No reduction in prices will be given for staying less than 5 nights on the premises. 

 

If you have booked to stay in the Wild Spirit Lodge, your 5-day Festival Pass should be purchased separately to your accommodation expenses.

Once we have confirmed your accommodation type, you can select the ticket option applicable to you on the application form.

Disclaimer: The Wild Spirit lodge is run as a separate entity over New Years Eve. It will be totally full and at capacity.

As such, all Lodge facilities and amenities (such as catering, kitchens, dining area and communal ablutions) will be reserved for in-house lodge guests only. Overuse of the above amenities creates chaos and stress for all festival guests & staff.

We value your co-operation and understanding.
