When you buy a ticket, you will only be able to do so alongside buying a ticket for a child.

Ultimately we are festival for kids. If you don’t have children, of course you can attend but you will need to be with your extended family, or alongside a family that has children in.

This is a festival for children and so the entertainment is geared, quite simply for kids. There is entertainment and music for the adults too.

If you are coming without children, on the terms stated above – please be sure to team up with your family friends when you purchase your tickets, so you can all come and camp together as one big happy family.

The ticket prices for this year’s festival can be found on the Tickets page and are explained in Tier’s. The earlier you buy your ticket the cheaper it is.

Please note that there is a booking fee per ticket, and a Visa card fee charged on the transaction total.

Yes! We are delighted to announce that for 2024, Dogs can come along as part of your family! They do not need a ticket but please ensure that the festival is the right place for your pup!

We do ask that all dogs are kept on leads at all times and all mess is cleaned up and disposed of. Dogs must not be left unattended in cars or campervans. Please also remember there will be lots of kids at this festival so again think if this is the correct environment for your dog.

No age limit. All children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult, legal or non-legal guardian. If you are their non-legal guardian, you must complete a non-legal guardian form which should be handed to the festival when showing your tickets on arrival. If you require the form, this please email us at info@lindisfarnefestival.com

Children ages 2 and under come free at the festival and do not require a ticket.

We have a payment plan in the making and will be getting up on the ticket pages for Christmas so please watch this space.

Yes all weekend Tickets are valid from Friday afternoon to Monday.

A limited number of Day Tickets will go on sale for Saturday and Sunday. As this is when the bulk of the activities will take place, these are the only day tickets we will sell.

No – Day Tickets do not provide access to any campsites. If you want to stay overnight at the event, you’ll need to purchase a Weekend Camping Ticket. Campsites will be marshalled.

You will receive e-tickets prior to the festival. Your e-ticket will contain a QR code which you should present on entry. It would be helpful if you can print this off or have tickets downloaded onto your phone ready to scan

You will be able to see a site map online prior to the festival and also in the programme booklet which will be available for the weekend, on arrival.

We will also get this up on our website in the weeks prior to the festival. 
Programmes are sold at the festival only.

Full details on all activities and entertainments will be coming soon – with lots of brand new activities coming for 2024!

All bars will be accepting both cash and card. HOWEVER – signal is really bad. We have got boosters, but always good to have a back up option with cash.

Most traders accept both, however, it is advisable to bring some cash as small amounts of cash will still be needed around the site for therapeutics, funfair rides, and other traders and retailers. Please be sure to keep it safe and any valuables left at home or locked up in your car.

If you are camping you can arrive on Friday 26th July and leave on Monday 29th July.

We will be getting more information in here over the next few weeks and so please keep an eye on these FAQ’s or if you need to know a little more logistical info, don’t hesitate to drop us a line.

We will get the exact directions up on here to make sure you find us easily closer to the time too! It’s really easy to find – because we will be creating a one way system within the estate, we are still confirming which will be the entry route and which will be the exit.

The festival will end on Monday morning, and so you can get up and get away after a cup of tea or coffee or stick around for morning yoga, before a leisurely drive home.

Car parking permits are available to buy with your tickets for £20 in advance. You only need one ticket for the weekend.

You can buy on the day but this will be a higher price

In general campsites, you can set up camp in anywhere you like, but you are not allowed to camp in any of the festival arenas.

There will be wardens in the campsite to make sure that we allow enough space for everyone. 
Please let us know if you require accessible camping by emailing us at info@lindisfarnefestival.com and our team will send over our accessibility forms to ensure we can accommodate your needs.

The only areas where it’s possible to reserve a space at Little Lindi is our Glamping pitches, where you pay for a pre-pitched structure. Glamping info coming soon!

See our Glamping Info pages for more info.

The general camping areas are an open space where you find a free space to camp when you arrive. These areas have plenty of space and facilities and most families attending the festival stay in general camping.

Campervans (and caravans/trailer tents) are lined-up by our staff when they arrive sequentially. If you want to camp with friends please ensure you all arrive together!

