Only a very limited number of dogs are permitted onto the festival site. Your dog will not be allowed onto the site without a dog ticket. Please only buy a dog ticket if you really have no option to have your dog looked after elsewhere.
Dog tickets (£85) include a £40 returnable ‘good behaviour’ bond.
Expected behaviour of dog owners at the festival:
- Keep your dog on a lead and under control, with a responsible adult holding the lead, at all times in both public and crew areas of the festival site. There are wooded areas with public footpaths around the edges of the site, where well-behaved dogs can be let off their leads for a run.
- Pick up your dog’s mess. There will be scoop bags available at the Info Exchange. Dispose of these bags in the designated dog poo bins.
- Pay attention to the needs of your dog and other festival-goers. Some venues may prefer not to admit dogs; some people are afraid of dogs: please respect this. Be aware that not everyone loves your dog as much as you do!
- Liaise with our Dog Wardens or Info Exchange Tent if you witness a stray dog or a dog under insufficient control on the site.
Behaviour which will result in forfeit of deposit:
- Owner allowing a dog to wander loose within the festival site.
- Owner not responsibly disposing of their dog’s mess.
- Owner not looking after their dog, resulting in dog wardens or other festival crew having to manage the dog.
GG will not admit dogs so designated in the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991. In the unlikely event of injury or damage being caused by a dog, this will be the liability of the owner. GG reserves the right to ask for the removal of any ‘Out of Control’ dog from the event site.
Your dog will be deemed ‘Out of Control’ if it: injures someone; injures someone’s animal; makes someone worried that it might injure them; or makes someone worried that your dog might injure them if they try to stop it attacking their animal.
Thanks for reading, we hope you understand the need for these rules to ensure the safety and comfort of all festival-goers and the continuance of good relationships with the site owners. We hope you and your dog have a great festival.
