Festival and Camping FAQs

Q: It sounds like it’s going to be exhausting. Will I get any time to relax?
A: Of course. We all know rest is key to health and well-being. You can do as much or as little as you’d like and there will be plenty of opportunity to rest and relax throughout the weekend.

Q: Can I bring my caravan or campervan? 
A: Campervans are allowed but caravans are not. If bringing a campervan, you will need to book a pitch with our accommodation partner, Hotel Bell Tents, once you have made your ticket purchase. You will be directed to the accommodation website once you have purchased your ticket with us.  Please note that if you do not tell us in advance, your campervan may be refused access on arrival. 

Q: Will you have electric hook up and waste disposal for my campervan? 
A: Electric hook up for campervans will be available for an additional charge (please note this must be pre-booked and cannot be requested once on site).  We ask that you either use the festival toilets provided or take your chemical toilet waste home with you. You are NOT permitted to empty chemical toilets in the main festival toilets or anywhere on the festival site.

 Q: What do I need to bring if I am camping? 
A: Once you have purchased your ticket with us you will be directed to our accommodation partner, Hotel Bell Tent, where you can book your pitch. There is a £70 charge per pitch which you MUST book.

Camping kit, torches, sleeping bags, warm clothes, towels, wash bag. If glamping, you will receive many of these items so please check the camping page for details.

Q: Are there cash points on site? 
A: No, however all food outlets and bars take credit cards. You are welcome to bring some cash just in case but please note that due to the COVID pandemic, our aim is to have a cashless festival as far as possible.

Q: Where do we park? 
A: Parking is in the field next to the campsite, it’s not far to walk and we will have some strong people to hand to help carry. Don’t bring the kitchen sink though!
