It’s a festival field, you will not be given a size of a pitch, just pick a spot and pitch up. Please be conscious of how much room you take up and please leave access roads clear and respect taped off areas. 

Can I bring my own drink into the arena?

Weekend ticket holders: We are allowing two cans per person inside the main arena. Each person has to carry their own drinks. We do however have a fantastic range of bars on-site at reasonable prices.
