A Weekend ticket allows you to camp at the Festival all weekend. The gates open at 12 noon on Thursday 8 June when the fun begins. There are showers, loos, bars and food concessions throughout the Campsite. A Camping ticket gives you unlimited re-entry to the Festival throughout the weekend. Once the weekend is over, you will need to leave the Campsite by 2pm on Monday 12 June.
Day tickets allow you access to the festival on the designated day ONLY. Your day ticket does NOT entitle you to camp. You will be allowed unlimited entry & re-entry on the day of your ticket.
You can buy a Student ticket if you hold a valid NUS or other official card (as at 8 June 2017). You will be required to produce your card on arrival at the Festival box office. A Student ticket allows you to camp if you want to. Please note if you are a Student between 16-17 (as at 8 June 2017) we suggest you buy a Teen ticket because this is cheaper.

We are again adopting a paper ticket to wristband exchange system this year.
Your tickets will be not be dispatched until a few weeks prior to the Festival. You must bring your ticket to the festival where it will be scanned at one of the entrance gates. The ticket stub will be removed and exchanged for a wristband. Your counterpart of the ticket will be returned, and you are required to keep this on you at all times during the event.
We know that camping isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but that shouldn’t stop you from coming and enjoying the Festival. Why not take advantage of our wonderful Island and stay in a local hotel or holiday cottage? Our friends at Wight Locations have some beautiful properties to rent and they will look after your every need. Alternatively you could stay in one of the many hotels the Island has to offer.
Where to Stay
On-Site Campervan Info
There is a separate area for campervans in the Campsite - please note NO CARAVANS are allowed! An additional tent or awning is fine as long as it all fits into a 7m x 7m plot.
You need to buy a Weekend Ticket (Adult, Student, Teen) for each member of your party to access the Festival as well as a Campervan pass to park your vehicle in this area. Both of these must have been purchased in advance.
If you are arriving by car you can park in one of our onsite car parks. Whether you are travelling to us from one of the ferry terminals or from anywhere on the Island you will be directed to the appropriate car park.
You can pay for parking on the day but we advise you pay for it in advance when booking your Festival ticket.
