Sometimes, during the festival we need to get a couple of hours of sleep. In order to do that, on the ISLAND, you will find a Camping Area in the forest. During the night, the leaves of trees and the sky full of stars are your ceiling. By day you can enjoy the freshness of the river breeze.
The best part about this is that it’s completely FREE! Yes, you don’t have to pay anything to camp at 3 Smoked Olives Island Festival.
In the Camping Area you will also find the Food Court with all the goodies you need for a great meal.
#3SOF is best experienced with a TENT
We encourage you to bring one of your own and share it with your girlfriend, friends or other islanders you meet on the island.
If you do not have a tent, please e-mail us with the subject Tent SEEKER at firstname.lastname@example.org. Add in the e-mail all the details (how many people, sleeping bags, thermal sleeping pads, etc)
The tent gives you a feeling of freedom. You have your own gateway to nature and you don’t have to worry about keys.
And if by any chance you can’t find your way back to your tent you can always take a nap in the chill area filled with hammocks big enough for you and your girlfriend or best friend.
