As Summer Camp transitions into the Solshine Reverie era, the festival is staying true to its new identity by revamping its layout to evoke an experience akin to entering a reverie – a dreamlike state. The streamlined festival navigation will be reflected in the event’s increased intentionality; while Solshine will preserve the essence of Summer Camp, the refurbished festival will come with meaningful updates. 

Solshine Reverie has updated Summer Camp’s previous stage layout to create a more fruitful, efficient experience for guests. Notably, the festival transitions from three main stages to two, bidding farewell to the Sunshine and Starshine Mainstages. By removing the two stages, Solshine Reverie is fostering a greater emphasis on the Moonshine Stage and the Campfire Stage (which is being elevated to the size of the previous Starshine Stage). This consolidation allows for a seamless transition between genres on both stages, and allows for less overall overlap so attendees can see exactly who they want. 
In other exciting news, the festival’s official mainstage curfew is now being extended from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. This additional time will allow guests to experience even more music at Solshine’s biggest hub, before heading back to their campgrounds.
