It has been fantastic to see the footprint of the Armada Festival growing year on year since we began the event back in 2013. Back then we had no camping at all, just one small registration tent in a car park and just the beach and sea to enjoy. But each year since the festival has grown and the space needed for everyone’s campervans and tents has grown with it. Last year these tickets sold out, and even with the space we had been allocated there were some challenges with the demand – so this year the council have kindly allowed us to expand the festival footprint once again, opening up new camp site areas and and providing more car park space for campervans.
If you know the Hayling area well, the festival has now been allocated the entire area from CBK beach, right up to the fairground.
Despite the additional space, we have already sold over half of the available camping and campervan tickets – so if you planning on joining us for the Armada this year, please don’t miss out and get your camping tickets asap! Also new this year is a Campervan Quiet Zone for those that don’t want to be disturbed by any late night revellers, so make sure you tick this box if you want to be away from the action for a good nights sleep.
And if you don’t own camping equipment, or just want to travel light – we have also partnered up with Camp Light who can deliver, set up and take down a tent for you of any size, and add sleeping mats and sleeping bags as well. Just buy your camping pass from us, and order your tent and gear with them! Simple. Check them out here.
Campers can also expect a new morning breakfast and coffee service this year, served from the heart of the campsite. There is even talk of delivery to your tent or campervan…
As always – if you want to camp together, please arrive together, its a simple as that. Its impossible to cordon off or reserve areas as we always fill camping areas form the front of the festival back (unless you reserve the quiet zone). The same goes for campervans, so to get a spot with all your mates, just arrive around the same time.
To get the full Armada experience, you really do need to make a weekend of it, so book your camping tickets today and we will see you all down at Hayling Island on the 22-24th June!
