Below is a list of answers to the most common queries we receive. If your question is not answered below then please send us a message via the contact section and we’ll get back to you asap.

Will tickets be available on the day?

We expect to sell out of weekend tickets in advance again this year. This means that weekend tickets (and live in vehicle passes) won’t be available on site and non-ticket holders will be turned away. There will be a limited amount of day tickets available to purchase each day from the festival box office. These provide access to the main arena but not the campsites. Can I get a discounted ticket to come in for the last part of the day? No. All tickets are at full price regardless of when you arrive.

Are pets allowed?

Unfortunately not. No animals are permitted anywhere on site except for assistance dogs ONLY.

Assistance dogs are permitted to the event, but this must be an assistance dog that is recognised by one of the official charitable organisations as members of Assistance Dogs UK.

Please note, therapy / emotional support dogs or animals are not classed as assistance animals.

The Big Tribute reserves the right to turn away dogs at the gate who do not comply with this process or meet the requirements of an assistance animal.

Please note if you do need to bring your assistance dog with you, you must inform our team ahead of your visit on big.tribute@gmail.com so that they can help facilitate your entry at the festival.

Can I bring my own food and drink?

No glass bottles are permitted anywhere as the site is a working farm. You are not permitted to take your own alcohol into the main arena but food and soft drinks are allowed. Apart from glass and alcohol, there are no restrictions on food and drink in the campsites.

Can I take a chair into the main arena?

Yes, folding camping chairs are fine but please be aware that people may be stood up in front of you, especially if you try and take a seat nearer the front! Umbrellas and small sun shades are permitted as long as they do not restrict the view for other attendees. We do not allow gazebos or full size tents in the main arena.

Can we arrive on the Thursday night?

No, all campsites open from 8am on Friday 25th August 2023.

Can I bring a motorhome/caravan?

Yes, if you buy a live in vehicle pass (£35). These are per vehicle rather than the number of people using it. These are likely to sell out in advance this year. Only purpose built motorhomes, caravans and trailer tents will be allowed in the live in vehicle section. Vans /horseboxes/cars with mattresses etc. will not be admitted, even with a valid ticket.

Can I put a tent by my live-in vehicle?

Live in vehicle pitches are approximately 7m x 7m to allow room for an awning. If you want to pitch a tent there instead, as long as it fits in the pitch space, that’s fine.

Is there a family camping / quieter area?

Yes, we have a dedicated family camping field on the other side of the arena away from general camping. This is exclusively for festival goers that want to stay in a quieter area of the festival once the main arena closes at night. It is approximately 10minutes walk from the main arena entrance. As well as less noise than the general camping area, it also gets less crowded and provides a bit more space around your camp!

Can I bring my car on to the campsite?

No, cars have to be left on the car parking field next to the campsite for safety reasons.

What size tent can I bring?

Any domestic tent up to 12 person is permitted on the campsite

Can I bring a BBQ?

Disposable BBQs are NOT permitted at any time..

Used responsibly and kept raised off the ground, small portable gas BBQs and stoves are allowed on site.
This is subject to change based on weather conditions and guidance from the local Fire Authority.

Open fires (including fire bowls/baskets) are NOT permitted at any time.

Are there showers on the campsites?

Yes. These are open 7am – 12pm and 5pm -7pm each day.

Will there be plenty of toilets?

 Yes, we have loads of toilets in the main arena and campsites and they are serviced/cleaned every morning. The campsites also have a block of flushing loos.

Can I get a list of who is playing when?

Stage times will be updated on the website and on social media in the week leading up to the festival. Each festival goer will also get a free souvenir programme on arrival at the site with timings on for all stages.

What time does it finish?

The Main stage acts finish at 11.30pm each night with live music continuing on the Other Stage until 12.45am.

Can I get a refund on my ticket(s)?

Unfortunately no refunds are available on any ticket purchases.

Can I go for just one day?

Yes, day tickets are available for each day. They provide access to the car park and main arena but don’t allow entry to any of the campsites.

Can I pay extra to camp with a Day Ticket?

Unfortunately not.  Weekend tickets are the only way to stay at our campsites. Day ticket holders do not have access to these under any circumstances.  

Is it child friendly?

Absolutely. The festival is geared up to entertaining the whole family. Of course, children should be supervised at all times but there are loads of things for them to do around the site. Under 18 tickets must be bought in conjunction with and adult ticket (maximum of 2 under 18s per adult).  Adult and children must be wristbanded at the same time on arrival at the festival site. Responsible adults need to be legal parent / guardians or over the age of 25 and will be wristbanded on site together. Proof of age may be required.

I’m a trader and would like to attend. How can I find out more details?

Are you looking for any volunteers?

We’re always on the look-out for enthusiastic, hard-working and fun people to join our team of volunteers. To get in touch, click the volunteer tab on the website or please send a message via our contact page or through our facebook page

How accessible is the site?

The site is relatively flat and we have welcomed a number of visitors in wheelchairs in the past couple of years. As with all green field sites, if it rains then areas of heavy footfall will become muddy. We have a viewing platform in the main arena for wheelchair users.

There is a dedicated accessible camping and parking area for blue badge holders only by the main arena gate. Enter via GATE 1 off Lovesgrove roundabout and stewards will direct you on the day.

Complimentary  tickets for carers are available via the HYNT scheme. Please contact the box office at Aberystwyth Arts Centre (01970623232) for more details.

Are there any cash machines on site?

No. The nearest cash machines are in Aberystwyth, approximately 3 miles from the festival site.

Can I leave site during the festival?

Yes, though if you move your car during the weekend then parking in the same space / area is not guaranteed on your return.

Be aware that drivers can also be over the alcohol limit the following day so please make sure you are safe to drive before leaving. Police make regular safety patrols outside the festival site during the weekend.
