The Tropical Pressure Festival site is on a green, spacious and contained farmland overlooking the sea at Porthtowan,and all festival activities take place in the same area. Camping is on a grassy, level site just a few minutes’ walk from the main arena, and has hot showers (just £2 per person), plenty of toilets and lots of room to stretch out.

All WEEKEND tickets to Tropical Pressure include camping for tents. Sorry, but day tickets do not include camping of any kind. If you want to stay over, you need a weekend ticket.


Vans and other live-in vehicles are admitted to the site but can only be parked in the designated area and with a valid live-in vehicle pass. These passes sell out quickly so make sure you get yours as soon as you know you want to come!


After its success in 2016 we’re recreating a dedicated family camping area, separate from the main campsite, which is monitored for noise from 10pm. This area allows parking for ONE car OR ONE van and space for ONE tent, and is specifically designed for families. Please bear this in mind when booking, and see our Terms & Conditions for more info.


We have a limited number of beautiful, furnished Bell Tents available to hire for the weekend, so you can just turn up and get stuck in without even having to lift a tent peg!

These beautiful and sturdy canvas tents come with 1 x Double air bed with fitted sheet, a bedding pack (Double 13.5 tog duvet, 2 pillows and bed linen), Coir matting, Door mat, Bunting, Internal fairy lights, 1 x table, 1 x blanket and a Floor rug.

WEEKEND FURNISHED (Fri 10am to Mon 2pm) £175

TP CASTAWAY FURNISHED (Thurs 2pm to Mon 2pm) £200

Extra beds (single and double) are from £20 per night. Max 4 people per tent.

Every year these tents sell out almost instantly so if you want one, here’s what to do:

Email a copy of your e-ticket receipt for the festival to – stating clearly which day you plan to arrive, and how many people you want to accommodate in your tent. We will send back confirmation if we have space, plus an invoice to make your payment online.

IMPORTANT: We do NOT allow external Bell Tent or other tent hire companies to access Tropical Pressure Festival, under any circumstances. Access to the campsite is for ticket holders only.
