Can I bring a generator to fit to my campervan? Generators are only permitted in the campervan area. Any generator must comply with the following safety measures; the generator must be suitably earthed. The generator must be positioned such that any exhaust fumes disperse readily and do not impinge on any sleeping area. The generator must be positioned away from any combustible materials. Any spare fuel must be kept in suitable containers, readily identifiable as such, and secured away from any ignition sources. The generator must be switched off and allowed to cool down prior to refuelling. Ensure there are no naked flames or other ignition sources in the area whilst refuelling. The Fire Service in conjunction with our own Health and Safety Managers will be making regular checks of the areas to ensure compliance. Those not complying risk being ejected from the festival site.
I think I may have booked tickets from a scam website, can V help? We can only advise you to contact your credit card company and ask for their help in trying to get your money back. We advise you to only book via the official outlets detailed on www.vfestival.com tickets section. You can also report anybody you suspect of internet fraud to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.

I booked a coach and festival ticket package from one of the official outlets, may I now traven by my own means?

Tickets will only be given out on the coach or when you are disembarking at the festival.

Why do my favorite artists clash on different stages? Because there are 4 stages and all positions have to be filled, there will always be clashes and this cannot be helped.
