The festival is within easy reach by public transport, bike or car at around 30 miles north of London and south west of Cambridge. We’re also close to Stansted airport.

We can’t wait to welcome you to the party.
Use the postcode SG11 1EE if you’re driving to the festival. As you approach the site, be careful of narrow surround roads and follow AA road signs to festival parking. Remember to book your car parking pass in advance too, one per vehicle. Don’t forget to offer your friends a lift! A pick up and drop off point will be assigned and available for use in the festival car park. Please follow the signs rather than take the exit for car park.
