Will there be any COVID safety precautions?
We encourage vaccinations, and think it’s great if you chooose to wear a mask. That being said, we are following city mandates and will not be requiring either for entry.
Can I enter anytime? Is there re-entry?
Yes, you can enter any time and re-entry is allowed! If you buy a day pass, re-entry will only be allowed on the day for which your pass was issued.
Will set times be posted in advance?
Day lineups have already been announced and are up on Resident Advisor. Exact set times will be announced two weeks prior to the event.
What’s the venue like? Is there a map of the space?
This year, Slingshot will be taking place inside the Durham Fruit and Maison Fauna’s pop-up space, Sometimes. Since both spaces exist in the same complex, it’s easy to travel within festival grounds and between stages. You can check out some of the Durham Fruit stages on their website.
Where is the closest bus station, train station, and/or airport?
We’re located less than six blocks from both the Durham Amtrak Station and the Durham Greyhound Station. The closest airport is RDU (Raleigh-Durham), with busses running from RDU to the Durham Amtrak daily.
Can I take photos at the festival?
We encourage taking photos at the festival, but consent MUST be granted if you’d like to take photos of others. This rule of consent also applies to artists, with the exception of when they’re performing.
No professional photography allowed without a media pass.
