Camping and Accommodation

Camping

The Festival Campsite, for Tents, Caravans and Motor Homes, is situated above Priddy, it surrounds the Village hall and the Church.  From almost all of the site there are good views of the rather lovely surrounding countryside and in particular of the ancient barrows on the next rise (and one in the camping field!).

Festival goers come to the campsite and make it their own each year.  Most of the campsite is freestyle- with some groups of people in tents, caravans and motor homes meeting up to attend the festival- but often it’s in ones and twos.  One of our fields is just for tents.  Our experience is that most people are very considerate when coming back to their tents after enjoying the festival.

The campsite is equipped with lots of trailer toilets and hot showers too.  There are plenty of water points, recycling facilities and various other luxuries the modern camper expects.

The campsite is open from 10am on the Friday of the festival, it closes at 10am on the following Monday (Stewards that need to camp outside of this can be accomodated).  Please avoid turning up too early- we won’t be ready for you!  After you have followed the festival signs to Priddy (please don’t rely upon Sat Nav), go directly to the campsite, go to your pitch (stewards will show you what the options are), park (we ask people not to move their cars over the weekend once parked) and then unload.  Once you are set up, please go to the Festival Office (a few minutes’ walk away on Priddy Green) for your wrist bands so you can get into the venues.

Camping is available only at the time you book weekend tickets- we have been selling out of camping tickets early for some years, so try to book for Priddy Festival as soon as you can.   Stewards don’t pay for festival tickets, or for camping- ever thought of being a steward?  If you are too late to book camping this year, then see below for alternative accommodation!
