WITH the Million Dollar Bash fast approaching, the organisers have issued a last-minute guide for would-be festival goers.

The highly anticipated one-day festival is taking place this Saturday ­— a homage to and a celebration of the 1969 Isle of Wight Festival that featured Bob Dylan.

All Wight Now, organiser of the celebratory event to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1969 festival, has issued the following advice:

Tickets/admission: Tickets can still be bought online but will also be available on the day at the box office ­— card payments can be taken.

Car park/access: Access to the car park will be available from 10.30am onwards. Gates will open by 11am. There will be a disabled car park next to the site entrance.

Card or cash? Bring both ­— card payments will be possible at the box office and bar as well as some other stalls, including the merchandise stalls. We are hoping to have a range of signed merchandise available from the artists appearing on the day.

Stand or sit? Attendees may bring folding chairs to the event, but are asked to use them sensibly and not in a way that blocks access routes, etc.

Will I get wet? Both stages and the exhibition will be undercover. We are not anticipating bad weather but it will mean that shelter from rain (or sun) will be available.

A dementia-friendly festival? The Bash is ‘dementia friendly’. Trained stewards will be patrolling the site at all times and will be able to assist with any issues that may arise. Appropriate signage and information will be on site as well as a quiet tent for any who may need to use it.

Do carers go free? Provided they have proof of identity, Carers will be admitted to the event free (one carer per ticketholder).

Can I bring a picnic? Yes, though concessions will be on site serving food and drink. But no alcohol or glassware of any description may be brought onto the site.

Are dogs allowed? No dogs, other than assistance dogs, will be allowed on the site.

Can I camp? There is no camping, as the Bash is a one-day event, but drivers with campervans may stay overnight (Saturday/Sunday) in the free car park.
