Where do we check in?

To check in when you arrive at Trabolgan drive to the first security check point. Your names will be checked off the list and you will be given instructions from here. Once you come in the drive to Trabolgan it is very obvious where you check in so don’t worry about that part.


What do we need to bring?

BRING TOWELS! You can bring anything you need for the weekend such as food, drink and definitely don’t forget your togs! Please note that no outside food or drink can be brought into the main area but you may of course consume at your house or camper van. Trabolgan provides bed sheets, blankets, pillows and all household / kitchen items but not towels.


Where do we park?

If you’re staying for the weekend you park right outside your house!! Sunday day ticket holders will have a designated car park.

I’m booking the accommodation but what about my friends who are staying with me?

Much the same as if you were booking an Airbnb or hotel, there is one person who is the lead contact that books the accommodation. You’re splitting the cost between your group. We’ll be in touch with you after booking with more info and to get details about your party.


Are camper vans included with the X2 and X4 sites?

No, vans are not included. These are fully serviced camper van pitches with electricity, water and shower blocks next to them. But it is BYOV!


Can I buy a weekend ticket without accommodation?

Unfortunately not. This is a residents only, self catering event. That means you can bring your own food and drink with you for the weekend but just like other festivals you can’t bring your own into the main area.

You must book a house, apartment or camper van site to attend (van not included / BYOV)

Your weekend ticket and booking fees are included in the price of your accommodation, as is access to the swimming pool, pool parties most of the activities on site. There are some things that Trabolgan run themselves which will be extra but any of the organised festival activities are included.








Is there a shop on site?

Yes there is a shop in the central area that sells all the essentials. There is also a really good Euro Spar in White Gate village.
