We expect that a lot of you will be travelling from far and wide, and if camping isn't your thing then here is some guidance on where else you can stay...

There are not any hotels or B&Bs within walking distance to Mekonville. If you're looking to sleep in a hotel then we would recommend the Pentahotel in Ipswich, next to the train station.

The lovely lot at the Pentahotel have arranged an exclusive discount for all Mekonville ticket holders! All you need to do is give them a call on +44 1473 694600 and name drop us - "MEKONVILLE" -  and you'll be entitled to...


3 nights at The Pentahotel in Ipswich

(28th, 29th, 30th July 2017)

£50.00 per night, per room

We hope to be organising a shuttle bus service to and from this hotel to Mekonville at regular intervals over the festival weekend, in exchange for a fee. If you're not keen on sleeping in a tent under the stars, then this is a great alternative.


There are several local taxi services that would be more than happy to bring you to and from the festival. We advise booking these IN ADVANCE but nearer the time. A taxi one way from Ipswich to Mekonville will take roughly half an hour and cost £30. We may run shuttlebuses and organise carpools to and from Ipswich so please contact us at if you are interested. It won't be possible for us to organise carpools to other locations unfortunately. 


There is plenty of accommodation including a hotel in the picturesque market town of Framlingham which is 15 minutes or so away from Mekonville. It also has a rather lovely castle and is the home of Ed Sheeran. There are one of two taxi companies in Framlingham which you should pre-book if you don't have a car.


As mentioned above please contact us if you are interested in a carpool or shuttle service from Ipswich. Yeee-ha!
