How to camp, what to bring, what you need and what you don’t need. Can you bring your dog? No, you can’t. Can you build a huge fire and dance around it naked? Fire bad, naked fine.

Thursday Camping Access 2024

Due to popular demand we have released a limited number of Thursday early camping access tickets, so you can pitch your tent or park up your motorhome without the Friday morning rush!

There will be food vendors so you can ease into a relaxing nights camping before the festival site opens on Friday at midday. You can arrive from 5pm on Thursday 30th May 2024.

If you are choosing to set up camp on Thursday we ask that vehicles don’t leave until Saturday at the earliest due to traffic flow into / out of the car parks.

How does camping work?

If you wish to camp, for any given night, and in any vehicle each occupant requires a weekend 3 day camping ticket. It is not possible to purchase a per-night camping ticket. Child and infant tickets are valid for weekend camping.

If you are bringing a camping vehicle e.g. motorhome / campervan / caravan / trailer tent you will also require a relevant vehicle pitch.


Weekend 3 day camping tickets include Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, and we ask that everyone vacates the camping areas by midday on Monday 3rd June 2024. You can set up camp from 10am on Friday, 31st May 2024.  Please note, this is a very popular arrival time and there can be long queues to access the site, we would recommend arriving later if possible. If you arrive before 10am, you will be turned away, and that wouldn’t be good 🙁


Campervan, motorhome and caravan awnings are accepted but must fit within the allocated pitch of  8x4m.  You must ensure you purchase the correct ticket type that includes an awning. Tents are NOT permitted in any of these areas for safety.


Campervan, motorhome, trailer tents and caravans, please bring plenty of your own water. The water and showers are supplied in the main tent campsite which is approximately a five-minute walk from the campervan area.


There are no electric hookups on site, and generators are not permitted.


Tents are restricted to the camping area only and are not allowed next to vehicles in the car park or campervan / motorhome or caravan areas. The camping field is near the car park so it is not far to walk with your tent/belongings. People do tend to favour the use of wheelbarrows / pull along trolleys to aid with the movement of camping gear.


If you wish to sleep in your car, each occupant must have a valid weekend camping ticket,  and motorhome/campervan pitch. It is not possible to purchase camping tickets on a per-night basis. Tents are not permitted on or next to cars, or in any vehicle areas. Roof tents are permitted with a live in vehicle pitch only.


Trailer tents are treated the same as caravans and will require a caravan pitch ticket per trailer tent as well as weekend camping tickets per person sleeping overnight in the trailer tents. Caravans and trailer tents cannot go into the motorhome / campervan fields.

What is the security situation?

There will be a vigilant security team operating within the festival, searching bags, checking vehicles and monitoring the site with CCTV. There is zero tolerance for antisocial behaviour and the use of any illegal substances.

If you see or hear anything, please let the nearest security person know about it. No glass is allowed on site, anywhere and will be confiscated if found.

Knives, including Swiss Army type knives are not allowed in the festival site.  A robust fencing and security entrance system will be in operation.

What time does the festival open?

Everyone who is camping at the festival for the weekend three day camping tickets 10am on Friday 31st May 2024 to park and pitch tents. This is an extremely popular time for people to arrive and can result in long queues. We would advise arriving later if possible so you have the best possible experience. If you have three day weekend non-camping tickets, or Friday day tickets you can arrive from midday on Friday 31st May 2024, again we would advise arriving later if possible so you have the best possible experience.

All day ticket holders can arrive and collect their tickets from the box office from midday on Friday,  9am Saturday and Sunday up until 10pm each evening.

The main festival arena opens at midday Friday 31st May 2024 and runs through to 23:00. Gates open again at 10:00 on Saturday and close at 02:00. On Sunday gates open at 10:00 and close at 23:00.

We ask all weekend campers to vacate the campgrounds by midday on Monday taking all of your belongings with you, please do not just leave your tents or any other items. Please ensure all rubbish is taken to the correct refuse points (all recycling goes into general rubbish to be sorted by our partners) and leave Scorrier House as tidy as you found it 🌱

What tickets do I need to stay overnight?

To stay on-site overnight on any given night, weekend camping tickets must be purchased for each person staying.

Any vehicle (motorhome / campervan) being slept in overnight will also need a valid campervan or motorhome pitch (depending on the size of vehicle), which must have been purchased on this website. Roof tents are permitted with a valid live in vehicle pitch. Caravans and trailer tents are permitted and must have a caravan pitch purchased.

There are no tents allowed within the motorhome /campervan fields.

All occupants of the vehicle must also have weekend camping tickets. Camping tickets are for the whole weekend. Camping tickets are not available on a per night basis for day ticket holders.

If you wish to purchase weekend camping tickets and have already purchased weekend tickets, you can simply purchase the camping upgrade ticket from our ticket page here. You can also upgrade your weekend tickets at the box office, but they are cheaper to buy in advance from our website.
