The carpark will open at 1pm on Friday 23rd February for campers to arrive and set up early – please exchange your tickets for wristbands at the Wristband Exchange upon entering the gate.  The festival site opens at 5pm.  You will only be allowed in at 1pm to park and camp, so please factor this into your travel.

The festival programme finishes at 8pm on the Sunday night, although campers are welcome to stay on site until 11am on Monday 26th February – please be ready and packed to leave the park by then, though.

Nobody is permitted to sleep in the car park.

Families are welcome to bring their own tents to camp and are allowed to set up anywhere in the designated camping areas. However, only campervans/caravans who have booked a spot in advance with us will be allowed onto the site.  So please be aware of this.

On arrival our stewards will direct you to a parking spot. Your ticket entitles you to free parking for the duration of the festival. Vehicles are left at your own risk. If you require an accessible parking spot please let us know in advance.

There will be no festival goers vehicles allowed past the car park and into the festival site to keep all festival-goers, especially the small ones, safe.

The camping is a couple of minutes walk from the carpark. We can’t guarantee that there will be volunteers available to help you carry your camping gear from the car park to the tent so you should plan to do this yourself and only bring what you can reasonably manage.
