2. Getting There

The two most viable options are getting the festival bus, or driving.


If driving you can get exact directions here.

3. Weather

If we're perfectly honest, it's looking a bit patchy! Make sure you pack a woolly jumper and a raincoat just in case...


But hopefully we'll just end up basking in the sunshine like these lads:

5. What's the story with booze?

You can bring:

  • 24 cans of beer/cider and 2 bottles of wine per person (no glass permitted onsite)


  • 1 bottle (750cl) of spirits and 2 bottles of wine per person (no glass permitted onsite).

Body & Soul love their attendees so much that they operate a super sound 'free flow' system once you're inside the festival gates. There's no need to hide your drink as you go past security into the main arena - you and your alcohol are free to roam wherever you wish. Unbelievable scenes!

  • Grab an Elderflower Collins at The Glasshouse in the walled gardens
  • Catch the Mother DJs at Reckless In Love stage on the Saturday night
