Northern Kin Camping Info

Northern Kin Camping Info

There will be a team on site, to help you unload your camping gear and settle in your camping pitch. We have two picturesque camp sites:

  • Camp Sites A & B, are both located next each other in the main music site, in our beautiful new location.
  • Camp Site C is close by, in the picturesque grounds of The Castle Park and only a 5 minute shuttle bus ride from the main music arena.
ALL Camp Site A and B ticket-holders will be in the Main Field, and all Site C ticket-holders will be located in Northern Kin's previous home - the Castle Park (our new Site C), as detailed on the map, below, with all the same facilities as Sites A and B - showers, toilet blocks, drinking water, ELSAN waste disposal and 24/7 security.
Those customers camped on Camp Site C will be able to access the new main field using a free shuttle bus which will run continuously, every 15 minutes, at all hours of the day, across the festival weekend, taking you from the entrance of your campsite to the entrance of the fantastic new Main Music Field. This bus will also stop in Stanhope Market Place on every trip for anyone who wants to use the shops, pubs, or facilities within Stanhope Village, at any time. You just jump on the shuttle bus running all day, every day, and you'll be dropped off in the Main Music Field in 5 minutes and can travel back and forth between the camp and music sites, at your leisure.

See the map here for camp site locations. All camp sites have will have drinking water supply, 24/7 security, toilets, showers and ELSAN waste disposal and each site has 3 camping sections for:

1) Motorhomes/Caravans/Camper Vans/Live-In Vehicles

2) Tents

3) Disabled Camping (Blue Badge holders).

Dogs

Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a lead at all times, with any fouling picked up and disposed of in the appropriate area. If your dog shows any signs of distress when near the music area please remove them for their welfare.

Open Fires/Barbeques

We want people to enjoy their time at Northern Kin, to the fullest, and that means great camping facilities, but we must balance this against safety requirements and good practice.  To that end, our advice on BBQs, Camping Stoves and Fires is set out below:

  • Open fires are permitted only in fireproof containers clearly raised from the ground (fire pits etc) and should only be used when supervised by persons sober and sensible.
  • BBQs are permitted only when clearly raised from the ground (fire pits etc) and should only be used when supervised by persons sober and sensible.
  • Camping Stoves are permitted, and we wholeheartedly encourage people to use either solid or liquid fuelled options which are not only much safer but more environmentally friendly too.
  • If you use a gas canister supplied stove (butane etc) please ensure that you bring only the minimum amount of gas required for your stay and both always use and store these items appropriately.
  • All fires / stoves must always be used an appropriate distance from any tents.  At least 1m is essential and over 2m for any form of open fire or BBQ.
  • Security will prevent any improper use of fires, BBQs or stoves and person who fail to follow these basic safety steps risk their items being seized and/or being ejected from the Festival.

Please enjoy, but do so sensibly and safely, thank you.

Campers please note

  • If you have camping tickets and would like to camp near to friends, please try to ensure you enter the site all together, as camping plots will be filled up sequentially.
  • There is no designated meeting area inside the site, so if you want to camp together, simply advise the marshals and, where possible, they’ll organise to reserve the camping space next to you, to be kept for your mates, for when they arrive.
  • Please note, live-in vehicles such as campers, caravans, motorhomes, etc, will not be able to pitch up in the Tents section for safety reasons.
  • The Disabled Camping section is located closest to the music entertainment area for ease of access, and is for Blue Badge holders only.
  • If you have any other specific camping requirements or queries, please email us at info@northernkinfestival.co.uk or via our Contact page and we will do everything we can to help you. Also note that camping tickets will not be available on the gate - camping is pre-sale only.
