All leisure activities at Trabolgan like go-karting, archery, 5-a-side soccer, zip line, climbing walls, crazy golf, and par 3 golf, will operate during the daytime over the weekend. If that isn’t enough, the festival will also host some talks and walks around the Roches Point and Trabolgan area for those interested in a bit of history and a stroll.

How does it work?

We have booking options for 2 people to 9 people. Your house or camper van site includes your weekend festival ticket. You must book one of the 3 – 9 sleeper houses or one of the camper van pitches (Van not included / BYOV) There is no camping, there are no weekend tickets without accommodation. It is a residents only affair which allows us to avail of residents perks such as much later opening hours..

Much the same as booking a holiday home or an AirBnb for a weekend away, one person books the accommodation and they are the lead contact for your booking.

Your booking includes 3 nights accommodation and weekend festival tickets.

So get your crew together, pick your accommodation type and book!

Once you have booked we will be in touch closer to the date to get your party details..

Big sound, killer lighting and top live performances. Wordsmiths, MC’s, raconteurs and poets will be dropping rhymes and reason; art installations will be popping up, down, and around, the wooded valley on site; great food will be brought to you by some savage stalls and food trucks from only the finest local producers in the rebel county. It Takes A Village will be a home away from home with a musical soundtrack covering a broad palette of tastes, styles and rhythms. It’s a place to meet and make new friends whilst having modern conveniences, comfort and never being more than two minutes walk from your new home! ????
