Earliest entry for weekend ticket holders is the Thursday 19 August 2021 at 2pm. Gates to the car parks open at 12noon. We are asking that no-one exits (unless in an emergency) before 5pm on the Thursday to help us with the traffic entering site – this helped speed up the entry previously. Gates open at 9am on Friday morning and 10am on Saturday & Sunday. The gates close strictly for entry at 9.00pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night and at 3pm on Sunday. There is no entry or re-entry allowed after those times.

We plan for festival buses to run from Exeter to Escot and between Feniton and Escot on Thursday, Friday and Monday. There is also a FREE shuttle bus from Feniton Station to the pedestrian gate (RED GATE) running from Thursday to Monday – it runs on a loop so just wait for it at the station, it will be clearly marked for the festival. Confirmed timetables will be published on the website as soon as they’re available.
Q Do I need a parking pass for a motorbike?
Yes, you need to buy a car parking pass which is a routing sticker to help us guide you off the main road and parked. We have hard standing for motorbikes.
Q Is there a specific family camping field?
Redwoods Camping is designated for family camping. It is the first camping field on your right as you come over the bridge out of the arenas. Depending on where you park, the campsites are between 5 and 15 mins walk from the car parks. Beautiful Days is a family festival though so all of the camping fields have families camped in them.
Q Can I park my car next to my tent or drive to the campsite to unload?
No cars are allowed in the campsites or in the campervan fields before, during or after the festival. The car park is about a 10 minute walk from the festival arenas. There are two campsites as you come out of the car parks (Redwoods and Barleyfields camping) and then Arena Camping is adjacent to the Main Arena and is accessed by walking through the festival site.

Tents are not allowed in the campervan field but small awnings are permitted. The width of any campervan with awning and a walkway to the next plot should not exceed 4 metres.
Q Can I bring a trailer tent/folding caravan?
Yes but you would need to buy a caravan pass. Trailer Tents are not allowed in the campervan fields – particularly the cars. The campervan fields are for live-in vehicles only.
Q What does the caravan pass get me? Do I need a car pass as well?
The caravan pass covers a car towing a caravan which can be parked in the pitch – you do not need to buy a car pass as well. A van towing a caravan is permitted but only if the van is used for storage not sleeping in. If you also want to put people in it for sleeping you will need to buy a campervan pass as well and we will move it into the Campervan fields.
Q Can we hire any accommodation on site?

Q Can I bring my caravan?
We have a limited number of caravan pitches – they are sold out for 2021. A Caravan Pass covers the caravan AND your car/towing vehicle.
Q Are we allowed BBQs?
You can bring small disposable BBQs as long as they are raised off the ground so you dont damage the land. And obviously please dont use them in tents and dont leave them unattended.
