Please observe the rules of the festival...
Any complaint should be reported to the Festival Office.
Just outside the Festival Site there is a play area, playing field and skate park. On site there is an area with some limited entertainment for children during afternoons, however there are a few precautions you may wish to take to ensure that it is an enjoyable experience for everybody.
It is not recommended that young children get too close to the sound systems for the main stage and would recommend using ear protection on children for their own comfort if it is felt necessary.
Please respect the enjoyment of other festival goers in controlling accompanying children. If children are deemed to be an unacceptable nuisance to other festival goers they may be asked to leave.
The music on each evening will go on until 9:30pm. You should use your judgement and knowledge of your children to determine whether they will find this enjoyable or too late for them.
For hygiene and safety reasons only registered assistance dogs will be allowed in any part of the Festival Site, including the campsite. Dogs cannot be left in vehicles or caravans at any time. Visitors attempting to bring a dog (other than a guide dog) on to the campsite or Festival site will be turned away.
