We can’t wait for our next instalment of festival magic and mayhem in the Knockengorroch hills! Just to let you know of a few things in advance of the adventure…
Knockengorroch is a unique site. It is located deep in the Southern Uplands of Scotland. There are no shops, ATMs, petrol stations or urban ‘civilization’ for 10 miles. Please bear this in mind when you pack!
As well as your craziest and most fun festy wear, bring warm and waterproof clothing plus sunscreen! Also any food and provisions you would need for camping for four days in the hills, bearing in mind we have quite a few well priced caterers on site.
Please look after yourself and those around you!
Knockengorroch is a unique site. To get there you must travel 4 miles along private roads. We must keep a very close eye on number and type of vehicles coming in. If you are bringing a vehicle on to the site you must purchase a vehicle pass at the appropriate rate.
Vehicle passes for over 3 tonnes will only be available to purchase in advance. YOU WILL NOT GAIN ENTRY TO THE FESTIVAL SITE IF YOU HAVE NOT NOTIFIED US IN ADVANCE THAT YOUR VEHICLE IS OVER 3 TONNES. If in doubt email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note there is no access for vehicles over 7 ½ tonnes or vehicles or caravans wider than 7 feet.
Gate opening times
Thursday – 10am to midnight
Friday, Saturday, Sunday – 9am to midnight
Hire a Yurt
There is the option of hiring a yurt and staying in that if tents aren’t your thing! The yurts are handcrafted by Red Kite Yurts. There are a range of sizes available and prices start at around £200. Contact Paul Millard. Tel 01877 330943, email
Mobile phone signals are patchy around the site but generally O2, Virgin, T-mobile and Orange get reception. The office landline can be used in an emergency.
The Knock Bus
The Knock Bus travels from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dumfries and Carlisle to the festival site on Thursday and Friday, returning on Monday. Further info here. PLEASE NOTE – Knockbus E-tickets will be emailed to you. Your name will also be on the passenger list with the number of seats you’ve booked when you board.
