Our Main Stage and Orchard Stage have live music from 3pm Friday and 2pm Saturday. The headline act will be the final act on The Main Stage.
Schedules for the stages will be made available closer to the event date.
Silent Disco will run all day in the Dance Barn until the DJ sets start after the headliners finish each night.
Check out our lineup for more information.
Entertainment for everyone
Our kid’s tent will feature tonnes of fun activities, including face painting, arts and crafts, and circus skills. And our inflatables are a firm favourite!
On Saturday night, the Orchard Stage will play host to our Rock the Barn Comedy Club.
Check out our ‘Whats On‘ page for more information.
Re-admission only by showing wristband.
Please plan accordingly; don’t take off your wristband if you plan to return to the festival!
Cash and card accepted
Both cash and card/contactless payments are accepted at the bar and the ticket booth. Some food traders and concessions will also accept card payments, although cash may be required.
There is no cash point on site.
No food or drink in the arena
You can bring food and drink into the campsite but not into the actual festival arena, except for water in unopened plastic containers of up to 500ml and baby food not in glass containers.
We’re on a real working farm
Please respect the farm owner and keep out of areas that are out of bounds. Please take care when moving around the site, as the ground can be uneven.
No dogs or pets on site
We’re sorry, but your furry friends must stay home – the only dogs allowed are guide dogs.
What to bring with you
Please watch our social channels – tickets won’t be available at the gate if we sell out. We recommend pre-booking.
In our fight against plastic, we won’t sell bottled water at the festival. Free drinking water is available throughout the site!
In case it rains or for a bit of shade!
Clothes for any eventuality
Hats, sunglasses, rainwear, something warm for the evening. Blankets will be on sale.
If you need medication, we recommend bringing a doctor’s note or prescription if it is not easily recognisable.
