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. No more than two dogs per owner.
Dogs belonging to members of crew will also need a ticket.
Personal assistance dogs (guide dogs) will need to arrange with us in advance. Registered trained assistance dogs will not need to pay for a ticket.
If you want a dog ticket you will need to buy one via our Bookitbee ticket site. If you need assistance, have questions or concerns, or if you are bringing a personal assistance dog, please email to let us know – firstname.lastname@example.org
Dog tickets (£75) include a £35 returnable ‘good behaviour’ bond.
- No liability attaches to the festival or any of its members for any action by a dog or its owner and by bringing your dog into the festival grounds you acknowledge your responsibility and liability for its actions.If you are requested by any of the stewards or security personnel to better control your dog back please do so.
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 designated areas around the edges of the site, where people can walk with their dogs.
- Pick up your dog’s mess. There will be scoop bags available at the Info Tent. Dispose of these bags in the designated dog poo bin.
- Pay attention to the needs of your dog and other festival-goers. Please be respectful and make sure your dog is not barking excessively. 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 Info Tent and notify the nearest steward if you witness a stray dog or a dog under insufficient control on the site.
- Dogs must be kept within the designated boundaries of the festival
- Dog identification will need to be worn at all times. Dogs and their owners will be photographed for easy identification during the festival. These photos will be deleted after the festival has ended.
Behaviour which will result in forfeit of deposit:
- Owner allowing a dog to wander loose around the festival site.
- Owner not responsibly disposing of their dog’s mess.
- Owner not looking after their dog, resulting in festival crew having to manage the dog.
Behaviour which may result in removal from the festival:
- We would like to remind you that dogs should be kept on a lead at all times. Any naughty dogs (or owners!) will be asked to leave, so make sure you look after them responsibly.
- Anybody with a dog considered by the security personnel to be a nuisance to other people on the festival site, may be asked to leave the site and refused permission to re-enter, unless they have made arrangements for the dog to be looked after outside of the festival site.
Off Grid Festival 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. Off Grid Festival 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 owner and the livestock that is living on the site. We hope you and your dog have a great festival.
