When you have purchased tickets online, you will receive an email confirming your order. This is your eticket which you will need to either print off and bring with you to the festival or have it available on your mobile phone for us to scan on arrival. The earlier you buy your tickets the cheaper they are. There is a small 5% online booking fee to cover p&p for camping passes plus our online secure booking system fees. Tickets are non refundable, however it is possible to transfer your tickets to someone else.
ALL TICKET HOLDERS - NEW FOR 2022.
We no longer send out wristbands in advance. You must bring your E-TICKET with you to the festival. Either a paper print out or displayed on your mobile phone. You will collect your wristbands at the festival BOX OFFICE once you have parked in either the campsite or day parking.
If you book a camping pitch, you will receive your camping passes in advance by post. The camping pass sticker must be applied to your windscreen on arrival so we can fast track you onto the campsite.
There's up to four nights camping at Beardy Folk in one of four areas. You must purchase a ticket to be able to camp at Beardy Folk Festival. Camping pitches are suitable for tents, cars, motor homes and caravans. Caravans are welcome as long as they fit into the pitch size along with the car. All pitches are on grass so please be aware of this with towing etc. There is no electric hook up available.
You will need to book one of the zones if you want to camp at Beardy Folk Festival. Book ONE camping pitch per vehicle (eg: tent with car, camper van, motor home or car with caravan - not per person). Each pitch is approx 8m x 7m. Every vehicle coming onto the camping fields will need a pre-booked pass which will be sent out in advance by post. This must be displayed in your windscreen on arrival. Thursday camping is from midday. Friday, Saturday and Sunday camping is from 9am.
General Camping Zone - Pitches and roadways are marked. This zone is closest to the music arenas.
Family Camping Zone - This is a little further away from the music arenas and is aimed at families enjoying the same space.
Quiet Camping Zone - This is next to the day parking field and is best for anyone looking at being a little further away from the music arenas.
Glamping Zone - Nestle into your own white canvas, boutique 5m bell tent and enjoy a VIP camping experience with extras such as a cosy queen bed with fresh white linen, atmospheric fairy lights, Moroccan boho rugs, calming plants, mirrors and furniture. Book glamping pitches direct with our exclusive suppliers - Tee & Toast Glamping. (Glamping can only be booked from 1st September 2021).
Campsite fires, BBQ's & noise
You are welcome to have small RAISED fire pits and raised BBQ's on the campsite as long as you have a fire extinguisher with you and dispose of any waste when it is extinguished and NOT HOT. Ground fires are strictly prohibited. Chinese lanterns are NOT allowed anywhere on site. No music on the campsite after 11pm.
Food, alcohol & own chairs
As we are responsible for the live music and alcohol licence we DO NOT allow your own alcohol, bottles or glassware into the festival arena or any areas outside the campsite. You are welcome to bring your own alcohol to the campsite only. There's a fabulous food court and bar serving local Hobson's real ales, cider, stout, lager, wine and spirits. We have a great value pre-paid £20 Beardy Pints Card for the ales, cider, lager and stout. That's 6 pints for the price of only 5!
