Welcome to Osmosis in the trees

Osmosis in the Trees asks first and foremost that you respect one another and the land 🙏

Osmosis is committed to being a safer space where racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, aggressive behavior and unwanted touching are not tolerated. We're counting on everyone to bring a positive, communal attitude of respect and care for each other as we come together to create this space.

Keep in mind that there is zero tolerance for theft, vandalism or violence. You will be banished forever if you break this rule.

Driving & Parking

Osmosis in the trees is a 4-5 hours drive from Portland depending on traffic. There will be ample free parking on site. The road leading up to the venue can get a bit congested so we recommend getting there early! Carpooling is strongly encouraged.

Lodging

There are 2 options for lodging for the duration of the festival:
  1. Camping, which is included with admission, or
  2. Renting a treehouse

CAMPING
Camping is included with every Osmosis in the Trees admission ticket. Camping areas are located throughout several large fields directly adjacent to the treehouse area.

RENT A TREEHOUSE
For those seeking the ultimate experience, a limited number of bespoke treehouses are available for rent, offering an elevated perspective amidst nature's embrace. Email us for info on availability and check out treehouses.com to see a menu of  treehouses.

We all love to party, but we all need to rest sometimes. Please be mindful of your noise in camping areas during the early morning hours.

Check-in / out

Check-in begins at 3pm on Friday and all attendees must depart the property by 3pm on Sunday.

On arrival, an attendant will check your ticket and direct you towards a camping area or your treehouse.

Leave no trace

Respect for the site is essential and we need all attendees to help us maintain the natural beauty of the grounds - this means no glitter, confetti, etc. Leave No Trace - ample trash, recycling, and compost cans will be provided. Fully clean your cabin or campsite when you go. Do not leave any trash on the ground, period. Cigarette butts must be fully extinguished and properly disposed of. Please do not throw butts in the fire pit. This is our first time working with the venue, let’s do this right so we can all come back next year :-)

SMOKING
Smoking is allowed in the tree village area. There is absolutely no smoking in the fields or woods surrounding it, including the stages. This is no joke. The surrounding area is extremely prone to wildfires and you don’t want to be the jerk who causes one. We will very actively enforce this policy and reserve the right to immediately eject anyone who does not comply. Finally, please do not smoke in the treehouses. It is against property policy.

Facilities

There will be ample portable toilets situated throughout campsites and in the treehouse village.

Swimming

There is a beautiful natural pool on site. No lifeguards on duty so please look out for one another. Swimming after dark is not allowed.

Don’t forget to bring a towel and a bathing suit if you’d like to take a dip!

Food

Food cart vendors will be available every day with affordable meat, vegetarian, and vegan options. You are welcome to bring your own food to prepare in the camping area.

Safety

There will be a care tent on site stocked with first aid supplies, Narcan, ear protection, fentanyl test trips, gum, and more. The care tent also provides a safe, comfortable and soothing space for anyone feeling overwhelmed.

If anything or anyone makes you feel unsafe or overwhelmed, find one of our care team members for support. At night, they’ll have green glow bracelets at the back of the dance floors. They carry earplugs, gum, glucose packets and electrolyte tablets. If you need help during the day, please approach the care tent, security, or a bartender. Don’t hesitate to seek their help for issues big or small.

We have a wonderful and supportive community. Let’s all look out for each other!

HYDRATION & REST
Drinking water will be available at various sites throughout the property. Remember that humans physiologically require sleep.

What to bring

Cash/Card/ID - Some vendors and food trucks accept cards and electronic payments, but some beverage vendors may not. Since there are few outlets for phone charging and cell service is limited, vendors may have trouble processing payments as well. As a result, we recommend you bring cash to the event. In some instances precious metals may be accepted as well.

Waterproof camping tent, sleeping pad, blanket/sleeping bag - We don’t expect rain, but be prepared for it.

Warm clothes, extra socks, shoes & rain gear - daytime temperatures in Takilma in early autumn are usually quite warm, but the nights can get chilly.

Refillable water bottle - Free drinking water will be readily available throughout the site.

Flashlight or Headlamp - There will be ambient lighting throughout the grounds, but much of the site will be dark at night and you’ll walk through the woods a lot.

Swimsuit and towel - There is a natural swimming pool on site. Swimming after dark is not allowed.

External battery - Outlets might be hard to come by. Charge up and come prepared.

Sunscreen, bugspray, wet wipes, and anything else you need to feel comfortable camping outdoors.

A good attitude - All are welcome at Osmosis in the trees. Please treat attendees and staff in a kind and respectful manner. This is family.

Do NOT bring

Absolutely No: Weapons, dogs or other pets, fireworks, confetti/glitter, personal sound systems or instruments, glow sticks, etc.

Open flames of any kind are prohibited. This means no candles or fires at your campsite, folks. If you prefer to bring and cook your own food, you may use a camp stove, but please, please remember that this area is a tinderbox. Cook on a sturdy flat surface above the ground. Turn your stove off immediately after use. Use good judgment.

A bad attitude - Discriminatory behavior, cruel or abusive language, aggression towards others, burdensome entitlement, and leering will get you kicked out and banned from future events.

No pets, children, or people without tickets. Seriously, NO DOGS, there are farm dogs on the property that don’t take kindly to unfamiliar animals.

What if it rains?

It’s the end of the summer season, so come prepared! All 3 stages are outside. If the weather is looking really bad, then we will make an effort to have covered areas as much as possible to keep everyone comfy.

Historically there is a very small percentage chance of rain in Takilma for this particular weekend.

Lost & Found


Security will hold on to items turned in for lost and found. If you lose something, find a security person or other event staff (i.e. person with walkie talkie) and they will help you.

Press & Photography

If you would like to create any media related to Osmosis in the trees (photo series, written features, etc.), please get in touch for approval beforehand.
