By far the best way to enjoy all the Armada Festival has to offer is to make a long weekend of it! After selling out last year, the event campsite and campervan areas have been extended, and there is also a quiet zone if this suits your needs.
Camping & Campervan Tickets
Camping and campervan tickets are for the whole weekend (Friday 11am to Sunday 8pm) and are staggered in price based on the size of your tent and numbers coming. Your camping ticket also includes one car parking pass in the long stay car park. Please note – your camping ticket does not include access to the kitesurfing activities, you need a separate ticket for kitesurfing. Of course you don’t need to be a kitesurfer to buy a camping pass – if you just fancy coming down to the festival with your friends and your tent or campervan and getting involved, go for it!
To make best use of the limited space, we have had to organise different zones for campervans, XL campervans, tents and campervans with awnings (see layout below). If you want to be one of these zones together i.e as a group of campervans or a group of tents etc – you need to arrive together! It’s not possible to reserve space for your group, we have to fill the zones as people arrive. Thank you for your understanding!
Due to Fire Safety regulations awnings are only allowed in the campervan with awning area.
Please note: BBQ’s and gas cookers are prohibited in the campervan and camping area due to fire risks. You will however be able to have a BBQ and use a gas cooker on the beach in the designated area. Please also be aware that the campsite is simply an area of grass behind the beach and there are only limited showers at the public toilet block at the entrance to the event.
Want to camp but don’t have a tent?
Camplight is a unique Pre-Pitched campsite within the Bestival general campsite! All tents that are available for rent are 100% salvaged from tents that have sadly been abandoned at past UK events. All tents have been professional fixed and restored and feel brand-new!
Everything is ready for your arrival and they offer furnishings and extras in a wonderful range of Festival Tents.
Benefits include: No stress in carrying heavy camping equipment – travel light, eco friendly and cheaply and arrive to have your pitched tent ready and waiting! You’ll also help save the environment as all Camplight tents have been salvaged and professionally restored. Camplight functions as a little community – join Kieran and his team for a cup of tea and make new friends! And at the end of the event, just walk away and Camplight will do the rest.
