The site

The site overlooks Cardigan Bay and across to Snowdonia and has facilities to entertain over 10,000 people each night.


Camping is next to the festival site and is available from Thursday (from 5pm) to Sunday (until 5pm). Booking fee applies. Camping is limited so it is better to book well in advance as space runs out quickly. There will be improvements to the campsite, entry system and campsite security in 2011.s

Quiet camping

The festival has a Quiet Camping area with a strict quiet policy that comes into effect at 11pm each evening. Set next to the sea in 10 acre field, it benefits from being out of the main run of festival and football traffic and yet still close to the car park, with a view overlooking Cardigan Bay. The festival site will be just over a 5 minute walk and the beach only 2 minutes away.

Coach travel

Coach travel can be purchased online, with or without combined festival tickets. To buy coach tickets, click here.


Courtesy buses usually run all weekend between the music site at Penrhos, the wakeboard competitions and Abersoch, Pwllheli and Nefyn, so those who live locally who don't want to camp will still be able to get home.

More information will be here when available.
