Medical prescriptions must be in their original bottle with the label attached. Your ID must match the name on the label. All federal and state laws apply at Woodkey.

Those bringing medicines to the event should declare them to security during any search and may have them stored in the medical center if required.

Medical professionals are on-site 24 hours a day. They are located at the end of the vendor stands to the right of the Main Stage.

In an emergency, if you are not near a medical tent, find a staff person with a radio, or notify the nearest event staff member. If you are not certain whether it is an emergency, assume it is and get help immediately.

In the event that you find yourself light-headed, sit down and ask a staff member or volunteer for assistance to the medic.

Festival staff and volunteers are dedicated to helping you feel safe and secure at all times. If one of them asks you to do something differently, please listen to their direction. In the event of an emergency, please listen to and follow the directions of the emergency professionals.

Woodkey cares for the safety and responsibility of all attendees.

Look out for others. If you see something, say something. Our security staff will be more than happy to resolve any issues or concerns.

A Note on Headdresses and Threatening Messages:

At Woodkey, all should feel safe, comfortable, and welcome.

In this spirit, if you are someone who would normally bring Native American headdresses to the festival, please leave them at home. Out of respect for this community, it is inappropriate to wear headdresses outside of traditional ceremonies.

Additionally, while we support diversity in signs, totems, and articles of clothing, words or images that are divisive or might explicitly upset others, such as political, Confederate, FJB, or BLM flags, are not welcome.

Woodkey reserves the right to confiscate items deemed to be in violation of these policies at its discretion.

Leave No Trace

Please be sure to keep the woods within the festival clean. Woodkey has a standing "take nothing and leave nothing" policy.

Thank you for making choices that support and inspire all members of the Woodkey Fam. We hope you have a great time!

LOST & FOUND

Lost and Found is located in the Concessions stand.

    SULLY

    Sully Detroit Artist Woodkey Festival

    “Sully” is the brainchild and nickname of Detroit-based producer, Christopher Sullivant. Weaving guttural sound design and intricate textures into wide melodic soundscapes, Sully has proven himself as a force to be reckoned with.

    After refining his production skills from the highly acclaimed Icon Collective, Sully first stepped into the electronic music scene in March of 2019. With a series of prolific self-releases such as “Frequency Shift” and “Quake” under his belt, Sully made his WAKAAN debut in late 2019, where he continues to call home for his intoxicating sound.

    Sully embraces the beautiful juxtaposition of releasing and performing different genres of music while still maintaining a distinct sound to blanket his catalog. From dubstep to trap, drum & bass, hip hop, and more, there are no limitations to Sully’s artistry.

    A Hundred Drums

    A Hundred Drums Woodkey Festival 2023

    Thunderous low end and pulsating rhythm embody the powerful music of A Hundred Drums.

    Stomping the stage in a tangle of hair and a blur of motion, her high-octane live show is the result of years of searching for that perfect primal pulse that connects humans on the dance floor. Since she was a teenager, Gabrielle Watson has been cultivating a sound that encapsulates experimental hip-hop, psychedelic bass, and indigenous hand drums. After a decade of crafting her sonic signature in cutting-edge spaces, A Hundred Drums has emerged onto the main stage to bring the sounds of the underground to the masses.

    N2N

    N2N Woodkey Festival 2023

    Over the last eight years, N2N has become broadly recognized for his blistering marathon sets fueled by infectiously energetic house music. In 2018, he was mentioned by Billboard in its list of the nine best sets from Burning Man, and the year prior he had the opportunity to perform for a global audience in New York’s Mixmag Lab. A lifelong student of music, his sets seamlessly blending genres have become crowd favorites across the country. In the studio, his versatility shines through, as his groovy feel-good style has 'landed him major label signings as well as support from the world’s biggest DJs, including Fatboy Slim, Chris Lake, David Guetta, and Idris Elba. 2022 saw N2N root himself in the scene with a slew of releases on Glasgow Underground, and with multiple records forthcoming on deadmau5's house imprint hau5trap, he has cemented himself as one of the genre's brightest rising stars.

    Champagne Drip

    Champagne Drip Woodkey Festival 2023

    Champagne Drip, the musical incarnation of Los Angeles based producer Samuel Pool, was born from the philosophy that innovation springs from inspiration. The statement ringing true throughout the years, Pool has proven himself to be a trailblazer within the bass music sector of electronic music. With seasoned expertise predominantly rooted in genres such as dubstep and jungle, his discography consists of countless renowned records, right alongside his multiple headline tours and appearances at some of the world's largest festivals.

    Widely known for his sonic concoctions of diverse textures and rich melodies swathed in his decidedly uplifting project, Champagne Drip is set to continue skyrocketing upon a purely upwards trajectory. Consistently pulling inspiration from his own surrounding environment, his sound is an ever -evolving source that naturally inspires others in turn.
