The debit or credit card you used to book your tickets will suffice for any ticket queries. For proof of age, a PASS (Proof of Age Standards Scheme) card, driving licence or passport may be required.

The site is relatively flat but it is a green field site and ground conditions can be severely affected by the weather.

Please be prepared for mud and wet grass as well as dusty, dry conditions. We aim to provide a convenient, well laid out site to limit unnecessary travel for pedestrians and wheelchair users. Lighting will be used at night in key areas of the site where necessary.

THE FESTIVAL SITE

No, we are unable to offer power for live-in vehicles on the festival site. If you require power onsite for certain access or medical reasons, please contact info@underthestarsfest.co.uk.

We are unable to provide a specific water point for live-in vehicles on the festival site. There will be general drinking water taps located around site, but these may have limited pressure and are for many people to use, so please come with a full tank if possible.

Yes, please look out for the signs and only dispose of your Elsan waste at the designated point.

No, unfortunately we cannot guarantee this. The festival campsite is arranged on a first come, first served basis. Space cannot be reserved but our on-site volunteers will do their best to accommodate requests within reason.

We really hope so, and we will make all efforts to create an event that is as accessible as possible for all. Accessible parking and camping areas are available.

We also offer free carer tickets to DLA holders. Further to this we have a dedicated accessibility facilitator who can answer your specific accessibility questions. Please contact info@underthestarsfest.co.uk.
