Festival Information

Brownstock Festival 2012 Overview

Brownstock Music Festival is one seriously overgrown house party. Started by the Brown family running through 3 days every September. It has come a long way since originally only being open for 100 friends!

Today they are bigger, and although are still a completely family run festival, they have a line up that would make comparative festival giants peep over the hedge.

Tickets £74, group buying discounts available

Camping
Camping facilities are included in the weekend camping ticket price

The campsite will offer a reasonably priced off licence with a selection of alcoholic drinks as well as other amenities. On Friday 2nd only you can bring alcohol into the campsite, as long as it is within the limit of 12 cans or 1 box of wine. NO alcohol will be allowed into the festival after Friday. There is a strictly no glass policy on the entire festival site (the cows don’t like it!), any glass will be confiscated on entry.

Opening Hours
Weekend Camping ticket- gates open at 4pm on Friday 2nd so you can get in and set up camp before the arenas open on Friday evening. Holders of Winter Special Offer tickets will be allowed into the campsite at 2pm on Friday 31st Aug to get set up ahead of the crowds.

Children

Any youth or child under the age of 16 MUST be accompanied by an adult of a responsible nature i.e. parent or legal guardian. Older siblings, cousins, friends and boy/girlfriends are not considered a responsible adult. It is at the discretion of the festival organisers and appointed staff to deem whether the adult accompanying youth / child ticket holders is responsible or not. Unaccompanied children/youths or those without a legal guardian will not be admitted, tickets will be confiscated and will not be refunded. Adults are able to accompany more than one child, ie. a parent bringing a child and his / her friends, but ALL children are his / her responsibility on-site.

Brownstock Festival 2012 Travel Info

By Train
A 2 min taxi ride or 20 min walk from the local train station. A national rail service runs regularly out of London Liverpool Street to South Woodham Ferrers and only takes 45-50 mins. So it's easy not to bring the car if you dont have to. If travelling from other directions South Woodham Ferrers train station is the place you need to get to

By Car
The M25, the A12/A130 and A13/A130 all offer good access and Brownstock Festival will be clearly signposted. Car Parks are available onsite, no pre-booking is required but there will be a £5 per car parking fee, payable on arrival. There will also be a carbon-friendly green tax charge of £3 for any car wishing to leave site and return during the course of the weekend - so do your bit and come prepared (this money goes to our local village to say sorry for the disruption.) Drop-off points are available and clearly signposted.

Brownstock Festival 2012 Food and Drink

Home-raised Aberdeen Angus beef burgers, gourmet fried breakfasts and milkshakes.

“The way to a man's heart is through his stomach”, says mummy Brown. Really it should have been a farmer's heart. To Daddy Brown a beefburger means a home grown, 80% Aberdeen Angus Brown beefburger.

This sets the precedent for what he expects to see in the Food village. Plenty for veggies too.
