Did you know that 80% of the carbon emissions generated by festivals are due to travel? We want to make Primadonna as green as we can, so we’re partnering with Lift Share so you can offer and accept lifts with other ticketholders (or locals), saving on the number of cars making the journey. 

To see if this option will work for you, join the Festival Liftshare community – part of the Liftshare network (not just Scroll down to the bottom and join the main Festival Liftshare community, where you can offer or search for a lift to Primadonna. 

Liftshare is free-to-use, you can arrange to share costs, and you can post your journey as either a passenger, driver or both.

Have a look and see if it will work for you.

Private hire vehicles also are identified from an external plate to the rear and an internal plate on the windscreen. The driver will also have a badge on his/her person.

Please ensure you ask the fare to be charged when you make the booking, if you are happy to accept that charge you have entered into a contract and it cannot be altered when you are collected.

Are you camping?

If you’ve booked a camping pass for a tent, please arrive at our main entrance where one of the brilliant team will welcome you and direct you up to the camping field. Cars are not allowed on site so please use local public car parks if arriving by car.  We will have trolleys available for use from the entrance to help you in taking your tents and equipment up to the top field.

If you’ve booked a campervan pass, please make your way to the Lockington Road entrance to the Food Museum (use IP14 1BQ for satnav – the entrance is at the very end of the road) where one of the brilliant team will let you in directly to the camping field. If no one is on the gate when you arrive, it’s because our stewards are busy siting campers like you, so please be patient.  If you’re arriving later than planned, you can call the number on the gate sign so that you can be buzzed in. Parking for campervans / caravans is directly ahead and then to the left.

More information on camping can be found in our festival FAQs.
