Camping at Glas-Denbury

Glas-Denbury has 2 family camping fields, both on Fairfield Farm and both right by the festival arena which is in the middle of the countryside with views across the fields. Both fields operate a quiet policy and have plenty of toilets and mains water points. We also have a glamping area with yurts and bell tents for hire with dedicated toilets and the option to have power (see below for more info) and a camper van area for a limited number of standard size camper vans/caravans (please ensure you purchase a pass for your vehicle when you purchase your tickets) If your vehicle is not a standard length please contact us to confirm we can get through the gates! (Supplements may apply for larger vehicles) We allow awnings to be used on campers as long as they are of a reasonable size and don’t take up unnecessary room.

Please be aware that we are on a working farm site so the ground can be a little bumpy and at present we cannot offer electric hook up or waste disposal/chemical toilet points. 

On arrival please note no cars will be allowed onto the camping fields so you will need to park in the car park and carry your camping gear through to the site so bring a wheelbarrow or trolley…but do not panic! We have wonderful crew and stewards on site who will be there to help you if you need it.  You can either grab someone on the day or email us in advance if you have a particular need for help on arrival but please though do come prepared! Our advice is pack a wheelbarrow or trolley and pack light! (concentrate on good bedding and airbeds and a good light and you cant go too wrong!)  On departuer where possible we will allow cars in to the camping fields but please note this usually only happens from later in the day as the fields emty out and we can safely escort vehicles in whilst families are still on site.

Do bring a tent that is just big enough to accomodate the number of persons sleeping in it as we want to provide a camping field with room for people to stretch out and not be crammed in. Large tents sleeping 8/10 people are fine if they are going to accomodate that number of people.

Please ensure you 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 glasdenbury@gmail.com.

ALCOHOL & FOOD

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.

We allow a small amount of alcohol into the campsite but none into the festival arena.  Please though, do not bring excessive amounts of Alcohol into the campsite. Glas-Denbury is an independant festival 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 longevity 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!

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. Soft drinks and water may be brought in in unopened bottles only.

FOOD – Food maybe brought into the campsite but please no BBQs or firepits/open fires FIREPITS.

ACCESSIBILITY; Please email us on glasdenbury@gmail.com if you need any special assistance into the festival or go to the “about us page” for more info.  The campsite is for holders of “weekend with camping” tickets only. ROAR.

OPENING HOURS – The campsite opens at 2pm on Friday and closes on Sunday at 4pm.  Access to the festival arena is from 5pm on the Friday through to 0030 and then from early Saturday morning (for breakfast!) through to 0030.

PHONE CHARGING – We have a phone charging service in the arena located at the Information tent.  Please ensure you have your charger lead and that your phone is labelled and you are given a receipt. Do keep your receipt safe as we cannot hand your phone back without it. 

NO GLASS is allowed on site so please do not bring liquids in glass bottles.  We are passionate about reducing our footprint on the land and reducing waste at the festival so we recycle as much as possible – as we are located on a working farm 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.

NO DOGS or other animals are allowed on site (except guide dogs with prior authorisation) We love our animals but we sadly cannot have them on site due to health and safety restrictions regarding the farm. Please DO NOT leave your dogs in cars on site.

SELF CARE – Long waking hours, dancing and summer sun will make you thirsty. Please don’t forget to drink lots of water. Please know your limits with regards to alcohol and those of your friends and take care as alcohol can be lethal.  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 and wear hats – the whackier the better as we are at a festival after all! 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.  Event control supply earplugs free of charge if you need them and the first aid units on site are there to to assist you with any concerns you may have.
