Frequently Asked Questions

Alcohol

Full details can be found within our Entry Policy

At AmpRocks we are happy for adults (18 and over) to bring in four cans of beer/cider/spirits with mixers or up to 75cl of wine (either in plastic bottles or cans). We have slightly reduced the allowance this year to minimise littering, so please use the bins provided. Next year, to be more ecologically friendly we will not allow alcohol to be brought in.

Food & drink for personal consumption are allowed into the arena for AmpProms and AmpGala.

There will be a pay bar with close to high street prices. The bar will be running a challenge 25 policy, so if you are fortunate enough to look under 25 please ensure you bring photo ID with you.

Weather

Forecasts are looking warm for festival weekend so make sure you apply plenty of sun cream and stay hydrated. Of course they might be wrong and it might be cold or even rain – Remember it is an outdoor event so please dress and prepare accordingly. We will have on site drinking water points for your use.


Cash

While we would love to go cashless, weren’t not quite there yet. Being in the middle of a park has its challenges! 

Many of our vendors will try their best to facilitate card payments, but it’s best to have cash readily available. We also do not offer an on site cash machine, so please do come well prepared as we can’t allow pass-out/re-entries.


Parking

Dedicated car parks are available accessed from Woburn Street next to the Great Park at a price of £5 per car. We encourage you to pre-book a parking space in advance via Eventbrite on our ticket page.


Special Assistance

Toilets
