Arrive on time
Note: please make sure that you arrive in plenty of time to set up your tent and register so you are ready in time.
We understand if some people need to arrive later on the first evening due to work commitments, however we really encourage as many people as can make it from the beginning of the festival.
This is unlike music and other festivals, we are taking you on a personal journey where you are encouraged to meet and connect with others and this will happen easier and deeper if you can be there from the start.
The festival finishes after a closing ceremony by 4 in the afternoon on the last day, and participants must leave the festival grounds by 6 pm that day.
