Can I bring my own alcohol?

You cannot bring your own alcohol into the event field, however you can consume your own alcohol in the campsite. Due to licensing and health and safety concerns, we cannot allow the public to bring in their own alcohol to the main event field. This is not so we can hike up the price of drinks, but its because as licence holder's we have a legal responsibility to host an event that is as safe as it can possibly be. The bar prices are very reasonable (£4-£5.50 a pint), and inline with what you would pay down your local pub.

Voluntary bag checks by security staff are a condition of entering the event field. Any alcohol found will be confiscated. Wrist bands will also be checked (please refer to our terms and conditions for clarity).

Under age drinking will not be tolerated at Crawfest. If anyone under age of 18 years old is found to be consuming alcohol, appropriate action will be taken by our security team immediately.

How do I get my wrist band?

On entering the event field for the first time, your e-ticket will be checked (printed copy or on your phone), and you will then be issued with the appropriate coloured wrist band. Your wrist band needs to be worn at all times. Anyone found without a wrist band will be charged for entry, or escorted by security from the festival.

Where and when can I purchase my Crawfest ticket?

You can only purchase tickets on this website once released for sale. You will be issued with an E ticket which you will need to show at the gate on your phone or a printed copy, so you can be issued with an appropriate wrist band by a steward, in order to gain entry to the festival site.

Please don't leave it too late to book a camping pitch, as we have limited availability.

Will I be able to purchase a ticket on the day?

Tickets can be purchased on the day, but only if we have availability. In order to avoid disappointment, I would strongly advise you buy tickets in advance.

Can I camp over night?

We have a camping field on the festival site suitable for tents, camper vans, and caravans right next door to the main event field. 

When purchasing tickets you will have the option of purchase a camping pitch if there is availability. Camping pitches will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Only those with a pre-purchased camping pitch will be allowed access on the day. We have a strict pre-determined number of camping pitches available, and once they are sold, no further spaces will be available. 

Only ONE person in the party sharing the same tent, caravan, or camper van needs to book a camping pitch, so great value for money.

Please book early to avoid disappointment.

Are Camper vans and Caravans allowed?

Camper vans and Caravans up to 7.5m in length are welcome at Crawfest. Unfortunately we cannot cater for vehicles longer than this, or allow awnings or gazebos to be erected alongside vehicles, due to the limited space we have available on site.

Cars can be parked next to tents, but will not be allowed to move until Sunday. If you need your car during the festival, you can unload your car at your pitch, and then move it into the carpark when you arrive.

When can I access the campsite to set up my tent?

Ticket holders that have purchased a camping / campervan pitch, can access the Crawfest campsite from 11am on the day to pitch tents etc, with access to the stage field from midday onwards.

Do I need to pay for children?

Any person over the age of 16 will require an adult ticket.
Children aged 5 - 16 years will require a child's ticket.
Children under 5 are free.

Are dogs allowed at Crawfest?

We are dog friendly! All we ask is you keep your dog on the lead at all times and clean up after them. Thank you.

Is there parking on site for those not camping at Crawfest?

We have a large FREE car-park at Crawfest for those not camping overnight. 

Can we have our own BBQ's at Crawfest?

BBQ's are allowed in the campsite, as long as they are raised off the ground and not directly on the grass to reduce the risk of fire. BBQ's will need to be extinguished by 10pm please. BBQ's are not permitted in the main event / stage field due to health and safety requirements.

What is there at Crawfest to keep the kids occupied?

Crawfest is a family festival, so we want to keep the kids happy, because Happy kids mean happy parents!

At Crawfest we have inflatables, bungee trampolines, a vintage fun fair, various market stalls, and a craft tent with pottery painting, mural painting and loads of other stuff. Having seen the amazing fun that kids had playing in hay bails last year, there will be a dedicated hay bail tent where kids can make dens, race around, and have endless fun!

Why is camping being allocated separately, and not included in the price of the ticket this year?

We have taken the decision to sell camping pitches separately this year as we have limited space. Last year only 500 people attended Crawfest making it possible to include camping for free. This year however, we hope to sell 1500 tickets, and so need to ensure we provide a safe camping space, by limiting the number of pitches in one field in accordance with health and safety legislation.

We also feel that pricing the tickets this way is fairer for those that choose not to camp.

All the proceeds from selling tickets and camping pitches enables Crawfest to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Do children need to be accompanied by an adult?

All under 17's need to be accompanied by an adult at Crawfest.

What facilities will there be for those individuals physically disabled?

At Crawfest we will have disabled toilets and a disabled parking area close to the entrance. Please be aware the festival is on a farm, and so the ground is uneven. However, we will have a team of stewards that will be happy to give any assistance required.

Will there be enough toilets?

Last year at our first Crawfest we under catered on the toilet front. We've learn't from this, and this year we will be booking a lot more toilets, and buying a lot more toilet roll!!

We will do our very best to keep the toilets clean for you over the weekend.  However, I would advice bringing a back up toilet roll just in case!  :)

Is there electric hook up or showers available on the campsite?

I'm sorry to say we don't have either facility on the campsite this year. We are trying to keep costs incurred to a minimum, which is reflected in the low ticket price. If people are happy to pay more, or pay to use the service on site, we can certainly look into showers and electric hook up in the future.

Is the festival safe for small children?

We will have a professional security team on duty 24hrs a day, to ensure Crawfest remains a safe event for everyone. Working alongside the security team, we will also have a large team of stewards to assist you with any issues you may have. Under age drinking will not be tolerated at Crawfest. If this issue is witnessed, or bought to the attention of our staff, immediate action will be taken. Our aim is to make Crawfest a happy, fun, and safe festival for everyone.

Can I get a refund on a purchased ticket?

I'm sorry, but we cannot offer refunds for tickets once purchased. 

Do you give a discount to registered carers?

Registered carers attending the festival for an individual with a registered disability, can be issued with a discount code giving you 75% off the price of your ticket. Just get in touch, and we will sort you out a discount.

Please note you will need to provide proof of entitlement on entry to the festival.
