Sonisphere 2014 Travel Info
The nearest useable rail station is Stevenage, two miles away. There is a free shuttle service from the station (see above) plus is a taxi rank. Taxis should cost around £5 to the festival site (depending on traffic). Non-stop Inter-City and local services run to Stevenage from London Kings Cross Station around every 30 minutes. Plus, there are frequent Inter-City connections on the East Coast main line to Cambridge, York, Newcastle, Glasgow, Edinburgh and many other destinations.
Please note that there will be NO festival access from Knebworth Train Station. You must use Stevenage station.
It is STRONGLY recommended that return train tickets are bought in advance. Stevenage is on a very busy commuter line and has narrow platforms so it will not be possible for festival goers to gain access to the station till after 9.30am once the commuter traffic has died down. The free shuttle service will start at 9.15am from the site but you may need to wait for a short while at the station before accessing the platforms. It is therefore recommended that trains are booked for after 10am to ensure you can meet your travel plans.
A FREE shuttle bus service will run from Stevenage Train Station to the Sonisphere site from Thursday to Monday. It will be a continuous service rather than at set times. More buses will be available during busy periods but you may need to wait for a short while to get the next available bus. Check back here for updates on the running times.
The shuttle bus is not reserved for just rail users. It can be used by local festival goers and people staying or parking in Stevenage. The shuttle bus will leave from the Leisure Park at the foot of the railway station bridge and takes you close to the entrance to the festival.
Rock Royalty camping customers have an additional shuttle which picks them from the station or the main shuttle drop off point in the festival site and takes them to the Rock Royalty reception. This will be signposted but please ask a steward if you are unsure of its location. More details will be sent to Rock Royalty customers in advance of the festival
