On The Day

Remember to Bring Your Wristband

Please note that entry to Buckfest is via a pre-purchased wristband only. We're a licenced event, and numbers are strictly limited. Everyone needs a wristband to gain entry; it doesn't matter who you know or what age you are: no wristband, no entry — no exceptions.

Bring Your Wallet, Not Booze

No alcohol, glass or cans can be brought into the festival arena; only alcohol purchased on site is permitted. All Buckfest bars accept cash and card payments, but card payment is preferred. See our full Terms & Conditions for details.

There will also be a selection of quality food and merchandise that you can purchase throughout the day to help support the festival.

Parking

We have similar parking arrangements as we had in 2019. This is to mitigate issues with irresponsible parking and help to ensure the residents of Buckden are able to access their property easily, as well as ensuring access in the event of an emergency vehicle needing to do so.

The car park is a 5 minute walk from Buckfest Music Festival and will be signposted for both vehicles and pedestrians.

The car park is located on Stirtloe Lane, in a farm yard and is easily accessible from the A1 and the village; directions and maps are provided below.

Respect the Venue & Enjoy the Day

Please respect the fields of Buckfest and all around you.

Please don't drop litter. Your waste is for you to bin, not a volunteer steward! Please use the bins provided; it shows you care and appreciate the ethos of Buckfest.

We will ensure all bins are clearly marked: Recycling and Non-Recycling. Buckfest recycles paper, cardboard, cans, plastic bottles and containers for dry mixed recycling. The main aim is to get everyone recycling like they would at home — or better.
