There will be a soft-drink bar in addition to a traditional bar. An under-25 policy is in place so bring ID if you wish to drink alcohol. A pint will cost £4.50. The last drink will be served at 10.45pm.

Accepted ID will be valid passport, driving licence or photographic identity card bearing the PASS hologram.

Clothes

Organisers have warned festivalgoers to bring warm clothes. Even if it is sunny it is likely to be colder in the evening.

Be aware it is parkland which could be muddy so be sure to bring suitable shoes such as wellies or walking boots.

Phones

There will be two phone masts on site to improve 3G and 4G coverage. Make sure your phone is charged.

Performances

The first act will be on at about 1pm and the last acts will finish at about 11pm. The BBC Introducing stage and In New Music We Trust stages will close in time for everyone to watch the headline acts.
