You’ll be greeted by our lovely stewards who’ll check your tickets and show you where you need to go. Please have your parking/van pass displayed on your dashboard when you get here. Buy in advance to ensure you sail smoothly through, if not you can buy on site but it could take you longer to get in and it’s more expensive. Please keep your parking pass safe as we can’t replace lost or damaged passes.
Tent camping’s included in the price of your ticket, so you can camp for the date/s on your ticket (not the night before). If you know you’ll want to come early, why not book a holiday ticket so you can camp in Camp Rushmore from Monday.
Mr Trolley will be on hand by the festival entrance is you’d like to hire a trolley to help transport you tent, clothes, bedding or children.
Just a little reminder… our Box Office and Wristband Exchange teams turn in at 10.30pm so please arrive before then, or we won’t be able to let you in.
There’s plenty of space for car parking and it’s only a 5-10 minute walk to the festival entrance from the car parks. We wouldn’t be doing our best for the planet if we didn’t at least ask you to minimise the number of cars you bring, or better still, to consider lift-sharing.
There are allocated parking areas for those camping in tents (for your safety we can’t allow cars to be driven into the campsite or parked next to tents).
You’ll need either a day or multi-day parking pass for each vehicle to access the car parks (see below for live-in vehicles).
Motorbikes and bicycles don’t need a parking pass. Motorbikes are to be left in our car parks, you can use the Larmer Lock-up to store your bicyle.
Our definition of a Van is any vehicle adapted for sleeping in (including caravans, campervans, trailer tents and any other live-in vehicle you intend to sleep in, but excluding cars).
If you’re planning to stay in a live-in vehicle at the festival you’ll need to buy either a day or multi-day van pass. Buy this in advance (you can order it at the same time as your tickets) as there’s limited space available and we can’t guarantee access on arrival without it.
Cars pulling caravans/trailer tents can be parked alongside them in the Van Field. You only need to buy the right van pass as this will cover parking for your car too.
If you’re travelling by motorbike, you won’t need a parking pass.
Just coming for the day?
Buy a day parking pass or day van pass and you’ll be directed to the Day Camping/Parking Field.
