A few tips and tricks:
Avoid setting up next to vehicle exhaust.
Keep your campsite free of flammable material and rubbish (use bins provided).
Don’t leave your vehicle running longer than necessary.
No gas bottles (including fridges, burners and kegs that require cylinders).
Bring garbage bags to store your rubbish in and take back once the event is over.
No cooking/heating appliances. There re plenty of affordable and delicious food options – so no need to bring your cooking gear – why not have a real break!
Mark your tent so you can find it easily at night.
Be nice to your neighbours –
- If noise of any form from your campsite is bothering your neighbours, at any time during the event, you will be asked to quieten down or turn your music down. If you do not reduce you noise levels, you will either be moved to the outer-most part of the campgrounds, or asked to leave. You can play music and have fun at your campsite, but you cannot annoy your neighbours. Introducing yourself to your neighbours when you arrive is a good way to deal with nuisance before it happens.
