Are drones allowed?

No. The only drone activity allowed will be by PPIR or companies that have been approved, prior to the event.

Is it o.k. to bring marijuana?

No, and here is the reason why:
Amendment 64 does NOT permit the consumption of marijuana “openly and publicly.” So, remember that you can still get a ticket for doing so, similar to open container laws for drinking in public. There are very few legal places that allow on-site consumption, unlike what you might find in Amsterdam. Even though concert venues and festivals may be considered ‘private’, consumption of marijuana is prohibited. 

Is there ADA parking available?

YES! ADA parking spots will be available on the infield, with appropriate placards. Violators are subject to ticketing to being towed.
