Lakefest is an independent festival and we rely on our bar sales to keep the festival alive. No alcohol can be carried into the arena, but we have a superb selection of bars to visit. We ask that you respect the festival and limit the amount of alcohol that you bring to consume in your camping areas. No glass is permitted.

Due to extreme weather conditions a joint decision between Eastnor Estate, Herefordshire Council and Lakefest has been made to not allow any naked flames in the campsites. This includes stoves, BBQ’s, log burners and firepits. Gas burners ARE permitted in campervans, motorhomes and caravans.

How Do I Apply To Perform or Trade?

Toilets at festivals are a barometer of your behaviour the more you respect and look after the toilets, the cleaner they will be. We do our best to ensure all the toilets are serviced regularly, and are as clean as possible! All toilets blocks are also fitted with an alcohol hand gel sanitiser.

Will Showers Be Available?

Yes, these are located in the camping fields.
