Entry to the Site will only be authorised upon presentation of a valid ticket, authorised voucher, pass, wrist band or accreditation issued by or on behalf of RSF and, if required by RSF, photographic proof of identity.

Tickets ordered via Skiddle are e-tickets. You will receive a confirmation email at time of purchase and a subsequent email (2 weeks prior to the event) with your barcodes for scanning. Please check both your inbox and spam folder as sometimes these emails get marked as junk. If you do not receive the barcode email, you can download your tickets by signing into your Skiddle account (which you will set up when purchasing the tickets).

Both full event and day tickets include access to all arena open air and tented concert performances, speaker venues and workshops (numbers may be restricted at certain workshops and entry will be on a first come first serve basis – we advise early arrival to guarantee a place. The workshops and talks programme begins from Saturday morning onwards).

Full event tickets include free camping at Euston Park. You can enter the site from 09.00hrs Friday 1st July and last entry each day will be 21.30hrs when our box office and gates will close. You may stay overnight on Sunday, but must leave the site by 14.00hrs.

Water, Showers and Toilets are located in the campsite.

Open fires, or tin foil barbeque or equivalent devices which could potentially damage grassed areas are not permitted at Euston Park.

Day Tickets are valid Friday, Saturday and Sunday only. No admission will be allowed on Friday with a Saturday day ticket. If you wish to arrive Friday you will need to purchase a Friday Wild Paths Opening Party ticket or full event ticket. Gates open for Day ticket holders from 09.00hrs on Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July. You are not permitted to camp overnight if you hold a day ticket.

Wristbands must be worn at all times and shown to RSF staff upon entry to the arena. Ticket holders enter the Site at their own risk.

Vehicle Tickets

If you need to arrive by car, or are staying in a live-in vehicle, caravan or motorhome, you will need to purchase the appropriate vehicle ticket to present on arrival. For each vehicle ticket purchased, we will donate 50% of the ticket price to our chosen NGO partners; Amnesty International, Frank Water, Medecines Sans Frontieres and World Land Trust.

At present, we have no plans for electrical hook-ups for campervans, caravans or motor homes. We will advise you if this position changes through our website, social media and/or email, if you have already booked your live-in vehicle tickets.

All vehicle tickets must be purchased in advance and will not be available at the box office or other entry points upon arrival.

All drivers must fully comply with the direction of authorised stewards upon arrival to the site. Live-in vehicles and caravan users will be directed to the designated campsite which is strictly for vehicular campers only.

No cars will be allowed to park in tent camping areas under any circumstances, but the full event ticket holder car park will be in fairly close proximity to the tent camp site. This is for safety reasons and in compliance with festival safety guidelines published by the HSE (Health and Safety Executive).

If you purchase a 1 day only ticket, you will be parked in the day ticket car park. No overnight parking is permitted. Please follow steward instructions upon arrival and be ready to present your separate vehicle day parking ticket.

Carer/Personal Assistant Ticket and Blue Badge Parking

1 Carer or Personal Assistant ticket is permitted with 1 adult ticket purchased. Carer or Personal Assistant tickets must be agreed in advance with relevant proof of eligibility. All enquires should be sent in the first instance to info@rsffestival.co.uk We will have a designated blue badge area for parking and will send further information ahead of the event. All Blue badge holders must display their Blue badge clearly upon entry and when parked up.

Child & Under 15 year old Tickets

Child and under 15 year olds are free at RSF, but can only enter the festival with the parent/guardian who purchased their tickets, who is then responsible for them throughout the event. Each parent/guardian may order up to 3 child/under 15 year old tickets with the appropriate Adult Full Event or Day ticket purchased.

Whilst we will provide lots of activity and workshops for younger children, please note, there is no crèche facilities on site. Any unaccompanied child (aged 12 years and under) who is not able to locate or contact their adult will be treated as a found child and accompanied to welfare.

Teens are the responsibility of their appointed adult at all times whilst at the festival. Whilst we do not expect older children and teenagers to be with their parent or guardian at all times, we do expect them to camp together, and for the child/teenager to know the location of their adult, and have means of contacting them, or agreed meeting points. Well-behaved children/teenagers are most welcome at RSF, however, we will take action to return teenagers who are considered to be intoxicated, displaying antisocial behaviour or felt to be vulnerable, to their adults, who will be informed that failure to monitor the behaviour and activities of their teens will result in both their and their teen’s eviction from site.

Under 18’s Bar Policy: Vulnerable young people are our priority, we take this extremely seriously and we need to do this to protect them. We will operate a strict proof of ID policy at all onsite festival bars to anyone who appears under age trying to purchase alcohol, so please, please remember your ID if you are lucky enough to look under 25. Please note, we reserve the right to refuse anyone alcoholic drink purchases who cannot produce a valid form of ID. We also reserve the right not to serve anyone over the age of 18 who we suspect is attempting to purchase alcohol for someone under age.
