Meadows operates a fantastic shuttle bus service! Tickets are available now via this website and must be booked in advance.

You can but it will be more expensive: EUR 10 on the door and EUR 6.50 in advance via this website.

We do not have any area to accommodate camper vans – they would need to be parked in the main car park 3km from the village, however, this carpark has no facilities.

Can I bring my children?

Sorry no not yet. This is an over-18s event. 


Can I bring my pet?

Due to the nature of our surroundings, the local’s livestock is allowed to roam freely around the village. Previously we have had issues with dogs chasing local livestock so we have adopted a NO PET POLICY.

You can in camping areas, but you won’t be able to bring alcohol into the main festival site, there are plenty of bars on site.

How far is the festival from the campsite and village accommodation?

Totally depends on where you are staying, although you will always be close to a festival shuttle stop to take you within a short walk to the festival site. Most camping areas are within a 15 minute walk to the festival site.

No there are an array of food options we provide from vegetarian to a large BBQ.

If I purchase a group discount ticket do we all have to arrive at the same time?

No! The person who booked the group ticket needs to allocate each ticket ahead of the festival and once the tickets are fully paid you will then receive a ticket for each person attending. You can then forward these onto any member of your party, meaning you do not have to arrive together.

Other

Is there disability Access?

We are located on top of a mountain so disabled access is very limited.

Is there Car parking?

Yes, if you are bringing a vehicle the car park is located just over 3km from the village, in an abandoned hotel.  You must book your space online in advance.  There are no cars allowed in village centre, so please park up before coming to Village HQ to check in. There will be a shuttle bus running 24hrs a day to and from the car park. Please be aware if you have a live-in vehicle there are no facilities.

Can I get a taxi easily?

The festival village is 30 mins from the nearest town and taxi’s are not readily available. Most of your required items can be purchased at the village shop or on site. Also to try and reduce our carbon foot print we are encouraging people to be more organised and not leave the village. Once you have arrived the scenery, music and community is so good why would you want to leave especially when you only have 3-5 days here.
