There will be a special Antic Bus from London available at cost price (Manchester, Brighton and Bristol too if necessary)
This festival is NOT about a weekend of loo queues, strip searches and main stage stampedes. This is about workshops, games, good food and an open air living room. And of course lots of bouncy music!
Camping is free and will be in a secure area at the other side of the field from the main stages, however it is a small site. There will be car parking space on site, within very easy stumbling distance from the campsite.
More information will be here when available.
