Do I need to buy a ticket?

Tickets can be purchased from the website.  Your order will be assigned a unique booking number and this will be posted out to you in September. You must bring this with you to the festival where you will be checked in. 

Only weekend tickets are available.  A small amount of day tickets will be released early September. 

All tickets are non-refundable or returnable.

All persons under the age of 16yrs need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.  Rockstock and Barrel reserve the right to check any individuals Identification on entry and throughout the festival.  


Why am I being charged a shipping cost on my purchase?

It isnt a shipping charge but the website software wont let me change it to 'booking fee'.  And that is what it covers.  Thank you for understanding with this!


Can I camp at the Festival?

You can camp at the festival if you have pre-paid the camping option when you booked your tickets on our website.  The early doors cost of camping is as follows; £5 Small Tent £15 Large Tent or Live in Vehicle.      All towing & non-sleeping vehicles must be parked in the festival car park ( chimneys site only).  You may park next to your camping unit on the river campsite.


What are the two campsites?

We have two different campsites. 

The Chimneys camp is directly behind the venue, it is the busier, more industrious and right at the heart of the festival. 

The River camp is a short walk across the road adjacent to the River Trent, very scenic with a fabulous view of the old power station chimneys.  


Can I bring my own food and alcohol to the festival?

You can bring your own alcoholic drinks to the festival to enjoy back at your camp.  It is a licenced premise and therefore you cannot take these into the festival arena.   Please support the food traders as they support the festival to continue! 


Can I apply to perform or trade at Rockstock Festival?

Applications to perform and trade at rockstock will open in the new year


And Finally! Is it a dog friendly festival?

 We are a dog friendly festival!  They are welcome to be in the campsite and the outdoor arena area.  We do not allow them in the indoor stage areas though.  Please always ensure your dog is on a lead at all times and you pick up after it.
