FAQs

Holt Farm is a new pre-book campsite for Glastonbury Festival. We’ve pulled together all the information we think you’ll need but do get in touch on info@holtfarm.co.uk if you have any further questions.

Your Top 6 Questions

To reserve a car parking space you must choose a plot with a parking space during the booking process. Car parking spaces are limited to 1 x parking space per plot and car parking spaces are not available to book at a later date.

The loos will NOT be the festival’s long-drops! Most probably porta-johns toilets and shower trailers (with hot water), with a 24 hour cleaning crew onsite around the clock. There will be no shortage of either, but as with any campsite we would recommend avoiding peak times.

On the first entrance through Pedestrian Gate D (only 30 metres from the Holt Farm entrance), you will need to queue for your initial ticket accreditation. But once accredited there’ll be a fast track entrance for those who already have their festival wristbands, to enter via Gate D quickly!

You can use the 5 x 5m plot however you like, but your tent and guy ropes must not extend outside the 5 x 5m plot. For tents larger than 5 x 5m you will need to book a second plot.

The answer is no!
You will be required to show your Holt Farm booking confirmation, Photo ID and show your Glastonbury Festival ticket to enter the Holt Farm car park as well as entrance from Pedestrian Gate D. Ticket confirmation emails will not be accepted, only Glastonbury Festival Tickets.

If you have secured coach tickets, you will be unable to drop off a vehicle and will be turned away. Please arrive by coach if you have secured coach tickets.

Don’t worry! We’re right next to Sticklinch Car Park, but as we’re not part of Glastonbury Festival we’re not on the official map. We will have an updated map of the Holt Farm site to share with you soon so keep checking back.

Tickets & Booking

Yes. You cannot access or stay at Holt Farm unless you have already purchased Glastonbury Festival tickets.

Following check-in at Holt Farm, our Reception team will direct you to the closest accreditation site at Pedestrian Gate D to receive your festival wristbands. These will be checked on entry to the festival. Don’t forget you will need your personal photo ID.

No, you will just need the name of the Lead Booker to make a booking for Holt Farm. However, please make sure everyone in your party has Glastonbury Festival tickets otherwise they will not be allowed to stay on site. 

All you need to do is complete our online booking form and pay to secure your pitch. You can book up to x4 adjacent plots for friends and family in a booking. All booking details will be sent to the Lead Booker in a confirmation email on completion of the booking.

Please note, car parking spaces cannot be added at a later date. Please make sure you book your car parking space at the same time as your plot.

Holt Farm will send new information and updates via email to the Lead Booker noted at the time of booking. It will be the responsibility of the Lead Booker to share information received from Holt Farm with every person in their booking.

On arrival at Holt Farm, you will need to provide the Lead Booker’s full name, present your Holt Farm booking confirmation, Photo ID and show your Glastonbury Festival ticket. If you have booked a parking space you will also need to have your Parking Pass printed and displayed in your windscreen.

Holt Farm wristbands will only be issued to those who can present a valid Glastonbury Festival ticket plus Holt Farm confirmation email and photo ID. Please be prepared that wristbands will be put onto the ticket holder’s wrist by the wristbanding team. You will need to be with the Lead Booker as we cannot give any number of wristbands to the Lead Booker or other members of the party to distribute later.

Once you have checked in to Holt Farm, make your way over to Pedestrian Gate D where you can swap your Festival ticket for a Glastonbury Festival wristband. Once you have your wristbands you can use Gate D, via the fast-track entrance to access the festival.

No unaccompanied under 18s are allowed on site. All under 18s must be accompanied by a paying adult ticket holder (aged over 18.) This adult must remain on site throughout the whole weekend as the guardian of the under 18-year-old. Children of all ages are welcome when accompanied by an adult.

No, but you will need to bring proof of age if they look older than 12, and collect a child wristband from one of the information points or the Kidzfield. They must be accompanied by an adult ticket holder. Children are welcome at Holt Farm, and must be included as one of the five person limit per pitch. For more information on bringing children to Glastonbury, please visit the festival website here.

No, Holt Farm is on level ground, as well as being a flat walk to and from the festival so there’s no risk of breaking into a sweat.

With Holt Farm positioned right on edge of the festival, at one of Glastonbury’s main pedestrian gates, your route back to camp will always be well lit.

Arrivals & Parking

You will receive an email in advance of the festival with all the information you need. This will include directions and a contact telephone number for our on-site reception team. Please add info@holtfarm.co.uk to your contacts so that our emails don’t end up in your junk folder.

The camp will open on Wednesday 26th June at 12 noon and close at 12 noon on Monday 1st July. All pitches must be vacated by this time. Please do not arrive earlier than advertised as you will not be given access to the site and may cause traffic problems.

You will need to provide the following on arrival to Holt Farm. Please ensure you have the items listed below to be admitted to the car parks or at the reception tent if coming on foot.

  • Holt Farm Booking Confirmation
  • Glastonbury Festival Ticket
  • Photo ID
  • Holt Farm Parking Pass, printed and displayed in the windscreen of your car (if you have booked a parking space). Phone passes will not be accepted.

If you are arriving by car your Holt Farm wristband will be given to you by the steward in the car park. If you are arriving on foot, please make your way to our reception tent where our team will check you in. You will need your Glastonbury Festival ticket, Holt Farm Booking confirmation and photo ID before you are issued with a Holt Farm wristband. The lead booker must be present to receive the wristbands of all those in your party. Wristbands must be worn at all times when at Holt Farm or entering and exiting the festival.

