If you and seven of your friends can round up $7,500, you might be interested in the Captain’s Pack.

Fans that would rather rough it than stay in a fancy hotel can partake in camping at the American Turners. The campground is located less than five miles from festival grounds on the banks of the Ohio River. Camping is available for $30 a day, $75 for the weekend or $150 for the VIP treatment.
