Gate times, arrival and leaving

When does it all start and finish?

The 2022 festival runs from midday on 15th July until midnight Sunday 17th July.

When can I arrive?

Provisional gate times are:

Friday at 12pm (noon) till 10pm.
Saturday 10.30am to 8pm.
Sunday 10.30am to 6pm.

Admittance to the site outside these times will be at the discretion of security.

When do I have to leave?

We’d love to have you to stay longer, but sadly we have to ask you to leave the site by 12pm (noon) on Monday.

Please be sensible and make sure whoever is driving is in a fit state to drive:

  • Make sure they stop drinking alcohol early on Sunday
  • Make sure they have had enough sleep before setting off

To encourage this, all entertainment will stop a little earlier on Sunday. Be aware that the local police are aware of the festival, and may well be breathalysing drivers as they leave the site.

Anyone we suspect of drink/drug-driving may have their car keys confiscated and will be reported to the police.

Be safe and be sensible!

Can I pop off-site or leave over-night?

Yes, you are welcome to leave the site during the day to visit the local shops for supplies (alcohol can only be taken onto the festival site on first entry – see alcohol limits here). You may also sleep off-site. In either case, please be aware of gate times though.

Any vehicle movement is at the discretion of stewards and security at the time though, and our primary concern is the safety of other festival guests and the local community. Anyone thought to be moving a vehicle whilst intoxicated is liable to have their vehicle keys confiscated by security.
