More info

Ticket holders own alcohol is permitted in the campsite but cannot be taken into the arena. The bar in the arena is well stocked will all major brands and caters for all tastes.

Lower Drayton Farm is an active and working unit so heavy machinery maybe coming down the tracks, also because the festival is situated in a field you may find some of the areas of the ground uneven.

A cash point will be available onsite. Parking at The Stafford Blues Festival is totally free.

The 76 or the 76A service run by Arriva bus from Stafford to Wolverhampton passes the festival site. Lower Drayton Farm has its very own bus stop at the top of the lane so just ask your driver to drop you off there. Once you are at the top of the lane its just a short walk down towards the festival site. Please take care as its a single track road so lookout for vehicles.

Both Stafford and Penkridge have train stations which you can then catch the connecting 76 bus service or a taxi to get to the festival site.

Disabled visitors

Disabled visitors are welcome with access to a disabled parking bay which is located inside the main arena. The organiser's try to make the area as easy to access but do take into account the main arena is situated on a grass field.

There'll be more information here when available.
