Frequently Asked questions

Our Early Bird tickets are now sold out.

We’re so happy to see so many so excited to celebrate our 30th anniversary with us. We’ve been asked a few questions, which we thought sharing the answers with you might help.

We will keep updating our frequently asked questions over the next year so do keep checking back in on here if you have a burning question.

How far is the festival from Llandeilo?
The main festival field and campsite will be on a grass field which is part of the National Trust Dinefwr. This is located 1 mile away from the main town centre of Llandeilo and the nearest train station is Llandeilo which 1.5 miles away.
More information about how to get to the festival is located on our How to get to the festival page.
Will there be local transport to take me from Llandeilo to the festival?
Unfortunately we are unable to provide a local shuttle bus to help transport local day ticket holders and those staying in Llandeilo to the festival site. The festival site is about 1 mile walk from the town of Llandeilo. There is a local Taxi service that can help with transport if you need a vehicle.
Llandeilo Taxi – 01558 822020

Can I camp with a Day Ticket?
Yes you can, but you must purchase a campsite ticket.

Can I pay to stay at the campsite on the day?
We have limited space at the campsite and live-in vehicle site, and we expect these spaces to sell out quite soon.

When can I stay from?
The campsite will open from Friday 7 July at 11am and will close on Monday 10 July at 11am.
The festival programme of events doesn’t start on Friday until 6pm.

Do you offer a car share scheme?
We don’t as such but we encouraging people to join our Facebook Group and to post in there if you are able to share or need a lift.

Is there any mains connections for the live-in vehicle site?
No. You need to be self-sufficient. We will have a dedicated toilets and shower area in both campsite and live-in vehicle site.

Can I charge my phone at the festival?
If you are camping with us we will have some power points at the campsite with our campsite volunteers. There are a limited number of points and will be first come first served.

Can I drive my car onto the campsite or festival field?
For the health and safety of everyone staying on the campsite we do not allow vehicles onto the site. We are very grateful to be allowed the very rare opportunity to camp on the NT Dinefwr estate however our campsite field is part of a working farm and as such has only a small single file track. The safety of our customers is paramount which is why we do not allow vehicles onto the campsite. However, there is a car park right next to the entrance of the festival and it’s a 5 minute walk from the festival site entrance to the campsite.

We will have heavier duty trollies available and accessibility buggies on site.

I might need extra support getting around the festival site. What can I do?
If you require further assistance, please contact our team on before the festival to let us know how we can support you during your visit.

What access provision is there for the festival site? I want to know more details on parking, camping and festival provisions?

While we are a small festival we want to ensure that our audiences have a good time and how we can support their festival experience. We have an Accessibility page on our website which we update, and has information written into the website, and a PDF version in Welsh and English, on what we can provide access wise and what we might not be able to do at the festival this year.
We also would like to know if you have any specific queries or want to let us know how we can help you so please do email us on to let us know more details.
