Glastonbury Festival 2014

Campervans and Caravans


Picture: John Wallace

Campervan/caravan tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2014 are £85 and will be available in Spring 2014. You will not be able to book Campervan/caravan Tickets until April when you have paid the balance for at least one of the tickets on your booking.

If you've already made your booking, you can book a campervan/caravan pass by calling See on 0844 412 4626.

A campervan/caravan ticket must be purchased in advance to allow access into the campervan/caravan
area. Each person entering this area must also be a weekend Festival ticket holder. Caravans, trailer
tents and campervans will only be admitted to special secure fields either along the Blue Route (off the
A37), or on the White Route (off the A361) according to the type of ticket purchased. These designated
areas are the only places where ticket holders can sleep in vehicles - and these vehicles will only be
allowed in the fields if they have living accommodation with fitted sleeping facilities and either fitted
cooking or washing facilities.

Campervan/caravan tickets will be sent out with your Festival tickets. As with your Festival tickets,
campervan/caravan tickets are non-transferable, and attempts to re-sell them may result in their
cancellation.

Please note, if you hire a campervan to be delivered to the site, it can only be delivered to the East campervan fields (not the West).

Can I park my campervan/ caravan in the main car parks?

Separate fields for ticket holders to park campervans and caravans are available adjacent to the Festival
site. Sleeping in vehicles in the car parks is strictly forbidden, as it is contrary to our licence. Regular
checks will be made by Security patrols.

Back to top

Do I need a special ticket for the campervan/caravan fields?

Yes. Campervan/caravan tickets to park in these fields are available for an additional fee of £85, and
can be purchased at the same time as paying your Festival ticket balance. See the Tickets page for
details. Please note that for 2013 there are two campervan areas – on Blue Route on the East of the site;
and on White Route on the West of the site. Please ensure you follow the correct route according to the
colour of your ticket.

Back to top

Does every person staying in our campervan/caravan need a Festival ticket?

Yes. No one will be allowed into the Campervan/Caravan fields without a weekend Festival ticket.

Back to top

How do our friends gain access to the campervan fields if they travel separately?

If your friends are arriving separately to your campervan or caravan they will not be able to gain vehicular access to the campervan fields (as only one car is permitted on the pitch). They will need to buy a car park ticket to park in the public car parks, or travel by public transport, and make their way to the campervan fields on foot via the pedestrian gates. If they are travelling to the East side they can walk directly from the car park into the campervan area. On the West side they will need to park in the car parks, then enter the site through the pedestrian gates and walk through the site to the West Campervan pedestrian gate.

What counts as 'suitable fitted facilities' in a camper/caravan?

Your campervan/caravan MUST have purpose-built fitted sleeping facilities and either fitted cooking
or washing facilities. Any converted vehicles must clearly be live-in vehicles. This does not mean
simply a van with a piece of foam cut to size for a bed, and a bucket for washing!

A team of campsite staff and security staff will check that campervans and caravans coming into these
fields have bona fide living accommodation. No other vehicles will be let onto these fields under any
circumstances - not even late replacement vehicles in the case of a breakdown - sorry.

Back to top

What will happen to my vehicle if it is considered unsuitable for the campervan fields?

Unsuitable vehicles, including unconverted vans, with tickets for the camper van fields, will not be
allowed entry and will be sent to one of the festival car parks - and, as it is contrary to our licence,
security patrols will not permit sleeping in any vehicles in these car parks.

Back to top

What facilities are provided in the campervan/caravan fields?

Water, waste-water containers, toilets, and a food trader open 24 hours a day. The fields are surrounded by steel shield fencing and patrolled by security staff.

Is electricity available?

There is no electricity provided for field users.

Back to top

Does the Festival provide campers or caravans for hire on site?

The Festival does not rent caravans to ticket holders, or have any arrangements with contractors to rent caravans.

Back to top

Can I hire a campervan/caravan myself and bring it to the Festival?

Yes, provided you have purchased a weekend Festival ticket and a campervan ticket.

