This page contains detailed information about our festival. If your question is not answered please contact us.
Dogs and pets (other than certified guide dogs) are not permitted on-site.
Camping at Thornbridge Outdoors is included in your weekend ticket. It is conveniently close to the main event arena, and we’ll pop some portaloos in places that are a little further away in case you need to go in the night. If you fancy camping in style, Teepees are also available to book.
You’ll find the following amenities on-site:
- Hot showers
- Washing up area
- Water points
Remember: the closer you camp to the main stage, the louder it will be!
If you are arriving by car you will need a car park pass. Parking is provided on the Thornbridge Outdoors grounds in designated areas. In wet weather you may be required to park on the road as the ground can become unsuitable for vehicles.
Parking is not possible beside your pitch, teepee or Lodge Accommodation - please be prepared to carry your kit from your car. At most this will be a 400 m walk.
Always be considerate of others when parking.
Camper vans and live-in vehicles
If your tent has an engine and 4 wheels, you’ll need to get yourself a camper van ticket for the Big Shakeout Festival!
Due to fire regulations, you’ll be parked up in a field designated for vehicles.
Please note: there are no electric/waste/water hook ups available – you’ll need to be completely self-sufficient.
In bad weather, the beautiful, grassy ground Thornbridge Outdoor can become unsuitable for vehicles. Thornbridge Outdoors reserve the right to prohibit vehicles on-site in such circumstances.
