CAMPING INFO AND FAQS
Campsite Opening Times
You can arrive as early as 10am on Friday 26th May 2023, this is when we open the car parks to let the traffic off the roads. The campsites and caravan/motorhome areas are then opened to the general public from 12 midday on Friday 26th May 2023 and close on at 2pm on Monday 29th May 2023. If you have a weekend ticket you can arrive on any day you wish after the campsites are open. The first bands start playing at 1pm on Friday 26th May 2023
Your weekend ticket price already includes access to the standard camping areas.
Family Camping/Quiet Camping
If you would like to camp in the family/quiet camping area you will need to have purchased a ‘Family ticket’. This is priced slightly higher than a standard ticket but this will enable us to provide extra facilities by way of extra toilet blocks and extra showers and make sure these are regularly serviced, please note the family area is also a ‘quiet’ area so is not exclusive to families, anyone can upgrade to this so long as you are not noisy!
Campervans and motorhomes
The area closest to the arena entrance has been reserved for less-abled customers. This is not to segregate or separate less-abled people form the rest of the festival as they are welcome to camp in standard camping, but just to make their stay more comfortable as there is less distance to travel when accessing the arena and the accessible toilets are situated next to it. More information about accessible facilities can be found
Coming back to Glastonbudget, Camping Plus offers you and your friends the option of reserving a space to camp in, these spaces will be limited and will work similar to the campervan area but you can choose your plot similar to choosing where you sit when you go to the theater. They aren’t available to buy right now but you will need to add these as upgrades to tickets you have already purchased anyway so you can still take advantage of the early bird offer.
This year by special request we are able to offer luxury camping. Situated in Camping area C (see the map) you can hire furnished Bell Tents. These same beautiful Tents are available in the VIP camping area as well for the same price, but you will need to buy the upgrade ticket. See VIP Below or
Returning to Glastonbudget 2023, VIP offers those of you who have been asking and fancy a bit of Glamorous camping at your favorite festival. There will be various camping options available to purchase from bringing your own tent up to hiring a Luxury Bell Tent. These tailored packages would also certainly make a very special gift for someone on that special occasion.
Where to pitch your tent
All camping areas on the site are on a first come first served basis apart from Camping+ and VIP. The areas nearest the entrance to the arena tend to fill up first and quite quickly. It is not possible to reserve camping space in standard camping but we do make sure there is room for all camping. Areas in standard camping can get noisy at times however these are patrolled and policed and excessive noise is dealt with.
Some General Camping Tips
Campsite stewards and security can direct and advise you, and are your first port of call in an emergency. They can be found at the entrance to each of the camping fields.
It is worth noting where you camp in relation to the main arena entrance and remembering your campsite letter, campsite A is the nearest to the arena entrance and D is the furthest away.
Don’t bring valuables to the festival, this is the message the police have advised us on giving out. If you really have too don’t leave them in your tent, keep them on you and be clever about where you leave them at night, the majority of thefts at festivals happen when people are still in their tents asleep, so try to keep them on you at all times, even when asleep. To a thief valuable items are cash, so look after your valuables like your cash.