Back to top

Can the Festival supply details of campervan/caravan hire companies we can use?

The Festival holds no such details, and is unable to provide any information regarding hire. Please make your own enquiries.

How do we gain access to the campervan/caravan fields on arrival?

The only access to the East campervan/caravan fields is via the Blue Route, along from the A37.

The only access to the West campervan/caravan fields is via the White Route, along the A361.

A campervan/caravan ticket with your specific routing colour will be sent to you with your Festival tickets, which will permit access to the Pylle Road via the Blue Route, or the White Route from the A361 and allow you to park in the appropriate campervan/caravan  fields.

You will need to display the coloured routing element in your window on approaching the site.
You will then be issued with your pass on site once your campervan/caravan has been checked and
approved by the campervan/caravan field stewards.

When can we gain vehicular access to the camper/caravan fields?

From 1200 hours Tuesday 24th June until 1400 hours Sunday 29th June, and then from 1800 hours
Monday 1st July.

To enable traffic to exit the site, Blue Route becomes one-way outbound from 1400 hours Sunday
afternoon until 1800 hours on Monday evening. As a result, no vehicles can access the campervan/
caravan fields during this time. Please do not leave the campervan/caravan fields in your vehicle and
expect to get back to the fields during these times, or arrange for others to pick up during this period, as
access will be refused.

Back to top

How do I arrange for my hired campervan/caravan to get on and off site?

We have developed a system with the contractors delivering the campervans/caravans so they can use
the hire document/delivery note to bring the vehicle on to the Festival site. The contractor will need to
arrange access to the fields by contacting the Off-Site Manager through the Festival Site Office. The
ticket holder then uses the campervan/caravan permit to get into the site when they arrive later.

After the Festival, it is not possible to gain access to the site to pick up a caravan between 1400 hours
on Sunday afternoon and 1800 hours on Monday evening. Campervan fields staff leave on Monday
at 1800 hours, but caravans can be left until Tuesday for a contractor to pick up. However, this is at
the contractor's risk. The Festival accepts no responsibility for any caravan left after the fields close at
1800 hours on Monday.

Back to top

Can my car be kept beside the caravan in the campervan/caravan field?

Yes, there is space for one car to be parked beside or infront of the caravan. However, any other
member of your party arriving separately by car will need to purchase a car parking ticket for £25

Back to top

Can I pitch a tent beside my caravan/campervan?

The Fire Officer will not allow ticket-holders to camp beside campervans or cars due to the risk of contiguous fire, but it is permitted to camp behind them.

Back to top

Can I bring my trailer tent?

Yes, as long as it is a purpose-built, manufacturer-made trailer tent.

Back to top

Can I bring a winnebago or extra large caravan?

Yes. However, for all vehicles longer than 8 metres it will be necessary to purchase two caravan/campervan tickets, to cover the extra space required.

Back to top

Will I be able to put up an awning? Can I sleep under the awning?

Yes, manufacturers awnings are acceptable and can be slept in if they are a manufacturers annex or
inner tent , but please make parking steward aware if you are sleeping in the awning.

Back to top

How will I know where to place my campervan/caravan/towing car/awning/tent in the field?

Stewards will be on hand in the campervan fields to advise on siting vehicles. It is not possible to
reserve a specific area - space is allocated on a first come first served basis. Caravans, their towing cars
and campervans will be parked in rows, with a 4 metre fire road between the rows. Each pitch will be
7 metres wide by 8 metres long. For any vehicle longer than 8 metres it will be necessary to purchase
two caravan/campervan tickets, to cover the extra space required.

Back to top

Can I bring a generator?

No. Absolutely no generators are to be brought on site.

Back to top

Can I bring glass bottles with me in my campervan/caravan?

Glass is not permitted anywhere on festival land. The security staff will also check for any other items
not permitted on site, as specified in the terms and conditions on weekend tickets. Security staff will
confiscate any such items and may refuse entry to the site. The decision of the security team will be
final.
