General tickets include a camping space for a tent (you need to bring your own tent that is no bigger than the average six-person tent 120”x120”). There will be shared showers and toilets on the camping site.

Out & Wild has been designed for LGBTQIA women and those who are non-binary, but it is open to all. It is an inclusive space and we will be asking all attendees (including vendors, acts, volunteers and others to agree to our code of conduct).

Our research (which included canvassing those who attended the first Out & Wild Festival) found that attendees were looking for an adult space. However, we are pleased to say that our parent company Out and About LGBTQ is looking to hold family focused events in the future for those who identify as LGBTQIA and non-binary.

As much as we love dogs, things would get a little chaotic if we allowed dogs at the festival. So we are sorry say that you’ll need to leave your four legged friends at home.

Guide and assistance dogs are, of course, welcome.

We will of course adhere to the Welsh Government’s guidance and prospective directives that may be in place for the duration of the festival. We will make sure all attendees are aware of any procedures  in place well in advance of the festival.

You can arrive on any day during the festival to collect your wristband, as long as it is within the festival gate opening times.

To that end we ask that no tent is bigger than the average 6 person tent (120”x120”). In addition to this we request that no additional awning is placed to extend the size of your tent so as not to intrude on other festival goers space.

Campervans- Due to limitations on space available, can we please ask that your campervan does not exceed 6.8 metres in length.

Separate or attached awnings are permitted for campervans but not separate tents.

Our official ticket vendor is Giganatic. If you have any queries with your ticket please contact Giganatic directly. Please note that only tickets purchased from Gigantic will be valid for the festival.
