Out & Wild has been designed for LGBTQIA women and those who are non-binary, but it is open to all. It is an inclusive space and we will be asking all attendees (including vendors, acts, volunteers and others) to agree to our code of conduct.

Our research (which included canvassing those who attended the first Out & Wild Festival) found that attendees were looking for an adult space. However, we are pleased to say that our parent company Out and About LGBTQ is looking to hold family focused events in the future for those who identify as LGBTQIA and non-binary. 

As much as we love dogs, things would get a little chaotic if we allowed dogs at the festival. So we are sorry say that you’ll need to leave your four legged friends at home.

Guide and assistance dogs are, of course, welcome.

We will of course adhere to the Welsh Government’s guidance and prospective directives that may be in place for the duration of the festival. We will make sure all attendees are aware of any procedures  in place well in advance of the festival.

You can arrive on any day during the festival to collect your wristband. We open for campers from 9am on Friday. And those with no camping passes can arrive at 10am and leave by 11pm.

Only acts, volunteers and facilitators can arrive on Thursday before 8pm. The Festival site will not be open, but toilets and showers will be available at the camping area. 

You must inform us if you are arriving on Thurs. 


The festival is located in a small village. There is a community shop which will be open limited hours (these will be published before the festival) which stocks basics. Please note it does not sell cigarettes or vaping products.

We will also have a few essential items at the campsite.
