Antelope Point Marina Venue - see map
One of two marina venues, Antelope Point Marina will play host to live music all day from 10am-10pm just outside of its "floating" restaurant. One stage will be directly in front of the lake/pool area so the audience can enjoy the music while swimming in the temperate waters. The marina will also be the launch point of the Antelope Island Poker Run where boaters will boat around the lake picking up five poker cards at various beaches/stops to see who can drum up the best hand. On Sunday, the POWELLAPALOOZA Wake Board competition will ensue on Antelope's cable-tow wakeboard competition course equipped with floating railslides and jumps. The marina will also be renting out houseboats acting as hotels (houseboats that don't leave the marina in order to discount the price) that sleep up to 20 persons, have hot tubs, a water slide, 2 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, fold out couches, full kitchens, bars, etc... Check out the Houseboat Rental tab under the General Info button for more info.
The Antelope Water Taxi will be available all 4 days for transportation from the marina to the 'Palooza Beach' across from the public ramp. Hours are 'open'. As long as there is a request they will transport.
Price is $35 for a weekend pass (wristband). No pass no travel.
Tickets available in the Village at the Antelope Point Outfitter desk. Only one price is available.
Wahweap Marina Venue - see map
The other of the two marina venues, Wahweap will play host to daytime live music at its outdoor hotel pool as well as a beach party (bands playing on a houseboat pulled up to a beach) near the boat loading ramp. Depending on festival capacity, the campground amphitheater may also be utilized. Each day the "Canyon Princess", a 100+ capacity luxury tour yacht, will tour the lake with band performances, cocktails, and dinner.

POWELLAPALOOZA is a four-day, four night camping festival in the middle of the desert. As such it is important for "YOU," the festival goers, to be prepared for desert camping. Below is a list of items that you should bring with you on your trip:
Tent (no holes and a working zipper), Tarp, Sleeping Bags, Raingear, Extra pair Shoes/Socks, Bug Spray, Blanket/pad/lawn chairs, Sunscreen, Hat for shade, Sunglasses, Umbrella for Shade, Water Container, personal mister, Towel, Swim Suit, Trash Bags, Extra Toilet paper (just in case), Lantern/Flashlight with extra batteries, Flag to identify campsite, Hand Sanitizer, Small Luggage lock for your tent (please don't bring valuables), Earplugs, Pen and Paper for the many friends, memories, and setlists, Extra set of keys, Vehicle Key code (to duplicate your lost key), Small First Aid Kit. If you forget any items there will be a on site store to help you with your needs.
Please remember that the desert contains various critters including snakes, lizards, fire ants, etc... The property owners have done their best to relocate these critters off of the property. However to ensure your safety we ask that you please sleep in a tent, vehicle, or enclosable area. If you are sleeping in a tent please make sure that you keep your tent zipped up at all times to prevent a critter from sneaking in and snuggling up with you.
The beer vendors will check your ID and you will be given a separate wristband that will allow you to purchase beer. In an effort to GO GREEN, we will be selling reusable cups. Your first beer purchase will be $5-6. Re-usable cup re-fills will then be $3-4. SO KEEP YOUR CUP!
There will be an abundance of potable water available to you for free if you have a container to use. Please bring a water bottle. Water bottles and an assortment of drinks will also be sold on site.
There will be ample porta potties located at various locations throughout the festival grounds. There will also be a "Men’s Room" porta pottie which includes 5 urinals to help keep porta pottie lines to a minimum. Hand Sanitizer and toilet paper will be provided however we encourage you to bring an extra roll and hand sanitizer just in case. Please be respectful and do not damage the porta potties or put foriegn objects in them.
The desert is a harsh environment that includes high day temperatures / low night temperatures, cactus, cliffs, loose sharp rocks, critters (snakes, lizards, insects, coyotes, etc...), storms, flash floods, etc... To avoid injury and to have a fun, safe, exciting festival experience we advise you to read the following tips:
Stay hydrated. Watch where you are stepping, sitting, and reaching. Desert Critters like to hide under rocks, in crevices, in bushes/broken branches, and burrows. Cactus can grow anywhere there is sand, so watch your step. If you see yellow caution tape or orange safety fence there is likely a cliff or other hazard. Please avoid these areas. Please keep a flashlight with you at night and be aware of your surroundings. Please do not throw rocks off cliffs as there may be people below. Also, if you are under a cliff be alert for falling rocks. Please no fires. The desert is very dry and gusty and fires are easily spread. Do not camp under cliffs or in riverbeds as falling rocks and flash floods are very dangerous.
There will be a safety team, first aid tent, and staffed EMTs/medics on site in case anyone is injured. If you or someone you know is hurt, please notify a safety team member and head to the first aid tent. For serious emergencies a life flight/ambulance will be called.
Parking is $10 for a weekend pass. Parking is first come first serve. There will be long term parking for those who intend to stay for the duration of the festival. Short term parking will be available for locals and those who are coming and going regularly. Handicap parking will be available. Additional parking will be available at the Elks Lodge.
Children under 12 are free and family camping is available. Parents will be responsible for their children at all times during the festival. Each child will be required to wear an information wristband in case they are separated from their parents. We will provide an inside and outside play area for children of all ages.
There will be a tent set up with a crafting area, reading corner, block building area, and baby area (carpeted, pillowed area with toys geared to children 2 yrs old and younger). There will be a fenced in outdoor area for the kids to play with hula - hoops, tonka trucks and other fun toys. Feel free to bring your own bikes, wagons, blocks or any other toys to use and share. There will be one adult supervisor on at all times while the children's area is open. The supervisor is not a babysitter and is in no way shape or form responsible for your child. You need to be around the childrens area and keep an eye on your child(ren).
