The festival has a large main stage in a natural amphitheatre that showcases well known rock and indie names, a legendary act or two, and rising stars, in a relaxed festival atmosphere.

Expected to make a return in 2009 is the 5,000 capacity circus style Big Top. This plays host to a special night on the Thursday on offer to campers and Festival First Members only, and then acts as a second stage once the festival begins.

Away from the Main Stage, the Platform One Bandstand offers unsigned acts and local bands, around 50 acts in all.

The arena is open from 2pm until midnight on the Friday, 11am until midnight on the Saturday, and 11am until 11pm on the Sunday. No bottles, cans, chairs, etc, may be taken into the arena. The Campsites are open from noon on Thursday until noon on Monday. Strawberry Fields opens on Thursday at 6pm until midnight for campers and Festival First Members.
