There is a reason thousands of people return to the site year after year, and it only takes one visit for you to understand what that reason is.

Woodford is ready for you. The organisers know what they’re doing. The General Store onsite has everything from food basics to wet weather gear to ice for the esky. BUT, listed below are some nuggets of advice from experienced festival attendees wishing to share their wisdom.

After a long day or night visiting numerous stages, wandering through markets, and dancing with street performers it’s nice to return to a comfortable camp site that you’re proud to call home. Take the time to set up a camp site that will last the distance. Plan how you’re going to utilise the space before you leave home. If you wing it on the day you will most likely be missing some key elements. You may want to relax for a couple of hours during the day and it helps if you camp site is a welcoming one.
There is a phone charging stand that you can leave to charge your gadgets while you wander the Woodfordian Streets.
