pet to The Boogiedown?
There is a no pets policy at the Driftless Music Gardens, so you will need to leave your pets at home.
Registered Service Animals will be allowed on the grounds. As defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Wisconsin State Law, a service animal is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the person with a disability. An emotional support animal is NOT a Service Animal and will not be permitted on the grounds. Service Animals must be under the control of the handler at all times.
Is The Boogiedown an ADA accessible festival?
We do our best to accommodate everyone, but the reality is that we are an outdoor music festival without paved infrastructure. Here is what we are able to do.
Parking: There will be a parking area closer to the stage. While this will cut down on the distance, the audience area is still uphill from the parking area.
Restrooms: There will be ADA Accessible Portajohns available.
In our experience, a powered wheelchair can access most areas of the festival without too much difficulty, but there are areas that can not be easily traversed.
Our staff will do whatever we can to make your experience at The Boogiedown enjoyable.
