As with most festivals, parking is separate to the campsites, so be prepared for a short walk from the car parks to the camping areas.
A dedicated safe and secure campsite for you and your family.
You must hold a WEEKEND FAMILY CAMPING ticket to acccess the family campsite.
The Tent Commandments
- Rule number 1: Don’t be a #FestivalFail – bring a tent! Or at least know where you’re sleeping.
- Go for a double skin tent, this means it has two layers of fabric between you and the elements. Single skin tents flood easily.
- Bring a tent that is one size too big, for example a three-person tent if two of you are staying in it. This will give enough space for you and your stuff.
- Festival campsites are tight on space. Don’t take an overly large tent if you don’t need it.
- New tent? Practice putting it up and down before you go. Check you have all the poles and sufficient tent pegs. A mallet is useful for hammering tent pegs in.
- You might have the same tent as 100 other campers; make it stand out with a flag or something recognisable.
- Use your guy ropes and secure them properly, same with your tent pegs. Heavy wind can blow your tent away if it is not pinned down.
- Never leave valuables in your tent when you are out. When sleeping, put your valuables at the bottom of your sleeping bag.
- Wind and rain are a camper’s worst enemies! If the rain is particularly bad, try to lift your clothes off the ground of your tent in case of flooding.
- Take your tent – and your other belongings – away with you when you leave the festival. If it’s bust, take it down and bin it yourself, don’t just leave it up in the campsite.
