Frequently Asked Questions

Common questions and answers can be found here. For all other enquiries complete the contact form and will get back to you as soon as we can.

Do the Podpads have power?

The Podpads are solar powered via the iconic solar panel sunflowers which supply 5 volt electricity via a USB socket and 12 volt electricity via a car charger socket. This can be used to charge items such as mobile phones and iPods. Please do not bring kettles, fridges, cool boxes, hairdryers or straighteners, as they will very quickly drain the batteries, leaving you and your neighbours with no lights or power!

Please note that some iPhones use more electricity than other mobile phones, and so we cannot guarantee that iPhones will charge in the Podpads. However, most do, and at most festivals we provide 240v mains power phone charging points on site as backup, but please see the festival specific info for confirmation of this.

Please remember you are in a field and so a constant electric supply cannot be guaranteed.

What is a Podpad?

The Podpad is our tried and tested signature product. It is a solid plywood structure, providing snug and secure accommodation to thousands of guests each year.

How big is a Podpad?

The Podpad is solid, snug, secure and cosy, measuring 1.8 metres by 2.4 metres, reaching a maximum height of 1.6 metres at the roof apex

Are the Podpads secure?

Yes, the Podpads are secure. They are made from solid plywood and have a Yale night latch lock on the front door. You will be given a set of keys when you arrive at our reception. Please remember to hand them back when you leave!

Please remember you are at a festival and general common sense and warnings apply. Never leave cash and valuables unattended.

What is the Podpad area like?

We aim to create a chilled and safe vibe in the Podpads field. At almost all festivals Podpads will be in a specially designated area within the festival, secured by fencing, festival security and wrist-banded access, but please see festival specific info for details and confirmation of this.

At most festivals we run a reception and maintenance service, so when you arrive you will be welcomed, checked in, and shown to your accommodation.

Toilets and showers are usually in the Podpads field, but in some events they may be a short walk away. The facilities are usually for the exclusive use of guests staying within our area.

What should you bring with you if you are staying in a Podpad?

Whilst staying with Podpads is certainly a huge upgrade from the melee of the regular festival fields, please be aware that you are still in the great outdoors and you will be staying in a festival field. Here are some things which we advise that you bring with you:

Warm clothes - even though its summer, the weather can still be cold.
Sensible footwear - you will be walking through festival fields, so sensible / waterproof footwear is advised.
Extra bedding - even if you book accommodation which has bedding included you may wish to bring extra blankets to keep you warm at night. British summer nights can be cold!
