  • Inflatable Slide

On top of this, there's a dedicated Teen Tent catering to adolescents aged 13-17, a group often overlooked at festivals. The tent is equipped with music gear, comfortable sofas, video game consoles, a pool table, and all essential WiFi access!

Are dogs allowed?

Unfortunately, furry friends need to stay at home as the only dogs allowed at assistance dogs.

How does camping work?

Camping is catered for within the festival grounds. Camping areas open at 12:00pm on Thursday 4th July and close at 10:00am on Monday 8th July.

It’s up to a 200m distance from the car park to camping, which is separated into campervans, caravans and motorhome areas as well as a general camping area opposite the main arena. Safety is ensured as the 7m x 7m camping pitches are divided into lanes so emergency services have easier access. Toilets and showers are inside the camping field at not extra charge.

If you choose a Live In Vehicle or have an awning, this needs to be accommodated within a 8m x 5m space. Tickets for Electrical Hook Up for camping and campervans are available, this opens from 6pm, on Thursday 4th July. Camping stoves and raised BBQs are welcomed whereas open fires and ground BBQs are not permitted.

All pitches need to be booked via online request, so a space is guaranteed when you arrive.

Are there volunteering opportunities?

Yes, Minety Festival is worked completely by volunteers as it’s a not-for-profit community. Work a shift and get a free day ticket! There are vacant roles in the following: set-up and site construction, car-parking, bar staff, kid zone, catering, stewarding, crew and site take-down / clean-up. Four charities are being fundraised for this year: Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Naomi House Hospice & Jacksplace, Combat Stress and Kandu Arts. These are all fantastic charities that do great work daily and Minety Festival will be able to support them with your help.
