Camping is included in your festival ticket, just turn up & pitch up . Please read the rules below.
Don't fancy camping? Then for additional costs why not try glamping or head straight for the nearest hotel! The choice is yours!
caravans & campervans
Due to Health and Safety policies they are not allowed to park in the standard camping area. Strictly no vehicles will be allowed in the standard camping area. Should you have friends wanting to camp with you then they can do so in the Camper & Caravan area, just request a bigger plot on arrival to fit tents around the van.
There are no electric hook ups at Prestwold, however most Caravans & Campers will last one weekend on their battery. We love to use renewable energy where we can and therefore suggest solar packs if you require an extra boost to your van, There are guidelines here: http://www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk/helpandadvice/technicalhelp/power/solar-power/
Fancy a caravan or motorhome, but dont own one? Then hire one, just a few miles away from Prestwold Hall!
Onsite yurts and bell tents. Got no tent, or need a little more luxury, then why not try glamping.
There are lots of local hotels, from small B&B's surrounding the festival site to Travelodge & Premier Inn in Loughborough Centre.
CAMPING RULES - At L Fest HQ, we try to be as relaxed as possible to ensure you have a good weekend. However, there are just a few ground rules we'd like you to be aware of for everyone's safety:
First come, first served. There are no set plots, but gates will not open until 1pm.
Don't overload. You can bring any size tent, but please try and be specific to the number of people camping to the berth tent
Live in vehicles. You cannot sleep in cars and all vans must be converted with official sleeping areas.
Dogs are allowed on leads, but owners must be responsible and clean up after them. You will be asked to sign a disclaimer on arrival asking for your dogs insurance. L Fest cic is not liable for any dogs on site. We do have a dog show on Sunday morning and doggie day care which Is very popular!
Cooking - You are permitted to use SMALL gas camping stoves and portable BBQ's off the floor. DO NOT take any cooking appliances or naked flames into your tent, porch or enclosed space. Only use in an open space and 3 meters away from any tents due to fire risks. CARBON MONOXIDE FROM COOKING ON GAS OR BBQS IN ENCLOSED SPACES CAN KILL. PLEASE SEE THIS WEBSITE FOR MORE DETAILS: https://www.campsites.co.uk/guides/camping-for-beginners/beware-carbon-monoxide-poisoning
Carpark - The carpark is near to the camping but should you need help the L Fest Crew are on hand to assist you with their pink wheel barrows.
Glamping - Everyone can use the glamping room (next to the 2 blocks of hot showers!) which has plug sockets for straighteners and hairdryers and mirrors!
Toilets - There are portable toilets on the campsite and within the arena and yes as always we will attempt to always have toilet roll!
Alcohol - You can bring your own alcohol onto site for use in the campsite. New for 2017, L Fest will be providing our own bar. This will help the festival be sustainable so please support us and not the big commercial supermarkets and buy your alcohol at the festival. Glass is not permitted as this is farmland and many animals use this grass. Any glass bottles found will be siezed.
Food - We have many catering units onsite, local pubs and the local town is just a few miles away.
The camping zones are:
Standard - Arrive, Set up Camp, Enjoy! No motor vehicles in this area.
Family - We want little L Festers to enjoy the festival too, so we will have a specific area for families, so there is less late night noise and toys to play with!
Solo Club - Don't worry about coming on your own, the solos zone will welcome everyone. As one L Fester said in 2011, "you can come on your own and go home with 50 new friends"
Access Camping - Close access to the main arena, toilets within the camping area.There is wheelchair access to most events. The designated camping area is situated close to wheelchair accessible toilets and shower. Battery charging is available for electric scooters and wheelchairs.
Artists - Artists are encouraged to spend the whole weekend at the festival with us.
Our festival opens at 1pm on Friday 21st July, and the event finishes at midday on Monday 24th July.
At L Fest you know we like to go green - I am one of the only people who can actually do a green wash after all! Anyway we like to go eco green too and love having Resource Living at the festival with their solar powered fire engine for lighting all of our camp field with lovely colourful lights and chargign electric wheel chairs. It looks great and good for the environment, everyone's a winner!
