Upon purchasing tickets, they are binding upon you and all who attend the Event. These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
We may amend these Terms & Conditions from time to time. You should check the website from time to time to review the current Terms & Conditions.

Upon purchase you will receive a confirmation of your order, but your actual e-tickets will not be sent until the 3rd of July 2024.
The purchase and retainment of tickets beyond the ticket launch date (27th November 2023) and subsequent entry onto the event site constitutes an acceptance by the purchaser and all entrants of these terms and conditions, and an undertaking on the part of ticket holders to observe them.
In the event of any breach of these terms & conditions, Kambe Events Ltd, it’s staff and agents reserve the right to cancel tickets, to refuse admission, to remove the holder, or to confiscate offending articles, as the case may be, and in any case, to retain any monies paid for the relevant ticket(s).

Kambe Events Ltd reserves the right to cancel tickets purchased for any reason.
PERSONAL SAFETY & RESPONSIBILITY
Please note whilst we try to make the event as safe as possible for everyone, it is a combination of natural unspoilt environment and farmland, with the associated dangers that nature can pose. We cannot accept responsibility for the safety or supervision of you or your children and expect you to take reasonable care for your family’s well being.
TICKETS & TYPES
All tickets are sold subject to availability and at the prices listed on the ticket page via our sole agent TTS.
The Ticket Sellers (TTS) are our sole ticket and resale agent. No other body is authorised to sell or resell tickets. Tickets will not be valid unless purchased from TTS.
Contact via: www.theticketsellers.co.uk
Tickets are subject to agent booking fees and transaction charges applied by TTS. All agent booking fees and transaction costs are non-refundable. The quantity of any tickets available and the volume that may be purchased by customers may be restricted wholly at the discretion of Kambe Events Ltd.
If there is a change of email address subsequent to ticket purchase, it is the purchaser’s responsibility to update their account details with the ticket agent, to ensure receipt of e-tickets.
Excepting those ticket types specifically listed as non-refundable (e.g. instalment plan tickets), all Starry Village tickets are refundable up to 6 weeks ahead of the opening of the Event – for the avoidance of doubt, midnight on the 12th June 2024.
All entrants to the Event must be within the correct age bracket of tickets presented on the opening date; 25th July 2024.
Kambe Events is taking active steps to improve inclusivity and diversity – we want everyone to feel welcome and able to enjoy the Event. Data will be gathered at the point of sale (with TTS) that will help us understand our audience breakdown, shape the Event and measure our progress. This data will be treated in accordance with GDPR regulations and our Privacy Statement.
All person tickets for the Event provide full access for the duration of the event, include camping space, entertainment, and services (showers & toilets). Additional fees apply for vehicles and may apply for some activities.
Adult Tickets are sold in four tiers, or price brackets, with instalment options available for all (see below);
- Super Early Bird Adult £175
- Pre-Xmas Bird Adult £195
- Early Bird Adult £210
- Standard Adult £225
To help prevent fraudulent activity, all types of tickets must be named as part of the booking process and contact details must be provided upon request. It is essential attendees supply unique details for each person ticket – A name, email address, mobile phone number and postcode for every adult attending is required.
Once you have entered your “names on tickets” all details are editable by logging into your TTS account up to the point of redemption. It is essential that all details are checked and regularly updated.
Instalment Plan Tickets are available on all types of adult tickets. All instalment plan tickets are non-refundable due to the external third-party financial administration of payment plans and costs involved. Strict terms and conditions must apply, please read carefully before purchasing.
An initial down payment is required that includes all booking fees, followed by further scheduled payments as set out in the ticket descriptions. The instalment amounts range depending on the ticket type selected.
Instalment plans are automated. You buy the initial ticket with future payments deducted from your nominated bank account on the specified dates.
You must keep your card and email details up to date in your TTS account. It is your responsibility to validate the firstname.lastname@example.org send address in your email account so you receive notifications.
If there are insufficient funds in your nominated bank account or a change of your personal details and an instalment is missed, you will have defaulted on the terms, and the banking facility may be automatically and permanently terminated (this is beyond Kambe’s, or TTS’s control).
TTS will send you a reminder email a week before each payment is due. It is your responsibility to keep your email address up to date on the TTS site and check all your inboxes including spam folders.
If a payment cannot be taken for any reason you will be sent an email alerting you. You then have until 48 hours before the next payment is due to make the missed payment manually. Please log in to your ticket account and contact TTS directly.
If you fail to comply for any reason your tickets will unfortunately be voided and all payments up to that point will be non-refundable.
These are sold in 6 age brackets (to help us plan age appropriate activity). Please book the ticket with the correct age the child will be on the opening day of the Event.
0 – 2-year-olds are free of charge but tickets must still be reserved in advance. All other child tickets are priced at £60 per child, across all age brackets.
There are no booking fees on child tickets.
