The SouthFEST 2024 ticket allows you to camp all weekend in our campsite. When you arrive, follow the signs through to the campsite, pick a field and pitch your tent. All the fields are named after colours so it’s easy to find your way back to your tent at the end of the night.

The Campsite opens on Thursday 15th August 2024 and closes at 2pm on Monday 19th August 2024. Opening times are subject to health and safety inspections and we work hard to open gates on time, but please bear with us if there are any delays. The Car Park gates open from 8am on Thursday 15th August. Regular camping is freely available to everyone with a weekend festival ticket, no reservations required. The options below and in the Glamping page are optional extras that need booking or reserving.

There will be Stewards and Security to help you if you have any questions.

There are loos and drinking water in the Campsite. You can purchase access to our POSH WASH to access our luxury loos and showers throughout the weekend.


The Family Campsite offers a quieter camping area for you to enjoy safe in the knowledge you’re camping among other family groups. As with Respect this year we’ll be asking all of you to agree to take your tent and all belongings with you when you leave.

Family Camping is very popular at the festival and our space is limited, so please read the following instructions carefully before you book.

A family group is considered to be 1 or more responsible adults looking to camp together with children. This may include parents, other family members or friends who are coming along to assist with childcare. Each booking must include children. For the sake of everyone’s needs, please don’t abuse this.

Family has a small fee as we are providing you with private family camping showers; we can only accept bookings of up to a maximum of 8 tickets. Everyone coming along needs to have a separate entry ticket in their own name, and we can only accept a maximum of one tent per booking. So for instance, a booking of two people needs a ticket in each of their names and then they can bring along one tent, for which you will be asked to confirm the size, which will then be printed on the tickets. A booking for five people needs five tickets, one in each of their names and then requires selection of the size of the tent they are bringing and so on. Please only bring a tent for the size of your party. No ten-man tents for two people please..

Duplicate bookings cause a huge amount of admin, as well as depriving others from accessing the field. Any bookings that are deemed to be duplicates, or have a selection of the same names in, will not be honoured and will automatically be deleted.

Due to the high demand for space, we cannot accommodate gazebos under any circumstances, so if you bring one, you will be asked to take it down or it will be removed by us.

You need to read and agree to our terms and conditions for Family Camping which are detailed on our booking page.

Every adult camping with us needs a ticket in their own name and will need to provide photographic ID at the point of check in with us. This needs to be genuine as we have had issues previously. There are several mobile safe options within the festival which are provided by third parties for minimum cost.

To be fair to everyone and to prevent any attempted selling of space, as well as prevent bookings where a reservation is made early and then names changed prior to the event, you will be only able to change names on individual entry tickets if you pay an admin fee of £20 (plus VAT and fees) for each named ticket. We cannot accept any name changes after the 14th May 2023.

Similarly, we also cannot change all names in a booking.

You need to have SouthFEST Weekend tickets for every one in the party coming along before booking space in Family Camping.

Campervan Area

There is a separate area for campervans in the Campsite - please note NO CARAVANS are allowed! An additional tent or awning is fine as long as it all fits into a 7m x 7m plot.

You need to buy a Weekend Ticket for each member of your party to access the Festival as well as a Campervan pass to park your vehicle in this area, this is now an add-on for your main weekend ticket. Both of these must have been purchased in advance.
