From the A1(M) - travelling south

Just before junction 17 you will see an sign for 'Alwalton Business Park, Showground, Chesterton' - this is a minor turning. You can either take this and and after about 400m you will reach Oundle Road, where you turn left and go around the north side of the site to Newcombe Way then right into Dunblane Drive and left into the site, left again and round to gate 14.

 

Alternatively continue to junction 17 and at the large roundabout turn left, continue to the next one and turn left again and left into Newcombe Way then right into Dunblane Drive and left into the site.

From Peterborough

Take Fletton Parkway until you reach Orton Parkway where you turn right, then continue to Newcombe Way where you turn left, then right into Dunblane Drive and left into the site.

Once you reach the site

When you enter the site you will quickly reach a junction. If you are camping and have pre-booked, turn right into the camp site through gate 12. If you are a day visitor, artist or you need to buy a ticket, turn left, follow the road round and turn right into gate 14. Artists should use the left channel, general public use the the right.

Satnav users: please use PE2 6SH to ensure you reach the Showground rather than site administration, and enter through the correct designated gate, which is off Dunblane Drive! This is NOT the one on our flyers, as the site have changed it!

As far as we can work out, if you're camping it's brief.pilots.splash and if you are not camping then it's spot.dull.cases. 

If you're a band then for artists it's crash.lease.factories (which doesn't bode well for anything really!!).

By public transport

Peterborough is well served by trains and there are regular buses that go close to the site (ten minute walk). However, the last bus back to town is before the end of each day's bands, which is probably fairly normal. More details here:

Need a lift? Can offer a lift? 

We are aware that there will always be some people who don't drive who may have difficulty getting to the festival.
