Tickets for DorsetFest 2024 will be released shortly so follow our social media for updates.
By purchasing tickets you agree to our full T&Cs listed below. Please note that you will not be permitted to carry or consume your own alcohol at the festival site. Campers may consume their own alcohol at the campsite. Please drink responsibly.

Weekend (Not camping)
Tent prices coming soon
Prices include a pitch for 1 tent/campervan for up to 5 people for the stated date only. Please note that this does not include entry to the festival. These tickets will need to be purchased separately. This has not increased the price of tickets but makes it easier for our crew to process.
Due to Dorset County Council regulations, we are unable to permit personal alcohol or glass bottles to be brought into the festival area. We ask that you support our bar from which all money goes to charity. Campers may bring their own alcohol which can be consumed in the camping field only. Thank you for your understanding.
At DorsetFest we want everyone to have a great time, but in order to ensure that alcohol is served appropriately, we will be running a Challenge 25 approach where anyone who is lucky enough to look under 25 will be asked to produce a suitable photo id before they are served (or if they are seen drinking alcohol on-site). If you think this might affect you, please bring a suitable form of id to avoid any misunderstandings. Please also note that as part of this approach, only alcohol purchased on-site can be consumed at the festival. To ensure this, we may ask you to allow us to inspect your bags and ask for proof of purchase. If refused then we reserve the right to refuse entry or ask you to leave and no refunds will be given.
Please be aware that by entering the festival you are likely to be photographed/videod and that you consent to your photograph, and or any likeness being used, without any compensation, for use in any and all media and you release DorsetFest from any liability whatsoever of any nature. If you do not wish to be photographed please let the photographer know.
DorsetFest will be providing children's entertainment as safely as possible, but children remain the responsibility of their parents/ gaurdians and should be supervised at all times. This is an outdoor event on a working farm with a lot of people and it is the parent's responsibility to ensure their child is safe. In the event of any problems or concerns on the day, please raise the issue with one of the DorsetFest team.
The festival is a short distance from the car park, but as the festival is on the side of Bulbarrow Hill there are some slopes to negotiate and the ground can be uneven. We will also do whatever we can to ensure that any disabled person can enjoy DorsetFest including providing transport between the two. However, it should be noted that the event is outdoors and there are elements that we cannot control. Since being founded in 2014 we have been successful in ensuring disabled access, but if you have any specific questions, please feel free to contact us via the website links or simply make your requirements known on the day.
DorsetFest welcomes dogs and responsible owners and freshwater is available on site. We do request that owners keep their dogs under control at all times and clean up after them as necessary.
DorsetFest is based on a working farm so to avoid risk to sheep and ponies after the event, please can you place all litter in the bins provided. We would be grateful if campers could take all of their rubbish home.
Out Of Bounds
As the festival takes place on a working farm, there are hazards which may not be immediately obvious, but require those areas to be fenced off. These areas will be clearly marked on the day and for your own safety, please ensure that you or any children do not go beyond the markers.
To help reduce the spread of Covid-19 we ask that you do not attend the festival if you have tested positive in the last 7 days. Any changes in government guidelines that require further restrictions and amendments will supersede the DorsetFest guidelines.
These conditions are in place to try and ensure that everyone at DorsetFest has a great time and remains safe. Failure to follow these, or if we come across any anti-social behavior, may result in individuals being asked to leave the festival at the organiser's discretion. In that event, there will be no refunds.
