Where is Horseheath Racecourse?
Horseheath Racecourse, Linton, Cambs, CB21 4QP
The racecourse entrance is on the south side of the A1307 between Linton and Horseheath.
Your SATNAV will lead you on the wrong side of the dual carriageway, but there is a crossing point to the entrance opposite. You should spot the road signs. The Wild Wood Disco is occupying a small woodland in the middle of the site. Please follow the signs from the entrance.
Do I need to print out my ticket?
To gain access to the site you will need to show your ticket barcode. This can be on your phone or on a print out. We have security at the gate on the access road so please be ready to show them your ticket here, and you will need it again at the box office to get your wristband. You will not gain access to the site without your ticket. Anyone found inside the event without a wristband will be removed.
What time do the gates open?
The box office opens at 1pm so there will be no access into the woodland until then. However you can arrive onsite earlier, the main gates will be open at 11am which will give campers plenty of time to pitch their tent. Last entry is at 8pm.
Can I bring alcohol?
No alcohol is permitted into the Wild Wood that has not been purchased from one of our bars. We will have security on the box office who will confiscate alcohol if you attempt to bring it in to the woods. There must be absolutely no glass brought onsite at all, even in the car park or campsite. Horses and other animals will be on the grass soon after our event. A small amount of alcohol in cans can be brought into the campsite area, no more than 4 cans per person.
Is there an age restriction?
The Wild Wood Disco is an 18 and over only event. ID might be asked for at the box office and our bars. Challenge 25 is in place in our bars.
Cars can be left overnight at no extra charge, there is a parking fee of £5 per vehicle. The closest train station is Cambridge and takes about half an hour in a car/taxi.
Shuttle bus tickets from Cambridge will be available soon through our ticketing page. We do recommend using our Facebook event group to try and find taxi shares, an 8 seater taxi will cost £49 from central Cambridge and a 4 seater taxi will cost £39. This is using A1 Cabco who are offering a 10% discount on taxis booked in advance, call 01223 313131. It is not safe to walk to the site from any direction as the A1307 is a very busy road.
Is there a cash point onsite?
There is no cash point onsite. Our main bars all have card machines and will do cash back for you. Some of the street food traders and some of the bars will only take cash.
Are there tickets on the door?
We expect to be sold out by then as we were last year, so at the moment we are not planning to have any tickets on the door.
I'm camping, what is there in the camping field?
We´ll have nice toilets and a drinking water unit. We will have the Rural Coffee Project serving hot drinks and Food trucks serving food from 8.30am. The woods are open again from 9am with a bar and chilled tunes from the main stage so you can relax and enjoye your breakfast. We´re afraid no boom box or large sound systems on the campsite. It is a very short walk into The Wild Wood from there. Strictly no cars in the camping field, they must be left in the car park. We ask that campers leave by midday the next day and take all their rubbish with them, we will provide rubbish bags at the campsite hub.
What food traders can I expect?
See Forest Feast under line up page
What time are acts on?
What shall I bring to The Wild Wood?
Bring happy, smiley festival vibes. Apart from that plenty of cash, dancing shoes (the ground can be uneven in places, trainers or boots are best).
My new favourite festival and my favourite gig of the year so far :-)”
