IMPORTANT INFO! Ticket collection + more...
It’s only 1 week until Desertfest 2022 kicks off & we are reunited after two long years to celebrate a decade in the desert… There is some important info to get your heads around, so please read the below carefully!
Please remember, as per previous years, Desertfest is a multi-venue festival working at an array of different capacities. Please plan your day accordingly & allow plenty of time to get into & between venues – especially if there are specific acts you want to see.
We cannot guarantee entry to all & every performance, but ALL venues will operate a queuing one-in-one out policy if they are at capacity.
ALL venues will allow re-entry throughout the day, so you are free to roam around.
TICKET / WRISTBAND EXCHANGE
ALL tickets for Desertfest, whether purchased via DICE or via Roundhouse, are digital eTickets that will need to be exchanged for a wristband on arrival. There are NO physical tickets being sent for the festival.
If you have not yet received your eTicket/QR code, please do not worry:
Roundhouse eTickets will be emailed 48hrs prior to the event.
DICE eTickets are visible in your app – you will only be able to activate your DICE QR code from 10am on the day of the show.
For tickets purchased via DICE (3-Day Weekend, Friday Day Tickets, Saturday + Sunday NON-Roundhouse Combo Ticket, 2020 Roll-Over) the ticket exchange will be open the following hours at Greenland Place, opposite The Black Heart:
FRIDAY – 12pm - 9pm
SATURDAY – 12pm - 9pm
SUNDAY – 12pm - 9pm
For tickets purchased via Roundhouse (Saturday Day Tickets, Saturday RH Only Tickets, & Sunday Day Tickets) the ticket exchange will be open the following hours at The Roundhouse:
SATURDAY – 12pm – 9pm
SUNDAY – 12pm – 9pm
Please ensure you go to the correct location depending on where your ticket was purchased from. If you purchased from Roundhouse, head to Roundhouse. If you purchased from DICE, head to Greenland Place.
Please ensure you have downloaded the DICE app in advance & have your eTicket(s) ready, along with proof of ID, on arrival. This will then be swapped for a WRISTBAND, which you need to wear at all times to ensure entry to the venues.
DESERTFEST ALLEY – GREENLAND PLACE + PROGRAMME / MERCH
Once again Greenland Place (the street outside Black Heart) is closed off exclusively for festival use. Open daily from 12pm, here you’ll find the ticketing exchange, official Desertfest/Desertscene merchandise plus outdoor seating & bars.
We also have some very special vendors this year; our friends at Dark Arts Coffee will be providing coffee & cocktails to get your motor going, including our limited-edition DF x Dark Arts Coffee Blend ‘Bong Water’.
The ‘Empress Emporium’, an independent, all-female owned, market will be hosting four unique vendors – Primitive Rising Jewellery, Cult Botanic, Haxan Clothing & Hjalte Jewellery.
The Electric Paintbrush will be offering tattoos from an exclusive flash sheet designed for the fest, to mark your Desertfest memory for life. Tattoos will be on a first come, first served basis & a deposit is required to hold your spot.
Camden Brewery will also have an outdoor beer van with 4 taps, so there’s no excuse to not stay hydrated…
This year’s Desertfest Programme has been produced by our friends at Fistful of Metal. Featuring one-off interviews with likes of Shellac, Electric Wizard & Orange Goblin, alongside info on set times & what to do in Camden.
