Cornbury Music Festival 2011 Overview
The Cornbury Festival is one-of-a-kind: an eclectic and eccentric musical carnival - a dynamic summer festival disguised as a country fayre - a lovingly crafted, top notch, very English open air party, tailor-made for the whole family.
Like the best of England, Cornbury is eccentric, charming and irresistible - a homespun melting pot where music-lovers share pies and a glass of champagne with superstars, toffs, rockers, crooners, Morris dancers, farmers, urbanites, fashionistas, gourmet chefs and the little old ladies who make exceptional cakes.

Cornbury Music Festival 2011 Event Info
At Cornbury there is something for everyone – an eclectic mix of music across 4 stages, a fantastic children’s area with a complete programme of workshops daily, the best of the festival caterers with a huge choice of culinary delights, an extensive range of arts and crafts stalls, roaming entertainers who never fail to stop you in your tracks, a fun filled fairground, relaxing therapy and massage zone, a farmer’s market selling local produce, the fabulous Disco Shed for those who want to dance their socks off, an exclusive VIP area, beautiful campsites, and above all a magical atmosphere that you would find difficult to describe to anyone who hasn’t experienced Cornbury for themselves.
In short, The Cornbury Festival represents classic summer entertainment for a friendly crowd from all walks of life. A country fair with a rock 'n' roll twist; a farmers' market with a dancefloor; a magical local carnival with a classic contemporary soundtrack.
The new site at Great Tew lends itself perfectly to beautiful new campsites.
This is the main campsite that the majority of Cornbury Festival goers choose to camp in – a tented campsite set in stunning surroundings, with showers, toilets, catering and nightly entertainment.
As with previous years, they will have a ‘Quieter Camping’ field for those of you who would prefer not to be disturbed by the campsite entertainment, or who have young children. The ‘Quieter Camping’ field is a tented campsite only, and live-in vehicles cannot be parked here. Please do not purchase a ‘Quieter Camping’ ticket and hope to bring your live-in vehicle too – they are 2 separate camping fields!
If you would like to bring your live-in vehicle (campervan, caravans and trailer tents permitted), you will need to purchase a ‘Campervan Permit’ – please note that awnings will be allowed (within reason) but you will not be allowed to pitch a tent next to your campervan. If you have friends who will be camping in tents, they will be on a separate campsite to you.
The Festival will also have a magical new ‘Glamping’ area.
This year the accommodation in the Glamping area will be in the form of Tangerine Fields’ ready erected tents, Yurts and Squrts, Hearthworks Tipis, Podpads, Bellepads, and new for 2011: Beaupads.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR VIP TICKET HOLDERS:
Please note there is NO VIP campsite - the VIP experience applies to the arena only. If you are a VIP ticket holder, you will be camping on one of the regular campsites unless you have chosen the ‘Glamping’ option.
VIP ticket holders will have access to the exclusive VIP tent – a welcome haven when the sun or rain gets too much, a great view of the stage without getting into the middle of the crowds, and a comfy sofa to rest your weary-from-dancing legs.
In the Cornbury VIP area you can be sure to find the following:
An exclusive VIP bar
Private VIP garden
And many more benefits to be announced

The disabled car park will be positioned as close to the festival arena as possible – however, please be aware that the route to the arena from the car park will be across grass. If you genuinely require assistance getting from the car park to the arena, please ask one of the stewards and they will be happy to help you.
There will be a raised platform in the arena which will provide good viewing for wheelchair users.
