Shindig Tickets

Shindig Weekender 2017

We are pleased to announce GILCOMBE FARM, BRUTON, SOMERSET, BA10 0QE as our location again this year. And we want to leave it as we found it so all Shindig Ticket holders are asked to Leave No Trace.
As you probably know by now a Shindig is an intimate gathering often involving music and drinks and lots of fun (but also a few rules).

We will open the gates for entry at 3pm on Friday 26th May & close them at 10pm that night (SO NO ENTRY AFTER 10pm).

Entertainment is from 5pm, loud music ends at 3am.

The gate will re-open for entry on Saturday 10am - 8pm.
Leaving time for everyone is before 3pm Monday when the cows want their fields back.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We have card machines at the main bars and will do cash back, but make sure you bring enough cash to get you through 3 days!

Getting There

V Cars 01225 464646 (Bath) or Bristol 0117 940 9000 (Bristol)

PICK UP & DROP OFF
There will be a pickup/drop off zone at the main car park. Anyone wishing to be dropped off or picked up from Shindig MUST go to this point.

WRISTBAND COLLECTION
All ticket holders will need to get a wristband, please park your car or campervan then head to the CHECK IN office. No one can enter the site without a wristband and there will be checks on gates and venues during the weekend, any non banded people will be asked to leave and escorted from the site.


CAR SHARING
We encourage car shares, feel free to use the Facebook event page to join up with others in your area. With the average 100 mile car journey leading to over 20kg of CO2 being produced, you have the potential to reduce the festival’s carbon footprint considerably. It’s also a fun way to travel and reduces congestion on route to the event.

Onsite Rules

It’s a real Shindig, so make sure you have plenty of fun, but please follow a few simple members rules to ensure everyone is a happy camper:
1) Because of the fire risk, no open fires, fire pits or tinfoil barbeques are allowed on site. Proper camping stoves or barbecues on legs are fine but please be careful.

2) No glass bottles are allowed on any part of the site (including the camping areas). All glass bottles will be taken from you at the gate, decant them before you arrive.

3) Although you’re welcome to bring a personal stash of alcohol into the campsites you will not be able to bring booze into the entertainment areas where there are licensed bars.

4) All your needs will be catered for with a very high standard of reasonably priced food and drink so there is no need for you to bring anything of your own, but you can if you want to.

5) No sound systems, amplified music, ghetto blasters, electric guitars, drums etc…are allowed on site. So bring your headphones and please respect your fellow campers, even if they do snore heavily throughout the night.

6) Shindig is held on a lovely farm, but it is a working farm, if you see ‘KEEP OUT’ signs please do so. Please do not wander outside the event area.

7) Children on site are the responsibility of their parents so please look out for yours.

 

See full Terms & Conditions on our website www.shindig-events.co.uk

Shindig has separate areas for General Camping, Family Camping and Live-in Vehicle Camping - all equipped with toilets, fresh water taps and rubbish and recycling facilities.

Amplified music will stop at 3am across the site to respect families and the farms neighbours, so we will lay on fun stuff to do without loud music after that time. We start music at midday both days so get your raving fix in early.

Please note that all campsites close and must be empty by 3pm on the Monday 29th May following the event, the cows need their field back! We will supply a recycling bag on arrival. Please be a happy camper and clean up after yourself to leave our beautiful site as near as possible to how you found it. Leaving tents/airbeds/people behind is not big or clever.

Remember LEAVE NO TRACE!

Eating & Drinking

At Shindig Weekender, all your needs will be catered for with a very high standard of reasonably priced food and drink so there is no need for you to bring anything of your own, unless you want to.

Some seriously sexy, award-winning street food is going to be on offer this year, all of which has been carefully curated by Love Food Festival to help you get the best out of the weekend. For example, you can choose the perfect dancing fuel, an early-morning pick me up, a hangover remedy, not to mention every kind of shake, wrap and roll. All of the food will be sourced as locally as possible (hell, some of it’s coming from Gilcombe farm itself) and will all be a minimum of free range and mostly organic.

And there is no shortage of choice when it comes to drinks! We have the Tutti Frutti Beach Bar, Stardust Discotheque, the SS Nautylicious and Dig Inn open all day and evening and the Ghetto Funk nightclub until 3am. They are reasonably priced and have a large selection of quality drinks. Beer & cider are draught (on tap) not cans. As a small event we depend on the bars as a way to fund the event, so we ask you to not bring your own alcohol into the entertainment areas & bars.

Bars will be operating a challenge 25 policy, and you may be asked for I.D. Please do not be offended if you are asked to prove your age.

NOTE: This year we have card machines at the main bars and will do cash back, but make sure you bring enough cash to get you through 3 days!

All food stalls will take cash only.

BRING YOUR OWN
It is fine to bring your own food, but please abide by the BBQ rules. You’re also welcome to bring a personal stash of alcohol into the campsites but you will not be able to bring booze into the entertainment areas.
