Campsite Information

With plenty of camping and accommodation options available, you can completely customise your Bloodstock 2016 experience! So, whether you'll be kipping in your old faithful tent, staying in an awesome pre-pitched tent or a luxurious Podpad, there are a few things you'll need to know: 
- Each of the 5 campsites have a designated information hub, where the helpful staff can assist you with any queries you may have. 
- Shower facilities are located in the Midgard campsite and toilet facilities are available in all 5 campsites and the arena area. 
- Worried about leaving your valuables in your tent? Fear not! Spaces on the secure storage truck are available throughout the weekend for a small fee. 
- Hate the taste of warm beer? This year, you can buy a crate of pre-chilled beer from the campsite at a much lower cost than in the arena!
- Drinking water and phone charging points will be available at various locations throughout the campsite and arena.
