Campsite Rules

To help keep the campsite safe and enjoyable for all we have a couple of campsite rules.

  2. Leave no trace – Bag and bin all your rubbish, use the recycling bins where possible

  4. Quiet time 11.00pm to 7.00am remember we have families on site

Punk Campers-01.png

We have managed to secure a limited number of campervan spaces right next to the main festival area on the Coal Pier at the water's edge.  You'll be right in the centre of the festival and just beside the town centre.

 

Campervans are limited to a MAXIMUM length of 6 metres.  Power will be available on-site.  Spaces MUST be booked prior to arrival and unfortunately, due to the limited spaces, we are unable to offer day ticket spots for campervans.
