CASH OR CARDS
All our bars are cashless. Caterers and traders will be able to accept cash and card. Roaming Programme sellers only accept cash. You can withdraw cash via ATM machines in the festival arena and at the campsite. There is a charge for these.
Mr Trolley will be returning to the festival to help you ferry your gear from the car park to the camping area.
From 3 pm on Friday, you’ll also be able to hire a trolley overnight to wheel your little ones around in, allowing you to catch the late performances whilst they are either enjoying the ride or asleep, safe and sound, right by your side. In addition to a trolley, you can hire a wagon conversion – a trolley with cushions and a canopy with sides that go up or down.
Choose between a trolley or a wagon, in 4 colours, pay for the hire plus the deposit and off you go. Pre-booking is now open here.
We have 6 camping areas: General, Family, Boutique, Accessible, Campervan and Quiet. More information on the facilities available in each area can be found here.
