THE FESTIVAL

“Will I be able to fill up my water bottle?”
Water is a gift and such an important one to receive. There will be water stations dotted throughout our festival where you can top up and stay hydrated. 

“Will there be Wi-fi at Wild Roots?”
Wild Roots is a wi-fi free zone.  

“Will I be able to charge my phone?”
There will be a station where you can recharge. 

“Will there be an area for lost property?”
Yes, and you can find it on our map. (INSERT LINK) Belongings unclaimed by the close of the campsite on Monday morning will make their way to charity.  

“Will there be an ATM?”
All bars will take cards and give cashback while camping ticket holders will have a wristband to add cash.

Food and Drink
“How much alcohol can I bring to the festival?”
Each person can bring 1 litre of spirit or 24 cans or 2 litres of wine per person. This must be brought in on arrival, and once you get your wristband, you cannot bring in more. 

“Can I bring my alcohol into the festival areas?”
When bars are closed in the main areas, you can bring up to 4 cans or a small bottle of mixed spirit or equivalent of wine into them. You can’t bring alcohol into main areas when bars are open. 

Recycling
“What do I do with my rubbish?”
We care about the planet, so this is an eco-friendly festival. Recycle bins will be provided across the festival for you to dispose of your waste correctly. Everyone must leave the space exactly as they found it with no trace of you ever being there as a mark of respect and as a big thank you to the earth for letting us play there.  

We are a plastic-free festival. No plastic bottles will be allowed at the festival, and plastic water bottles will not be on sale. You can fill up your water with your stainless steel canister or buy one on-site to top up at the festival water stations. Wild Roots is also a glass free-space.

Transport
Will I be able to get to and from the festival from Sligo town?
Yes, there will be a regular shuttle bus service going to the festival on Friday for new arrivals, to and from town on Saturday for day ticket holders and back to town on Monday morning for those camping. The pickup and drop off stations are Sligo I.T. and the bus stop by the river across the road from Ulster Bank. (TIMES?)

We advise all-day ticket holders to use the shuttle bus service to and from the festival to avoid spending valuable festival time caught in traffic. 

Will there be taxis?
Taxis can do a drop-off and collect at the designated spot for Wild Roots festivalists near the campsite.
