Accommodation and Site
Solas Festival will take place at a new site Errol Park, just outside the village of Errol.
The Festival site is mostly well kept fields and an old stables building, with lots of tented venues with all sorts of exciting things happening in them - we aim to make the site as accessible as possible - if you have a specific access enquiry, contact Debs Hahn: firstname.lastname@example.org
Camping is available to all weekend ticket-holders at no extra cost. But if you have bought a day ticket and you decide to stay over at the last minute, camping will cost £5 per night.
There will be a range of caterers at the festival, providing vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and halal options. There is also space for you to bring your own food and picnic on the festival field. Our confirmed caterers for this year’s festival are as follows:
GastroGrilla (serving gourmet flatbreads, loaded fries, nachos and more)
The Rolling Stove (serving speciality breakfast rolls, and a range of lunch options heavily influenced by iconic Scottish ingredients)
Hiring a yurt
Not into slumming it? Why not hire a luxury Krgyz style yurt for a little warm dry haven on site? Yurt hire is available with basic or luxury options – go to our yurt hire page for more details or contact email@example.com to make a booking.
This is proper old-fashioned camping – no electric hook-ups, and no use of generators for those who like to cheat. Toilets and water taps are provided in the campsite, but there are no showers available (sorry folks). Small barbecues are allowed in the designated area, but please do not light any open fires - there is a fire pit on the festival field.
Please don’t bring glass packaging onto the campsite or the main festival area. Both areas of the site are used for livestock grazing throughout the year, and broken glass is dangerous for the animals’ feet and for vehicle tyres.
Tap water in Scotland is both delicious and clean. Free tap water is available to all festivalgoers from all the bars and food outlets on site as well as from the cold water taps on the campsite.
On site we have both general and recycling bins. Please divide your rubbish appropriately, being aware that putting non-recyclable matter into recycling bins does have a direct financial cost to the festival.
Bringing your caravan or campervan
We have limited space for small caravans and campervans – please contact the office to book a pitch (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org). Due to the limited number of spaces booking a space will have a small additional cost; if the limited number of spaces have been filled we will be unable to provide space for caravans or camper vans without a confirmed space booking.
Disabled camping vehicle access
We have a dedicated section of the larger onsite campsite for disabled camping. Spaces are available in the disabled campsite for those with mobility and access difficulties, where cars may be parked adjacent to tents – please reserve a space by emailing email@example.com. Unfortunately, we cannot currently provide electric charging facilities for mobility scooters or refrigeration facilities at the campsite, but we may be able to offer these by the main festival field. There are adapted toilets in four locations on site.
Weather-permitting, you will be able to drive into the camping field to unload your car this year, but you cannot park beside your tent.
The car park is situated across the road from the main festival site, adjacent to the campsite. No vehicles are permitted anywhere else on the main festival site unless they have been issued with a pass by the festival office.
Solas Festival site is spread over 30 acres of mostly green field site and farmland. There are roadways that are hard compacted dirt and some cleared pathways but the site can be difficult to traverse, particularly in bad weather. Solas Festival does put tracking down over sections of the festival field to aid mobility, and previous years have seen wheelchair users moving around site including the festival field area. If you have any questions about access - contact Debs Hahn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We offer free tickets to personal assistants to enable people to attend the festival more easily.
Local B&B accommodation and hotels can be found via the Perthsite Tourist Board website, or contact their Perth office on 01738 450621 for more information.
