Help or Emergencies:
Workers will be available 24 hours a day to handle problems. They can be identified by their staff t-shirts. If you need to report an injury, a fire, have too rowdy neighbors (we strive for a family environment), or want assistance with any other problem in your area, these are the people to go to. You can also report concerns at the information station.

Beaver Island Music Festival is dedicated to the collection and recycling of all reusable materials, such as glass, tin, and cans. Look for collection containers located all around the festival grounds. Please take time to clean up your campsite, dispose of your trash, and make use of the recycling containers. Keep our facility, as it was intended and please use caution when smoking cigarettes. We ask that you be respectful of others when smoking and to dispose of butts in the designated fire pits to avoid accidental fires and to keep the grounds clean (FACT: It takes 9 months for a cigarette butt to decompose)
