Live-In Vehicle Info and Ts & Cs

Please see our Live-in Vehicle Campsite information and guidelines below. If you are booking a Live-in Vehicle Pass please make sure you have read the following terms and conditions, to ensure all customers are adhering to our Live-In Vehicle Campsite rules and regulations.

Passes & Tickets

  • A Live-In Vehicle Pass gives you access to one pitch measuring approximately 6m by 7m within the Live-In Vehicle field. If your vehicle is larger than this, you’ll need to buy an additional pass until you have to cover the area required to accommodate your vehicle.
  • Only one Live-In Vehicle Pass is needed per pitch, however, every occupant staying on the Pitch (whether in a vehicle or a tent) must be in possession of a valid weekend general camping ticket for Wilderness. If you don’t have both, you cannot stay in this campsite.
  • Live-In Vehicle Passes (1 per 6x7m pitch) are only valid with a General Camping Festival Ticket (1 per person).
  • Live-In Vehicle Passes must be purchased in advance. Please purchase them at the same time as your festival ticket, and be aware this is a popular pass and they will sell out early. You will not be able to stay in this campsite if Live-In Vehicle Passes sell out and you’ve only booked General Camping Tickets.
  • It is contrary to our licence to allow anyone to sleep in our car parks, regardless of whether it’s in a vehicle or tent. So, if you’re bringing a live-in vehicle and plan on staying in it, please book your Live-In Vehicle Pass and festival tickets. Security patrols will monitor this.

Suitable & Permitted Vehicles

  • Only one live-in vehicle will be admitted per Live-In Vehicle Pass. Cars, people carriers and vans are only permitted to stay on your pitch if they were used to tow a caravan and if both vehicles fit within the pitch. If we require your towing vehicle to be moved to a separate car park, we will provide you with a car park pass to do this.
  • Live-In Vehicle pitches must be filled with at least one live-in vehicle. Pitches may not be used by customers camping in tents only.
  • Camping vehicles will only be admitted to the Live-In Vehicle Campsite if they are one of the following: a campervan; a motor home; a caravan; a trailer tent; a purpose-built vehicle with camping facilities within; this excludes a van with a mattress or bunk bed facility only or any other vehicle deemed to be inappropriate by the Wilderness Team. The camping vehicle must fit within the pitch. Cars, people carriers and vans ARE NOT PERMITTED to be slept in.
  • Unsuitable vehicles with Live-In Vehicle passes – including unconverted vans – will not be allowed entry and will be sent to one of the festival car parks.

If you have not heard from us within a week, please follow up on your original message. We will then contact you to inform you whether or not it is suitable. In advance of the festival, our decision as to the suitability of your vehicle is final. At the festival, if your vehicle has not been previously agreed upon and is found to be unsuitable by the Live-In Vehicle Campsite Manager or Campsite Manager, their decision is final.
  • You will be permitted to erect: a gazebo or purpose-built, fitted awning; AND one tent, provided that these fit within your pitch alongside your camping vehicle. If you are asked by a member of staff to remove any vehicles, tents, awnings or gazebos, you will do so immediately. Customers are only permitted to sleep in their live-in vehicle/caravan or tent.
  • We can accommodate a limited number of tour buses by prior agreement only. These will only be allowed in the fields if they have living accommodation with fitted sleeping facilities and either fitted cooking or washing facilities.

  • Pitches are pre-set, and vehicles are parked as they arrive by our traffic marshalls, to ensure everyone is parked as quickly and safely as possible on arrival. We, therefore, cannot allow you to pick which area of the campsite you will stay in. And if you would like to stay next to someone, you will need to arrive together, as we cannot hold spaces.
  • It is possible to have your live-in vehicle delivered to the Live-In Vehicle campsite by someone else, however, to ensure there are no issues with it being dropped off please ensure:
    • Before the vehicle arrives it has its valid Live-In Vehicle Pass(es) – depending on size, 1 pass per 6x7m pitch – filled out and displayed.
    • The vehicle is not dropped off before campsites open, at noon, Thursday of the festival.
  • There is no re-entry for Live-In Vehicles that leave the festival during the event.
  • All vehicles and belongings must vacate the Live-In Vehicle Campsite by midday on the Monday after the festival. Any items or vehicles left on the Campervan site will be removed and we reserve the right to charge any costs incurred to the customer. N.B. These terms will apply should your vehicle break down prior to the event. If so, customers will be asked to camp in one of our other standard campsites and they will need a tent to do so. No vehicles are permitted in any other campsite.
