Shipwrecked Festival officially kicks off at 12pm on Friday the 12th of February and ends on Sunday the 14th of February at 6pm.


The gates will be open between the hours of 10am until 10pm on Friday, 8am until 10pm on Saturday and 8am until 2pm on Sunday.

You cannot enter or exit the event site outside these hours. If you cannot avoid to arrive later, please get in touch at least 24 hours prior via

The campsite closes on Sunday at 8pm. This means you are required to be packed up and leave by this time. Please ensure you or your driver has had plenty of rest and is well prepared for the drive home.

Pass-outs are permitted during gate opening hours. You’ll receive a token on your way out. To re-enter you must present your token and festival wristband.


All tickets include camping in the tent camping area. The campsite is around 500 meters from the festival site. You’re welcome to bring your pushbike for the campsite and walkway to the festival, but please park it at the entrance and don’t drive on the festival site. Make sure you’ve got a night light and if you always want to know where it is – don’t forget a lock!


If you wish to bring a vehicle to Shipwrecked – including cars, vans, campers, caravans and buses – you’ll need to purchase either a Vehicle Parking Pass or a Vehicle Camping Pass. The cost of this goes towards upgrading the road in and out of the festival grounds – this is good for us and good for you!


With this pass, your vehicle is allowed ONLY in the car park.

This means you will park your car and make your way to the campsite with a walk of around 500 meters. No camping is permitted in the car park. You will be able to leave and return to the car park during the festival during gate opening hours.


With this pass, your vehicle will be allowed to enter and stay at the campsite in the allocated vehicle area. You may sleep in your vehicle or camp next to your car.

If you wish to stay in a caravan, your car must be parked in the car park after dropping off the caravan. Camping vehicles are not to be moved once parked up unless you intend to leave the festival early – this is only to be done during daylight hours.

Tent camping is limited to two tents per car.

Vehicle camping passes are limited.


Wayver is our new cashless payment system. You will receive a Wayver card & lanyard at the gate. Simply visit the Wayver cash point to top up your card with cash, debit or credit card and present it when making purchases at the bars, food and market stalls. Safe your card code on your phone, just in case it gets lost. Refunds can be made on site or up to 2 weeks after the festival via
