Shopping on Trumpet Lane

Trumpet Lane is the 100m long road that links the rest of the camp site to the main area. This busy thoroughfare has now become the birth place of the Trumpet Lane Markets, smack in the middle of the two stages. With a central communal lounge, patrons can relax after browsing the wide array of stalls, including herbal teas, chai, face painting, henna and hair wraps, goodies to eat just to name a few...

Booze

The Green Goat and Hill Top bar will be back again!!

The Green Goat is situated in the middle of Trumpet Lane and is home to the second stage. This stage unrolls a great selection of bands and DJ’s throughout the day and into the early hours of the night. As the Green Goat has an open front with plenty of bar space it’s also a perfect place to make friends with passing patrons while enjoying a cold one.

BFarts

Although the festival itself is just getting its legs we feel it’s important to start a centre point where people can milk their creative teats. This group is external from the main committee and is keen to hear from you if you’re interested in joining.

No Dickhead Policy

Dickhead behaviour is not admired at Blenheim and this is why several years ago we introduced a "No Dickhead Policy".

This is a self-policing policy, where in the event that someone slips up momentarily, a solid citizen will quietly and politely point out that their behaviour fits into the "Dickhead" category, and that will be the end of it. If someone chooses not to listen to the solid citizen and acts like a real dickhead, they will spend the rest of the event sitting next to a security guard or dealing with police and will be prohibited from buying a ticket to future events.
