WHAT DOES THE FESTIVAL PASS INCLUDE?

The festival pass includes:

  • all official festival programs

Additional services:

  • festival kitchen – food tickets available on the ticket website
  • Camping space – including toilets and showers, available on the ticket website
  • Day ticket – does not include camping, allows access for one day from 9 am for 24 hours – available on the ticket website

IS THERE FOOD AVAILABLE AT THE FESTIVAL?

Yes. There will be a festival kitchen and bar on site that serves nutritious, locally sourced vegan meals, and we strongly encourage you to buy their food tickets that are available for pre-purchase here.

*Please note that currently this is our only food option for the festival. You need to get your food ticket in advance already before WONDEREST to ensure the kitchen is prepared with enough portions, because as the area is quite remote, it will not be possible to purchase more ingredients once the festival begins. We also strive to minimise food waste and will only purchase the ingredient amounts needed for those who pre-purchased their food.

WHAT ARE THE FESTIVAL FOOD OPTIONS?

Menus include full vegan breakfast and dinner for the duration of the festival.

Food tickets are available separately on the ticket website.

TICKETS AND WRISTBANDS

Tickets are issued as an E-Ticket, via email. If you have any issue in finding your E-Ticket, please contact the TIXA website.

Bring your festival ticket with you to the festival where it will be exchanged for a wristband.
We can also scan your ticket on a mobile phone providing the bar code is clearly visible.
The same applies for food tickets.

DO I HAVE TO CAMP?

No. Whilst we offer camping passes and tickets and encourage all participants to share the experience, we leave the choice open to you to choose your preferred accommodation during the festival. So if camping isn’t your thing then feel free to look around for other options in the area or to travel up each day.
Larger than 4-person tents and gazebos are not allowed on our campsite.

CAN I BRING A CAMPERVAN?

Yes, but only in the designated parking. Note that there are no facilities provided outside the festival area. There will be no extra campervan facilities like electricity, only an area designated for parking. Those staying in the campervan are also required to buy camping tickets to use the showers, toilets, and water blocks.

CAN I BRING A MOTORCYCLE?

Yes. Note that all vehicles are strictly confined to the designated parking area. These include motorcycles, cars, campervans, and any other motorised vehicle.

WILL THERE BE LOCKERS / A SAFE TO LOCK MY STUFF AWAY?

No. We advise all visitors to keep their personal possessions with their person at all times. The festival does not accept any responsibility for lost or misplaced items.

ARE CHILDREN WELCOME AT THE FESTIVAL?

Of course! We are a family-friendly festival so feel welcome to bring the kids along. Tickets for children under 12 are FREE with a paying adult and can be purchased on our ticketing site alongside the normal festival passes.

IS THERE AN AGE RESTRICTION?

Under-16’s must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.

ARE BBQS OR BONFIRES ALLOWED?

No BBQ’s are allowed in the campsite. Bonfires and any form of open fire, including Gas Powered BBQ, Spirit Burners or Cookers are strictly prohibited anywhere on the festival site with the exception of bonfires organised by festival staff.

CAN I BRING MY DOG?

You can bring your dog under the terms that you take full responsibility for the safety of the dog, other farm animals and festival goers. Note that the village has houses with dogs near the festival location which might cause conflict with other dogs. There are also farm animals in the vicinity of the campsite. All farm animals in the local area should be left alone throughout the weekend.

IS THERE WATER AVAILABLE?

Fresh tap water will be available free of charge from taps in the campsite and festival area. For drinking, we advise that you bring a reusable water bottle or cup to align with our zero waste policies.

IS THERE A CASHPOINT ON SITE?

No. Note that there are no ATMs in the vicinity of the festival area.

ARE THERE SHOWERS ON SITE?

Yes, there are showers available on the campsite.

WILL IT BE MUDDY?

The majority of the festival area is on a grassy field, including the Main Stage and campsite area, as well as the carpark. All of these areas are open to the elements. So should we have a rainy summer, be prepared for a bit of mud. If it rains we will do everything we can to keep things comfortable, but we can’t promise your white t-shirt will leave the same colour it arrived.

CAN I SELL MY TICKET?

We don’t encourage or facilitate the resale of tickets. Please exercise extreme caution when buying or selling tickets on third party websites or from individuals.

CAN I VOLUNTEER AT WONDEREST?

Yes you can! We couldn’t put on WONDEREST without your help. If you would like to volunteer at this year’s festival, send an email over to
volunteers@wonderestfestival.com

CAN I PLAY AT WONDEREST?

We hand-pick our limited number of artists for a full residency for each year and we don’t take outside applications for that, but feel free to apply for our Artist Call on Instagram when we announce it, by sending your EPK and best live music material at
performing@wonderestfestival.com

CAN I TRADE AT WONDEREST?

Applications for traders for the Festival are open throughout the year. Please send over some photos of your stall, along with a menu or price list, to
contact@wonderestfestival.com and we will be in touch if we are interested in hearing more from you.

CAN I TRADE AT WONDEREST?

We are very much planning to go ahead with the originally planned dates between 7-10 July 2022. In case the virus situation hinders our plan, we will communicate that immediately. We are very optimistic given our small size, and being in mid-summer. If we are obliged to cancel the festival for 2022, all festival passes will remain valid for 2023, as well as refund options.

CAN I TRADE AT WONDEREST?

Bring your own reusable bowl, mug, water bottle and cutlery with you.
Travel with others. It is not only better for Mother Earth but also a cheaper and more fun opportunity to connect with fellow human beings.
Avoid single-use items and only pack things you really need.

WILL THERE BE RECYCLING BINS ON SITE?

We operate with a “Leave no trace” policy. There won’t be a possibility to dispose of communal garbage on the festival site. However, we will provide paper recycling bins. All other waste will have to be taken care of individually – if you bring/acquire communal/plastic waste, please take it with you when you leave, and dispose of it at the nearest station.
