There will be multiple bars onsite offering a range of lagers, IPAs, ciders and spirits as well as soft drinks and water to ensure every one remains sufficiently hydrated. To complement this there will also be a wide choice of local food vendors offering a diverse choice of cuisine from the legendary Cornish pasty to Asian-inspired noodles. Please note all vendors will be cashless so remember to bring your cards.

Tickets for the event can be purchased at Ticketmaster with a range of options available, from Single Day passes starting at £61.60pp with an option to upgrade to the VIP Garden Pass for an additional £33.60. The VIP route offers you a luxury garden to dance in with your friends and family, great views of the main stage, posh flushable loo’s (if you know you know) and probably the most important feature is a private bar! If you are feeling brave you can purchase a 4 day pass for the extremely fair price of £199pp.

The gates for admission will open at 16:00 each day with live music running until roughly 22:30 each night. However, with the beautiful location it’s advised that you arrive early to soak in the amazing views and feel the buzzing atmosphere. 

One thing for sure is that this 4 day festival is going to be one of the highlights of the year in Plymouth and we can’t wait for it to get here!
