Information on parking, train, bus travel, & festival shuttles

Travel & Parking


We advise all customers to either walk or cycle to the festival site, there will be railings to secure bicycles these will be in well-lit areas outside of the arena space. For those of you who prefer to travel by car, we advise car-share and to park away from the immediate area of Eastville and walk as this is a heavily residential area.