To reserve a car parking space you must choose a plot with a parking space during the booking process. There are two types of pitches available at Holt Farm: with parking or without. If you would like a car parking space you must choose this type of plot at checkout.

Please note, only people who have purchased a pitch can book a parking space and car parking spaces are not available to book at a later date.

Car parking spaces are limited to 1x parking space per plot.

All Holt Farm parking spaces are 100-200 metres to the plots.

As long as you have the car parking pass printed and displayed in your windscreen you will be able to access the site.

If you have booked a car parking pass with Glastonbury Festival, you can make your way to Holt Farm by foot to Pedestrian Gate D; which is roughly 30 metres from the Holt Farm entrance.

We recommend visiting the Glastonbury Festival website for details on car parking zones and checking traffic routes before making your journey. Click here for more information on Glastonbury Festival’s car parking.

Please note we are not affiliated with Glastonbury Festivals Ltd, so if you have already bought parking passes through the festival we are not in a position to offer refunds.

Plots

Every plot is 5 x 5m. Your tent and its guy ropes must fit within the perimeter of this space. If your tent is larger than this area, or guy ropes fall outside a 5 x 5m perimeter, you will need to plot another plot.

Please note that there is a maximum occupancy of 5 people per pitch (this includes children).

No, it is a marked out 5 x 5m area for you to make your own home for the festival duration.

Pitches are suitable for up to 5 people. If your group is bigger than 5 you will need to book an additional plot. The option to book adjacent plots is available on your booking form.

No, you will need to bring your own battery packs and battery powered lights. There will be a large phone charging station on-site with secure lockers at an additional cost.

Pre-booking phone charging isn’t available, please ask the team on arrival and they’ll let you know how to book.

You can book up to 4 plots. Our booking platform is designed so that you can book adjacent plots to be next to friends and family. Please get in touch on info@holtfarm.co.uk for adjacent plot requests, with your friends and family name and booking reference.

We encourage that you book together with friends and family in the same booking if you want to have adjacent plots. We cannot guarantee different bookings will be placed next to each other, unless you contact us at info@holtfarm.co.uk.

For adjacent plot requests, please email the name of the Lead Booker and their booking reference of any friends or family you want to be pitched next to.

You can use the 5 x 5m plot however you like, but your tent and guy ropes must not extend outside the 5 x 5m perimeter.

There is no additional room available so tents that do not fit in the space provided will not be allowed. For tents larger than 5 x 5m you will need to book a second plot.

Please note, gazebos are not permitted.

Holt Farm is a camp for tents only. Caravans, motorhomes, campervans and/or trailers will not be permitted access.

Yes, when you fill in your booking form please make a note that you would like your plot to be located in the family area.

Once bookings for Holt Farm have closed, the allocation of camping fields will be decided according to numbers booked per area – General, Quiet and/or Family – and facilities shared in plentiful supply. You’ll only ever have a short walk – your steps can be saved for dancing!

Holt Farm offers a choice of 3 different camping areas – Quiet, Family and/or General – but it is located on the fence of Glastonbury Festival so whilst we hope you catch plenty of beauty sleep, we cannot control the buzz and hum from the festival itself!

Yes, but we urge you to take the party into Glastonbury! We are a family friendly campsite and so late-night revelry is best kept to the festival.

Facilities

Yes, there are plenty of clean loos and hot showers (above the standard recommendations) open 24hrs exclusively for all Holt Farm guests, with a cleaning crew working around the clock. But as with any campsite we would recommend avoiding peak times.

Yes! Bring your own hair dryers, straighteners and curling tongs, we’ve got you! The Pamper Parlour will be equipped with make up stations, dressing tables and plenty of power sockets so you can get festival ready!

As soon as you arrive on site pop down to the Nomadic team and they will be able to book you in. Card payments only.

We have limited first aid facilities at reception. If you need assistance whilst in the festival, they have one of the best satellite hospitals in the South West. The nearest medical centre is Park Home Medical Centre. Contact the nearest Festival Steward or our Reception Team if you require urgent medical attention in the campsite.

Available on a first come first serve basis, there will be a large phone charging station on-site with secure lockers for an additional charge.

Yes, there will be multiple filling stations dotted throughout the site.

There is no wifi on site at Holt Farm. Data roaming is accessible across the main festival site.

You are allowed to bring food and alcohol into Glastonbury and Holt Farm for your own personal consumption (no more than you can carry in your hands on first arrival to the campsite). No cooking is allowed on site. Please remember glass bottles are not allowed on site or at the festival and will be confiscated.

The camp has a number of water stations dotted throughout.

Reception & Security

Yes, open 24hrs a day and manned by our friendly, helpful team.

Holt Farm is only accessible to those with wristbands for Holt Farm and Glastonbury Festival.

Although we have security manning the gates, we cannot guarantee the safety of your belongings. We would recommend you keep any valuables with you or use the secure lockers provided on site.

Our security team will be patrolling the main site and car park round the clock.

There is easy access to the Festival through Pedestrian Gate D from the far right corner of Holt Farm. You will need to show your Holt Farm and Glastonbury Festival wristbands to the security team when coming in and out of Holt Farm.

Accessibility

We endeavour to make our campsite as accessible as possible, however we are in an outdoor setting in fields that could pose problems for mobility (particularly in wet weather). Our facilities include accessible loos, sinks and showers, easy access to our main reception tent, bar and chill out area.
