Tickets are priced as follows:

Three-day tickets cost £115; two-day (Friday and Saturday) tickets cost £105; and Saturday-only tickets cost £75.

Children under 12 years old are admitted free provided they are accompanied by an adult ticket holder. Camping is charged per vehicle (up to five occupants). For added convenience and security, tents are erected next to the camping party's vehicle.

Three day camping stickers are priced at £35.

Times

The festival runs from 4pm - 11pm Thursday, Noon - midnight Friday and Saturday. Camp sites open 9am Thursday.

It's a very friendly festival with great ales, no sell-out out to rampant commercialism, and no huge ticket prices.

Getting there

There is a regular service to and from the festival from both the bus and train stations.

Parking

Unlike many other festivals, here you can park your vehicle next to your tent. You MUST have a concert ticket for the day you arrive to camp or caravan. Space on the campsites is for concert goers only. If you wish to camp with friends or family you must meet up somewhere off-site and arrive together as spaces cannot be saved.

There is also a new camping field this year - Field 8 is a 3.6 hectare field on the way to Fields 7a - 7d on School Lane bordered by trees and  hedges.

Please note Chinese Lanterns are banned at Cropredy.

There'll be more information when available.
