Coming Soon - BOOKATENT Pre-pitched Tents:
We all know how annoying it can be to set up a tent… Why not arrive at Festival One to your tent pitched and stretcher/air bed set up for the weekend? The canvas tents sleep two to four people, have standing room, space for belongings and an awning. When it comes time to pack up, let us do it for you! We only ask that all belongings are removed and any rubbish is put in the available bins before you depart.
All bookings will be located in a designated area on site. A map will be available soon.

Coming Soon - Caravan, Motorhome and Rooftop Tent Sites:
This is important as these sites sell really fast. Caravan sites are for those wanting their own slice of festival reserved over the weekend. Please come as self-contained as possible. That’s with solar panels, batteries, torches, water (no generators please), etc. If you can be self-contained with solar panels there’s no need to purchase in the powered section. The size options are:
Arkansas Powered section:
Super Size 5.5 x 16m
Standard Size 5.5 x 8m
North Dakota Non Powered section:
Super Size 5.5 x 16m
Standard Size 5.5 x 8m
If you have a small caravan that doesn’t take up much space you’re welcome to pitch a small tent within your allocated caravan site.
Roof top tent sites need to be booked as a caravan site. We aren’t permitted to allow people to camp inside their vehicles in the carpark.
Make sure you measure your space beforehand so you’re not disappointed.
Food & Retail Vendors:
Over the years we’ve had some amazing food and retail vendors colour festival. For 2022 you’ll be drooling over all the tasty breakfast, lunch and dinner food stalls, plus retailers to purchase your 2022 memorabilia, cool new threads and accessories.
