~ TICKETS AND WRISTBANDS

Tickets will either be issued as a physical ticket or as an E-Ticket depending on where and when you bought it. If you are unsure of what form your ticket is, check the confirmation email from when you purchased your ticket.

Bring your ticket (either physical or printed E-Ticket) with you to the festival where it will be exchanged for a wristband. We can also scan your ticket on a mobile phone providing the bar code is clearly visible.

Over 18’s will be issued with a separate wristband allowing the purchase of alcohol at the festival. Proof of age WILL be required if you look under 25.

No day tickets are available for the festival, but you can come and go as you please once you have your wristband.

~ DO I HAVE TO CAMP?

No. Whilst all tickets include camping as standard, once you have received your wristband you are able to come and go as you wish. So if camping isn’t your thing then feel free to travel up on each day.

If you drive to the festival and want to leave at the end of the day, please let a parking steward know when you arrive so you don’t have any issues getting your car out.

All of our Camper-van slots are sold out for this year unfortunately. If you have not purchased a camper-van ticket already you will not be able to bring one along.

The majority of the arena is on hardstanding ground, including the Main Stage and Wooden Barn Stage. Both of these stages are also undercover so it will be possible to escape the elements.

The campsite and carpark however are all grass so should we have a typical English summer, be prepared for a bit of mud. If it rains we will do everything we can to keep things comfortable, but we can’t promise your white t-shirt will leave the same colour it arrived.
