We welcome families and kid's with open arms on the farm. Thats why all children under 12 are free all weekend! Its also the reason why we've made our Little Lounge (see the Fun section) bigger, funner, Loungier and more kid friendly than ever before.
We've compiled a quick and handy quide to taking your Family to Lounge on the Farm...
- Children aged 12 and under are admitted FREE as long as they are accompanying a ticket holding Adult!
- Teenagers aged 13-17 are classed as Youths and must hold a valid Youth Ticket, which must be purchases alongside an Adult Ticket. Youths must be accompanied onto site by a Parent or Guardian, but they do not have to stay together once on site.
We will have our Family Camping area on site as usual, which this year has been greatly improved by the extra allocation of space, of Mother and Baby changing facilities and by special Kids Loos that will be exclusively for the use of Parents and Children.
The Family area will also be spaced far away from General Camping, to ensure that you can grab some all important kip at night!
Lounge on the Farm is an exceptionally child friendly environment. As well as providing more kids entertainment and workshops than ever we want to improve child safety at the festival.
Below is information that we hope you find useful to help keep you and your family safe so you can enjoy the festival to the full:
Although we have increased street and venue sizes this year to help with overcrowding, the festival site canstill get crowded at points and this can be dangerous for little people. If you have young children please avoid the squeeze by not bringing your children into the main arena or tents late in the evening. If a tent looks very crowded in the daytime please do not try to squeeze in and be advised that stewards or security may ask you to leave and come back when it is safe. If you come into the main arenain the daytime, please note there will be a pushchair safe area to the left towards the back of the arena (orwherever we decide to put it).
The festival has amplified sound across the site. We ask you to be aware that high noise levels can bedamaging to hearing - especially to tiny ears! We would advise that hearing protection should be worn.We recommend specialist children’s ear protection such as http://www.earplugstore.com/ear-muffs-for-children.html
Dont stand too close to loudspeakers and limit exposure time.
Health and Hygiene
Lots of people equals lots of germs so it is more important than ever at a festival to make sure hands arewashed, especially before and after eating and after using the loo. We recommend packing some handsanitizer gel and anti-bacterial wipes as well as plenty of high factor suncream and a good first aid kit.Health advice and first aid treatment is available at the welfare tent. We will also have excellent Mother and Baby Facilities on site and special kid's loos that will only be able to be used by Parents and Children.
In the excitement of a festival it is common for children to wander away from their parents. All lost children will be taken to the lost children point located in child welfare. If you do lose your child please stay where you are fora few minutes to look around you and then report to a steward immediately so that we can find your child asquickly as possible.You should write your name and phone number on your child’s white wrist band (available from the office in the Little Lounge. It is also a good idea to tell your child not to talk to strangers and to find a steward or member ofsecurity if they get lost.
