Organisers need to plan more if things stop working, it rains a lot or other issues. On the Friday, the system letting people enter broke for half an hour. Seems that they hadn’t tested for this.
When it rained heavily, there seemed to be no idea of how to deal with the muddy paths and when leaving the site on Monday many people struggled to get their vehicles out and there was no communication as to how you could get help. When you did get help, the security people were rude and unhelpful.
Because of these issues I don’t think I’d go back. Shame really because it is a great place and great line up. The organisers need to grow up in thinking of how things could go wrong and how they will deal with it because it was apparent at the weekend they simply hadn’t done the planning and lots of staff had to say sorry because things weren’t working. Please get your act together as you’ve a venue way better than Glastonbury and other venues.

Waited 4 decades to see Kraftwerk.... they were mind blowing and the sound quality across the festival was faultless

fantastic event as always. great music. learned loads. great range of food. app works really well. loved the pre pay wristbands too. so much easier!

only improvement suggestion: organise camping space better and have an opt-in quiet zone .... or an opt in party zone ... so that entire site is not at the mercy of karioke and drnken revelry all night.

Poor organisation of the parking facilities & over expensive parking but other than that quite good value.

Excellent festival. Great vibe. Small enough to feel intimate. But big enough to have lots going on.
And can't p beat the location, underneath routes the Lovell telescope

Loved the Bluedot Festival and would definitely go next year for the 50th Anniversary special of the Moon Landings. Great atmosphere and just the right size for a festival. Not too big and not too small. Felt very safe with the stewards around and a great festival for all the family and all ages with a mixture of everything. Loved the science lectures on SETI and Aliens, the films of Moon and Metropolis and the music, wellbeing area and fire garden. THANK YOU Bluedot! Until next year!
