CARS & PARKING
Please do not use a Sat Nav system to get to the festival as there are different routes into the site depending on which direction you are approaching from and whether you are being dropped off, a 5-night camper, bringing a campervan, a day ticket holder or an artist. Instead, please refer to the temporary festival road signage, as you get close to the festival site.
5-night and day car parking is separate to the campsites in adjacent or nearby locations shown on the map. Car parking is NOT included in the price of your ticket, save for luxury camping. No sleeping, camping or fires are allowed in the car parks.

Notice to members of the public wishing to travel in Taxis or Private Hire Vehicles.
Please try to pre-book taxis where possible, as the taxi rank may have limited taxis.
Know the difference:
Taxis will be ranked up at Drop off/Pick Up Point at the main entrance. Taxis are clearly identified with the word TAXI on the roof of the vehicle along with an external plate on the rear and an internal plate on the windscreen inside the vehicle. The driver will also have a badge on his/her person.
It is a legal requirement that the meter that shows the fare that you will be charged is turned on immediately when you commence your journey. A meter must always be used throughout your journey regardless of whether you accept a set fare* before the journey commences, this then shows that you have not been overcharged.
*A pre-agreed or set fare in a Hackney Carriage vehicle must never be more than the meter reading.
Private Hire Vehicles need to be pre-booked by telephone to collect you. It is unlawful for a private hire vehicle to take you unless you have booked them in advance. Private hire vehicles also are identified from an external plate to the rear and an internal plate on the windscreen. The driver will also have a badge on his/her person.
Please ensure you ask the fare to be charged when you make the booking, if you are happy to accept that charge you have entered into a contract and it cannot be altered when you are collected. It is advisable to get quotes from different companies to ensure you are fairly charged.
There is no pedestrian access to the festival site and the roads around the site are not suitable for pedestrians.
In the event you need to walk onto or offsite at night then please wear reflective clothing or something bright and highly visible as the roads are not lit and there are no pavements or verges.
