[Last updated 6th July 2017]

When can we get into the festival?

The site opens to the public at 12 noon on the Friday until midnight. (All day ticket holders must be off site by midnight). On Saturday and Sunday the gates open from 9am until midnight. The site must be cleared by 12 noon on Monday.


What is this year’s theme?

This year our theme is Air – which represents the vibe of our wellbeing – like a gentle breeze that refreshes and enhances your experience.


Can I bring my dog?

Yes but you need to buy a dog ticket. Dogs must be on the lead, and you at the other end of the lead as all times. You must clear up after your dog so bring dog poo bags.


Can I have a campervan caravan?

Yes but you must buy a live-in vehicle pass and you will be required to put the caravan in the live-in vehicle area. You will be directed where to park and must use common sense to ensure there is clear accessway to allow for emergency vehicles.


Can I buy a day ticket?

Yes but only on the day of the festival. Day ticket prices are on the website and are subject to availability.


Can I camp?

If you buy a weekend ticket you are allowed to camp in the designated area. Day tickets do not allow you to camp.


Can my friends camp near to me in my live-in vehicle?

For safety reasons we have to separate tents and vehicles, so usually you will not be able to camp in the live-in vehicle area.


Is there disabled access?

The pathways are grass or woodchip. We do have a disabled access toilet on the main festival site.


I want to trade at Festival 8.

Please contact f8.stalls at


Can I bring alcohol onto the site?

The terms of the licence for the site means you cannot bring your own alcohol into the festival site. You can have it your own in your own tent but NO GLASS is allowed on site. We have stewards checking as you leave the campsite and enter the festival site.
