Wilderness Festival Tickets
General Camping Tickets
Located alongside the swimming and boating lakes, this campsite offers stunning views of the festival. All you need to do is book, bring your tent, choose a spot and set up camp for the weekend. Simple.
For those of you who want a little extra shut eye. As such, if you're staying in this campsite, we ask that you do not bring portable sound systems or children under the age of eight. It's a little further from the Main Arena so if you fancy a late-night party, we may ask you to head back that way after 10pm (the unofficial curfew).
A stunning place to call home for four days, in a prime location near the arena, with an eclectic range of accommodation for you to choose between. Exclusive perks include a 24-hour reception, concierge service, a dedicated restaurant and bar, luxury toilets and showers, free pamper parlour, complimentary parking and trolley service to get your bags to your accommodation. Festival Tickets are not included in your accommodation price and must be booked separately. You can only stay in this campsite if you book Boutique Accommodation (large enough for your whole party) and a General Camping ticket (1 per person).
Don't fancy the faff of bringing and pitching your own tent? Meadow Camping offers unfurnished, pre-pitched Meadow Accommodation, so all you need to do is arrive ready to enjoy the festival. Festival tickets are not included in your accommodation price and must be booked separately. You can only stay in this campsite if you book Meadow Accommodation (large enough for your whole party) and a General Camping ticket (1 per person).
Exclusively for those of you bringing little ones. It's close to the Arena and Family Field, saving little legs from getting too tired. Perfect for a family weekend away. Just don't forget your tent. Under 18 tickets can only be booked alongside an adult ticket (max 4 per adult), add these on during the booking process.
