Both cash and card/contactless payments are accepted at the bar and the ticket booth. Some of the 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. With the exception of water in unopened plastic containers of up to 500ml, and baby food where not in glass containers.

All bags will be searched

Security is important so don’t take it personally! Please try to keep any bags bought into the event as small as possible.

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 in places.

No dogs or pets on site

We’re sorry but your furry friends have to stay at home – the only dogs allowed are guide dogs.
