Possibly the last update before the Festival!

Hello campers!

A few last things to know/remember:


  • the Festival opens at 2pm Friday (please don’t arrive before then), and the Welcome Meet is at 7pm at the stage (please come if you can). We’d recommend not arriving after dark, as pitching your tent will be tricky. If you need to arrive Saturday, please wait until 9am so our reception staff can stagger from their tents in search of coffee first
  • there has been a burst water main on the approach to the Festival entrance. Please assume you’ll be using the main entrance, if it is closed, we’ll direct you to the alternative entrance
  • follow the directions of the parking stewards and park space-efficiently please
  • if you want to camp with friends, please arrive together, camping will be busy
  • please make sure you check in at the Festival reception and get a wristband
  • the Festival is at Bushy Wood Activity Centre, Main Road, Hailsham, BN27 3LZ
