We at Wilderness want to ensure our Wildlings get the chance to experience everything our festival has to offer, it is for this reason that we only offer full weekend tickets. As such, when it comes to booking we ask you to choose which campsite you want to call home for the weekend.
With 6 campsites across the park, there’s something for everyone, so get your friends, decide which one suits, and get booking.
Located alongside the swimming and boating lakes this campsite offers stunning views of the festival. Book, bring your tent, set up camp. Simple.
With baby changing facilities and a family welfare tent – if you’re bringing little ones this is the one for you.
For those of you who prefer to get some shut eye – as such we ask you do not bring portable sound systems or children under the age of 8.

Wilderness Festival welcomes deaf and disabled guests and is working harder than ever to make the show as accessible as possible for everyone.
We operate a 2 for 1 (free PA/carer ticket) policy for eligible guests. Only available for Teen and Adult Tickets.
We also have a dedicated Accessibility Campsite.
The accessible campsite is exclusively for deaf and disabled guests.
It is the closest to the arena with a central and a blue-badge parking area which is free of charge.
Approximately 50m from the Accessibility check-in point over a green-field site.
Benefitting from a hard road from its entrance making wheelchair access easier.
We also operate a 2 for 1 (free PA/carer ticket) policy for eligible guests. Only available for Teen and Adult Tickets.
Please do not book a ticket for your PA/carer as this will not be refunded if you are approved for a free ticket.
Book the required number of Accessible Festival Ticket(s) (minus PA/carer).
Then apply for your PA/carer ticket and submit the supporting documentation required using our Access Requirements Application Form.
The PA ticket is provided on the expectation that your PA is willing and able to assist you throughout your visit and would be available and able to help you in the event of an evacuation.

If you'd like to book 2 for 1 tickets but stay in another campsite you can do so by choosing your preferred campsite and booking here.

Your PA/carer Accessibility Wristband will be given to you at the check point when you arrive and grants access to the following facilities at the festival:
Wilderness is on a large green-field site with very few hard-standing paths. While there are some sheltered areas (marquees) it is mainly an open-air event.
Weather and ground conditions may be variable and in times of extreme weather, mobility on the site may become very difficult. We ask you to consider this before purchasing a ticket.
The route from the registered blue-badge parking area/pick-up/drop-off point to the Main Arena is approximately 500m over a gravel pathway and green-field site.
The Accessibility campsite is approximately 150m from the Accessible parking/pick-up/drop-off point over a green-field site.
Please note that strobe effects may be used at the event. There will be no specific announcements prior to the use of strobes and lasers.
We are proud to be working with Festival Spirit again for the third year; they are a superb charity providing the full festival experience to those who would not normally be able to enjoy one due to life-limiting illness or disability. Festival Spirit will have a marquee set up in the accessible camping area where they will be stationed for the entirety of the festival with their guests. If this is a charity that interests you, please do visit them for information.
While they will be happy to help you with any general accessibility questions while at Wilderness, we do ask that you contact our information point/security or production crew first with any questions or concerns.
Please direct any queries you may have regarding accessibility at Wilderness to email@example.com.
