Onefest 2012 Overview
Honeyfest, held in spring, is the first out-door music festival of the year. It taps into the spirit and nature of this magical season and takes place in the heart of the ancient and famous Wiltshire countryside.
Honeyfest was born out of the Barge Inn which was located in the village of Honeystreet (hence the name!) This year it is moving to a secret idillic rural venue located north of Marlborough. In the heart of the countryside you can enjoy fantiastic music, real ale and a perfect day out to celebrate the start of the festival season. The exact Wiltshire location of the festival will remain a mystery until you buy your ticket!

Unfortunately this year there is no camping on the festival site, however, the Barge Inn has a fantastic campsite and they are also running a shuttle bus to and from the festival. This alongside what will probably be the best afterparty in Wiltshire must be a definite choice for all campers but I would book early to avoid dissapointment (there are also a lot of other great campsite in the vicinity).
Honeyfest will endeavour to make the event as accessible as we can for disabled ticket holders and their carers.
Blue badge holders parking can be found at the end of the car park closest to the festival entrance.
It must be noted, that Honeyfest is an outdoor event on uneven, green field farm and as such it will present challenges for those with serious mobility issues and wheelchair users.
Wheelchairs will be able to access most areas without too much trouble but the ground can be very uneven and hilly in places and is predominantly on grass. If it rains it may get muddy and access around the site will be very difficult.
Disabled toilets are located at the first aid point.
Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your individual requirements before purchasing a ticket. You will then be emailed the disabled guest registration form on which you can apply for a carer ticket.
You will need to provide:
A description of your disability
A photocopy of the most recent letter of entitlement to Disability Living Allowance from the DWP
The name of your carer/helper that will be with you
Vehicle registration and make
Disabled tickets are full price. Carer tickets are £20 and are paid for on the door.

Onefest 2012 Food and Drink
As an independent festival focused on putting on the best possible line-up we rely on the bars and food stalls to help us fund the bands we book. That’s why we ask people not to bring any alcohol onsite. The bars are well-stocked, fairly priced and open all-night long and we have a delicious array of decent, wholesome food. We appreciate your help.
