Here is a list of questions regarding the festival that we are frequently asked.

Is the 2022 event going ahead during  the virus situation – WAR in Europe – NO?

No, it’s been postponed until the weekend of 2-3-4 June  2023 due to organising and marketing limitations and rollover ticketholders wanting the original weekend, in June!

We are concerned.  You see we are at the mercy of many outsourced and scheduled bodies. There are many artists, cancelling, event catering and traders unable to trade. Emergency services being withdrawn and essential workforce withdrawing,  those are bad enough, add to that the racecourse, local authority, policing and safety and government bodies pulling at our commitments !!!      We have the problem of covid, war, time and those wanting to roll over to June ! that is a number of prized and regular attendees not available,  !!   It’s very difficult to make ends meet for all walks of life at the moment, we are one such journey. We at the Festy Towers office are trying to salvage the event, we will do as we did in the floods of 2007 and roll over to next year. Tickets are still valid.  It’s more important to stay safe than take a risk. We have had £12500 extra costs due to oil/haulage etc on top of staff being ill and artists pulling out at the late stage in march 22, due to covid.

Can I bring my dog ?

NO, not into the event arena, or main campsite …..  From this year (2023) we will have a separate and dedicated area to camp and park if you have a well-behaved dog.

On the outside perimeter 100 metres from the event site.  It costs nothing to bring your dog and they cannot enter the event site. You can camp/park there and toilets are sited for your use.

Can I bring a picnic or drinks in?

NO, Not into the event  – but you can bring limited food and drinks into the camping and perimeter areas, but strictly NO GLASS.

Is there a dedicated Disabled camping area?

Yes, there is. It’s only 50 metres from the event gates and has toilets and easy access in and around the event.

Can I come and go out of the event?

Yes if you have your dedicated wristband, you can leave and enter at will, up to 11.30 pm. The town centre of Uttoxeter is just 10 minute’s walk away.

Can I camp or stay next to my friends? Can I reserve a space?

It’s on a first-come basis, we have plenty of space though. The Electricity Hook-up spaces are dedicated ONLY  for people who have paid for a hook-up.

Campervans and Caravans to be based on the same FLAT accessible area,  ideally.

What time can I get in?

Gates open at 9 am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Early Thursday entry tickets can get in from 3pm .Gates shut at 12 midnight. All campers to leave by noon Monday.

Is it a long walk from car park to camping? Then 2 event?

NO, very near you are able to park NEXT to your camping tent/ van. It’s only 50 to 100  meters into the stage and craft areas.

Do I need wellies,  does it get wet or boggy? If it rains

NO, in fact, we have based ourselves here for that very reason, it’s a dry easily drained site. No puddles etc even if it should rain, it’s very quickly drained.

There are road/trackways circling the site for ease of access too. We have enough tentage to cover the customers from sun or rain.
