Full details about how camping works at Elderflower Fields are below, but if you would like a bit more space, luxury or if you have a camper van, there are a few other options to look at too:
Live in Vehicles
If you own a camper van, caravan or motor home and would like to bring it to the festival, you must book a separate Live in Vehicle ticket at £90 per pitch.
There are two main family camping fields with plenty of space for groups to camp together and kids to run around. The campsites open at 12noon on Friday and last admission at wristband exchange will be at 9pm. This is a family festival so we kindly request that, especially in the evenings and through the night, noise is kept to a minimum in the campsites.
If you are arriving by car, you must leave it in the car park. Cars will not be allowed anywhere beyond the main car park. The closest you can camp to the car park is downhill about 100 meters, which would then be about a 200m walk into the main festival site. The furthest you could conceivably walk between the far corner of the car park and the farthest corner of the wild camping field is just over 1km (but it’s well worth it in our opinion!).
There is no trolly hire at Elderflower Fields so if you are new to festivals with kids we highly recommend thinking about how you’ll transport your camping kit if you aren’t a light packer.

TOILETS AND SHOWERS
There are toilets situated around the site and they will be marked on the festival map. Depending on where you pitch your tent, you may be a little way from the loos, but they should be no more than a five minute walk. The toilets are a mixture of portable loos and stand alone trailers with flushable loos. If you notice that toilets have run out of loo paper or are getting a bit dirty then please let a steward know.
As with previous years, there will also be hot showers freely available. The location of these will be marked on the festival map and it’s worth highlighting that they can get very busy, especially in the mornings. If you hate queuing, we suggest a sneaky mid-afternoon wash. Either that or just stay dirty for a few days :-)
There will also be hand wash stations and drinking water points at various locations around the site.
COOKING AND FIRES
You are welcome to to cook your own food on camp stoves or portable barbecues, but you must ensure they are raised off the grass. Please also make sure you’re well away from your tent and definitely not inside your tent or porch. Apart from the fire risk there is a real danger of carbon monoxide poisoning, so please be sensible.
Unfortunately, open camp fires are not permitted anywhere in the campsite. Candles and paper or Chinese lanterns are also not allowed. Instead, we will be running a communal camp fire where you can warm up, toast marshmallows and sing a few songs.
