First things first, if you are coming, you need to have booked in advance, and bring your tickets with you. There will be no tickets for sale at the gate so if you turn up without booking you will be turned away.
The car park will open at 11am on Friday 18th May so that campers can arrive and get set up early. Wristband exchange will open at 12. The gates into the festival will open at 2pm. Please do not arrive any earlier than 10am as we can’t let you in and you will be asked to move on, so could start your festival experience by driving round in circles while you wait!
Campers are asked to vacate the site by 9pm Sunday 20th or 11am Monday 21st.
Day ticket holders are allowed to stay at the festival from 8am until 11pm, and the car park will open at 8am for day ticket holders on Saturday and Sunday.
Nobody is permitted to sleep in the day ticket car park, in a tent, car, campervan or caravan.
Please try to keep the number of vehicles you bring to the festival to a minimum and help to reduce the impact of the festival on the environment and local communities.

Campsites open at 11 am on Friday, and the main site opens at 2pm. Wristband exchange also opens at 12, so head there early to avoid queuing!
