Your Questions Answered - Camping at Wannasee Penrith Wannasee 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. 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. Any camping ticket queries please email us via our Contacts Page WHAT TICKET OPTIONS ARE THERE FOR CAMPING? Expand Camping tickets are full weekend only and include the 3 days of music and 3 nights of camping Children have to pay for camping tickets but at a reduced rate. ARE TICKETS CHARGED PER TENT OR PERSON? Expand Camping is charged per person, irrespective of age, and camping tickets include access to the music as well. ARE CARAVANS OR MOTORHOMES ALLOWED? Expand Caravans, camper vans and motorhomes are welcome and the Live-In Vehicle tickets are required per person. ARE ELECTRIC HOOK UPS AVAILABLE FOR CARAVANS? Expand Due to logistical restrictions we are currently unable to offer any electrical hook ups. WHEN CAN WE ACCESS THE CAMPING SITE? Expand The camp site can be accessed from 10am on the Friday (25th August 2023) and at any time after this, as we have full time security on site. The camp site will close at 2pm on the Monday (28th). We also have an early arrival option where you can arrive on the Thursday (24th August 2023) evening and pitch up any time 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. HOW DOES THE QUIET/FAMILY CAMPING SITE DIFFER TO THE STANDARD CAMP SITE? Expand Both the standard and quiet/family camp sites will have 24/7 security, toilet blocks manned 24/7 by stewards and access to the shower blocks, and are all just a short stroll from the main festival site. However, the quiet/family camp sites will have a stirctly enforced 11.30pm noise curfew, so once the festival music is over each day at 11pm and everyone has had time to return to their tent, caravan, motor home, etc, the security will politely ensure that the quiet/family camp sites are kept quiet, so the little ones (and adults) can get some sleep! CAN I BRING FOOD & DRINK ON TO THE MUSIC SITE IF I AM CAMPING? Expand You may bring food and drink to the festival for your own personal consumption within the designated camping areas only. Personal picnics can be taken into the main festival site upon arrival only (takeaways cannot be brought in or delivered to the music site) with water or soft drinks in sealed and previously unopened plastic bottles (one 500 ml bottle per person). Free drinking water will be provided so you can bring in an empty reusable plastic or aluminium bottle for refills. No alcohol is allowed onto the main site due to our licensing conditions. No metal or glass utensils or cool boxes (for safety reasons) are allowed in to the music site. There will also be cooked breakfast available from some of the food traders every morning if you don’t have the stomach to make a fry up after the night before! Please note, for your own safety, you are not permitted to bring glass onto any part of the festival site. CAN I BRING A BBQ/FIRE/STOVE? Expand We want people to enjoy their time at Wannasee, to the fullest, and that means great camping facilities, but we must balance this against safety requirements and good practice. To that end, our advice on BBQs, Camping Stoves and Fires is set out below: Open fires are permitted only in fireproof containers clearly raised from the ground (fire pits etc) and should only be used when supervised by persons sober and sensible. BBQs are permitted only when clearly raised from the ground (fire pits etc) and should only be used when supervised by persons sober and sensible. Camping Stoves are permitted, and we wholeheartedly encourage people to use either solid or liquid fuelled options which are not only much safer but more environmentally friendly too. If you use a gas canister supplied stove (butane etc) please ensure that you bring only the minimum amount of gas required for your stay and both always use and store these items appropriately. All fires / stoves must always be used an appropriate distance from any tents. At least 1m is essential and over 2m for any form of open fire or BBQ. Security will prevent any improper use of fires, BBQs or stoves and person who fail to follow these basic safety steps risk their items being seized and/or being ejected from the Festival. Please enjoy, but do so sensibly and safely, thank you. WHAT TIME DO WE HAVE TO BE DEPARTED BY? Expand We know there is a chance that you may want a bit of a lie in after a hard day or two partying, so you can stay on site until 3.00pm on the Monday. CAN I PARK NEXT TO MY TENT? Expand For safety, to eliminate any risk of a car being driven over a tent, you can park your cars next to your caravan but if camping in a tent, your car will be parked very close by in the nearest secure parking area in the same camp site, and you can drop your gear off first at your camping pitch before parking up, so there are no long walks and humping of equipment at this fest! All we will ask is that you keep out of the emergency vehicle access lanes that will be marked out. WHAT FACILITIES WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE CAMPSITE? Expand The campsites will each have 24 hour security, floodlights, portable toilet blocks manned by stewards 24/7, access to the main showers block and fresh water available. A cleaning team will be on hand throughout the weekend to keep the toilets and showers nice and clean.