A maximum of 3 under 18s tickets, across all age brackets, may be booked per adult. All under 18s must arrive and enter the site with an accompanying adult guardian. The lead adult purchaser is the assumed guardian and responsible adult for any under 18s they purchase tickets for.
For older children and teens who may be of adult age, proof of identity and age may be required at the point of accreditation.
In case of emergency, we need to ensure that we are able to care for under 18’s in their best interests and that may require us to take action immediately, for example medical treatment for a minor. Treatment may require permission from a legal guardian. It is the lead ticket purchaser’s responsibility for all tickets purchased for those aged under 18, to ensure that a person is identified as the responsible adult via the ticket system.
This is done by associating the responsible adult for each under 18 ticket in the order, during the process of adding names and contact information to tickets, and the responsible guardian must:
- be ‘loco parentis’ for that child whilst at the festival site (this means they are legally entitled to make decisions for that child) in emergencies,
- have been given permission by the legal guardian of the child to act as loco parentis in emergencies,
- be available throughout the festival on the phone number provided on the ticket system.
You agree to these conditions as part of the ticket buying process.
All vehicles attending the Event require the purchase of an additional vehicle ticket to gain entry to site.
There are no booking fees on vehicle tickets.
Car Park Pass (£25) – Parking for any car (or non-camper van vehicle) for the full Eevent. It is not permitted that cars are slept in during the Eevent.
Standard Camper Van (£75) – Access to the Eevent and parking in a designated camper van area on a 6m x 7m pitch. Valid for one standard camper van (or caravan and towing vehicle) up to 6m in length. Plus, one small additional tent permitted per pitch – tent must fit within the stated pitch area, including guy ropes.
Large Camper Van (£100) – Access to the Eevent and parking in a designated camper van area on a 6m x 10m pitch. Valid for one large camper van (or caravan and towing vehicle) up to 9m in length. Plus, one small additional tent permitted per pitch – tent must fit within the stated pitch area, including guy ropes.
If your vehicle is longer than 9m you must get in touch before booking – please email email@example.com
All towing vehicles will be required to unhitch and park in a separate designated area. No electricity hook ups are available. Campervans are loaded sequentially on entry, and we cannot guarantee that you can be placed near to friends who have arrived at a different time. Exit and re-entry is not permitted for camper vans.
Exit and re-entry for cars may be restricted at any time at the discretion of event staff, but gates will be closed overnight between 8pm and 8am and as such cars will not be allowed to re-enter during these hours.
Additional compulsory carbon balancing charges are applied to all car and camper van passes. These fees are passed directly to registered charity, Ecolibrium, to invest in forest protection, ecosystem regeneration and support for communities at the brunt of climate change. A levy of £1.50 is applied for every car pass and £2.50 per camper van pass. Whilst working tirelessly to reduce all impacts, Kambe Events balances all crew and performer travel, as well as the Events core emissions.
Free carer Personal Assistant (PA) Adult tickets are available to support attendees on PIP, DLA middle or higher rate allowances, CredAbility Access Card, evidence of being registered severely sight impaired and a recognised Assistance Dog ID Card.
If the person in your party who requires a PA/Carer is a child, you do need to pay for the child ticket and one adult ticket, but can then claim a free PA/Carer ticket as a second adult ticket, to give you some extra help on site. The free PA/Carer ticket cannot be the only adult ticket in your party.
Any person qualifying for a free PA ticket is also entitled to a free vehicle pass.
Free PA and vehicle tickets should be requested with a booking reference confirmation number, once a group’s general attendance tickets have been purchased. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to request your PA ticket. Proof of DLA, PIP, Credibility Access Card or Assistance Dog ID card must be provided.
Eligibility for a PA Ticket does not necessarily entitle purchasers to a space in the Accessible Camping Area (ACA) and associated vehicle park. The ACA is provided for those with mobility and/or other specific needs.
To request your free PA ticket, vehicle ticket, or arrange a space in the Accessible Camping Area (ACA), please email the Accessibility team on email@example.com
Camping in Larger Groups
If you are planning to come with other families and camp together this is fine, but space cannot be reserved in advance. Please try to arrive together and use space well.
The size of family tents and the space required per person has gone up exponentially over the years at Starry Skies. Please try to be considerate to others and the event and only use what space you need. Gazebos are permitted but only one per group.
If you’re coming in a camper van and plan to camp as part of a wider group, please be aware that due to safety reasons we are not able to allow camper vans in the general tent camping area.
Camper vans are in marked out dedicated van areas. Each camper van pass is permitted to have one tent alongside, providing it remains within the stated dimensions of the camper van pitch (6m x 7m for a regular camper van pass, and 6m x 10m for a large camper van pass).
If you’re joining us as part of a larger group with several camper vans or caravans, we suggest arriving together (or as close together as you can) to be certain you are pitched together as our trusty traffic team need to place vans in sequential order as they arrive. NB this may only be possible for same sized pitches, standard or large.
