How do I get to Mucky Weekender Festival?

The Festival is held at our beautiful site at
Vicarage Farm
SO21 3BL


  • Access to the site is very easy from the A33 which is the main road between Winchester and Basingstoke. Please purchase your car pass with your festival ticket. There is a drop off point before entering the Car Park. There is no other parking allowed within walking distance of the site.


  • There is a Railway station at Micheldever Station just 2.5 miles away.  The service is on the South West Mainline from Waterloo to Southampton and runs regularly weekdays and weekends


  • Sorry there are no rural bus stops near the festival, there is a stop at Micheldever with services from Basingstoke and Winchester

When will the gates to the Festival open & close?

  • The carpark, live-in vehicle and public entry gates will open at 10am on Thursday 5th September 2024 (only for customers that have purchased the Thursday arrival ticket) and close at 9:30pm that night – no entry after that time until Friday 6th September at 10:00am. The gates on Friday 6th September will close at 9:30pm and reopen on Saturday 7th September at 10am and close at 9:30pm.

What time will the entertainment start and finish?

  • Thursday 2pm – 11pm – Friday midday – 2am, Saturday midday – 2am. No music on Sunday.

Can I put a tent up in the Live-In Vehicle area?

  • Due to fire safety regulations tents cannot be erected next to vehicles. Awnings are allowed if they’re attached to motor home. Please don’t bring large gazebos that take up space as the site is small and we want to make sure everyone has ample room to camp. You must stay within your 7m x 6m allocated space.

Who do I contact regarding a ticket enquiry?

Can I bring my dog?

  • Unfortunately, due to the event being on active farmland we cannot have any pets at the event. Please contact us if you have a service dog.

What days can we camp at the Weekender?

  • Access to Camping and live-in vehicle pitching opens from Thursday at 2pm only for customers that have purchased the Thursday arrival ticket. On Friday and Saturday, access is from 10am and we ask that everyone vacates on Sunday by 3:00pm

Can I park my car for the weekend?

  • Yes, please purchase your car pass with your festival ticket.
  • We encourage car shares and using public transport where possible.

Can we bring booze?

  • It is fine to bring a few drinks into the camping area.
  • Please do not bring any glass bottles as no glass is allowed onsite. These will be taken from you at the gate.

  • We allow people to bring in alcohol for personal consumption in the camp sites so a small amount is allowed. No alcohol can be brought into the arena.
  • Reasonably priced bars are available across the arena there is also water freely available across the whole site.

Will this event be suitable for my kids?

  • Mucky Weekender is a strictly NO UNDER 16’s festival. 16-17 year olds must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Over 18s allowed.

What’s the deal with tickets on arrival and do I need ID?

  • You only need your unique e-ticket number or barcode at the gate, so print it off or bring it on your phone to show on the gate. If you are lucky enough to look younger than 25, you will need ID to be served at the bar. Don’t worry if your ticket doesn’t have your name on it, as long as it’s valid all we need is the barcode to scan on the gate.

Will you be releasing Set Times before the event?

  • Yes we will do closer to the event.

How accessible is the site?

  • The site is on active farm land so the ground is fairly uneven in places. Please email with any queries about inclusive access – info@mucky-weekender.co.uk

Can I use my card on site and will there be cash points?

  • Yes you will be able to use both cash and cards at the festival and we supply ATM outlets for the weekend

I would like to trade, steward or volunteer at Mucky Weekender!
