There will be a separate area for campervans- please note NO CARAVANS! An additional tent or awning is fine as long as it all fits into a 7m x 7m plot. Please be aware that hook ups (water/electricity) will not be provided. You need a Weekend Ticket for you to access the Festival and Campervan pass to camp in the Campervan field. Both of these must have been purchased in advance.

JOIN OUR BEAUTIFUL COMMUNITY IN THE NEW LOVE YOUR TENT FIELD, ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL 2014

After the amazing success of our RESPECT campfield at the Isle of Wight Festival since we launched two years ago we have listened to your feedback and suggestions and ideas, and are offering a new field with the same unique vibe but with some welcome extras.
We promise to give you a dedicated beautiful field which will have hot showers, posh flushing loos, an ethical café, free phone charging and a community of like-minded people.
All you have to do is sign up to our terms and conditions in which you agree to respect your neighbours, recycle your rubbish and take your tent and camping equipment home with you.
Our limited run of early bird ticket priced at Â£79 per person will end at midnight on Wednesday 19th March and will rise to Â£85 per person so visit the booking page and grab your tickets now and make sure you tell all of your friends.
For those people who camped in RESPECT last year and want the same this year, worry not. We are still running RESPECT with the same relaxed vibe, but if you wanted to upgrade for all of the extras then the new Love Your Tent field is for you.
Looking forward to seeing you all for a great festival.
For all Disabled Access tickets please contact Ticketmaster on 0800 988 4440. You can't purchase Disabled Access tickets online.
Tickets during the general on sale with be available to purchase with the Deposit Ticket Plan.
Each disabled customer attending must book a disabled access ticket. If they require a carer to accompany them this ticket must be booked at the same time. Disabled customers should not book standard tickets and turn up on spec expecting to have access to the disabled facilities they will not be accommodated.
Disabled customers are welcome at the Isle of Wight Festival but space on the platform and in the car park and campsite is limited and as it is a greenfield site there are many sections of the site that are hard to negotiate, meaning that sometimes access across the site is not that easy especially in bad weather conditions. Please bear these in mind when booking for the event. Stewards however, will be around to assist.
PLEASE do not attempt to book onto the platform if you don't need to, you are taking up valuable space that would allow someone else to attend the festival, who, without platform access, could not. When booking you will be asked for proof of disability, this is in order for us to ensure that the platform is not abused by those who do not need to be there.
Charging points for electric wheelchairs are available upon request , please ask Campsite staff or stewards.
Accessible toilets will be positioned at various places around the Festival including the Campsite and we aim to protect them from general public use.
There is a shuttle bus between the special needs camping area and the Arena.
Stewards will be on hand to help with any issues that may arise during the weekend.
CAMPSITE WILL OPEN ON THURSDAY 12TH JUNE AT 12 NOON AND STAY OPEN UNTIL 12 NOON ON MONDAY 16TH JUNE
Cooking will be permitted on camping gas stoves and disposable BBQs ONLY in designated areas. These must be used sensibly and in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Cooking on gas where installed in a campervan parked within the official campervan area is also permitted. Cooking by all other means including open fires, BBQs (other than disposable) and any other kind of gas appliance is strictly prohibited and all such items will be confiscated. Cooking in tents is banned.
There are single sex and communal showers- so you might want to bring swim wear to preserve your modesty!
FIRES IN THE CAMPSITE
Please do not light fires in the Campsite, it is strictly prohibited.
WELFARE & LOST PROPERTY SERVICES

FESTIVAL CRIME PREVENTION ADVICE
The Festival and the Hampshire Constabulary are working together to keep crime levels down on the site during the weekend. A small minority of people attending the Festival see it as an opportunity to commit crime, mainly stealing from tents. You can help yourselves by following the below advice:
ONLY BRING WITH YOU WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD TO LOSE - Remember, there's no way you can make a tent 100% secure so only bring what you absolutely need. Don't be tempted to leave valuables in your vehicle either. Don't challenge people looking through tents - report them to Festival staff or the Police immediately.
CAMP NEAR FRIENDS - There's safety in numbers. Say â€˜helloâ€˜ to your neighbours to build a community feeling and provide greater security around your tent.
MARK YOUR PROPERTY - Label your belongings, including your tent, with your postcode. Thieves are after unidentifiable property, so make sure the markings are obvious and indelible. Before you come to the Festival register your property such as mobile phones and cameras for free at www.immobilise.com and help the Police to return stolen items to their rightful owner.
PROTECT YOUR MOBILE PHONE - Do this now: on your mobile phone key in *#06# and your unique International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number will be displayed. Make a note of this number so that if you lose your phone or if it is stolen you can contact your service provider to have the phone immobilised. Whilst on site keep it in a buttoned/zipped pocket, secure bag or use a lanyard to keep it secured to your clothing.
KEEP CASH AND POSSESSIONS ON YOU - But don't keep all your money, bank cards and valuables together - spread them around in different pockets. Before going to sleep, place them in a plastic bag and hide it in your sleeping bag with you. There will be lockers available on site for rental - please use them!
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BRING ILLEGAL DRUGS INTO THE FESTIVAL - Searches will be carried out. If you take prescribed medication keep it with you at all times. These types of drugs are often sought by thieves. The Hampshire Constabulary will be conducting a structured drug disruption operation again at this year's event. They will utilise passive drugs detection dogs during the course of the weekend covering points of entry to the site. Amnesty bins will be provided in advance of these check points to give people the opportunity to surrender illegal substances.
CRIME REPORTING - If you are a victim of crime there will be Police Officers and Festival staff on site to whom you can report the incident. Alternatively, call the Hampshire Constabulary on: 101 or 999 in an emergency
