WHAT TICKET TYPE DO I NEED?

Entry to the festival is by advance ticket purchase only. No tickets will be available on the gates. Please see the ticket section on this website for full details of ticket types and where you can purchase them.

Age 11 to 15 Weekend Tickets must be accompanied by a ticket holding parent or guardian over the age of 30.

Also, all teens (aged 11 to 15) MUST camp in the same area as their families.

Teen Ticket holders (Age 11-15) are not allowed in the arena unaccompanied after 10pm.

ID will be checked at the gate and entry will be refused to those not accompanied by an adult aged 30 or older.

16 and 17 year olds with an adult ticket require ID to allow them to enter without an adult.

There are a limited amount of tickets for children up to and including the age of 5 to attend free of charge but their parent or guardian must obtain a ticket for them and accompany them at ALL times.

By purchasing a Child (age 6-10) Ticket, Infant (5 & under) Ticket or a Teen (age 11-15) Ticket you are confirming that you are either the parent or legal guardian of the teen or child for whom you are purchasing.

Please note – all age-specific (e.g. child) tickets bought rolled over from Kendal Calling 2020 will be honoured even if the ticketholder is now outside of that age-bracket.

Alcohol is not allowed to be taken into the arena. We apologise to those who think this is unfair, however the festival is subsidised by the profits made from the bar and without it we simply would not be able to bring you all the great acts and entertainment on offer without drastically increasing the ticket price (which we don’t want to do!).

Security and stewards are on site to assure you have a safe weekend of fun and frolics.

DSLR cameras are permitted on site for personal use. Any press related photographers should contact our press team in advance of the event.

WILL THERE BY ENTRY SEARCHES?

As part of our license agreement our security team undertake general searches.

This is done for the safety and protection of all. Searches are done as in-obtrusively as possible and only with due cause.

WHAT ID DO YOU ACCEPT?

We accept Driving licenses, provisional or full, Passports and Citizenship cards as forms of ID.

CAN I LEAVE THE FESTIVAL AND COME BACK?

We have a General Store selling essentials, a cash machine onsite, and plenty of food traders and bars so you will never go hungry or thirsty! If you do need to leave the festival over the weekend please email us on hello@kendalcalling.com and let us know and we can issue you a pass out to collect upon your exit from the festival so you will have no problems on re-entry.
