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 & Camping Areas
New Camp, Premium Camping
and is the location of ALL STAGES, FOOD VENDING, and ENTERTAINMENT on the New Camp Playa. Two main stages will reside in the New Camp field and another inside the Old Forest. One of the New Camp Playa stages 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 1000 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! New Camp is located one half mile North of the intersection of PA RT-26 and RT-484, Parking in New Camp is located just across PA RT26 within easy proximity to tenting areas.
is also available for camping and is has ticketing designed for anyone who is attending Nightmare Festival on a budget.
is located in a new, spacious field with plenty of space for tents and vehicles which resides close to Hilltop Camp. All patrons must have a Hilltop wristband to car camp. A separate car camping pass is required for your vehicle which must be purchased as an add-on.
Main Camp, Premium Camping
is very special for NightMare, as it is where Four Quarters holds it’s traditional Samhain celebration. Main Camp is quiet and respectful, and of course include access to flush toilets and hot showers. All Main Camp registrations include an invitation to the Four Quarters Samhain Celebration, an additional $15 pre-registration will include their famous “Feast of The Dead,” Saturday night.
will run on hard-top roads between all of these locations from 11am on Friday & Saturday until 3am each night. These are different shuttles than what you may have experienced at Big Dub and will set the tone for how we move people around in the future. A full fleet will be available to make sure you do not have to wait to get from Hilltop to New Camp and vice versa.
Nightmare Festival, regardless of its location, has the tendency to be cold in the late evening hours. We will be creating 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.
