DCMF’S Overflow Camping!


2017 Camping info coming soon!

As Dawson City swells with seasonal workers, travellers, and tourists, it can be tough to find a place to stay during the festival weekend. Thankfully we’ll have you covered this summer! 

Purchase your Festival Pass

 Purchase a weekend pass to the Yukon's biggest summer event, the 39th Annual Dawson City Music Festival - our Overflow Campground is open to ticket-holders only.

DCMF looks forward to staging another high-quality and fun festival this year, featuring incredible artists from near and far! DCMF is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization and can only continue with your support – we need to sell weekend passes, merchandise, and beer!

Please encourage your friends and family to buy their weekend passes today and visit our wonderful little town! Oh, and did we forget to mention? …This year’s artists are going to ROCK.


The DCMF Overflow Campground is a temporary site for tents, vehicles, and RV’s, located at Crocus Bluffs which is a few minutes’ walk from the main festival site. Please note that there are no power, water, or sewer hookups, but there are several sani-dump stations around town.

This accommodation option is only available to DCMF vendors, ticket-holders, and 15-hour volunteers. 

Please note that the Overflow Campground is only open the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights of the festival weekend

Please respect our community. Do not camp on private property, in the bushes, or in/around what you think are vacant properties. Dawson City is a hospitable place and we want our local residents to feel safe and respected over the DCMF weekend.


Registration information coming soon!
