Just to ensure you have as incredible a time with us as possible, we’ve compiled everything you need to know in one handy email!
There's also a load of useful information to help you prepare for your visit on our FAQs page here and for details on how to get to the venue, just check the venue page here.
We advise a typical visit to FriendsFest takes approximately 2-3 hours so please plan your day allowing for this amount of time. You can enter the site any time on the day of your booking (within site opening hours) but make sure you are there at least 15 minutes before your "Set Tour" timeslot. Due to the recent wet weather and the fact that the site is predominantly outside on grass, we advise you come prepared and wear suitable footwear.
Manchester ticket holders - The site closes at 8pm (Sun - Wed) and 9:30pm (Thur - Sat). If you have a Set Tour ticket for the evening we suggest coming earlier to visit the other on site activities and completing the Set Tour as your final activity.
You should have pre-selected your timeslot at point of booking, but if for some reason you haven't got a Set Tour ticket drop us a line at email@example.com
We ask that all guests make their way to the Set Tour central marquee (located in the middle of the event site) 15 minutes before their designated Set Tour.
