There is a possibility that the sound pressure may exceed 96dB. Prolonged exposure to loud noise can affect your hearing.

There is a hearing loop at the Accessible check-in point, the location of this will be made clear in the Accessibility information provided to you upon request.

Please respect our neighbours by arriving and leaving peacefully and quietly. Do not drop litter and please use the portable toilets provided.

Please note that strobe effects may be used at the event. There will be no specific announcements prior to the use of strobes and lasers. Strobe flicker rates will be at or below 4 flashes per second.

Our on-site medical services provide comprehensive medical advice and treatment facilities and are very flexible in meeting specific needs. The location of these services will be available on the maps in your info pack and on site.

All of the tented stages at Citadel have a maximum capacity that, by law, we cannot exceed. If you want to see a particular artist, please arrive early to the stage to avoid disappointment. Once the tents have reached capacity we will be enforcing a one in one out policy. If you cannot get access, we recommend you go and enjoy an artist at an alternative stage.

Citadel is on a green-field site with some tarmac paths. While there are some sheltered areas (marquees) it is mainly an open-air event. Weather and ground conditions may be variable and in times of extreme weather, mobility on the site may become very difficult. We ask you to consider this before purchasing a ticket.
A site map will be available in June and will be sent out in your information pack; copies of the map will also be available from the Information Tent on the day. More information about site layout can be made available on request from mid June onwards.

We are afraid no pets are allowed at Citadel. Assistance dogs, however, will be permitted. Please visit our Disability Access page for more information.

We provide at least one accessible toilet at each main toilet block in the arena, one at the main stage viewing platform and one at the Welfare tent. These will be ‘festival style’ portable units, and will be signposted and shown on the maps in your info pack.


Please respect the neighbourhood and our neighbours by leaving quickly and quietly, not dropping litter, and using the toilets provided. If you need directing to toilets or transport links, please ask one of the stewards on the routes to and from the park. Thanks for helping us out.
