The Garden Party is taking place in the grounds of the Kelburn Castle near Largs (40mins from Glasgow, 90mins from Edinburgh), known around the world as the site of the Graffiti Project. Quality food, bars, chill-out areas, stalls, cinema, BBQ, woodland walks all within the site.
The campsite is open from Friday midday. The festival starts on Friday afternoon and runs through until 3am on the Monday morning. Music runs until 2am on Friday night, and 4am on Saturday night. There is space for campervans and caravans. Camping is free – the campsite is situated only a few minutes walk from the festival, and command spectacular views to the Firth of Clyde and beyond. Camping at Kelburn Garden Party is inclusive, although we levy an “environmental deposit”, which is returned on departure providing campsite users remove their tent and fill a sack of refuse from their pitch. There is a dedicated family campsite, campervan pitches for both families and late night revellers and hot showers!
The festival site is very easy to reach. Trains go to Largs from Glasgow on a regular basis, and from Largs it is a very short and cheap taxi ride. For those coming from further afield cheap flights to Glasgow Prestwick are available at Ryanair. You can get to Largs by train or bus from the airport (around 1 hour journey). Cheap advance train tickets are available now for travel to Glasgow from around the UK.
To encourage car-sharing and public transport there will be a charge for vehicles and an Environmental Deposit system in operation.
More information will be here when available.
