Tell me a bit more about the Wannasee Festival

Affordable

Wannasee Festival weekend is the perfect way to enjoy a live music stadium experience, non-stop hits, from start to finish, and fantastic live music at affordable prices. You can come as a day visitor or for the full weekend and camping facilities are available if you want to stay.

Parking is FREE & will be available at a secure manned area on the main site only a minute’s walk from the festival site.

A free return shuttle bus will be available on both Saturday & Sunday, picking up in and around Penrith and the surrounding areas, including Carleton, starting before the festival opens each day and running continuously back and forth between Penrith and the festival site, until after it closes each night. Pick up locations and exact times will be confirmed at a later date.

Great Views

With great views of the stage from all areas of the picturesque festival site and, with plenty of room for those who prefer to sit, rather than stand, you are welcome to bring in blankets, folding chairs, picnic boxes, etc, if you choose. Picnic food and water or soft drinks in sealed plastic bottles for young children can be brought into the stadium.

Is the Wannasee Festival family friendly?

Certainly! Wannasee is a family friendly event and children of all ages are welcome. Under 14s are free but must be accompanied by a ticket holding adult and there's a Family Zone area containing a number of free kids’ attractions, rides and face painting.

Is it true there's a free bus for day visitors?

Absolutely! If you’re a day visitor and don’t want to drive there, why not take advantage of our free shuttle bus to and from the festival.

A free return shuttle bus will be available on both Saturday & Sunday, picking up in and around Penrith and the surrounding areas, including Carleton, starting before the festival opens each day and running continuously back and forth between Penrith and the festival site, until after it closes each night. Pick up locations and exact times will be confirmed at a later date.

Where can I park?

We have free secure car parks, clearly signposted, all within close walking distance of the stadium. Car parks open from 4pm on Friday and 11am on Saturday and Sunday. Click on the image for full size image.

What about camping?

Secure camping facilities are located only two minutes’ walk from the festival site. You can pitch up, and park right next to your tent or caravan, relax, and enjoy a whole weekend of brilliant live music, right on your doorstep!

You can bring a tent, camper van, motorhome or caravan, with toilets, showers and drinking water available.

Campsite access is from 10am on Friday until 2pm on Monday. Camping ticket prices are on our Tickets Page and include free parking for the duration of your stay. You can camp for one, two or three nights stay. Friday night camping is free to you if you purchase a Saturday or Weekend ticket.  Children have to pay for camping but at a reduced rate.

Can I get to drink at the Festival?

Yes! Wannasee will be running our own bar in partnership with Heineken enabling us to offer very competitive drink prices that will not make a big hole in your wallet!

We will be offering a good selection of draught lagers, ciders and beers plus some real ales. To speed service up we will also have a can only bar.

All our spirits will be recognised premium brands, and we will also be serving house cocktails, shots, and a range of soft drinks.

We are fully licensed and there will be a wide range of food and drink available throughout the weekend, all at very competitive prices. 

We operate a challenge 21 policy at the festival, so please bring a recognised form of ID if you are lucky enough to look that young.

THE IMPORTANT BIT….when is the bar open?

We knew you'd ask that!

The bar will open on Friday @ 5.30pm, Saturday & Sunday @ 11.30am. Each night the shutters will come down at 11.15pm.

Cashless Bar

We use a token system to speed up service. No cash is handed over at the bar. You simply pay for your drinks in tokens. Tokens can only be used at the bars and not at the other vendors (food/retail) on site. The tokens are non-refundable so please make sure you don’t over buy. There will be a token tent where you can exchange your cash or make a card payment for tokens.

I’M HUNGRY….what’s to eat?

There will be a fine selection of food stalls bringing you a great variety of World cuisine that makes up the wonderful British staple diet, such as pizza, pies, burgers, hot dogs, chips, curries, noodles, breakfasts (for campers), chocolate, ice cream, doughnuts, sweets, milkshakes and much more. Seriously though, we will have a varied selection of cuisines available at affordable prices.

Not all the food traders can guarantee to cater for all special dietary requirements, lifestyle choices (vegan etc), or those with allergies or food intolerances. Please ask the individual food traders for information.

What are the opening times?

The main gate will open at 5.30pm on Friday night & 11.30 am on both Sat & Sun.

The event will finish approximately 10.45 every evening with the main gates closing at 11.30pm.

Is there disabled access?

Disabled parking is available in the main car park but you will need to be in possession of an official valid blue disabled parking badge.

The festival has full disabled access and a viewing section for our disabled patrons. If you have any special requirements, please do not hesitate to email us as at info@wannaseefestival.com and we will be happy to help.

Is the Wannasee Festival Green?

YES! We're going green and reducing our carbon footprint. In 2016 all our drinks will be served in a hard plastic Wannasee drinking vessel, which make great souvenirs to keep.

All we ask is that you pay £1 for your plastic glass and keep it with you. If you need a clean one when you order another drink, then you can exchange your old one at the bar. If you don’t want to keep your glass simply return it to the bar and your £1 will be refunded. This will enable us to keep litter to a minimum and reduce rubbish that requires disposing.
