Pack some blankets and get back to nature, sleeping under the stars
Weekend tickets include free camping on Friday, Saturday & Sunday nights :-)
There are two main family camping fields with plenty of space for groups to camp together and kids to run around. The campsites open at 12noon on Friday 27th and last admissions will be at 10pm. This is a family festival so we kindly request that, especially in the evenings and through the night, noise is kept to a minimum in the campsites.
If you are arriving by car, you must leave it in the car park. Cars will not be allowed anywhere beyond the main car park. As in 2015, this year we will be operating a free continuous buggy taxi service which will operate all weekend. You’ll be able to hop on at the edge of the car park and get off at the edge of the camping fields. It might also be useful for getting you back to your tent from the cocktail bar at the end of the night…
Toilets and Showers
There are toilets situated around the site and they will be marked on the festival map. Depending on where you pitch your tent, you may be a little way from the loos, but they should be no more than a five minute walk. The toilets are a mixture of portable loos and stand alone trailers with flushable loos. If you notice that toilets have run out of loo paper or are getting a bit dirty then please let a steward know.
As with previous years, there will also be hot showers freely available. The location of these will be marked on the festival map and it’s worth highlighting that they can get very busy, especially in the mornings. If you hate queuing, we suggest a sneaky mid-afternoon wash. Either that or just stay dirty for a few days :-)
There will also be hand wash stations and drinking water points at various locations around the site.
Cooking and Fires
You are welcome to to cook your own food on camp stoves or portable barbecues, but you must ensure they are raised off the grass. Please also make sure you’re well away from your tent and definitely not inside your tent or porch. Apart from the fire risk there is a real danger of carbon monoxide poisoning so please be sensible.
Unfortunately, open camp fires are not permitted anywhere in the campsite. Candles and paper or Chinese lanterns are also not allowed. Instead, we will be running a communal camp fire where you can warm up, toast marshmallows and sing a few songs.
If you are registered disabled or have any special access requirements related to camping, please contact us before you arrive so that we can make arrangements to suit your needs. Please see our accessibility page for more information.
Campervans & Caravans
If you are bringing a live-in vehicle of any description, you must purchase an additional camper van pass before you arrive at the festival. Please see the camper van page for more information.
