Anyone under the age of 18 found with alcohol will have it taken away, in compliance with the law.

We run a strict Challenge 25 policy so its really important that you remember to bring a valid form of ID in order to receive your 18 + wristband. We reserve the right to deny access to anyone who cannot produce a valid form of ID.


Can I bring in my own food?

We have got some excellent food stalls on site serving all day and evening but yes you are more than welcome to bring your own picnics.  Please do not bring in any glass or sharp cutlery (bags and picnics will be checked on arrival by our friendly staff). We will have bins around but please take as much rubbish away with you as possible. Please think about not bringing disposable plastics where possible. We all want to try and do our bit to cut down on our plastic consumption.

You can also bring in rugs and chairs to sit on but gazebos, windbreaks and other structures are not permitted.


Water will be freely available near the entrance but please bring your own receptacles.

Can I enter & exit the festival during the day?

Yes. Keep your wristband on and you can pop in and out of the festival during the day up to 8pm on Saturday and all day on Sunday. Why not explore our wildlife reserve at Cambourne.

The festival is taking place on a grass field and such adverse conditions could cause the ground conditions to deteriorate. Be prepared to bring wellies and waterproofs. However if it is anything like the summer of 2018, you will need to pack sunblock and bring hats.

If strong winds occur, or other forms of weather we believe could endanger the audience then we reserve the right to close the festival or areas of the festival.
