At music festivals the majority of people stand to watch the acts on the main stage (particularly as the day progresses). You're more than welcome to bring blankets, rugs or collapsible single-seating camping chairs for the grassy areas around the perimeter of the site. Please do not bring umbrellas to site. The VIP area is positioned so as not to be too close to the stage to be noisy, but provides a good view of the stage also. If there are particular acts that you would like to see closer to the stage, the VIP area can be used as a base throughout - simply come and go as you please and show your wristband to staff at the VIP entrance.
Please do not place blankets, rugs, or collapsible furniture at the front near the main stage, as this area will be very busy, and again, complaints cannot be upheld if you have placed rugs, blankets, or collapsible furniture in an area we have warned would be busy with people standing,watching, or dancing. You will be asked to remove any of these items by our security team if they are seen near the main stage. There will be limited seating around some of the food and drinks areas also.
