Do we have to camp?
No, if you choose not to camp your wristband will allow you access on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday, however anyone leaving the site and returning the next day, will be re-searched on entry.

Can I leave the site and return again?
You cannot leave the site and return on the same day. If you leave the festival you will only be allowed to return as of 9am the following day.

Do I have to pay extra for camping?
Nope, it’s included as part of your ticket.

Can I go back to the car once I’m in the festival/campsite?
Once you’re in the festival/campsite you cannot leave and come back in on the same day, so you’ll need all your stuff with you when you first enter. If you leave, you can only come back the following day. The festival/campsite is totally separate to the car park.

How far is it from the car park to the festival/campsite?
For 2017, the car park will be located in a different area of the festival site. This will mean there are no shuttles needed. It will be a short walk (around 5 minutes) from the car park to festival entrance.

Are you allowed to bring knives for camping / food preparation?
No. Common sense will be used when your belongings are searched upon entry. We will only allow small utensils at the sole discretion of our security team.

Is there a campsite shop?
Yes! We will have a campsite shop which will stock everything a discerning camper needs. We’ll also have a campsite bar too, which will operate as an off-license. 

What size gas canisters can you bring?
Your gas canister must be less than 5KG. Any canister of 5KG, or more, will not be allowed into the camping area. You will be asked to return canisters over 5KG to your vehicle.

Will there be boutique camping options?
Yes indeed! For more information click here 

Can I bring a camper van?
Yes, there will be a limited number of camper van tickets available to purchase. Please be aware that all camper van pitches are located in the ‘Camper Van Quiet Zone’. Sorry to be militant, but this is a requirement of the site and has to be enforced. Please don’t book a camper van pitch if this doesn’t appeal to you. Campervan tickets can be purchased here

Is there a restriction on tent size?
No set restriction – however please be considerate to other campers and don’t bring anything ridiculously over the top. 

Can I bring a generator?
For safety reasons generators (of any size) are not permitted.

Can I bring a barbecue or start a fire?
For safety reasons no barbecues or fires are permitted in any circumstance. Anyone found starting a fire will be removed from the festival immediately. This requirement is taken very seriously due to the nature of the site and the vast surrounding woodland. Thanks for understanding! 

When does the campsite open and close?
Campers can arrive as of 2pm on Thursday 24th August and as of 9am on the Friday (25th), Saturday (26th) and Sunday (27th). Non-campers may enter the site as of midday on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The campsite will close at 1pm on Monday 28th August, so you’ll need to be packed up by then!

Is there somewhere I can keep valuables?
Yes! We’ll have secure lockers available on site, which you can pre-book by heading HERE


Will there be cash machines on site?

Disabled access

If you are disabled or care for someone who is, please drop us an email [email protected] and we will be very happy to assist you in every way that we can.


Can I bring my own alcohol ?
As a small independent event we need bar sales to keep the festival alive. The elaborate woodland site and production-heavy nature of Lost Village means it’s very expensive to make the festival happen, and thus we have to stipulate a limit on alcohol brought into the site (most small festivals have this policy). The personal allowance is 8 cans of beer/cider or 1 bottle of wine per person. No spirits are allowed. Thanks for your understanding.

Can I bring glass bottles?
For safety reasons you are not allowed to bring glass bottles into either the camping or festival site.

Can I bring soft drinks ?
Sealed drinks, like bottles of water, are allowed but will be checked on entry to the site. There is no set limit on soft drinks.

Am I allowed to bring my own alcohol or soft drinks into the festival site?
No, your personal alcohol allowance is only for the camping area. There will be numerous bars selling a variety of drinks throughout the festival.


Can I bring food?
Of course, however our food on site will be some of the tastiest you’ve ever had at a festival! We’re committed  to ensuring your experience at Lost Village is an amazing one!

There is no limit re food.

What food will be available?
We’re very particular about what we put in our bellies, so expect a range of high quality global cuisine served in the various Lost Village eateries.

You can also book for our Tribal Banquet by heading here.

Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options will be available from many of our street food restaurants. You can see a guide to some of the vegan food on offer via the Metro HERE (
