F.A.Q

Here are some of our most frequently-asked questions. Let us know if you have any more!

Camping and facilities

Q. Are there toilets on site?

Yes, there will be proper toilets, with loo roll and hand-washing facilities. Please have respect for your fellow campers and keep them clean.

Q. Are there showers on site?

Yes, there will be a couple of proper showers for you to use, with ample changing areas. Please have respect for your fellow campers and keep them clean.

Q. Can I bring a campervan?

Sure! There’s plenty of space.

Q. What about glamping?

We have a limited selection of hard-standing pods and bell tents for hire if you prefer to glamp, which will be available to book on the ticket page unless sold out.

Q. Are there electric hook-ups?

There are a limited number of electric hook-up points around the camping area, which will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, so make sure you arrive early on the Friday if you want one of these. There is a charge of £5/night for the use of these, payable at the bar during the weekend. Please note that you will need to bring the appropriate 16A hook-up cable for your needs. If this is for a tent, please read these safety precautions. Please also note that high-current appliances such as kettles and heaters are not permitted.

Q. Can I stay over Sunday night?

If you’re not sure if you’ll be ready or fit to leave after the music finishes on Sunday, you will have the option of staying the Sunday night for a small additional charge payable at the bar during the weekend.

Q. Can I camp wherever I like?

Yes, within the dedicated camping area. There’s plenty of space to pitch up where you prefer, but please consider fire risk limitation, safety and access. Please also take note of any direction given to you from ground staff – if your unit is judged to pose a risk to the safety and comfort of others you will be asked to move.

Q. Will I be able to drive to my camping pitch to unload?

The festival site is in a bowl, so this will depend on the weather. If it’s wet (or if rain is forecast before the weekend is out), then you may have to park at the top and walk down – otherwise you could get stuck at the bottom of the hill. If this is the case we’ll have some transport to help bring all your camping gear down – but please don't pack the kitchen sink, you won't need it!

Event timing

Q. When is the earliest I can arrive?

The gates will be open from midday on Friday, so feel free to arrive early to get pitched-up and settled-in.

Q. What time will I need to arrive by?

For your security, the gated entrance to the event site will close at 10pm on the Friday night, and 4pm on the Saturday. There will be strictly no access after these times without prior arrangement.

Q. What time does the music start/finish?

The DJs and acts will start at 4pm on the Friday and continue through until 2am. On Saturday, the DJs will kick-off at around midday, continuing through to 2am. Then on Sunday, we will have some DJs starting at around midday (the hangover selection) and continue on until at least 4pm. Due to licensing requirements, the 2am cut-off will be strictly adhered to.

Site information

Q. Where is the event being held?

In the beautiful rolling countryside of Worcestershire, just a stones throw from the Malvern Hills. The location of the event is the Out to Grass Leisure Camping Park at the following address:

Out to Grass
Woodend Farm
Cradley
Malvern
Worcs
WR13 5JW

Q. Where is the nearest train station?

Great Malvern and Malvern Link train stations are both around 6 miles by road from the site.

Q. Can I bring my children?

No, sorry. This is an adult-only event, and under-18s are not allowed on site for safety reasons. Any children caught on-site will be immediately confiscated and quarantined until after the event.

Q. Can I park on site?

Yes, there will be a dedicated parking area, just a short walk from the camping area. To ensure there’s plenty of flat ground for camping on, you won’t be able to park up on your pitch unless you’re bringing a campervan or caravan. The speed limit on-site is 5mph, so please drive slowly.

Q. Is the site secure?

The event site is on private land and has a single gated entrance that will be locked between 10pm and 10am. There will also be a team of security to ensure that only ticket holders can gain access during opening hours.

Q. What should I wear?

Anything goes! However, as this is an outdoor event it’s wise to dress appropriately. Stilettos and grass don’t mix well, so flat shoes/trainers/wedges are your best bet. Hopefully we won’t see any rain, but bring a waterproof jacket just-in-case. And even if it’s a scorcher, the temperature will often drop considerably as night falls, so bring a warm jumper to wear in the evening.

Q. Can I smoke?

Yes, but only outside. There is a strict no-smoking policy in any of the tents. Please don’t drop your cigarette butts on the floor – use the bins provided.

Q. Is there drinking water on site?

Yes, there is a drinking water tap to use as you need.

Q. Are BBQ’s allowed?

Q. Can I buy food at the event?

Q. Can I buy drinks at the event?

Yes – there is a licensed bar on-site which will be open during peak hours, offering reasonably-priced draft and canned lager and ale, plus popular spirits & mixers. Please drink responsibly and dispose of your rubbish in the bins provided.

Q. Can I bring my own food to the event?

Yes, but please ensure you bring appropriate storage to keep food cool. A food vendor will be on-site over the weekend should you prefer not to BYO, or simply run out.
