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.

Please note Chinese Lanterns are banned at Cropredy.

There'll be more information when available.
