Camping & Camping Plus

The Isle of Wight Festival Weekend ticket allows you to camp all weekend in our 180 acre campsite that runs alongside the River Medina. When you arrive, follow the arches through the campsite, pick a field and pitch your tent. All the fields are named after colours so it’s easy to find your way back to your tent at the end of the night.

The Campsite opens at 10am on Thursday 11th June 2020 and closes at 2pm on Monday 15th June 2020. Opening times are subject to health and safety inspections and we work hard to open gates on time, but please bear with us if there are any delays. The Car Park gates open from 0600 on Thursday 11th June.

There will be Stewards and Security to help you if you have any questions. Alternatively, drop in to see our Welfare team on the Campsite if you need them.

There are loos, drinking water and showers in the Campsite. There are also a number of food outlets and bars to enjoy before you head in for the main entertainment.

Love Your Tent are hugely proud to announce that we are back at the Isle of Wight Festival 2020 for our seventh fabulous year!

Love Your Tent is the original, sustainable and environmentally driven festival camping initiative, offering a private field containing lovely hot showers, clean toilets, our private café serving delicious cooked meals, hot drinks and snacks, the Love Your Tent pamper parlour, our exclusive secret stage and a safe and secure experience throughout the festival.

When you book with us we give you a reserved pitch for your tent in the Love Your Tent field and in order to stay with us, you commit to take you tent and all of your belongings home with you after the festival by agreeing to the Love Your Tent terms and conditions. This means that you really must take it home and not pack it up and dump it outside!

As in previous years, we are supporting Shelterbox by pledging £1 per camper to this great organisation, who provide shelter to people in the midst of war and famine where few others can.

What you will need to stay with us:

  1. One Isle of Wight Festival Weekend Camping Ticket for each person staying with us.
  2. One Love Your Tent Standard or Earlybird Ticket for each person staying with us. Each ticket must have the individual camper’s name on it.
  3. One refundable Tent Deposit Ticket of £30 for each tent that your party brings along. This will be returned once you have taken both your tent and belongings away with you after the festival.

If you have questions, or are unsure of how to book, you can email us at any time on

We look forward to welcoming you soon!


Registration for Family Camping is currently closed. More spaces will be made available when tickets go back on sale.

There is a Family Camping field, which provides a secure area where families with young children can enjoy a quieter and more relaxed experience. It has its own loos and designated security.

You need to book in advance to stay in the Family field – you can’t just turn up. Sign up is free and on a strictly limited first come first served basis.

Please note that the Family fields are for tents only and not for Campervans or any type of vehicles.

If you haven't bought yet, then don't worry, we're not going to fill up the field, we'll be holding spaces to release when tickets go back on sale.

NB: All Isle of Wight Festival tickets include camping, you can register for Family Camping with Weekend Adult or Islander Rate tickets.

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 for each member of your party to access the Festival as well as a Campervan pass to park your vehicle in this area, this is now an add-on for your main weekend ticket. Both of these must have been purchased in advance.


Welcome back to the unique campsite that is Respect camping at the Isle of Wight Festival, returning for its spectacular 8th year!!

You can gain access to this beautiful field with its unique vibe by signing up here. You’ll be taken to our ticketing page, where you'll be able to reserve space and asked to agree to our voluntary terms and conditions in which you promise to abide by the code of conduct and take your tent and all your belongings away with you after the festival. It's been a spectacular few years with nothing at all left behind in the campsite by Monday lunchtime, so please come and join us!

Respect is so popular at the festival, and therefore our space is so limited, so please read the following instructions carefully before you book.

  • Sign up is free, and is on a strictly limited first come first served basis - However, this year we can only accept bookings of up to a maximum of 10 tickets per booking.
  • Everyone coming along needs to have a separate entry ticket in their name, and we can only accept a maximum of three tents per booking.
  • Please only bring tents along for the size of your party - no larger than necessary tents as space is very limited again. And no gazebos for the same reason - you will be asked to take them down this year if you bring them along as we need to try and get everyone in.
  • You'll need to show photo ID to get into Respect once at the festival.
  • Space goes very quickly so get your festval tickets and reserve respect soon.

To be fair to everyone, and to avoid bookings where a reservation is made early and then all the names are changed just before the event goes live, you will be able to change names on the individual entry tickets, but there will be an admin fee of £15 (plus fees) charged for changing each ticket over. We can't accept any name changes after the 13th May 2019, so if one of your party drops out later than this, we won’t be able to change over that name to another one.

Good luck and hope to see you there.

You need to have Isle of Wight Festival Weekend tickets for every one in the party coming along before booking space in Respect.
