We know that camping isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but that shouldn’t stop you from coming and enjoying the Festival. Why not take advantage of our wonderful Island and stay in a local hotel or holiday cottage? Our friends at Wight Locations have some beautiful properties to rent and they will look after your every need. Alternatively you could stay in one of the many hotels the Island has to offer.

Campervan Info

There is a separate area for campervans in the Campsite - please note NO CARAVANS are allowed! 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 to buy a Camping Ticket for each member of your party to access the Festival as well as a Campervan pass to park your vehicle in this area. Both of these must have been purchased in advance.

If you are arriving by car you can park in one of our onsite car parks. Whether you are travelling to us from one of the ferry terminals or from anywhere on the Island you will be directed to the appropriate car park.

You can pay for parking on the day but we advise you pay for it in advance when booking your Festival ticket.
