The Big Tent Festival is located by Falkland village in Fife, North of Glenrothes. It's only a few miles from Markinch and Ladybank train stations, a few miles from Glenrothes Bus Station and there's regular services from Edinburgh and Dundee .

The campsite is adjacent to the main festival site. The festival will be signposted right through and there will be stewards to guide you as you get nearer. For those coming by car, please follow the AA signs to the festival. Do not go through the village of Falkland - it isn't the way to the car park! Have £5 ready for your festival parking (that's for the whole weekend).

Come on foot, bike, bus or train - or tripshare!

We have been working with our partners at Stagecoach, SESTRAN, Friends of the Earth and ScotRail to offer you sustainable ways to get to the festival.

By Train

See ScotRail for timetables of trains from Edinburgh and Dundee to Markinch and Ladybank, the local train stations. Did you know that ScotRail also run a Kids Go Free ticket - up to two children can travel free with every adult off-peak all week.

By Bus

There will be free local buses to the festival from the local railway stations and other points. Check nearer to the time for exact locations.

So that's free train journey for the children, free pick up from the railway station and free festival entry for children - not bad!

By Bike

The cycle park at Big Tent is located close to the festival site and there will be facilities available to secure your bike. Also SUSTRANS have created a bike route from Ladybank Falkland (see here for the map of routes to the event). Bikeworks will be running a bike clinic so if your bike has any moans, groans or squeeks, bring it along and get the bike docs to check it out.

By Sestran and Tripshare

If you can't manage by public transport and are bringing your car, then think about sharing your journey. Our friends at SEStran have sponsored a special Big Tent Tripshare web site which allows you to meet up locate people who want to drive or cycle to Big Tent and are looking for some 'buddies'.
