Ticket holders own alcohol is permitted in the campsite but cannot be taken into the arena. The bar in the arena is well stocked will all major brands and caters for all tastes.

We ask all ticket holders to take care around the entire site. Lower Drayton Farm is an active and working unit so heavy machinery maybe coming down the tracks, also because the festival is situated in a field you may find some of the areas of the ground uneven. We will light the main route from the arena but we cannot light the whole campsite to not disturb happy campers. So we recommend you bring a torch.

Star in Staffs competition is also running alongside the festival. The Competition is open to 12 to 18 year old musicians. Six finalists will compete for a place at the festival where they can perform live on Saturday 26th  the winner decided on the day by public vote the prize being  2 days of studio recording time and production of a CD from Phoenix Studio.  To nominate someone you know call Jon King on 07890 717815
