Gratitude Migration is an ideal alternate reality, but there are still a few rules to keep us safe, happy, and healthy.
Camping: Please camp only in authorized areas. Remember, this is a residential area, so please be respectful of the local environment.
There is no camping on the main festival grounds by the Gratitude Stage, or inside the Mind/Body/Spirit environment.
No civilian drones are permitted on premises without proper registration. For the safety and privacy of our participants, please leave your drones at home.
Sound: No amplified sound systems will be allowed in the camping area, aside from approved sound camp environments. Personal speakers are ok, but please keep volume low.
Power: Personal solar driven generators are allowed in the camping area. However, gas generators are restricted for safety reasons. We will have limited charging stations available at LNT & Sustainability Stations, however please be mindful that since power is limited, we recommend charging up what you need beforehand and learning to live as o -the-grid as possible - it's only three days!
Bonfires: Fires are permitted in designated fire pits only, which must be a minimum of 10 feet away from all structures, tents, vehicles, and art. Burning plastic or inorganic materials is prohibited (and stupid).
Fire Spinning: Fire spinning is ONLY permitted in designated performance areas on site for designated performers who have filled the appropriate paperwork and training requirements. Open fire spinning is only permissible during spin jams from sunrise to 9am, and is only open to participants with insurance that stipulates Gratitude Migration on their paperwork. Learn more here.
Fire performers may not bring their own fuel, all fuel will be provided onsite except with special permissions. Please do not bring fuel as it will be confiscated at security.
Drinking Water: Large tanks of free drinking water are available for refilling throughout the beach. In order to show our Gratitude for the environment, we encourage you to use a reusable, refillable water bottle (available to purchase onsite and online). There will be no plastic water bottles for sale on site, and we urge you not to bring any either.
Food & Beverage: We have partnered with various delicious local vendors in the New Jersey area, focusing on sustainable, ethically sourced food that is as environmentally conscious as it is tasty and nourishing. Our Culinary Cove food truck lineup will be located just by the gate.
Alcohol: As it turns out, NJ state law prevents us from allowing in outside alcoholic beverages. We would hate for you to carry it all the way and have it taken by security. Don't bring booze. Seriously. But never fear - we got you onsite. We'll have bodegas selling beer and other beverages as well as crafted bar drinks to keep your thirst quenched. Less schlepping, more fun!
MEDIA PASS Code of Conduct
We love our photographers and videographers and would love to have you participate at Gratitude Migration! Out of respect for our participants, we do require anyone wishing to shoot the event to register for a documentary/media pass. If approved, you will receive a special badge that you must wear at all times while photographing the event.
Even while wearing a media pass, please ask for consent before photographing!
Swimming and Beach REGULATIONS
All areas are swim at your own risk. We have three designated swimming areas on the beach that is patrolled by our certified Life Guard Team, Friday from 9am to 7pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am to 6pm. Each swimming area will be clearly marked with lit-up buoys. Due to safety risks, NO NIGHT SWIMMING is allowed.
For your safety, we encourage floaties, rafts, and other fun devices to be used only in the designated swimming areas during daylight hours.
The laws of the state of New Jersey prohibit full nudity on this beach.
