CAMPERVANS / CARAVANS

Can I bring a campervan?
Yes. We ask that you ensure you actually have a campervan before purchasing a campervan pass, as they are limited and sell out early each year. Ordinary commercial vehicles of any type will not be permitted so please do not purchase a campervan pass for anything other than a purpose-built or adapted live-in vehicle. We would define this as having its own in-built kitchen facilities and toilet. Tents are not permitted in the campervan area.
Can I bring a trailer tent to the festival?
For health and safety reasons, trailer tents are not permitted at the festival.
Does everyone who wants to enter the campervan area also need to buy a campervan pass for themselves?
No, only one campervan pass is required per campervan. After that, anyone travelling with it or using it just needs a standard weekend ticket.
Can I pitch a tent beside my campervan?
Tents cannot be pitched in the campervan area for health and safety reasons.
Is there an electric hook up for my campervan?
There are no electric hook ups for campervans.
Can I bring a generator for my campervan?
No, generators are prohibited on the festival grounds.
Can I park a commercial style van (hi-ace, transit, etc.) in the campervan area if I have a campervan pass?
No, sorry. Only proper purpose-built or adapted live-in vehicles will be permitted.
Can I bring a caravan?
Yes, you can park a caravan in the campervan area. However, once positioned you will need to unhitch and park your car in one of the car parks. Please note that a campervan pass will need to be purchased for your caravan.
