Big Green Coach are the official ticket and travel partners to Sundown 2018, dropping off festival-goers at the official coach park on Friday and leaving on Monday.

There are five departure locations; Cambridge, Chelmsford, Colchester, Ipswich and London Victoria Coach Station.

Sundown organisers advise those dropping off festival-goers not to park in the Longwater Retail Park to avoid the unsafe walk along the road and over the roundabout.

Children under five are not permitted. Those over five pay the stated ticket price. Ticket prices start from £39.50.

There will be vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options at the venue.

The festival is returning with a vast range of food choices from Mac Shack, offering four cheese pasta, Mamma Joys Pizzeria with their stone baked pizzas and London Pie & Mash, bringing traditional, regional meals.

There will also be an Indian Grill curry house, Chinese and Thai street food, gourmet burgers and glazed doughnuts.
