The SiteThe land used for the festival is a working farm and so there are areas that are easier to manage than others. The weather conditions can affect the accessibility of the whole site. The area of the farmland used is approx. 500m wide and 200m long, across 3 different fields, as well as a woodland area. There are over 16 different venues that will have music playing/entertainment throughout the weekend. Both the varying sizes and unique locations of each venue makes it tricky to provide viewing platforms but also means that there is music accessible to everyone.
FacilitiesThere are a fair few places across the site where people can sit and relax if they want a break from the festivities, as well as accessible toilet facilities.We have a separate accessible camping area, situated close to the arena entrance, where there are concessions and bars close by. The camping area itself provides easy access to the designated car park, accessible showers/toilets and electrical charging points for wheelchairs/mobility scooters. Anyone eligible to stay in this area can camp with up to 4 people and one live-in vehicle.
