Although the construction phase of the A12 flood defence work at Blythburgh is due to be completed on Wednesday, organisers Festival Republic are asking festival goers to respect the environment and residents by putting public transport options in place in an attempt to encourage revellers to leave their cars at home.

Bike racks on site will be available for cyclists inside the walled garden accessed via the green gate on the A145. Day ticket holders arriving by bike should use the day entrance on the A12 to get onto site nearest to the day ticket holder entrance where they can lock up their bikes on the fencing.

As space is limited on trains, Greater Anglia have requested that festival goers don’t bring their bikes.

Those travelling by train can get a festival transfer bus from Diss or Halesworth station.

Border Bus is running a special bus from Southwold to Latitude via Reydon and Wangford throughout the day returning after 11pm each night.

The company, along with National Express and See Coaches, are offering services to and from the festival.
