Site Map & Stage Times

Bars & Water

It's very important to stay hydrated during the hot weather. There are free drinking water points throughout the arena and you can find them next to the toilet blocks. They are all signed as suitable for drinking.

Bars are strictly over 18s and are operating a Challenge 21 policy - if staff think you look under 21 you will be asked for I.D.

Bring a passport, Garda Age Card or Driver’s Licence with you.

Opening Times

Gates open daily at 13:30. The car and coach parks open at 12:30. Bars will be open with the arena and close at 22:00. 

Things To Bring

Make sure you have sun cream on before you go and bring some extra with you. It's going to be very hot.

Also don't leave the house with out your ticket and some cash. While there are ATMs available you don't want to spend the whole day queuing. 

Things Not To Bring

The following items are strictly not allowed inside the festival gates. You'll just delay entry for yourself and others if you try to bring any of these.

Glass, illegal substances, legal highs, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), lazer pens, professional recording equipment (unless you have permission), megaphones, air horns, spray cans, aerosols over 250ml, umbrellas, flag poles, fireworks, flares, lanterns, weapons, animals, sound systems, unsealed soft drink bottles over 500ml, alcohol, food, generators, camping equipment.


Large bags and backpacks will not be allowed in to the festival.

Small bags must be smaller than an A4 page. All people with bags will be searched so if you want to get in quicker, don't bring one. 

There's no cloakroom or storage facilities.

Age Restrictions & I.D.

No unaccompanied under 16’s are allowed on site. All under 16’s require a ticket to the event and must be accompanied by a ticket holding adult, parent or guardian over 18.

If you're over 18 but look younger bring I.D. Acceptable forms of I.D are a passport, a Garda Age Card or a driver’s licence
