SeekOut aims to bring high calibre arts & music to the beautiful surroundings of Gisburn Forest. Our weekend festival aims to attract a diverse audience and consist of dance & theatre performance mixed with live music and participatory arts & crafts. In time we hope to grow our audience and provide them with more eclectic live music performances, give them the opportunity to experience a interesting variety of arts & wellbeing activities, and deepen their connection with nature and the forest.



Please note that SeekOut Arts & Music Festival is a family-friendly festival. Colours and festival wear is encouraged.


Q1. I have a live-in vehicle – do I have to buy a parking ticket too?

Every vehicle you bring to SeekOut needs to be covered with a parking ticket. If you bring a live-in vehicle that is self-contained, you just have to buy a live-in vehicle parking pass. NO CARS ARE PERMITTED TO BE PARKED ON THE CAMPING FIELD.

Q2. Can I bring my Caravan?

Unfortunately Caravans will not be accepted at SeekOut Arts & Music Festival. This is due to spacing on the field. If you see any Caravans on site this will be for crew or artists only.

Q3. Can I bring an awning for my live-in vehicle?

Yes – the pitches are approximately 8m wide by 9m deep so ample space between you and the next line-in vehicle. There are limited pitches for live-in vehicles, don’t leave it too late to book.

Q4. Is glamping available?

Yes! There will be some glamping options! Please see further details when booking your tickets.


Q5. Is there electric hook-up for live-in vehicles?

No – sorry we’re not there yet!


Q6. Will there be showers?

Unfortunately there are no showers available on site but you will have access to drinking water. There will also be portaloos available as last year.

Q7. Will there be food & drink, and will card payments be accepted?

Yes. There will be various food vendors available to choose from and a bar available for drinks. They will all accept card payments but please note that signal might drop out now and then at Gisburn Forest.

Q8. Can I bring a gazebo?

This year the camp site will be split up between individual pitches and an open area for more communal camping. We’d ask campers to be considerate, please only bring a gazebo if you are in a fairly large group with other friends or family members, while we are trying to make more space for everyone, we would request people do not bring unnecessary large tents and extra accessories for the sake of it.


Q9. Can we have camp-fires?

Sorry campfires won’t be permitted on the camping field itself – but a BBQ for cooking food (on bricks) is allowable. Please talk to the campsite volunteers who might be able to help you. There will be at least one stewarded, festival fire in the forest late at night.


Q10. Can we bring our dog?

Sorry, SeekOut is no-dog festival, anyone found with one will be asked to take their dog home immediately.

Q11. How do you become a volunteer?

SeekOut Arts & Musical Festival is indebted to the work of its volunteers and stewarding team to keep people safe and ensure a happy flow around the festival. If you would like to join our fantastic team and help deliver the event and look after our festival community, we would love to have you. Please email and let us know what you might like to help with.
