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 13th June 2019 and closes at 2pm on Monday 17th June 2019. 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 13 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.

The Love Your Tent glamping field is back at the Isle of Wight Festival for a sixth fabulous year, offering a little oasis of calm amongst the festival chaos.

We offer a campsite full of people who have signed up to be respectful of each other and the environment, leaving you free to enjoy the weekend in a safe, secure, relaxed and clean field.

The Love Your Tent field is pre-book only so make sure you grab yours early to avoid disappointment!

Our 2019 tickets are on sale 9am Friday 25th January.

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 Early Bird ticket for each person staying with us.
  3. One refundable Tent Deposit Ticket of £30 for each tent that your party brings.
    (This will be returned once you have taken both your tent and belongings away with you.)
  4. To be respectful to your fellow campers.
  5. To leave no litter and take your tent and everything else home with you when you leave.

Staying with Love Your Tent gives you access to:

A Reserved Pitch:
You bring your tent and we give you a reserved, marked out pitch, appropriate for the size of your tent, yours for the duration of the festival, no matter when you arrive.

Lovely Toilets and Showers:
Fabulous and clean showers and flushing loos are all you need to make you feel fresh and clean throughout the weekend.

Our Private Café
A private café just for our Tent Lovers, serving a mix of delicious coffee, hot drinks and snacks throughout the day.

Pamper Parlour
Equipped with mirrors, quality hairdryers and hair straighteners, the Love Your Tent Pamper Parlour is at your disposal to make yourself look amazing ahead of the rigours of the festival.

Our Secret Stage Returns.....

As always, we thank you for joining our community of wonderful people and will be rewarding you with a few little extras, such as our exclusive secret stage where you can listen to some great, live acoustic music with the occasional visit from festival performers whilst relaxing in our lovely lounge tent and where you can also grab refreshments, great coffee and hot food.

A Helping Hand

As in previous years, we will have our wonderful and dedicated team of scouts on hand in case you need help with your tent, or returning to your car/taxi/bus after the festival.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Car Parking

If driving you will need to park in the main Festival car parks and follow the arches through the Campsite to get to Love Your Tent.

Situated right near the Festival site it is really easy to get to!

Be quick!

For more details visit the Island Harbour website or call 01983 539 994.

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. Both of these must have been purchased in advance.

Registration for Respect Camping opens Monday 4th February at 10am

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.

Love Your Tent team x

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

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.

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