Campsite and Arrival
The Campsite will be open from Thursday 4th September for those that have bought the early entry Thursday festival ticket. There is a specific Boutique Camping Car Park which is very close to the Podpad area so you don’t need to buy the Bestival car park pass. The Podpads campsite is in the Boutique Camping area, and is 20 minutes walk from the main stage arena. This is now a ticketed area and tickets must be purchased from ticketline for £35 each. Once you have booked you will be email with a link to the website to purchase the boutique ticket.
NOTE: all guests must buy a boutique ticket!
There are Toilets, showers, a Bar and a Café in the area, and it has 24/7 security. Bestival have introduced this additional ticket to maintain the high level of service in Boutique Camping. We had lots of feedback about the dedicated toilet and shower locations last year in this exclusive camping area and we want to improve these for you to enjoy. The car park will continue to be FREE and close to the camping area; there will be 24-hour security and plenty of room to relax and enjoy your time away from the main arenas. There will be a lovely chill out bar serving until late for the sole use of Boutique campers and Wild Copse customers.
'Podpads' will be ready for when the festival opens on Thursday for those guests that have bought the Thursday arrival tickets and Friday otherwise. We ask guests to depart before Monday 10am.
During the festival the Podpads reception will be open in the morning and late afternoon or at the times specified on the blackboard. When the reception is open there will be free tea, coffee and squash. Phone charging from normal 240V electric will also be available so please bring your normal phone charger.
We now offer Podpads Plus at this Festival. Find out more here.
