What is the Greenfield campsite?

We’ve launched our Greenfield Eco Campsite, so that like-minded souls who want to protect the environment, say no to single use plastic, be part of our daily beach cleans and work with us to shape our sustainability plans can camp together.

Spaces will be first come, first served for those who agree to and sign  our eco pledge – please note, signing up to the pledge does not guarantee your space, as spaces are limited. We will contact you with confirmation before the festival.

Our eco pledge:

  • I will take my tent home at the end of the festival
  • I will limit my impact on the environment by car-sharing or taking public transport to the festival
  • I will use a reusable water bottle (and a reusable cup at the bars)
  • I will take responsibility for any waste I produce
  • I will leave no trace
  • I will recycle what I can and take the rest of my rubbish to the litter bond exchange.
  • I will respect other eco campers
  • I will have fun, dance, surf and explore the festival whilst being conscious of the beautiful Cornish surroundings
Do you have a Family campsite?

More info coming soon

Can I bring a cooker?

For fire safety reasons, we don’t allow cooking in the campsites. Please don’t bring a camping stove, cooker or BBQ.
