Muddy Roots Europe Rules

There is one main rule that should be kept in mind the at all times:

“Don’t be a dick.”

Before doing anything please ask yourself if what you are about to do is something a dick would do. If so, kindly stop. That could mean sneaking in, stealing anything, driving drunk, being rude to performers and well you get the point. (Anybody caught sneaking people in will get the whole car load kicked out. No tolerance for stealing from your favorite fesitval and bands.)



No own drinks allowed in tent!

No firearms.

No bad attitudes. Violators will be asked to leave.

Unauthorized vending is not permitted.

No knifes bigger then wrist palm or all knives that can be locked. Please leave all other knives at campground and not at the festival area. It is a federal law!

Campgrounds and Camping

Can we leave the festival grounds and re-enter?

Yes, but you will need to go through the main entrance and vehicle checkpoint each time you leave and return. In order to keep the driving lanes open for those that need or wish to leave, it is important that everyone keeps their camping gear close to their vehicles and not in the driving lanes.

What will you be providing at the festival area?

There will be bathrooms, showers, hand wash stations, and potable water. Cowboy Up will be selling a variety of reasonably priced foods, beverages and snacks.

What emergency services will be available on site? What should I do if I need emergency assistance (medical, police, towing, locksmith, etc.)?

There will be 24 hour security, access to a locksmith and EMT ‘s. If you need emergency medical or police attention, contact the nearest security official or go to one at entry or medical tent. You may also locate a staff member or volunteer for assistance.

Where should I go if I lose my keys, my wallet or my friends?

Lost and found will be located at The Cowboy Up saloon. If you lose something, or someone, check there. If it or they are not there the first time, check again later. If you find something that needs to be returned to its owner, please drop it off at an information tent. It is a good idea to bring an extra set of keys. Obtain your key code before you leave home and bring it with you. This will cut down on the time it takes for the locksmith to duplicate your key if you lose it.

Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle

Just say NO to trash by choosing reusbles over disposables. Reducing and reusing before recycling? Choose and reuse refillable water bottles/canteens instead of single-use bottles; classic coolers instead of Styrofoam boxes; and sturdy cups, plates, and cutlery instead of disposable tableware.

Remember that littering includes everything from the biggest cups and cans to the smallest bottle caps and cigarette butts. Don’t forget an ashtray for your campsite; a good ol’ tin can will do the job. Smoking while walking? Just safely snuff your cigarette THEN toss into a trash can. No butts about it!

Clean up your campsite. Campin’ and conservin’? Leave your campsite cleaner than you found it. It’s that simple!

Leave your glass at home. It’s heavy, it breaks, and it’s a general pain in our recycling rears.
