After 10 years of the festival being held on the island, Jersey Live was finally granted a camping licence in 2013 and ever since has grown even further into a full-blown music festival. Being able to offer official camping facilities close to the Royal Jersey Showground, La Route de la Trinité means visitors to the island can enjoy the full experience of camping nearby and enjoying the great entertainment on offer during the days and evenings at Jersey Live. Here are the top choices of campsites for the time of the festival (3rd-4th September 2016).
Beuvelande Camp Site
One of the island’s largest sites, this 10-acre area is the only AA five-pennant rated campsite in Jersey. It has great facilities on offer, including smart toilet block and a laundry room, as well as a restaurant and small supermarket on site. Not only that, but 50% of the pitches have an electricity supply so you can keep your phone and other devices charged for your time at the festival. There’s even a large heated pool if you get time for some swimming.
Rozel Camping Park
You’ll also find half of the pitches have electricity at Rozel Camping Park in St. Martin’s. It features similar amenities to Beuveland including multiple swimming pools and a shop stocking fresh food and drinks plus camping supplies and tools you might have forgotten to pack. The unique benefit of this site is its amazing view of the French coastline across the Channel.
Durrell Wildlife Camp
The island’s famously popular wildlife park also offers camping facilities within reach of the Jersey Live festival. This is one of the more luxurious options for camping in the area, but you’ll be glad of the amazing facilities and comfort on offer if you opt for this choice. Rather than a simple tent, you can relax in your own luxury camping pod complete with bathroom, kitchen and bedroom facilities.
