Thanks for all your patience regarding the regulations around COVID. We appreciate that everyone wants to get back to having a good time safely, and we aim to help you do that. If we all do our bit at the gate, the rest of the festival will be yours to enjoy as you wish. We will be following the guidance many other national festivals have put in place and thank you all in advance for your continued support and patience. It’s a long post, so please make sure you read till the end, and this information will also be on the website.

There will be 2 methods of making sure we are keeping you safe, you will be required to present evidence of either:

1) Double vaccination – You can access your NHS COVID Pass through the free NHS App on a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 status will be shown within the NHS App. Present this at the gate on entrance.

2) If you cannot, or wish not to do the above, you can take a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) before heading out to the festival. LFT self-testing kits are widely available and free of charge from your local pharmacy and online at Order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests –GOV.UK ( Once you’ve taken your test, please register it at -Report a COVID-19 rapid lateral flow test result –GOV.UK ( . Once you have received your NHS text message/email confirming a NEGATIVE result you may present this on the gate.

PLEASE DO NOT travel if you return a POSITIVE test or you are presenting COVID-related symptoms. A checklist of COVID symptoms can be found at Main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) -NHS (

Thanks to everyone in advance, and we will do everything we can to make sure your access to the festival is as smooth and speedy as always.

See you at the bar!
