Glas-Denbury has 2 camping fields, both on the same site as the festival and so just a minute or two walk to the arena. One field is for general camping and the further field is for quieter 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 and we do not offer electric hook up or waste disposal/chemical toilet points for campervans or caravans.
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 do read the information below before booking a camping ticket – hopefully it will answer all your questions and if not please feel free to email us anytime on firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year we have a limited number of “Yurts for Life’s” beautiful handmade, 18ft yurts available to hire with their own dedicated toilets. They sleep up to 8 unfurnished and with prices starting from £62.50 per person for the weekend why not treat yourselves? Furnished option also available so why not go for glamping glamour!
See below for more details!
ACCESS ; Only holders of “weekend with camping” tickets will be allowed into the campsite. Please note under 18s are admitted into the campsite at the discretion of stewards. We ask all under 18s are accompanied by a responsible adult. ID will be required. ROAR.
CAR PARK; 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. It is not far and there are stewards and crew who will help wherever possible. 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!
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. Sunday the arena is open for campers for breakfast and shop in the Butterfly Bazaar to grab those last minute bits!
CASH – we do not have cash machines on site and the bars do not take cards. Please ensure you have enough cash to last you the weekend. The nearest cash machines are located in Newton Abbot about 10 minutes drive away. Please be careful and aware when carrying large amounts of cash and don’t leave valuables in your tents unattended.
PHONE CHARGING – We have a phone charging service on site located at the Information tent. Please ensure you have your charger lead and that your phone is labelled and you are given a receipt. Keep your receipt safe as we cannot hand your phone back without it.
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.

Treat yourself and go Glamping in a beautiful Yurt at Glas-Denbury!
Boutique Camping at Glas-Denbury
A limited number of the beautiful Yurts made by “Yurts for Life” are now available to hire at this year’s festival. Treat yourself to a luxury accommodation experience. The yurts are pre pitched and located on the main camping field with their own toilets. Why not gather a group of friends of family and share the magical experience! From as little as £62.50 per person for 8 sharing an unfurnished yurt!
The stunning structure and spacious design of their delightful dome-shaped yurts comes from Kyrgyzstan. The yurts differ from Mongolian designs in the way the woodwork is steam bent to produce a curved, rounded roof shape that offers more headroom. It’s a little harder to produce the steam bent wooden ribs, trellis and wheel, but they think it is completely worth it so that you can move around comfortably inside your yurt.
What better way to put a roof over your head than to work with the wood that is found on your doorstep? It’s natural, it’s robust and Yurts for Life can work wonders with it, skilfully steam bending it into shape before sanding by hand and treating it with oils for a beautiful and long-lasting finish. Here in the West Country we have the good fortune of being able to source sustainable timber from nearby estates, ensuring that each yurt built goes from tree to dwelling within just a few miles.
In true British fashion, Yurts for Life build their yurts to stand up to the elements of our climate in style. Whilst the original Kyrgyz yurts were covered in felt, they cover theirs with a hard wearing cotton canvas that is fully waterproofed so you can relax knowing that you’ll stay perfectly dry inside! The canvas is rot resistant and fire retardant, too, so it shouldn’t matter what Mother Nature throws at you, your yurt will prevail!
Each 18ft yurt has a lockable wooden door, rush matting and a skylight so you can watch the stars at night. They can be hired unfurnished or furnished. Please note a “weekend ticket with camping” must be held to gain access to the campsite and therefore your yurt.
Unfurnished 18ft yurt including carpet and dedicated toilets – sleeping up to 8 persons; £500
Furnished 18ft yurt; Additional £30 per person to include wooden bed, mattress, linens, throws, duvets, 2 x pillows, bedside table, candle lantern, rugs, carpet, blanket box, mirror and hangers. Yurts fit a maximum 4 beds – either 2 doubles, 4 singles or 1 double and 2 singles.
