CarFest

Join us at the CarFest motoring and music festival

Introducing Chris Evans’ family, music and motoring festival – CarFest! It's packed to the brim with activities for every member of the family, underpinned by a main stage of big artists, celebrity chefs and as the name suggests, plenty of cars. This exciting event is taking place over the summer and we’ll be running a Club Campsite to welcome caravanners, campervanners and motorhomers alike. 

Last year, CarFest raised over £13.5 million for BBC Children in Need. This year, 25% of the profits made will go to UK children’s charities; half of which will go straight to Pudsey Bear’s cause.

• CarFest South - 23 to 25 August 2019 | Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire

What's happening at CarFest?

What ticket options are available?

We offer a weekend campsite at CarFest for anyone bringing their caravans, motorhomes and campervans. Prices are:

  • £165 for your permit (what is this?)
  • £178 adult weekend camping ticket (17yrs +)
  • £50 child weekend camping ticket (6 to 16yrs)

Your weekend camping ticket runs from the Friday to Sunday and includes entry into the festival. 

Early arrival tickets are also available. These give you an extra night at the campsite, which means you get Weekend Camping from Thursday to Sunday, as well as entry to the festival site on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Is the campsite part of the festival?

Yes this is a dedicated CarFest campsite within the festival grounds. You will be pitched in walking distance of the event.

How many tickets are available?

There are limited pitches at each event, for campervans, caravans and motorhomes as an extension to the existing campsite. This sells out fast though so when they’re gone, they’re gone.

What facilities are there?

Your pitch comes with showers, toilets and electric hook up. 

Can I take a tent?

The Club Campsite is reserved for caravans, campervans and motorhomes. CarFest will be selling separate tent camping tickets from 1 May but you must be quick as they sell out fast.

If you don’t have your own caravan or camper, we do offer Motorhome Hire in partnership with Swift Go. They are modern, come in different sizes, and are kitted out with all mod cons. For more information, head over to our sister website, Experience Freedom.

When can I arrive?

  • Festival opens at 12pm on the Friday
  • Club Campsite opens at 7am on the Friday
  • Early arrival ticket holders can arrive at the Club Campsite on the Thursday from 4pm (the day before the festival) so you can arrive early, unpack and relax.

How big are the pitches?

All pitches measure 9m x 6m which is space for one motorhome, campervan or caravan only. Cars will be parked in a dedicated Club Campsite car park within easy access.

Can I bring my dog?

The CarFest festival is a busy place, with a bustling main music stage area, fast moving cars on track and many other live demos and activities. Last year around 50 thousand visitors attended CarFest so for you and your pet's safety, dogs are not allowed at the festival or campsite.
