We are offering two camping options at Secret Sessions Festival, option one is “bring your own tent” and option two is a pitched bell tent or luxury Emperor Ten supplied by Woodville Project.
BRING YOUR OWN TENT

WOODVILLE PROJECT PITCHED TENTS
If you wish to camp at the festival but do not wish to bring your own tent, please purchase your standard or luxury camping ticket at the same time your purchase your 5-night tickets. We will then contact you to work through your camping requirements to make sure you have a super comfortable experience.
CAMPSITE OPENING TIMES
The campsite opens at 08:00 on Wednesday 1st Sept 2021 and closes at 12:00 midday on Monday 6th Sept 2021. The campsite team is available 24 hours a day and you can arrive at any time during this period. If you are putting up your own tent for the first time you might find it easier and so much more enjoyable in the daylight. We appreciate that sometimes getting home at the end of your day from a festival is not always easy, especially from our lovely site, however we are only able to offer camp site facilities to those that have booked accommodation in advance, when purchasing festival tickets.
There are a number of colour-coded campsite zones around the site. We have created three zones, colour-coded with flags, friends, family and luxury. There is plenty of space in the campsites for the capacity attending and so you should be able to find a space which is comfortable for you.
On arrival at the campsites, please ask the gate staff to direct you to the zone you have booked. If a campsite zone is full, they will direct you to an alternative zone.
Once camped, take a note of a nearby fixed point or mark your site with a flag so that you can find your way back. Say hello to your neighbours so you can look after each other throughout the festival. You cannot drive into the campsites at any time due to fire regulations.
Campsite Zone Managers will be working 24 hours in each zone. There are also teams of security and Campsite Support Teams in each zone who are there if you need any help.
The Family Campsite zone is our dedicated area for families with children 16 or under at the festival. The site features dedicated toilets, showers, washing up facilities and a convenience store and food traders. The family campsite zone is shown on the map in pink. To stay in the Family Campsite, you will need to purchase the 5-night tickets for teens or children in addition to your adult 5-night ticket. You will need to arrive at the campsite together as a family. Please be sure to choose the correct option when purchasing.
Those staying in the Family Camping Zone will have access to our Family Car Park, located close to the Family Campsite Zone to minimise your journey from car to tent.
No single or groups of adults will be permitted in the Family Campsite Zone unless accompanied by children 16 or under. Due to limited space, the Family Campsite Zone is restricted to relatives and guardians of children.
Groups of friends and other family members who arrive without children should camp in the friends campsite zone.
A picnic area with seating is also available for families close to the campsite.
The Friends Campsite Zone is located closer to the festival arena and has access to showers and toilets within the arena. The streetfood and convenience store can be accessed within the campsite (as shown on the campsite map) The Friends Campsite Zone is shown in green and identified by green flags.
Luxury Camping Zone is a special experience with extra comfort and all the support you need. From the moment you arrive in our private car park next to the Luxury Camping Zone, we’ll be on hand to help make your festival so much better than you could have imagined.
