“So do I float the river while listening to music?”

Not quite. These two activities happen separately. Festival attendees typically float the river in the morning or afternoon, and then head over to the concert venue once they’re done tubing. If you don’t want to float there’s no need to worry! You can buy a concert only ticket and simply come to enjoy the show. In addition, Float Fest offers the luxury of on-site camping to all festival attendees.
