To stay in the family campsite, visitors will need to have purchased the family camping tickets.
Certain acts performing over the weekend will be unsuitable for children, films shown in the film and music arena may be classified as 15 or 18, the cabaret arena will contain nudity and the comedy arena will contain swearing.
A selection of tempting food will be available to purchase over the weekend from vendors such as Fundi, which offers wood-fired pizza, Petare which will bring a Venezuelan food experience to the festival and Babek which takes the humble kebab and turns it up a notch.
