Camping is included in your weekend ticket price. So just bring your camping gear. 24 hour security will be provided for you safety. Please note that our license stipulates no naked flames and therefore camping stoves and BBQs are not permitted anywhere on site.

There will be a delicious selection of foods from around the world, available until 2.00am, and a selection of reasonably priced bars with a large selection of refreshments including cocktails for your enjoyment.

You are permitted to bring your own food and a small quantity of alcohol (excluding glass bottles – see below) into the camp site but outside food and drink will not be permitted inside the main arena, with the exception of attendees with specific dietary requirements supported by a doctors note. This is a license requirement which must be enforced to allow the event to go ahead.

Alcohol Allowance

We are a small, independent and completely non-corporate event. We pride ourselves on keeping ticket prices low whist bringing you an amazing line up of top quality acts.  

The festival bar is a vital source of income for us and goes towards funding the great DJs and bands performing at the event. For this reason we have to set a limit on how much alcohol people bring into the festival.

The limit is set at;  

6 x cans of lager/cider
1 bottle of wine (decanted into a plastic bottle).
1 small bottle of spirits (decanted into a plastic bottle)

Please note that glass is not permitted anywhere on site.

Our reasonably priced and well-stocked bars are licensed to serve drinks until 2am and will host some great DJs over the weekend. We also have an amazing cocktail bar serving up tasty tipples!

Caravans and camper vans welcome. There will be a charge of £25 per vehicle. Campervan/caravan passes will need to be purchased as a ticket option at ticket purchase.


All tented structures have a set capacity that cannot be exceeded by law. If there is an act you are determined to see then please make sure you arrive in plenty of time to avoid disappointment. If an arena is full then we suggest finding an alternative stage to enjoy.
