If you’re looking to drive to Big Day Out Maidstone, you may want to purchase an all-day parking ticket for our official event car park. There is limited council controlled car park available at the venue, however we have no control over that area and therefore cannot guarantee you a space.
Parking tickets will cost £15.00 on the day, as opposed to £10.00 in advance.
Please note, we strongly advise that you do not park in and around residential areas surrounding the park and doing so will run the risk of you receiving a parking ticket.

Our deposit schemes are for our adult and child (Aged 3-15) only.
Despite adult tickets currently being priced at £25.00+bf (booking fee), they will increase in price to £35.00+bf, which is the price of our new payment plans!
You will be required to pay 50% of the price upon completion of your transaction, which is £17.50+bf. You will then have to balance the remaining 50% payment before the event takes place (14/07/2018).
The process is identical for our children’s payment plan (two payments of £7.50+bf before 14/07/2018).

There is disabled parking at Mote Park, however this is not controlled by us and is controlled by Maidstone Borough Council. This means that Big Day Out cannot guarantee you a parking space within the disabled parking bays because we do not control the flow into this particular car park.
If you manage to get yourself a space in one of the disabled parking bays, then great but we cannot ensure that all disabled customers have a space reserved for them. Tickets for the Official Big Day Out Car Park can be acquired at www.bigdayoutfestival.com
