Glas-Denbury Family Camping 

Glas-Denbury camping is run as a family campsite. It is suitable for all with plenty of toilets, kept clean and fully supplied and there is access to mains water and a waste water point.  The site is a “quiet site” overnight and we have stewards and security in the campsite 24 hours a day.  Please note we do not have electric hook ups or showers and please be aware the ground can be a little bumpy and uneven so sensible footwear advised! Camper vans are located in the same fields, in a seperate area from the tents for safety reasons.  The campsite opens at 2pm on the Friday (Please do not arrive any earlier as you will be turned away) Please do read the camping info below before you arrive which gives you all the info you need. If you have any queries or need any further information you cannot find on here just email us anytime on glasdenbury@gmail.com.

TICKETS

To gain access to the camping fields, whether with your own tents/camper vans/caravans or to access the glamping area if you have booked a lotus bell tent or yurt, you must hold a festival “weekend with camping ticket”.  All tickets are non refundable.

TENTS

If you are bringing your own tent, please note that no cars are allowed into the camping fields to unload.  The car park is next door to the camping field so you will just have a short walk with your tent and camping gear through to the campsite. Please bear this in mind though when packing! If you can put a wheelbarrow or trolley in then do!

GROUPS

If you are camping as a group sadly we cannot hold spaces for you but suggest you all arrive together where possible to ensure you can pitch together.  Or send someone ahead to pitch!

Please pitch responsibly taking up only the room you really need.  Please also note that tents cannot be pitched in the same area as camper vans, although they are in the same field. 

GAZEBOS

We do not allow gazebos purely because if everyone brought a gazebo as well as their tents we would all end up rather crammed in which is something we wish to avoid.  The weather is looking great for this year so sitting out under the stars will be a joy thankfully!

BBQs/FIREPITS

No BBQs or FIREPITS/OPEN FIRES allowed on site for safety reasons.

CAMPER VANS

We have a limited number of pitches for standard size (max 7m length) Camper Vans/Caravans. Please ensure you purchase a camper van pass for the vehicle together with your weekend festival with camping ticket as both must be shown on arrival to gain entry.  The camper vans are all pitched within an area of the camping fields (separate from the main tent area) and we allow one SMALL tent to be pitched BEHIND a camper van. We also allow small manufacturers awnings to be used. No BBQs or gazebos. If your van is over 7m in length you will need to purchase 2 camper van passes to gain entry.  Please also note there are no electric hook ups or waste disposal/chemical toilet points.

ACCESSIBILITY

We have a dedicated Accessible camping area within the family camping fields, near to the main entrance/exit and accessible toilets. We have stewards and crew on site to assist you into the camping fields from your car/vehicle. Please email us on glasdenbury@gmail.com for more info.

ALCOHOL

We allow a small amount of alcohol into the campsite owever no alcohol is allowed into the festival arena

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)  No spirits or hard liquor.

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 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 as well as portable gas stoves that can be used off of the ground.

WATER

Access to mains water can be found on the campsite as well as in the festival arena. Please bring your own reusable water bottles to be refilled. Please note these must be empty on arrival and may be checked by security at any time.

NO GLASS

No glass is permitted on site so please do not bring liquids in glass bottles under any circumstances. 

WASTE

We are passionate about reducing our footprint on the land and reducing waste at the festival so we ask that you take as much, if not ALL your waste home with you.  We can supply you with bin bags if you forget yours.  Please be extra careful with bottle tops, cigarette butts, plastic etc and ensure your pitch is rubbish free when you leave.  Please do not leave broken tents/chairs/beds/airbeds with us to dispose of as this incurs costs and one day these costs may impact on running costs of the festival. If something gets broken that you brought with you, please take it home to dispose of?

 RESTRICTED ITEMS

The following are not allowed into the campsite or festival arena;

Dogs and other animals (see below) / Drones / Glass – for obvious safety reasons / Stereo systems or amplified music / Illegal substances / Portable laser equipment and pens / Unauthorised professional film or video equipment / Audio recorders / Air Horns / Fireworks, flares or Chinese Lanterns / Any item which may reasonably be considered for use as a weapon / Open Fires / Disposable BBQs & Firepits/ Nitrous Oxide / Petrol Burners / Harmful Aerosols (of course we do allow Gas Aerosols for portable stoves used off the ground and deodrants)

 DOGS

We are major animal lovers but we are afraid that Dogs or other animals are NOT permitted on the festival site at all (guide dogs are permitted only with prior authorisation from GD) Please DO NOT leave your dogs in cars on site – if an animal is found to be in a car the police will be called if security cannot retrieve the animal themselves.

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 sun’s 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 assist you with any concerns you may have.
