Suffolk Academy is set in 8 acres of sports and recreation facilities and has two campsites, the ‘glamping’ site and the camp site.

The campsite is set within the main festival area so you can see all the action and be involved from the comfort of your motorhome, campervan or tent (no caravans). These have electric hook up and are 10m x 8m with some slightly smaller. The cost of these pitches for the three nights (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) are £100. Full weekend only. They are limited in number so first come first served.

Also on the Glamping site is family camping no all male/female groups allowed. These are large pitches for families but with no electric and the cost is £70 for the weekend per pitch also limited to first come first served.

The camp site is only 50m from the main site but not visible and form the festival area. A 5m x 5m pitch with no electric is £35 for a single night or £60 for the weekend (3 nights)

Smaller pitches are also available 3m x 3m for smaller tents with no electric at £25 for one night or £50 for the weekend


From 4pm on the Friday if coming for the weekend. If arriving on the Saturday arrivals from 10am and to leave by 10am on the Sunday if only doing one night. If arriving Sunday from 11am (to let the departures get out) and leave by 11am on the Monday.


There are 16 mains flush executive toilets on site for the festival and camping (no portaloos) with outside sinks and hot water for washing. No showers available


Cars can drop off equipment next to the camp site but must then park in the car park. No cars are allowed on the camp site at all.


Due to safety regulations no BBQ’s or Fires are permitted in the camp site however a small BBQ area will be set up to allow cooking there


As we need to gauge the number of tickets sold and car parking we will start with:

Camping with electric x 8

Camping with no electric x 5

Camp site 5m x 5m pitches x 20

Camp site 3m x 3m pitches 20

We can increase these as we see the ticket sales growing.


No alcohol or food at all to be allowed from the camp sites into the festival sites. All persons may be subject to search by Security and may be asked to leave if attempt to break festival rules.

Animal Noise/TheCatch/BlueMeanEyes

06:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Animal Noise/TheCatch/BlueMeanEyes

Washing Machine proudly presents


ANIMAL NOISE are an experimental alt-rock trio from Colchester, who come with their own unique blend of raw and high energy soundscapes, born out of the question: “How big a wall of sound can three people create?” Theirs is a music that aims for the whole body, while equally fascinating the mind.

The band continuously and carefully craft a sound for you to lose yourself in both live and on record, with their releases catching the attention of BBC Introducing early on by Tom Robinson championing their debut single ‘Baddow’, eventually achieving ‘Introducing Song of the Week’ on BBC Radio 1. Follow up releases have had the regular support of BBC Radio 6music, Radio X and BBC Introducing, fondly airing the band’s latest offerings as their sound continues to morph, expand and evolve.

Blistering live performances have gained them a loyal fanbase, with the band playing from start to finish with intense, unapologetically ferocious energy. They’ve graced the stage of major festivals and venues including Green Man, Bestival, T in the Park, BST Hyde Park, Shambala, Boardmasters, Blue Dot and The Hammersmith Apollo.

Support comes from riff-dispensing power-pop heroes THE CATCH, anthemic alt-rock trio BLUE MEAN EYES, rather exciting new hook-heavy supergroup SWIMSUIT COMPETITION and high-octane, full swagger indie combo RED GLASS.