Unfortunately not. No general tents are allowed in the Glamping fields.

As long as you arrive together you will be able to camp side by side with your live in vehicles. Please note – tents cannot be pitched in the live in vehicle fields.

Yes, you can bring in a reasonable amount of alcohol per person into the campsites for your own personal consumption. Please read our Terms and Conditions.

There are fully licensed bars available for you.

Please remember that glass is not allowed anywhere at Little Lindi, so make sure to decant anything you are planning to bring into the campsites into reusable containers before you arrive. This is to keep you safe and the site broken glass free!

We will be operating and enforcing a strict challenge 25 policy at the festival. If you can’t provide valid identification when asked by bar staff, you will be asked to leave the site and come back with your ID. So if you are lucky enough to look 25 or younger, please make sure that you bring an acceptable form of identification. This policy is in place, as we want to look after the young people and ensure alcohol is drank in moderation.

lanes, (please dispose of them in the BBQ bins once completely extinguished. Do not use stoves or disposable BBQs inside your tent, awning or campervan. Carbon monoxide can kill.

We don’t have any confirmed dedicated charging point so please charge as much as you can at home and in your cars and let’s try and have a screen free weekend when possible. 

Showers will be available on site and shower passes will be on sale soon.

Yes there are plenty free water points located around the main arenas/fields and campsites. Just bring a reusable bottle/container (not glass) to fill up.

Yes. You should buy all of the standard ticket e.g. adult, child etc and then contact info@theticketsellers.co.uk who will then add a free carer (PA) ticket to your order.

If you are a carer coming on your own with a child you won’t be able to purchase tickets online and will need to contact the ticket sellers email above in the first instance. *This is for child safety reasons and to ensure under 18 tickets cannot be purchased without an adult – thank you for your understanding.
You will be asked to provide all necessary documentation for the free carer ticket.

There are roads that run around the site. It takes about ten-fifteen minutes to walk between all of the areas. Some roads are uphill.
There will be a free land train that will be circling the site to assist festival-goers.
All of the activities are on fields, so if you require one we do recommend hardy/strong buggies if you choose to bring a buggy.  You might find a sling useful. We found this great sling support group based in Durham – www.facebook.com/northeastslings/
Many people have asked if the site is buggy friendly – if it rains, the grass will be boggy – we of course hope for the best and sunniest weather for us the whole weekend!
Fields are not completely flat, but you should be able to pull a cart or push a buggy around the site.
Here is a link to a review of Kids trolleys – www.festivalkidz.com/advice/festival-trolley-festival-wagon/
We really do recommend you get a trolley! Kids can be carried in them, sleep in them, eat in them and even play in them.
The short video below captures of the whole site so you can know what to expect.

The car park is in a different field to the camping. There is a 5–10 walk to the campsites so we recommend bringing a trolley to transport your gear. We will have some volunteers who may be able to help those in need but we cannot guarantee this

Yes. Posh toilets can be bought from the ticket page.

Tent pitches are approximately 5 square metres. We are aware some people have long tents and some wide, and so this space can be used to accommodate your tent as is needed. Please consider others in the campsite, please don’t use more space than is required to be comfortable. There is a lot of us happy campers to get in and we all want to be happy and comfortable.

Van pitches are 7.5 x 5 meters. You can have an awning but it should be within your pitch space

Due to health & safety reasons tents are unable to camp next to live in vehicles and vice versa

The cost of your ticket includes camping if you choose to camp. Workshops, performances and all the music is also included in your ticket. Additional costs include fairground rides, food, therapies, drink and posh toilets and showers.

Due to licensing – your own alcohol is not permitted in the festival grounds. Over 18’s can bring their own alcohol into the campsites. Please remember this is a family festival and we ask that noise in the campsites is kept to a minimum out off respect to your fellow festival goers.

Yes, the river is beautiful and runs next to certain parts of the site. The river is FAST FLOWING and is very dangerous and children should be accompanied by an adult at all times, especially near the river.

We want everyone to have the best time, but we ask that children to be accompanied by an adult at all times. Safeguarding your child is your responsibility.Children should be supervised by a parent/guardian at all times
