FAQ's

I'm coming to the Jupiter Rising fest and was wondering if the campsite will have showers and drinking water available?

Each campsite has access to toilets and drinking water, there are shower block’s which are a short walk away from the camping areas.


Do you know timings for when we can arrive on the Friday, when events/performances start, and when things end on the Saturday or Sunday?

The festival opens from 2pm on Friday 26th August. The festival closes at midday on Sunday 28th August, we ask all attendees to be packed away and exiting the site by this time.


My partner and I are vegan – will there be food stall etc at the festival or will we need to bring our own food/camping stove etc?

Yes, we have food providers that cater for vegans, we will also have a corner shop Tent where you can buy snacky food. Unfortunately, we cannot allow cooking stoves, or campfires at Jupiter Rising, this is to protect the landscape.


Is it a kid friendly event or are we better to leave them at home.

Jupiter Rising is completely family friendly, we have a separate quiet camping area for families to stay which is located the furthest away from the arena, and will be programming a series of children’s activities which will be taking place alongside the music.

To Note: We do have late night stages that will be running through to 2am, so please be aware that there will be some noise pollution until this time.


Also I can I check what time it will be on until in the evening/night? is it suitable for children?

I was looking at your Jupiter Rising event, and wondered if you had a programme for the Friday. It’s says there is only tickets left for 3pm the Friday so I was wondering what’s included.

The festival runs from Friday at 3pm until Sunday at noon. Friday night will be a single dance/disco tent with Drag karaoke and feel good sets. Saturday is our busiest day with three stages curated by Lost map records, Night School Records and a late night stage by OH141. Alongside this we will have workshops and events running throughout the day. Sunday will be a winddown day with morning yoga and activities, with a lunchtime departure.

Tickets cover the whole weekend. The 3pm slot on Friday gives you access for the whole weekend, the early bird price is £65 this will raise to £150 as we get closer to the festival.


My husband is a wheelchair user. Wondering about accessible camping pitches and if we could reserve one if possible please.

There are dedicated accessible camping and toilet facilities. Please book a normal ticket and then email eleanor@jupiterartland.org with your ticket number and accessibility needs and she will be in touch directly.


What can and cannot be brought onto the campsite?

You are welcome to bring: your own food and alcohol (as long as they are not in glass bottles); tents; cash (no cash machines at festival); warm sleeping bags and blankets.

You CANNOT bring: pets (guide and assistance dogs only); glass; your own sound or stereo system; drugs or legal highs; fires or barbecue pits; flags or lanterns.


We will be staying in one of the bell tents for the weekend is there places to park beside the tent?

No, parking is limited to our carparking area, Bell tents are a short ten minute walk from the carpark


I was hoping to be able to boil water so that my kids can have porridge pots and pot noodles - but a friend tells me there’s to be no camping stoves, is that correct? Is there anywhere I could get boiled water - if I brought a flask would it be possible to fill it somewhere?

No, we don’t have camping stoves. However, we do have boiling water available at our general store close to the camping and festival circle.


Is there any kind of curfew for travelling out of the site?

We don’t have a curfew leaving the site, but we do ask that people don’t travel in and out unnecessarily for the safety of all attendees. Once the festival has started on Friday evening there will be no access through the front gate, all entry and exit must be from the exit road.


Just a quick question, I can't see anything about bringing your own alcohol into the site, is this permitted? If so I assume there is no glass allowed? Are there any other restrictions?

You are welcome to bring your own alcohol on to site, we do ask that no glass is brought so this must be transferred to a plastic container. Our full list of rules can be found here: http://jupiterrising.art/info/what-to-bring


Where is the family camping as we ended up amongst the general camping last year as we were later to arrive as I need to wait until my son is finished school.

Family Camping is located between live in vehicles and the start of general camping, if you flag this when you arrive our box office team can direct you.

GENERAL CAMPING + LIVE-IN VEHICLES

Located in the paddock and just a stone’s throw away from all amenities, you will be sleeping in the heart of Jupiter Artland's five-star sculpture garden, with views of Charles Jencks' iconic Cells of Life landforms, and Marc Quinn's other-worldly Lovebomb.

The general campsite provides the opportunity for no-fuss camping. Just bring your tent, find your perfect spot and set up, easy. Families are welcome in the general campsite. General camping is included in the cost of your ticket.

The general campsite will be serviced by nearby toilets.

You're welcome to bring your own live-in vehicle on site, provided you book this option in advance and in addition to General admission. A live-in vehicle ticket allows use of a 6m x 4m pitch, that all vehicles and additional structures (e.g. additional tents/gazebos) MUST fit within, otherwise you'll be required to buy multiple live-in vehicle tickets.

Please note there are no electricity or water hook-ups available on the live-in vehicle site.

MEADOW CAMPING

In the unique and serene setting of the wildflower meadow down by the lake, our meadow camping offers comfort and luxury in the form of bell tents available to book for up to four guests.

The Meadow camping area is conveniently located for the main festival area, but follow the festoon lighting to the separate Meadow campsite to find your ready-made bell tent. Perfect for those who want to be able to relax in style at the end of the night.

Tents are 100% cotton canvas, meaning they are waterproof and breathable. Each tent comes fully erected with four camp mattresses, a waterproof carpeted floor, two side tables and electric lighting with a mobile phone charging station close by. The booking cost is per tent which can fit a maximum of four inhabitants. All inhabitants are required to book separate General Admission tickets as well.

The Meadow camping site will be serviced by their own toilets facilities.

To keep the Meadow campsite as a luxury option, there are a limited number of tents available. Please book well in advance.

ACCESSIBLE CAMPING

Accessible camping is located in the meadow, a short distance away from the main stages. An accessible toilet and charging point are provided. To help us prepare, please let us know in advance if you require an accessible camping pitch.

Visitors are welcome to drop bags near the campsite before parking in our allocated accessible car park spaces. Our stewards are also happy to assist with carrying bags and putting up tents.

If you have specific access needs, would like to reserve an accessible camping pitch, or want to apply for a free carer ticket, get in touch at enquiries@jupiterartland.org or call 01506 889900.

Further access information about the site and the programme is available on our Access Page.

SWIMMING

Grab your swimming gear, we're jumping in the Jencks! Take time out to enjoy a refreshing dip in the cool waters of the Cells of Life, a perfect spot to soak up some sun, immerse yourself in nature and see the work of Charles Jencks from a different perspective.

Please swim responsibly. For your own safety, please don't swim at night or after a few drinks.

FAMILIES

Young people are more than welcome to be part of Jupiter Rising and we promote a family-friendly atmosphere at the festival. Part of the general camping area will be set aside for families and there will be artist-led workshops throughout the weekend - and of course the resident Jupiter donkeys to admire!
