Gone Wild Info

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Your weekend camping ticket includes entrance into Gone Wild Festival from Thursday 25th August until Sunday 28th August. Your ticket also includes four nights camping in the festivals general campsite.

In addition there LOADS of activities workshops and talks within your ticket! It is important to note that while there’s SO MUCH TO DO within your ticket price, we can’t guarantee you’ll get to do everything.

There are two types of activity. There are the ones included in your ticket price and paid premium activities.

The ones included in your ticket will be done on a walk-up system. This worked really well last year and gave people the flexibility to enjoy the festival at their own leisure. Like any event there will be queues at busy times of the day, but these do move quickly. If you’re super organised and get into the arena when it opens, you’ll avoid this.

The paid premium activities will go on sale in March. These will be pre-booked and paid for prior to the event. These proved VERY popular last year and we’re going to have lots more for 2022!

If you have purchased tickets you can download your e-ticket from your confirmation email. You will then exchange your e-ticket for your cashless wristband when you arrive at the festival during the following times:

  • Thursday 0800hrs – 2100hrs
  • Friday 0800hrs – 2100hrs
  • Saturday 0700hrs – 1200hrs

Once you have your wristband you can come and go as you please outside of these times.

In the general campsite there is no restriction on tent size, but you must plan to be self sufficient.

This is a camping upgrade that proved very popular in 2021. When you arrive you’ll have a 5x5m piece of Devon waiting for you, it works brilliantly for groups that arrive at different times, or for people that arrive late at night.

If you want to be next to your friends, then one person must book multiple pitches.

Your tent must fit within the 5x5m pitch.

This is an upgrade, there will definitely be space in the general campsite if you choose not to buy this option.

As a family friendly festival, all of our campsites cater to families.

All car parks, campsites and the ticket exchange will be open from 8am Thursday 25th August.
