Your Questions Answered - Camping at Wannasee Penrith

campiniconWannasee Penrith has excellent camping facilities available, all close to the main festival site. There are a number of large camp sites, each located very close to the main festival area, in the beautiful grounds of Hutton in the Forest, so you can pitch up, relax, and enjoy a whole weekend of brilliant live music, without a long hike!

CAMP SITES: The camp sites will be split between Standard Camping and Quiet Camping. Each camp site will have sections for Live-In Vehicles (Motorhomes, Caravans and Camper Vans), or Tents and accompanying cars, parked securely and safely, close by to the tents area. The sites will be filled sequentially, upon arrival, to ensure organised camping and a fair pitch size for everyone, so if you want to pitch up next to your friends please aim to meet up and arrive together.

TENTS: If camping in a tent, whilst we do not operate strict pitch sizes, please use discretion to be fair to everyone and bring a tent that is no larger than 2-person per camper, e.g. no bigger than a 4-person tent for 2 people, 6-person tent for 3 people, 8-person tent for 4 people, etc. This will ensure everyone gets fair space, as if everyone brought 8-person tents for 2 campers, for example, it would reduce the number of camping tickets available.

QUIET CAMPING: These designated quiet camp sites will have a strictly enforced noise curfew of 11.30pm, which you will be able to camp in, by choosing the Quiet Camping tickets option, to ensure you get a peaceful night's sleep.

DISABLED: The FREE DISABLED ACCESS PERMIT is available to order (one per person) for individuals who require camping in the Disabled Camping Area of their respective camp site and access to the disabled facilities inside the music arena.

AGE RESTRICTIONS: Anyone aged 14-17 MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult (age 25 or above) and anyone aged 13 or under MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult (age 18 or above).

  • Campsite access is from 10am on Friday 25th August 2023 until 2pm on Monday 28th August 2023. There will also be an early arrival option on Thursday night, where you can choose to arrive and pitch up on Thursday 24th August 2023 between 5pm and 10pm, but please don't arrive before 5pm as the site will not be open and you'll be unable to wait and queue on the road outside, for safety reasons. This early Thursday arrival option is automatically included for all camping ticket holders, but does not include Glamping early arrival, which has normal arrival times from Friday 10am onwards.
  • Camping ticket prices are on our Penrith Tickets Page and include full entry to the music and free parking for the length of your stay.
  • If you have a car you can park close by to your tent in the nearest available parking zone, for the duration of your stay, so no long walks carrying your camping gear!
  • Cars can park next to caravans and small awnings on the side of caravans and motor homes are permitted. All camp sites will have 24 hour security, drinking water, toilet blocks which will be manned 24/7 and access to the showers blocks. 
  • Please note that the sites are filled sequentially to keep the camp sites organised and to ensure everyone gets a fair pitch so pitches cannot be kept empty and 'reserved' for later arrivals.
