Where is the festival?

Dimensions Festival is based in an abandoned fort in Štinjan, a suburban area located above the northern shore of the City of Pula, Croatia.

Fort Punta Christo was built at the end of the 19th century by the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy to defend City of Pula, their main naval port.

The festival site is isolated but joined to our campsite (address below). It is unlike any other festival site in the world!

Campsite Address: Camping Brioni (formerly Puntižela), Puntižela 155, Štinjan, 52100 Pula, CROATIA

What local transports are available?

There are local buses running between the festival site and Pula city center – more info and schedule available here.

Taxis are also available and usually line up outside the festival gates.

Do I need to print my tickets?

You can show your ticket on your phone as long as the bar code is visible and can be scanned at the gate.

Can I buy or hire a tent when I arrive or do I need to book it in advance?

2-man can be purchased in advance and collected at the festival main gate or purchased on site. The prices of the tents reflect a better deal than bringing your tents as extra baggage with most airlines. 4-man tents are now sold out.

Remaining camping passes are available to purchase directly at the festival entrance.

 

I don’t need my space anymore – can I change the name on my booking?

Can I bring a Camper Van into the campsite?

However, we must ask that you adhere to the ‘no moving vehicles’ rule throughout the four days of the festival. You will not be allowed to drive your car or vehicle once set up – only to leave the site on departure.

In addition to the pass everyone staying in the Camper Van will need to purchase a normal camping ticket.

Pets are not allowed anywhere within the campsite and festival grounds. If you are looking to bring a pet, you will need to stay off-site.

We’re thinking of booking a hostel room or mobile Home but we’re not sure of who’s coming yet. Can we book a room without confirming names?

You’ll need to book and pay for the whole room at the time of booking, including adding names. If friends are undecided yet you can change their name at a later date for an admin fee.

 

It says I need a Credit card to book the Mobile Home?

Yes, there will be ATMs on the site. Please note that day ticket holders won’t be able to access these ATMs and need to take all the cash they need with them.

Disability Access

Disability Access at the Festival site

All disabled customers are welcome at Dimensions, but it is a greenfield site with particularly rough terrain in places. There are steep stony hilly sections of the site, meaning that sometimes access across the site is not that easy, especially in bad weather conditions. Please bare this in mind when booking for the event. Stewards however, will be around to assist.

There are a number of facilities in the campsite to accommodate disabled customer’s needs, however certain sections of the site may prove too difficult to navigate for certain disabilities. Not all disabled customer’s need use of these facilities but we will endeavour to assist with access and provide a free carer/PA ticket where required to ensure your stay is comfortable and most of all enjoyable.

Should you have any enquiries regarding the access and facilities at the festival, please email info@dimensionsfestival.com

 

Disability Access at the Opening concert

Customers wishing to attend the opening concert with a carer can arrange for a free carer ticket by emailing info@dimensionsfestival.com
The opening concert has 2 x easy access toilets.

Drugs Policy

We have a zero-tolerance policy and discourage you to bring drugs (including soft drugs) to the event. Public use of drugs at the event will result in removal. Please respect these regulations.

The Croatian authorities take a very strict stance on drug use. At the very least you may spend the night in a cell and can expect a hefty fine (minimum £300).
