You can see all our info on accessibility at Wilderness here. Alternatively, if you have any questions regarding accessibility at Wilderness, please email info@wildernessfestival.com.

Can I visit my friends in other campsites?

Each campsite has it’s own wristband for safety purposes, so if you want to meet up with friends you can find them in the main arena where all the fun is anyway.

I’d like to come to the festival but not camp – can I do this?

If camping’s not your thing that’s absolutely fine. Simply book a non-camping ticket and use your festival wristband to come and go from the festival within our gate opening times (released nearer to the festival).

Do you have a limit on tent size?

Our General, Quiet and Family Campsites are the ones where you can bring your own tent and camp. There are no designated pitches, you just pick a spot and set up. While we do not have a restriction on tent size, to make sure everyone has a fair amount of space we do not allow trailer tents or gazebos.

Who are your approved ticket vendors?

Our official ticket vendor is Ticketmaster. Please note when you book a ticket through them, you should contact them with any queries.

Can I bring my own tent and stay in Boutique or Meadow Camping?

No, to stay in either our Boutique or Meadow campsites you must book Boutique or Meadow Accommodation on top of your general admission festival ticket. If you want to bring your own tent you can choose to stay in General, Family, Quiet or Live-In Vehicle Camping (provided you’ve booked a Live-In Vehicle Pass – 1 per 6x7m pitch).
