Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted on the festival site or on the campsite (except for registered guide and assistance dogs). This is to protect the livestock which usually graze the land from the risk of potentially fatal bacterial infections. We are happy to recommend local kennels if that is an option for you. Please do ask by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
CAN I HAVE A CAMPFIRE?
Campfires are not permitted on the campsites but there are fire bowls in the arena at night for all to enjoy. If we have had a particularly dry summer this may not be possible. We will take advice from the Fire Officer nearer the time.
CAN I BRING A BARBECUE?
Barbecues are allowed as long as they are 60cm off the ground as recommended by Our Fire Officer . Disposable barbecues are not permitted. Please never leave burning coals unattended and make sure you dispose of them responsibly. If we have had a particularly dry summer, barbecues may be restricted. We will take advice from the Fire Officer nearer the time.
WHEN CAN I ARRIVE TO CAMP?
The campsite opens on Thursday 15th August 2024 at 2pm. Please do not arrive before then as you will not be allowed on to the site.
DO YOU HAVE SHOWERS AND TOILETS ON THE CAMPSITE?
Yes! We have free-to-use showers and ample toilet facilities.
IS THERE AN ELECTRIC HOOK-UP AVAILABLE?
This is a temporary campsite, so there is no electric hook-up.
CAN I CAMP NEXT TO MY CAR?
There is an area on the campsite where you can camp next to your car. However, once parked up there is no vehicle movement in the designated area until Monday morning for Health and Safety reasons. If you wish to leave the campsite during the weekend you will not be allowed to drive back onto the campsite and will be asked to park up in the car park close by.
CAN I LEAVE THE SITE DURING THE FESTIVAL?
Yes, of course! We like to encourage people to explore the local area. With your weekend wristband, you are able to come and go to your heart’s content.
However, it is important to note that if you are camping in the festival campsite over the weekend, you will need to park your vehicle in the main public car park adjacent to the campsite in order to nip in and out as there is no movement of vehicles on the camping field once the festival is underway. If you do leave your camping pitch during the weekend you will not be allowed to drive back onto the campsite and will be asked to park up in the car park close by.
CAN I BRING FOOD AND DRINK ON TO THE SITE?
You may bring food and drink (including alcohol) into the campsites but please do not bring food or drink (apart from bottled water and perhaps fruit/something to snack on) into the main festival Arena. Our aim is to support local food and drink businesses and we have some lovely outlets. We continue to keep our stall concession prices low to encourage a variety of food and drink at reasonable prices.
CAN I STAY FOREVER?
Afraid not, but please do come back next year! Super Duper Early Bird Tickets will be available to purchase onsite from the Box Office on the afternoon of Sunday 18th August 2024.
The campsite closes at midday on Monday 19th August 2024 and once the site is cleared, it will be returned to the cattle.
Please respect others’ decisions regarding wearing a mask and distancing. It’s important to remember that some people are more vulnerable and will need to access the event in the way most comfortable for them. Hand-washing stations and hand sanitiser will be available around the site.
Refunds will only be made to ticket holders if FolkEast has to announce the cancellation of the 2024 festival if it becomes unviable to proceed in the event of Government local and/or national restrictions.
