When are the gates open?

Friday 14 September 17.00 – 21.00
Saturday 15 September 12.00 – 22.00
Sunday 16 September 12.00 – 22.00

The last admission on each day will be at 9.30 pm.

What do I do when I arrive?

Please make your way to the ticket exchange on arrival where you will exchange your bar-coded ticket for a wristband.

What do I need to bring with me?

If you have a print at home ticket, please print this out and bring it along with you, if you have purchased a physical ticket just bring this along.

You will also need to bring proof of age if you wish to buy alcohol from the bars as we operate a challenge 25 policy. It is illegal to purchase alcohol if you are under 18, or on behalf of someone under the age of 18. Anyone found breaking this law will be ejected from the Festival.

Please don’t bring with you professional cameras or recording equipment.

Can I come and go as I please?

Yes, although we will provide facilities such as toilets, drinks and food on site.

Will there be any seating?

There will be seating in areas around our food outlets but we can’t let you bring your own. Picnic blankets and rugs are fine but please leave tents, gazebos, tables and chairs at home and definitely no three piece suites.

Can I bring my dog?

We’re afraid not, no animals will be allowed on site apart from guide/assistance dogs.

Can I bring my own food or drink?

Sadly not, all food and drink consumed on site must be purchased on site. Bag searches will be made at the entrance to the site.

Only baby milk, food for children and for those with special needs can be brought in to the festival.

I’m under 18, can I come on my own?

Unfortunately not, we can’t admit anyone under 18 without an accompanying parent or guardian.


Submit your band for consideration

In programming Head for the Hills we look to our core values and hope to produce something unique, amazing, high quality and worthwhile. We are not Glastonbury. We're not even Green Man. We're definitely not V Festival. They are all great in their own way but we are something different.
