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 water and somewhere to leave your waste water. The site is operated as a “quiet site” from midnight to 8am so please respect that and help us ensure everyone has a good nights sleep! We have stewards, security and access to the first aid team 24 hours a day. Please note we do not have electric hook ups or showers and please be aware that the site is a working farm and therefore the ground can be a little bumpy and uneven so sensible footwear advised! The camper van area is located in the same field but 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 and there is nowhere to wait outside the festival) and closes at 4pm Sunday. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 – 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, but please do bear this in mind though when packing! If you can put a wheelbarrow or trolley in the car then do! There will be crew on hand to help where possible but of course we cannot help everyone all at the same time.
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!)
HOW BIG ARE THE PITCHES? – Pitches are not marked out so we ask that you 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.
NO GAZEBOS – if everyone brought a gazebo as well as their tents we would fast run out of room and space around each tent would be far less than at present. This is something we wish to avoid.
NO BBQs/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 field (separate from where the tents will be) and with advice from the Fire Service, we allow one SMALL pup tent to be pitched BEHIND each camper van. We also allow small manufacturers awnings to be used. No BBQs, Firepits 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. Please do not bring Glass on site – this is a working farm.
ACCESSIBLE CAMPING- We have a dedicated area within the camping field, close to the main entrance/exit and accessible toilets. We have stewards and crew on site to assist you into the camping field from your car/vehicle. Please email us on email@example.com to book a space and for more info.
ALCOHOL – We allow a maximum amount of alcohol into the campsite as below; (please note 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 must be used off of the ground.
WATER – Water points are located across 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 into the arena and campsite and may be checked by security at any time.
NO GLASS – No glass is permitted on site so please do not bring in anything in glass under any circumstances.
WASTE – NO SINGLE USE PLASTIC. NO Plastic bottles, straws, bags, plates, cutlery etc. 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 and 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;
Plastic Water bottles, straws, bags, cutlery and plates / 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.
SAFETY WHEN CAMPING – Most of us will trip over a guy line or tent peg at least once in our lives, but it’s worth reminding everyone to look out for them, especially when returning to a tent in the dark! Perhaps think about tying glow in the dark ribbon to your pegs or place solar lighting around the base? Please also don;t push tent pegs into the ground with your foot! Too many puncture wounds are caused this way! If you have steps to your camper van then please ensure they are secured to the ground!
FIRST AID – We have a first aid team and ambulance on site 24 hours a day.
