OPENING TIMES

Festival opening times: Noon to 11pm
The last act on main stage will finish at 10:30pm so you don’t have to miss the last bus or train home if not staying in the city.
Entry to the festival site will not be allowed outside of these times, so please plan ahead.

ENTRY RULES:

If you want to be sure not to miss out on HOPE & GLORY then you’ll need to buy your ticket in advance. We can’t guarantee that tickets will be available on the gates. Please see our ticket section for details of ticket types and where to buy them.

Under-16s must be accompanied by a ticket-holding parent or guardian over the age of 30. ID will be checked at the gates and entry refused to under-16s not accompanied by an adult.

We have a limited number of free tickets for under-5s. They must be accompanied by an adult at all times and, even though they go free, you must obtain a ticket for them.

By purchasing an Under 5s or Under 16s ticket, you are confirming that you are either their parent, legal guardian or have been given permission by their parent or legal guardian to be their responsible adult at the festival.
