Booking Info: Campervan FAQ
We’re excited to have you pulling up your campervans for a solstice weekend of art and adventure by the sea. Before you pack up and ship out to the coast, here are a few important pieces of information you need to know.
This page contains important information about your stay – please make sure to read it thoroughly before you head for the beach.
We’re changing up our timings on the beach this year with a new format that embraces the cycles of the sun:
12:00-21:30 First Light Day 1 on the beach
21:30-02:30 The party moves off the beach and into venues around Lowestoft with our ticketed Sundown Events
03:45-05:30 Dawn programme of music, performance and food takes place on the beach as the sun rises
10:00-16:00 First Light Day 2 on the beach
For those arriving on Friday, we’re throwing a special Friday Night Warmup Party at our festival home in East Point Pavilion, a 20 minute walk along the seafront from the campervan site.
Your clifftop campsite will be accessible via All Saint Car Park, NR33 0JN. There’ll be plenty of signage and volunteers to point you in the right direction from there. The campsite will be open to Friday & Saturday Campers from 18:00 on Friday 16th June, and from 10:00 on Saturday 17th June for Saturday Campers. This is campervan life festival style – you won’t have allocated spots, but we ask that you be considerate of space and other campers
When you arrive, please check in with the Campsite Manager at reception (which will be signposted). They’ll make sure you have everything you need for a lovely stay!
Due to our limited space, we can only welcome campervans which are self-contained. If your campervan requires a car to pull it, you’ll need to find a public spot outside the campsite to park your car over your stay. Additional tents around your campervan will also not be allowed. If you have any questions about whether your campervan will be permitted, please email email@example.com.
During your stay, we invite you to embrace the festival spirit and decorate your campervans. We want to see flags, garlands and bold colours
Friday Travel Information
For those joining us on Friday evening, please note that due to ongoing Lowestoft Flood Protection roadworks, the Lowestoft Bascule Bridge connecting the North and South of the town will be closed overnight between 8pm Friday and 6am Saturday.
Those arriving to the campsite from the north of the town after 8pm on Friday by car will have to divert through Oulton Broad, which may take extra time. The bridge will be open to all traffic across the rest of the festival weekend.
What to pack?
Have you got everything you need? Here’s a short list of things you might want to bring:
– Sleeping bag, pillows and mats
– Warm clothes – it gets chilly at night next to the sea, trust us!
– Drinking water bottle
– Rubbish bags
– Spare toilet roll
– Tooth brush and tooth paste!
Although there will be security on site at all times belongings are left at your own risk and best to leave valuables at home.
Also – please leave dogs at home! They are not allowed on most of the festival site due to summer season beach rules and it just wouldn’t be fun for them.
We would like the Campervan area to be an enjoyable space for everyone, which unfortunately means a few rules…
1. No fires, BBQs, fireworks or Chinese lanterns.
2. No smoking please
3. No glass please
4. If you have a gas stove or lamp please make sure this is used and switched off properly and stored safely away from your and other people’s vans.
This is wild beach festival camping – not glamping! There will be toilets and drinking water available, however there will not be showers or washing facilities. There is no electrical hookup, nor water dumping facilities (we ask that you take everything with you!).
In the unlikely case of an evacuation of the campsite an alarm will sound. Please follow the instructions of the campsite manager and/or security, leave the campsite immediately and head to the field adjacent to Pakefield Road car park.
If you have access requirements please make yourself known to the campsite manager so they can assist you in the event of evacuation.
The wild camping code: leave no trace. This is the crucial rule of wild camping and ideally you will create minimum impact on your desired area so it still remains natural and wild. Better still, you should leave the site so no one can tell you’ve even been there. Litter – this goes without saying, but ensure you collect all your rubbish and take it with you. Walk the site slowly before leaving to check that nothing is missed. Leave the site as you found it – don’t leave holes, fire damage, litter, and take care not to damage vegetation.. The campervan site must be clear by 18:00 on Sunday afternoon.
