General FAQs

HAVE A STRESS-FREE GOATFEST WHEN YOU KNOW THE INS & OUTS... 

Q: WHAT IS THE AGE POLICY AT GOATFEST?

A: Challenge 25 operates on all bars. If you have purchased an adult ticket and are fortunate enough to look under the age of 25, you will be required to provide ID that proves your age. If you cannot provide ID that is valid and in date, you will be refused service.

We’re very proud to be a family-friendly festival. However, there are a few things to note before your family arrives:

 

We don’t allow anyone under 18 to be at the festival over the weekend without an adult of 18 or over. THIS APPLIES TO THE CAMPSITE TOO.
 

Children under 13 years old must be accompanied on site by an adult aged 18 or over at all times and will be issued with an ‘accompanied child’ wristband.
 

Any children under 13 without one of these wristbands, or any children under 10 found on their own, will be looked after by the welfare team and we will try and get in touch WITH A GAURDIAN.
 

All under-18s need to be accompanied by an over-18 through the entry and exit gates to the festival site and will be issued with an 'unaccompanied young person’ wristband.


ID checks will be carried out at the entry gates for anyone who looks under 21 years old.
