Campsite Info

Campsite Facilities

Download’s campsite area is so much more than the place you can get some kip. As well as numerous campsite areas, you’ll gain access to The Village which is full of food and drink stalls, essential services, and the kind of entertainment you just won’t find anywhere else. The campsite is open 24 hours a day.

There will be toilets, showers and water available to you dotted around the campsite areas, just look at your map or nearby signs to guide you.

Quiet Camping

Quiet Camping is a separate field in the main camp site area, that gives people a break from the 24 hour party atmosphere of the standard camp sites.

It has a curfew of midnight, after which time music must be turned off, And no shouting please, though conversation at your tent is fine. It is meant to make it quieter, not completely silent. Sound from other camps may drift across, although being some distance away, this is less than if you were in the midst of standard camping.

Tickets for quiet camping are the same price as standard camping tickets and each ticket is valid for one person. This is the ideal campsite for families and younger festival goers.


NO GAS canisters or petrol fuelled cookers will be allowed anywhere on site. There will be no exception to this rule, anyone found using gas may be asked to leave site!

Alternatively please use one of the following: meth stoves including fuel, trangia stoves, solid fuel/Hexi stoves, gel stoves, green base camp cooker and firelighter stoves.

Please raise BBQ’s and camping stoves at least 30cms off the ground to avoid burning the site.

Open campfires are strictly prohibited.

Exceptions: Campervan/Caravans – If the gas is connected through a professionally installed/certified system then gas is permitted.
