Camping at Glas-Denbury
Glas-Denbury has 2 camping fields both on Fairfield Farm, right by the festival arena – just a couple of minutes walk away. The site is in the middle of the countryside with views across the fields. One of our fields is for general camping and the further field is for quieter family camping, although we do operate a quiet policy across the whole campsite. There are plenty of toilets and mains water taps on the camping field and a mains water point in each field. Please note this is a farm site so the ground can be a little bumpy and we do not offer electric hook up or waste disposal/chemical toilet points for campervans or caravans. Please also note no cars are allowed onto the camping fields so you will need to park in the car park and carry your camping gear through to the site – bring a wheelbarrow or trolley. We have crew and stewards on site who will help you and also we are thrilled that a team from Kingskerswell Navigators will be on site to assist you as well where you need it. Please do come prepared though – bring wheelbarrows, trolleys and pack light!
Camper Vans and caravans are welcome although do check with us if your vehicle is large – we are a farm site so want to make sure you will get through the gates! There is a dedicated area for these and tents are not allowed to be pitched next to them. Cars must also be moved into the car park. We will also allow awnings to be used on campers as long as they are of a reasonable size and don’t take up unnecessary room – we need to be fair to all!
Please scroll down to read the camping terms and conditions of entry before booking a camping ticket – hopefully it will answer all your questions and if not please feel free to email us anytime on email@example.com.

LOCATION AND ACCESSIBILITY; The car park is located right next to the camping fields. No cars are allowed into the camping fields so please make sure you bring trolleys or wheelbarrows to assist you in moving your belongings from car to pitch. We do have a team dedicated to helping you from car to campsite so on arrival please do go find them if you need assistance! Please remember that Fairfield Farm is a working dairy farm so the land may be uneven in places and grass a little harder than your lawn at home! Suitable footwear advised! Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any special assistance into the festival or go to the “about us page” for more info.

WASTE – NO GLASS allowed on site – please do not bring in glass bottles. They present a clear danger both to yourselves, other people and the animals that live on this site. We are passionate about reducing our footprint on the land and reducing waste at the festival so we recycle as much as possible. This is a working farm site it is vital that as little remains behind as possible so please take home all your rubbish? We can supply you with bin bags if need be from the steward points or perhaps pack a few to make your recycling easy on your pitch? Please be extra careful with bottle tops, cigarette butts, plastic etc and ensure your pitch is rubbish free when you leave?
ANIMALS; NO DOGS or other animals are allowed on site due to this being a working farm. We love our animals but we sadly cannot have them on site due to health and saftey restrictions regarding the farm.
SELF CARE – Long waking hours, dancing and summer sun will make you thirsty. Please don’t forget to drink lots of water! Drinking water is available at all bars. Please know your limits and take care – alcohol can be lethal; know your limits and those of your friends. Remember to wash your hands as infection can spread quickly on a festival site – especially before eating. Remember to bring and use sun cream – even with clouds the suns harmful rays can get to your skin. Wear hats – the whackier the better! Protect your ears and wear ear protection if you are planning on getting up close to the speakers and remember babies and children’s ears are far more delicate so bring ear protection for them. The information desk will have earplus available foc if you need them and the first aid units on site are there to assist you with any concerns.
ALCOHOL & FOOD – Please do not bring excessive amounts of Alcohol. Glas-Denbury is an independant festvial run by a dedicated team of volunteers who are endeavouring to keep it going for you for years to come. It relies on the bar sales, catering pitches and trading pitches to do this and so to continue the magic we please encourage you to help the logevity of the festival by supporting the bars and food traders on site. We also have your well being at the forefront of everything, so please understand why we restrict the amount of alcohol you can bring into the campsite. We assure you that our bar prices are well below other event prices and in line with, if not below pub prices. However, we know from experience that you may need a little dutch courage to kick start your festival experience, or a little something to accompany a midnight feast in the small house when the bars are closed, so the guideline of alcohol amounts allows this!
Allowed into the campsite; Either 8 cans of beer, lager or cider per person OR 4 cans and 1 bottle of wine per person (decanted into a plastic bottle) Please no spirits or hard liquor.
Alcohol can only be brought in on first entry and this alcohol may only be consumed in the campsite. No alcohol will be allowed to be brought out of the campsite.
