Location:

  • Where is the festival?

-The vital question “where is it?!” Well due to the festival’s exclusive nature the location is TOP SECRET until tickets have been purchased. We can tell you it is about half an hour from Manchester towards the peaks by train and then less than 1 mile from said train station. Directions will be sent out to ticket holders closer to the date.
