When coming to the Festival we do have a few rules about what you can bring in. The things you can't bring are listed here and in our T&C'S. Beyond that, bring what you need to have an enjoyable weekend...and remember, you have to carry it from your car or bus station to the campsite.

As part of our commitment to reducing plastic waste we have plenty water points around the site so we actively encourage you to bring in empty refillable drinks bottles that you can fill up & keep hydrated at all times. Please dispose of your litter responsibly. There are recycling bins and general waste bins throughout the Festival Site.

Please recycle your cups by returning them to the designated cup return points located by the main bars around the site.

Camping style chairs & inflatable seating are allowed on-site, but please be aware there will be a designated point in the Main Arena beyond which you will not be able to take such items. Look out for signage on site.

If you're bringing a baby you can bring in formula milk powder to mix up or food in pouches for them, but please no glass. For anyone else, food is only allowed in the Campsite.

If you would like to buy any Barclaycard presents the Isle of Wight Festival merchandise, please visit our online shop.

We want everyone to feel welcome and accepted at Barclaycard presents the Isle of Wight Festival. We love seeing people dress up at the show, particularly on our fancy dress Saturday, and can’t wait to see what fabulous outfits have been lined up for this year.

As you plan, please be mindful of others and how they may feel about your choice of outfit. If we think any clothing is inappropriate or offensive then we will ask for it to be removed or changed and, if that is not possible or someone refuses, then we will ask that person to leave the festival.

While we want people to let their imaginations run wild, we will not allow:

  • Anything racially or sexually inappropriate or offensive
  • Anything that belittles or demeans others
  • Costumes that mimic or celebrate people who have committed criminal acts

This list isn’t exhaustive and our decisions will be final at the festival. If in doubt, remember that getting dressed up is about enhancing the experience for everyone at the festival and anything that doesn’t do that won’t be allowed.
