Everything You Need to Know About Nightmare At Four Quarters
Nightmare Festival has moved to Four Quarters and its important for you to know how the site will be set up. Many people are used to other festivals at this venue such as Big Dub Festival, however Nightmare will be its own unique setup – a completely different configuration. Please read below so you can make decisions about where to camp & what upgrades to get!
Stages, Locations & Premium Camping Areas
New Camp, located at 641 Clear Ridge Rd Artemas PA is the location of ALL STAGES, FOOD VENDING, and ENTERTAINMENT. Two main stages will reside in the New Camp field, one will be open air and the other will be a heated tent. The area in front of The Void (open air stage) will have standing space for 3000 people while the Gateway To Hell (heated tent) will have capacity for up to 2000 people. The open air stage will have a massive heated tent at the back of the dancefloor which will also have sitting areas & standing space for another 1500-2000 people. DON’T WORRY THOUGH! While we have all of this space, we are going to keep ticket sales hard capped and we will not oversell as we want everyone to be comfortable. This just means there’s plenty of space!
Patrons wishing to have extra convenience can upgrade to car camping inside New Camp and post up their tents right next to their cars. These spaces are very limited. Parking in New Camp will be located in a new field that has not yet been utilized before at Four Quarters but is still within easy proximity to tenting areas.
Main Camp, Hilltop Camp, and Shuttle Service
While Main Camp is not the primary camping location, it does have its benefits as this is the only camping location that has built-in showers and built-in bathrooms. Hilltop is also available for camping and is has ticketing designed for anyone who is attending Nightmare Festival on a budget. Both of these camping locations will have dedicated shuttle service that runs from 11am on Friday & Saturday until 2am each night.
Parking & Car Camping
Each camping area has a designated General Parking lot. Main Camp & Hilltop share the same general parking lot. Hilltop has car camping upgrades available which means you can pitch a tent directly next to your car in a designated 20×20 space! RV Parking is also available in Hilltop.
Nightmare Festival, regardless of its location, has the tendency to be cold. We will be creating massive bonfires around New Camp which will be approximately 15ft in height and all patrons are encouraged to bring their own fire pits. Wood is available for sale on site. The best way to stay warm in a tent in the fall is to invest in a small tent heater. There are units that cost less than $40 that you can get at any camping store. Pair this with a proper sleeping bag and you will be warm all through the night. Keep in mind that there are camping festivals in other states (like Vermont) where people camp in subzero temperatures. It’s all about preparation! We will have heated tents available for the public to hang out and bonfires but you will be responsible for your own warmth when you retire back to your tents – so please listen to our advice! <3
We do not offer “day tickets” since the festival is 24 hours. If you can only attend for one day then you may want to look at Saturday as there is a “Saturday Only” option. Otherwise to attend on Friday alone will require a pass for the full weekend.
WHERE TO CAMP
NEW CAMP: This is the closest to the action. All stages, food vendors, and merchants are located here.
NEW CAMP PARKING OPTIONS: General Parking for New Camp is located in a field across Route 26. The highway will be equipped with crossing guards, lights, and signage in accordance with Department of Transportation safety procedures/protocol. A limited number of VIP Parking spots are located in the field of New Camp. VIP Parking is the closest you can park to the stages without car camping. There are also a limited number of car camping spaces available inside the New Camp field. Car Camping is a 20×20 space where you can camp right at your parking spot. This is different than VIP Parking.
HILLTOP: This is the 2nd closest to the action and the most affordable for anyone on a budget. A shuttle will transport you to New Camp with service starting at 11am on Friday/Saturday and ending at 2am each night.
HILLTOP PARKING OPTIONS: General Parking is located adjacent to Hilltop. Car Camping & RV parking options are also available for Hilltop camping.
MAIN CAMP: This is the furthest from the action but comes with a lot of additional benefits that the other sides don’t have which includes flushable toilets as well as showers. Shuttle service runs from Hilltop to Main Camp from 11am Fri/Sat until 2am each night. Distance from Main Camp to the shuttle stop is a 10minute walk.
MAIN CAMP PARKING OPTIONS: Main Camp attendees will park in Hilltop. Anyone camping in Main Camp may drop their luggage off at their sites on Thursday or Friday until 7PM and proceed to the general parking lot in Hilltop.
We are working to finalize a complete site map. In the meantime please reference the site map for Big Dub so you can see where New Camp, Hilltop, and Main Camp are at in relation to one another! Stage informaton & theme camps on this map are not accurate for Nightmare so please only pay attention to showers/bathrooms and the locations of Main Camp, New Camp, and Hilltop camping grounds.
