Please note, we do not provide an electricity hook up for live in vehicles. There will be water refill points nearby and an IBC waste removal for live in vehicles in the field.
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.
Our suppliers for 2024 will be available soon. Please note you should buy a boutique parking pass if you are staying in boutique.
Current government guidance around the Covid 19 pandemic permits Houghton 2023 to go ahead. As we are all aware governmental Covid-19 measures are continually changing and should Houghton not be able to take place under any changes to government guidance, full refunds, excluding booking fees, for tickets purchased for the festival from Resident Advisor will be issued to all guests.
