Times

Doors will open at 12pm and the festival finishes at 10.30pm. Last entry is at 9.00pm. 

Entry and wristbands

Tickets and e-tickets will be exchanged for a wristband on arrival at the festival entrance. Entrance to the festival grounds for everyone, including under 13s, is only possible with a valid wristband. There will be no admission without a valid ticket nor will readmission be permitted with the same ticket. 

Photo ID can and may be requested at entry so please be prepared for this. We will accept a photo driving license, passport or PASS. Photocopies will be allowed in conjunction with a valid bank card bearing the holder’s name, but photocopies alone will not be accepted as proof of age. 

You may be searched at the entrance or at any time while you’re in the grounds. Please comply with this request as it will only be made to ensure your safety and/or that of others. Rights of admission are reserved by the festival. 

Once you have exchanged your ticket for a wristband you can come and go as you please. Please keep your wristband on at all times. Wristbands removed from the wrist or tampered with will be rendered invalid and cannot be replaced. 

Performances

When announced, the artists will be listed on our line-up page here in reverse order of appearance (headliners first and opening act last). The first acts will perform soon after the gates open. Main stage headliners are the last acts of the day and will be onstage at around 9pm. 

Full performance times will be on display throughout the festival site and will also appear in the festival programme. 

Please note that as this is a live music event the sound levels come with a risk of damage to hearing. Please bring ear defenders with you. 

Strobe lighting may be used without warning so please be mindful if you or anyone you are responsible for has a medical condition that can be aggravated by this. 

Finally, please be aware that artists and billed attractions may be subject to change.
