There are both Camping sites and Rent-A-Tent facilities available to book in Hughenden during the festival:
The festival offers ticketed powered and unpowered sites with hot showers and toilets. There is an allocated area for free camping, however there are no facilities at this site so you must be fully self contained with your own toilet, shower and grey-water collection facilities. Generators may be used at the unpowered sites between the hours of 8am and 6pm. If you are planning to use a generator, the camping area is large so be mindful to distance yourself respectfully from other campers.
