As it stands, and until the government says otherwise, restrictions around COVID has been lifted. Our internal policy is that attendees must be able to show evidence of being double vaccinated or a negative lateral flow on entry. Masks are currently optional and we would like to ask all attendees to follow signage on the site, which will advise policies. All measures are subject to change in the run up to the event, as per government guidance.


4. — Sustainability


Search Festival is committed to making our event more sustainable. Reducing the impact our festival has on the planet is a priority in every element of the festival - from planning and production sales and marketing. We want artists and festival-goers to arrive with an eco-conscious attitude and willingness to respect the site and our wider planet.

We view sustainability by the prism of its 3 pillars - Social, Economic, Environment. Having an intersectional approach to sustainability is essential to create a thriving ecosystem of local businesses, collaboration, circular economies and environmental awareness needed to tackle the current climate emergency. We engage ourselves to apply & promote a REFUSE - REDUCE - REUSE - REPURPOSE - RECYCLE mind frame in everything we do.

What can you do to help?
  • Bring a reusable water bottle
  • Recycle your waste in the appropriate bins
  • Eat at least one veggie meal onsite
  • Only use biodegradable glitters
  • Be kind, don’t be a bystander & Leave No Trace
