Toilets & Showers

Providing the best possible sanitation at Houghton is at the forefront of our mind. We have contracted to work with industry leading sanitation providers to provide a wide, and well serviced, selection of plastic toilets, composting toilets, accessible toilets and showers across the main site and all campsites. All sanitation facilities are included in the ticket price and will not be chargeable at the festival. Showers are open 24/7.
