LIVE-IN VEHICLES

Bring along your home from home! Our live-in vehicle field has only gotten more popular as the British staycation is increasingly in demand. All campervans, caravans, converted vehicles or trailer tents require a live-in vehicle pass. Unsuitable vehicles, such as unconverted vans & cars will not be allowed entry to the live-in vehicle site. Only cars towing caravans will be permitted entry. These vehicles will be redirected to the festival carpark where sleeping in vehicles is prohibited as it is contrary to our license. Suitable vehicles are those that have living accommodation with fitted sleeping facilities and either fitted cooking or washing facilities.

One ticket is required per vehicle, not per person and must be used in conjunction with a valid weekend ticket. With your live-in vehicle ticket, you are allocated a pitch on a first come first served basis, these pitches are 7m x 5m maximum. All vehicles and cars must fit within this area. If your live-in vehicle is larger than 7m x 5m, you must purchase two live in vehicle passes. If you’re wanting to pitch near friends, we’d recommend arriving in convoy as we cannot save pitches next to each other.

The live-in vehicle field is located adjacent to the general campsites and is roughly 10-15 mins walk from the arena depending on ground conditions and mobility.

The live-in vehicle field has toilets, a water point and a chemical disposal point.
