Can I buy tickets for both days?

Yes – after adding your tickets for one day, please click ‘continue shopping’ and select the second day.

What plans are being put in place to ensure the event is safe to attend?

The event moved to the Weymouth Peninsula in 2021, enabling organisers to safely control visitor numbers and ensure that there is enough space to allow for Covid safety measures.

Hand sanitisers will be available throughout the site. Tables and eating areas will be frequently sanitised and on-site teams will help to ensure that guidelines are being followed by visitors.

The Covid safety measures put in place will be in line with government guidance at the time of the event.

What happens if the event can’t go ahead due to restrictions?

If government restrictions mean the festival can’t go ahead, it will be postponed until 2023. Tickets will automatically be transferred to next year’s dates. Alternatively, a full refund can be requested.
