• We have a large camping area at our new location - so there is plenty of room to spread out. 

  • You are welcome to bring your car onto the campsite, and park next to your tent or caravan. Motorhomes and campervans are welcome too. 

  • Camping is only available with a camping ticket. Camping tickets are now per pitch rather than per person.

  • Access to the Campsites are from 2pm on Thursday (for those with a Weekend Extra ticket), or 10am on Friday (with a Weekend ticket). 

  • Alternatively, there is a privately owned campsite at Maythorne, about 5 minutes drive away (01636 812128)

  • Showers and proper flush toilets are conveniently situated. 


  • Glamping is available with the brilliant Tee & Toast (details here). You must have a festival ticket and a camping pass booked in order to "glamp".

All Campers

  • Please remember that noise carries further than you think.

  • Please consider neighbours when playing live acoustic music, radios or CD players.

  • Additionally, there are residents close to the Festival site and the Festival can only happen with their co-operation and goodwill.

Car Parking

  • For campers, car parking is available free of charge next to your tent/caravan. However cars must remain on the campsite for the duration of the festival. If you wish to use your car during the festival you must park in the Day Car Park. 

  • Free day parking is provided near the Festival entrance.


  • We may need to introduce campsite measures in response to Covid-19 so please keep an eye out for our Covid information section here
