Is there anywhere to lock my bike securely?

There is a secure compound where you can you lock your bike. You must bring your own bike lock. The racking will be scaffolding poles which the saddle will hook onto, so the lock will need to be bigger than a mini D-Lock. The compounds will have 24 hour security, however please note all belongings are left at your own risk.

Should I bring my email confirmation?

Whilst we will have a list of names on the door of people who’ve booked tickets, bringing your email confirmation with you will speed up the entry process. Please also bring a form of identity. Entry wristbands will be issued on arrival at the festival.

Will tickets be posted to my address?

Tickets will not be posted, and you will collect an entry wristband on arrival at the festival.

What happens if I haven’t received or have lost my confirmation email?

Your confirmation email might have been sent to your spam folder, so check there first. If you can’t find it we will have a list of ticket holders at the entrance.

I’m arriving separately to the person who has the tickets. How will I get in?

You will need to know the name of the person who booked the tickets and we will issue you with an entry wristband.

We are coming in a campervan but our friends aren’t, can we camp next to them?

Unfortunately this is not possible as the campervan/caravan/trailer tent field is separate from the tent camping field. If you have a small tent you wish to pitch next to your caravan/campervan/trailer tent you can, however this must be yours and not a friends. Tents cannot exceed 4m square. Due to the size of Rapha Tempest, we are unable to provide any electric hook up.

Are there showers in the pitch your own tent area?

Yes, there will be shower blocks available.
