Info for Campers

About our Campsite

Our campsite is located at the top of St George’s Hill at Perranporth Airfield (Note- This is NOT the Anchor Barrow Campsite!). We have procured this unique location to provide affordable camping for our guests despite the festival being held at peak-summer in Cornwall, when the majority of local camp sites and other accommodation are fully booked or extremely expensive!

Our camp site is split into two sections; an area on grass for tents and a tarmac area adjacent to this for campervans. Please note that as the campervan area is situated on tarmac, it is not suitable for awnings which require soft ground for pegging.

Weekend Camping tickets are available which include camping and festival access in a single ticket. If you’re not sure whether you will be camping or decide later; you can purchase Camping Add-On tickets in our ticket shop. 

Opening hours

The campsite is open for arrivals from Thursday at 6pm. and we ask that you vacate by Monday at mid-day.

Our campsite is staffed 24/7, and you can arrive at any time including Friday, Saturday or Sunday at any time.

Arrival 

When you arrive in your vehicle, our campsite staff will ask you to show them your camping ticket. We recommend showing this on your phone if possible (no need to print your ticket!). If you’re camping, you will then be directed to park your vehicle in the campsite parking area. Campervans will be directed to the campervan area. You are then free to set up your tent and get comfortable before catching the shuttle bus to the festival site, where you will need to show your tickets to collect your green campsite wristband. You will not be allowed to re-enter the campsite without your camping wristband.

Please note that no vehicles will be permitted directly in the camping area. The camping car park is located close by, and help is on hand to help you carry your bags…

We will have a team of very strong and helpful scouts with trolleys help you transport your stuff from your vehicle to your pitching spot. These scouts are raising money for a good cause – please tip generously!

 

Facilities

Our campsite provides:

  • Parking for all campers and campervans. A separate car parking area is available for those with tents; whilst campervans will be directed to our campervan / motorhome area. 
  • Shuttle buses running continuously throughout the day to and from the Perranporth Beach carpark. The festival is a 600m walk across the beach from the drop-off / pick-up location. 
  • Showers, toilets & clean running water.
  • 24 hour security
  • Fire safety.
  • Vendors selling breakfast, hot drinks and snacks in the morning and evening

Please note:

  • Our campsite does not provide electrical hook-up or foulage disposal and is suitable for self-contained campervans only. 
  • Cooking nearby tents is a fire hazard and is permitted. There will be a designated cooking area for open fires/barbecues/stoves. 

Shuttle Bus Donations

In our mission towards a sustainable and climate-friendly festival, we are aware of the environmental impact of our shuttle buses. Unfortunatley there is no safe walking route from the festival site to the camp site, and electric buses are not yet available to us down here in Cornwall. Instead, we will be asking for a £2 donation per round-trip on our shuttle bus which can be paid when boarding the bus from the campsite. 50% of your donation will go towards our sustainability fund, where we are raising money to fund electric buses and other sustainable innovations at future events. The other 50% of your donation will go to charities such as Surfers Against Sewage to help offset the impact of our event.

Return trips from the beach to the campsite are free and you do not need a ticket. 

Waste

Bins and fresh drinking water will be provided at the camp site. Please bring a re-usable bottle with you to minimise the use of single-use plastics. Our water is fresh and delicious! 

Glamping

Take it easy after a hard day on the beach in one of the cosy 2-4 man glamping shire huts provided by Shire Huts.

Help is at hand!

We will have a group of very helpful scouts at our campsite equipped with trolleys to help you carry your bags & tents from your vehicles and get comfortable.

The scouts are raising money for an upcoming trip - please bring some change and dontate generously!
