What is the Good Vibe Collective?
The Good Vibe Collective is a small group of nomads that host and support nomadic community gatherings, concerts, art shows, after parties, organize campsite clean-ups; and share news from nomads around the United States.
Our events are ALWAYS OPEN TO EVERYONE regardless of what you drive, what you look like, or how you identify. Scroll down to check out our 6 Principles for Nomadic Community!

Our Six Principles for Nomadic Community
1. Welcome Diversity!
If you want to be here, then we want you to be here. When we host events and craft experiences for the community, we need to think about accessibility and creating safe, inclusive, comfortable spaces for all nomads to share their authentic selves. Diversity builds community resilience!
We ask all attendees for their support in making everyone feel welcome. Creepy, rude, abusive, or bigoted behavior will get you booted!
2. Practice Self Reliance
Everyone should be prepared to care for themselves and keep track of their companions and items at our events. The community can be a great source of inspiration and support, however it is the individual's responsibility to be aware of weather, cell signal, road conditions, and prepare for other personal needs. We usually do not provide water, bathrooms, security, electricity, or any other services at any of our events.
3. Acknowledge the Land
We believe it's important to learn about who's ancestral land we are on, who has jurisdiction today, how the land is being used, and what characteristic or inhabitants define the ecosystem. We expect all those attending an event produced by the Collective to educate themselves before attending and abide by local laws and restrictions, and to respect the land and its many inhabitants.
4. Acknowledge Your Power
We believe humans belong out in Nature, but we also acknowledge that we have a unique ability to damage the ecosystem as well. We also have the power to leave the spaces we occupy better than we found it and participate in the evolution and balance of the Land. Generally, we ask everyone to practice Leave No Trace outdoor ethics. This includes packing out all trash; abiding by campfire regulations; and removing all human or pet poop and TP (in most places burying waste is no longer acceptable). Your power to affect the world around you takes many forms; what privileges and influence do you have in life?
5. Spread Good Vibes
How can you add positive energy to this moment? A smile, hug, a goofy dance, offering your neighbor a hand with a project... Let's come together and spread good vibes wherever we roll. We encourage everyone attending an event to align their intentions with growth, learning, humility, and joy! Let's enjoy this journey and bring others along!
6. Share your Gifts
Everyone has innate gifts and talents. By sharing these with others, we create a community where support can come from within. In lieu of tickets, we ask that you bring your authentic self and share your passions and abilities with the community. We believe that we already are what we are looking for! Come as you are, and please share what you’re able. Community thrives on generosity.
