Am I allowed to bring food and drink onto the Castlefest terrain?

As every year it is not allowed to bring food and drink to Castlefest. We of course won’t make a fuss about a couple of sandwiches and a bottle of water, but big thermos bags filled with food and drink or crates or trays of beer will not be allowed. Other forms of alcohol will also be confiscated. This has to do with the regulations and our catering permit. We won’t be as strict as most pop festivals like Lowlands, but we will have to enforce these rules. We hope you will be understanding.

Do I have to pay to park my bike at the car park?

No, you do not have to pay to park your bike.

Are dogs allowed to visit Castlefest?

Dogs are allowed on the terrain, but are to be kept on a leash.

Other animals are in the interest of animal welfare not allowed at Castlefest.

Does the event have wheel chair access?

The paths in the estate grounds are often very accessible for wheel chairs. The stalls are provided with steel planking and there is a disabled toilet. A part of our parking is reserved for disabled people.
