What can I expect in the campsite?
Firstly, lots of space with soft grass for you to make your bed. There will be hot showers, plenty of loos, children’s activities in the morning, security and first aid. You cannot drive into the campsites at any time due to fire regulations.
I’m bringing the family is there a quieter area to camp?
Yes we have a Family Camping & Quiet Camping. More information can be found here.
Is it far from the car park to the camping field?
No, it’s not far. Dependant on where you park and where you pitch your tent, it is approximately less than a 4 min walk, please bear in mind you must also collect/exchange your tickets for wristbands before accessing the campsite.
Do I need a camping ticket to book Boutique Camping?
Yes, please make sure you have purchased your Festival ticket prior to booking Boutique Camping.
What about boutique camping?
We’ll have a whole array of luxurious camping options for you soon – from tipis, yurts and squrts, complete with barrow boys to help you with luggage from your car, luxury toilets and showers, a private area to chill out and relax all for the exclusive use of our boutique campers.
What do I need to bring to access the boutique camping area?
If you have booked boutique camping you will receive a personalised email with unique car park code, and will need to bring photo ID to access the site. Wristbands will be given out on site.
What is included in the live-in vehicle ticket?
If you’d like to bring your live-in vehicle to Wilderness, you need to have purchased a live-in vehicle ticket which are available here. This gives your vehicle access to one live-in vehicle pitch within the specially dedicated field, depending on the ticket purchased.
You’ll only need one ticket per pitch, and every festival goer staying on the pitch must have a valid Wilderness weekend ticket.
Please note the live-in vehicle field isn’t open to day ticket holders.
Is it possible to reserve/allocate a specific space in the campsite?
