Latitude Festival


Family camping at Latitude has dedicated toilets, showers, washing up facilities and water points as well as the Little Latitude Tuck Shop selling essential items for you as well as a food trader. There will also be a Property Storage facility inside Family camping. These great features mean you can always have a great time with any little ones you want to take with you!

The Original Cornbury Festival


Cornbury festival offers a great solution for those with family needs, the 'Quieter Camping' field for those of you who would prefer not to be disturbed by the campsite entertainment, or who have young children.  Perfect for those wanting to have a more relaxed festival! Plus they have the Children's Zone with kids yoga, storytelling, facepainting, sand art and loads more!


Line up: James Morrison, Elvis Costello, Jools Holland & More




Download Festival


You may think Download is no place for children and families, but you'd be wrong! You get "The full Download experience, but in the more peaceful part of the campsite". In the 'quiet' or 'family' camping fields, you'll also have free reign in The Arena, where you will have access to all the music on offer across all stages.


Line up: The Prodigy, Metallica, Black Sabbath & More




Hop Farm Music Festival 2012


Hop Farm may not have the quiet areas as other festivals, but what it does offer is free entry to children aged 12 and under when accompanied by a paying adults. Now you don't have to worry about leaving your kids behind when you want to go to a festival.


Line up: Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan and Suede & More




Glastonbury Festival


Even though we are missing out on Glastonbury this year :( you can still look forward to its arrival in 2013 and the Green Kids Field it has to offer. The area is made up of a children's performance marquee, a children's art and craft marquee, smaller craft tents, outside activities, and the Ship Climbing Frame. And just in case you misplace your child, they have the 'Lost Kids Tent' so you know where to look!
