All You Need to Know


Where's SVF MIDLANDS located?

SVF Midland's picturesque, and easy to find home, is at:





NG22 9EP


SVF Midland's music is set in a large open grassed arena area, with great views of the stage from all over the site. Folding chairs, picnic blankets, etc, are fine to bring, but we would politely ask that they're located further back, for safety reasons, as nearer to the front of the stage is where people stand closer together. 

Food & Drink

There'll be a varied range of food traders with all kinds of food available, including vegetarian and vegan options, and all at competitive prices. With a range of bars at the site, with competitive drink prices and lots of bar staff to make sure you're not queuing, we want you to have a great time without making a hole in your wallet!

Campers can bring personal food and drink onto the site for consumption by campers, in the camp site only.

You may bring limited food and soft drink into the music entertainment area, when you arrive, for personal consumption only. A small food picnic in a small bag or rucksack is allowed, (no large bags, holdalls or cool boxes), plus one 500ml plastic, sealed and previously unopened bottle of soft drink or water per person, is permitted. However, your own alcohol may not be consumed in the designated entertainment area due to licensing restrictions.

Free drinking water will be provided so you can bring in an empty reusable plastic or aluminium bottle for refills.

NO GLASS or metal utensils are allowed anywhere on site due to Health & Safety restrictions.

Are dogs allowed?

Dogs are welcome in the music arena and, if you are camping, in the camp sites, but must be kept on a lead at all times, with any fouling picked up and disposed of in the appropriate disposal points provided. If your dog shows any signs of distress when near the music area, please remove them for their welfare.

The free car parking area is also the closest parking available for our disabled guests but is a short walk on a level pathway to the music area.
