Arriving to Site

As you approach the venue you will see temporary yellow signs that will direct you to your specific gate. Please ensure you have your pass in your window and watch/listen to the marshals instructions.

What time can I arrive?
Camping arrivals can check-in between 8am and 9pm Friday. The gate will reopen at 8am Saturday morning.

What if I arrive after the gate has closed?
Late arrivals will be asked to return in the morning.  We do not have an overnight holding area.

What if we arrive in separate vehicles at different times?
This is fine. The first member of the party to arrive must have the Vehicle Pass with them to be allocated a pitch. They will be issued with the relevant number of camper wristbands and are then required to meet the rest of the party back at the Campers Entrance to pass on the wristbands and escort them to the pitch.

Will I be given an allocated pitch? / I want to camp next to my friends?
Pitches are allocated when you arrive. If you would like to camp with friends, please ensure you have booked the same area and arrive at the Campers Entrance together.
