This year, The Wander Down will be divided into 2 camps:

The Jam Camp and The Quiet Camp.


Please review your lodging options, and after you've purchased your Weekend Pass, call Touch of Nature at 618.453.1121 to reserve your preferred lodging option.


While kids 15 and under get free admission into the festival, housing is not included.


Single day lodging options will be ‘as available’ after day passes have gone on sale around Labor Day.


We love that Summer camp - in our case, Autumn camp - dining hall experience! That's why Touch of Nature’s professional catering team will be providing delicious and healthy food for your consumption in beautiful Freeberg Dining Hall, which also serves as our backup weather location. Vegetarian options will be available. They will also be offering excellent Coffee, snacks and vending festival food outside of meal times. Meals are not included in the price of your ticket but can be purchased on site.



Touch of Nature will be providing a bar with a wide variety of alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages.



The Wander Down is a dog-friendly festival, but there are a few very important rules. Dogs are allowed outside on the festival grounds as long as they are on a leash. You must clean up after your dog. Dogs are NOT allowed in any of the buildings. This includes the lodging buildings. Dogs may not be tied up to trees or staked out overnight. Please consider whether your dog is festival material, is not aggressive or an excessive barker, before deciding to bring them to the Wander Down. This is the policy of Southern Illinois University and they take it seriously.


Instrument Check:

There will be an instrument check area where people can securely stow their instruments when they are not using them.
