Community Hammock Grove

We’re a community here so let’s come together to create a community space for rest. All are welcome to hang up hammocks within this area and all Blue Oxers are welcome to occupy any unattended hammock. Unfortunately, we do not have space for everyone to hang a hammock, but if we share, then we can all enjoy this relaxing space together.

*If you don’t want anyone else using your hammock, then please refrain from hanging your hammock in the Community Hammock Grove, located to the side of the main stage.

Thank you sharing and caring!
