Each campsite has its own wristband for safety purposes, so if you want to meet up with friends you can find them in the main arena where all the fun is anyway.

If camping's not your thing that's absolutely fine. Simply book an Weekend Non-Camping ticket and use your festival wristband to come and go from the festival within our gate opening times. You can also see our list of Local Hotels for suggestions on where to stay.

Our General, Quiet, Accessibility, Grove and Family Campsites are the ones where you can bring your own tent and camp. There are no designated pitches, you just pick a spot and set up. While we do not have a restriction on tent size, to make sure everyone has a fair amount of space we do not allow trailer tents or gazebos.

Our official ticket vendors are Ticketmaster and Big Green Coach. Please note when you book a ticket through them, you should contact them directly with any queries.

No, to stay in either our Boutique or Meadow campsites you must book Boutique or Meadow Accommodation on top of your general admission festival ticket. If you want to bring your own tent you can choose to stay in Camping, Family Camping or Quiet Camping. For any other questions on Boutique Camping please see our full Boutique Info Page.
