Cash Points

Cash points will be available around the festival. Please check a map on site for their locations.

Cash machines will charge a small fee onsite.

Water Points

There are tested drinking water points throughout the Arena which are free to use. If you notice any issue with our water points, let a member of staff know so that they can get it fixed.

Meeting And Information Points

We don’t have any official meeting points onsite, so when you do arrive arrange some key meeting points for if you happen to get lost. Try to choose locations that will not get too crowded and are easily located – day or night.

There is an Information Tent located in The Village which can act as an excellent location and provide help locating any other areas.

Food and Drink

There are several bars in the Arena, some of which operate on a cash-only basis.

Only food for personal consumption may be brought into the Arena.

We only allow sealed soft drinks under 500ml, as well as empty reusable plastic and metal bottles of any size into the Arena.

Please refill your empty bottles at the water points inside the Arena for free.
