Camping & Accommodation


General Camping Information

General camping is included in your ticket to the festival. An upgrade to electrical hookups can be purchased when buying your ticket.

Our campsites have room for tents, caravans and motorhomes and are located adjacent to our main Festival arena. All camping fields are just a few minutes walk from the shops and amenities of Wickham village. The campsites will be open from 9am on Wednesday.

Please follow signs when approaching the festival for the different types of camping. We will post any relevant information on our social channels and email you on the lead up to the event.

There will be first-class facilities including decent toilets, ‘Posh Wash’ showers and washing facilities on all camping fields (including those for caravans and motorhomes).
