Trader FAQs

1. When is the festival?

The festival will take place:

Thursday 3rd August – Sunday 6th August
Gates open at circa 15.00 on 03.08.17. The only stage open is the barn stage. The main stage is not open on the Thursday night. The full site is accessible though and no matter where your pitch is, you will have punters exploring the site and you will have a steady trade.

The festival ends early hours of the Sunday morning, there is no music Sunday day, but breakfast / lunch trade is allowed.

Traders are encouraged to be onsite preferably by the evening of Wednesday 3rd August, however you will be allowed onsite no later than 12noon on Thursday 3rd August.

It’s really important you are on site by 12 noon on the 3rd of August. If you arrive any later we will be breaching our health and safety regulations (no moving vehicles on site throughout the festival).

2. What legal documents are required?

We require all traders to provide proof of Public Liability Insurance.
Traders that are using electrical and/or gas appliances must provide us with appropriate Risk Assessments, and all electric & gas appliances need proof of recent safety checks.
Finally all traders that are serving food and/or drink must supply us with UK Health & Safety Food Handling And Hygiene Regulation document.
We require this documentation on or before the 30th June 2017 prior to the festival.

3. What is the festival capacity?

The festival capacity is 3,000 for 2017. We anticipate selling out as we have done for the last 10
years.

4. What kind of Pitch Fee can I expect to pay?

We have a tariff system in operation.
Main Meal: £1,000

We actively encourage new businesses – if this is your first season trading let us know and we will
find a pitch fee that works for you.
Pitch fees are payable in advance by BACS transfer.

5. What is your waste disposal & recycling policy?

Fieldview is a green festival. All packaging used to serve food and beverages on site must be
recyclable.

Any trader waste must be disposed of in the recycling bins provided onsite.
A £50.00 cash rubbish deposit is also payable, which will be returned to you upon leaving the
festival, provided your pitch is left in a clean and tidy condition.

6. Are there any rules around what I can and can’t sell?

Fieldview is a not for profit event which donates to several environmental and sustainable
charities. In line with our corporate policy we would like it if you can adhere to the following rules:

1- No coca-cola allowed for sale on site
2- No Pepsi allowed for sale on site
3- No alcohol allowed for sale on site
4- No legal highs or drug paraphernalia
5- All packaging of food and beverage items must be able to be recycled.

7. Are we expected to take staff food vouchers?

If you are a food and beverage trader you are expected to participate in our food voucher
scheme for volunteers, staff and artists. We will pay you £3.00 per voucher accepted (you can
limit the amount of vouchers you accept to 50 per day). You can select items from your menu
that the vouchers are redeemable against or create a special “staff dish” that fits in with the
budget.

8. Can I take a break and leave my pitch?

Sure! Just leave someone else in charge – for the purposes of health and safety your pitch must
be staffed at all times.
