Tell Me . . .

Covid - 19

We are taking Covid very seriously and we ask that you do too. We have designed the site to facilitate this, but we ask that you be responsible for social distancing and personal hygiene. For further information on measures we are taking please see our COVID-19 Guidelines and Policy.

ALSO 2020 - Ask Us Anything

We are running an ‘Ask US Anything’ Zoom call on 11th August at 8pm, giving you an opportunity to put your questions to the team live.

To join, use this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81125629578?pwd=RldDdTRMMHR5aG8xWFNBNHZMMVNPZz09.

Please email in any questions in advance to info@also-festival.com.

Can we stay over on Sunday night?

Whilst the festival officially closes at 8pm on Sunday, if you would like to stay over till the following morning please email your request to info@also-festival.com. It will be at the festivals discretion and at your own risk.

What’s included in the Hippy Heights Hotel Bell Tent?

The 4m luxury, quality cotton canvas bell tents come furnished with comfy memory foam mattresses, colourful rugs, a mirror, cotton throws, cushions, Solar fairy lights, a low table and battery lamp making ideal off-grid guest accommodation.

Where do I find my tickets?

Your tickets are automatically sent to the email address on your Paypal account or email on your credit card as soon as they are bought.  We will have a record of what you have bought but if you are able to print out – great – it does save time or mean we’re not relying on technology. 

If you’ve lost your tickets, have changed emails, or deleted them, don’t worry we will be able to retrieve – however this can take a bit of time as we get closer to the festival. 

How do I get there?

We are in a wild site which is great but it does mean there is very little signage on the roads surrounding ALSO and there is a limit to how much signage we can put in place, so we recommend having those directions downloaded, and to hand.

Also Festival can be put in to Sat Nav. 

The ALSO site

The Also Festival programme starts at 6pm Friday and then we are open until 8pm on the Sunday Night. If you want to stay over on the Sunday night, please email info@also-festival.com. This will be at the festivals discretion and at your own risk.

The Also Festival site is completely wild – this is incredible for lots of reasons including being close to such a range of natural wildlife, for being able to spend a weekend in nature, for your mental health, for your well-being, and for your enjoyment. It’s not good for heels.

What facilities are there?

ALSO is a very small but upmarket festival and has toilets to match.

Because of Covid 19 restrictions, we are unable to provide showers this year. 

We do not have an ATM on site, but cards are accepted across site.

We do not have WiFi on site, but 4G reception is good, depending on provider.

Camping

We have 50 acres of grounds to camp in, so please do not pitch your tent under trees.

Due to COVID-19 measures, you must position your tent 10m away from others. The only exception being the adjacent tent belongs to somebody in your COVID secure bubble.

We do not allow open fires.

Campervans

We love Campervans (including caravans and motorhomes) and there is a place for them which is on the main site. You will need a Campervan Pass to park there. If you’ve purchased a Campervan Pass (or a carpass) you will need to access ALSO via our Production Entrance. Directions to this gate are indicated on the map supplied with your tickets.

Due to COVID-19 measures, you must camp 10m away from other campervans and tents.

 

I don't want to camp, is there a hotel?

Mercure Warwickshire Walton Hall, a 4 Star Hotel and Spa, is next door to the site, however, we are in 50 acres and they are in 70 so it is a 10-minute drive away (or half an hour over wild ground for any hikers).

Are cars allowed on site?

There are no unregistered cars allowed on site at ALSO. The main car park is at the top of the site and the walk down to the main site is a few minutes.

We offer a car pass ticket which allow cars to park next to where you camp - car passes can be purchased here. Access to this area is via the production entrance. Directions to this gate are indicated on the map supplied with your tickets.

Is there free parking?

There is free parking in the main carpark, and your tickets come with directions and a map.    

Are there any shuttles or buses? How much are taxis? Where is the nearest station?

The nearest station is Leamington Spa, there are great advance tickets on the train if anyone's based in London. There are no shuttle buses available but taxis to and from the station should be around £18. We will have taxi numbers at information but we really recommend pre-booking if you intend to leave from the festival on the Sunday because this is a remote site and we don't want you to have to wait around.

Can I get a refund on my ticket?

We don’t currently offer refunds but understand plans can change. A ticket can be transferred to another name (this can be done up to a week in advance).

Can I get a refund on a workshop?

If you are able to, please buy all tickets for any workshops you would like to do in advance via the website. If you do not have PayPal, you can find out which workshops still have tickets and buy tickets at the info tent in festival.   Apologies, we are unable to offer refunds for workshops, and once the festival is underway please take any questions to the info tent.

Can we bring food and alcohol?

We do our best to cater to every need for all our visitors. Only alcohol bought from festival bars can be drunk on the main licensed site, and like many festival sites in farmland, we cannot have any glass brought on site.

What extra costs are there?

There is no charge to use the main car park at the top of the site.

We have a number of paid workshops which can be booked on designed to go deeper into the subject or to have a go at trying the subject out and can be booked on via the experiences page. We aim to make the workshops a real chance to have a go at something unusual, and the chance to explore the pleasures of food and drink a little bit more. 

Hayfever and Hot Weather.

If you suffer from hay fever or allergies, we highly recommend you bring antihistamines for those high pollen count days.

As we are on our way to being plastic free, we will have limited plastic bottles of water for sale on site, but we do have two water points on site and reusable ALSO water canteens available to purchase. If it's going to be a hot weekend, so please do take precautions and make sure to bring sunscreen.

Can we bring dogs to the festival?

As much as we love our furry friends, the land really belongs to the sheep so the farmer says no dogs on site.

Do you know what the start and finish time of the acts is likely to be?

We open the site from 12pm on Friday 28th August with programming starting from around 6pm on the Friday evening and beginning around 8am on Saturday and Sunday.

Things wrap up at around 6pm on Sunday.
