The event admission fee is priced per person aged 13 or over attending the festival. This includes; admission, camping (If you are buying the weekend pass) and spectating. Therefore there is no additional charge to camp except for the parking charge per vehicle for the duration of your stay. Camping refers to staying overnight in either a tent, van, caravan or motorhome. We will have portable toilets, accessible toilets, urinals and showers onsite, all free to use. Drinking Water is available with several taps located onsite.
Camping pitches are allocated on a first come, first served basis. There is no booking system in place. A pitch is defined as a vehicle or a structure for which one or many persons will reside in over the race weekend.
Apologies to say there are no electric hook up points.
Parking should be purchased online at the same time as you purchase your weekend pass through the same website. Everyone that is entering the festival that is aged 13 or over will need to purchase an admission ticket. Anyone aged 12 and under can enter the festival for free and do not need to purchase a ticket. Please note that anyone aged 17 or under they must be accompanied by a responsible adult aged 21 or over (no more than three children per responsible adult). All one day only attendees vehicles will be parked in the ‘One Day’ parking area which will be located near the main entrance.
For those coming from the M50 J2 please do not follow your sat nav and turn right down a narrow country lane. It is super narrow and twisty and will upset the locals. Please carry on and drive through Ledbury.
For those camping in tents, motorhorhomes and caravans, all vehicles must be parked in the camping field (side on to avoid rolling), please ensure the hand brake is on and the vehicle is in gear. Your tent should then be pitched at the end of your vehicle.
We will have dedicated areas for everyone in both the Family/Quiet Camping and the General Camping areas.
Gazeebos/e-zee-ups. We allow awnings that are fixed to motorhomes/vans/caravans to be erected. Stand alone structures must be secured using large metal pegs/stakes along with substantial ratchet style straps. We reserve the right to demand you take your structure down if we feel it is not secure.
There are two main camping areas; General Camping and Family/Quiet Camping. If you are looking to access the far side of the venue, past the finish arena as you drive through then you must be onsite by 08:30 on Saturday as the access road cuts through the live race course for the downhill race. Access will re-open for that area around 17:00. Please note this is dependant on the time the downhill finishes as crashes/red flags may delay the race.
