Riverside Site

Opening onto a glorious stretch of the River Wye and a stone’s throw from the Globe Site, you’ll find Riverside in its new home with more on offer than ever before. The Spiegel Tent and our largest festival venue The Arena, now quadruple the size, hosts our biggest debates and talks throughout the day. The Hat carries headline acts followed by wicked late night parties, and nearby you can dance all day and night long with our very first all-day disco at the Riverside Disco. Be amazed at the Circus in the Spiegel Tent at night, and don’t forget your mask for the late night balls. Join a Long Table Banquet at the Waterfront Bar & Kitchen, catch a HotDoc at the Cinema or browse the market stalls in the Park. If you want to unwind away from the mayhem, make your way to Bohemia and The Spa or Pacha Mama. And don’t leave without trying the Ferris Wheel for a wondrous view of Hay and the Black Mountains.
