Only small, clean, campfires only are allowed in the campsites they must be kept below knee height and less than one pace wide. They will be monitored and extinguished if otherwise. A new policy started last year is expected to be reintroduced this year whch means that ALL campfires will be extinguished after 8pm on Sunday. There will be a firewood trader onsite to buy clean wood for your small campfires - clean firewood will be on sale until 6pm Sunday evening.

Once again this year no flags will be allowed to be taken into the festival arena, as they obstruct the view of people behind.
