Camping ticket holders will be allowed to re-enter the campsite at any time by showing their wristband. Please note, you can only bring alcohol and food into the campsite on your initial entry.
If you lose your wristband, you will not be able to re-enter the venue unless you pay full price again. If you need your wristband replaced you will need to go to the box office with the wristband still fully intact on your wrist and pay a £5 replacement fee.
There is no re-entry for Day ticket and Weekend No Camping ticket holders. For example, if a Weekend No Camping ticket holder leaves the site on Saturday, they will not be re-admitted until the arena re-opens on Sunday.
We also understand that certain extreme circumstances can arise where leaving the site is essential. In this case, security will use their discretion and permission won’t be unreasonably withheld.
