My wife goes most years, plenty walking everywhere, she loves it though, she reckons there are a few MO parking areas, check the map out, but pain to gain, the one in 2010 was a nightmare due to the heat, so pray for rain and they reckon the stones might do this one, go and enjoy.

Try and get in to East field 27ish. THey do open the fields earlier than generally stated. I tend to get E27 (with inside information!) its close enough to be convenient and far enough not to be disturbed. The most noise is on the camper fields,we have always been lucky and been with families and hire motorhomes who are usually professional people. I took my new Hymer for her maiden voyage to there in 2010 and half the time was giving guided tours of the van! Food outlets on the site are reasonably priced and tasty. The local rugby clubs have hog roasts and are very popular, The ethnic food is brill. You will pay a premium for bread and milk on site,but it is fresh. Cash machines are also on site but beware some of them charge more than a mad bull! I'm sorry I'm not going this year,as I'm involved with the Folk festival.

Hi were going again this year 1st of all its not just a young persons festival,no matter how old you think you are you wont be the oldest there Be prepared for hot or wet conditions weve had both in the past From your location in Devon youll probably be allocated the west motorhome fields (like us). The fields are sloping and for some reason that i cant understand they park you down the slope rather than along necessitating some decent levelling ramps at the front, particularly if youve a longish unit. There is usually just one water tap at the lower end of the field and i reccomend you take an aquaroll or a wheeled truck of some sort. The grey and black water dumps are here also, oh and youll need wellies for this operation by saturday even if the weather is hot and dry. Trust me youll be wanting to do any no2 performances in your own facilities so morning exercises or toned buttock muscles are essential although the toilet facilities in the motorhome fields are light years better than the main camping area. Be aware of the size of the place as its a good 20 min walk to the arenas even 45 mins to arcadia or accoustic stage. Allow plenty of time to move from place to place.
We take one of those folding chairs in a bag each together with back pack for essentials ie beer, jacket suncream,beer waterproofs beer.etc.
Make sure you check out the smaller stages not just the big names you
will most certainly find some stars of the future.
The food prices are regulated with good variety at reasonable cost.so you dont have to go back to the van or do a picnic.
Its a brilliant experience go with the flow and enjoy ! you wont be disapointed.
