Car parking information

Because of the rail strike, car parks are to open from 4pm on Tuesday night, allowing visitors to arrive ahead of time. It's important to note, however, that guests who do arrive the night before will only have access to toilets, and will be expected to stay in their cars until the festival begins.

Depending on the direction you're coming from, there are four main entrances for cars; drivers simply need to follow the P signs to get to the nearest car park, at which point stewards will be present to point you in the right direction and alleviate the traffic coming into the site.
