Your festival travel covered!

Festival season is well upon us! We’ve already seen phenomenal performances from big names such as Kasabian at Isle of Wight and Ozzy Osbourne at Download but there’s more to come with Solange at Latitude, Liam Gallagher at RiZE and Kendrick Lamar at Reading & Leeds. It’s set to be an amazing summer – not to mention World Cup Fever and the current, actual heatwave!

If you are heading to a festival this year, why not consider Liftshare for your festival travel? Liftshare support many of the festivals which means you can find people with the same festival interests going your way. Check out to see which dedicated communities are available. Can’t see your festival? Use to find your journey match.

Not only does Liftshare enable drivers to fill their empty seats and reduce their driving costs, it gives those who choose not to drive the opportunity to travel in a more comfortable, cost-effective way – especially with all your festival luggage! What’s more, by travelling together in one car, you’ll help to reduce congestion to the festival, cut your carbon footprint, and have fun along the way – you may even make new festival friends!

“There’ll be no one going my way!” we hear you cry. Well, we’ve checked it out, and we can confirm, there are currently a whopping 522 members with journeys headed to new music festival RiZE in Chelmsford:



328 members with journeys headed to Reading Festival:




And 205 members from across the country with journeys travelling to Henham Park for Latitude festival:

An added bonus is, some festivals, like RiZE, Reading and Latitude, offer a priority car park for those that Liftshare, meaning you can get to the main gates quicker, and have less distance to carry all your festival luggage – please check the travel page of your festival for more information.


All you need to do to gain the benefits of liftsharing to your festival is:

Sign up to your dedicated Festival Liftshare scheme (or if your festival isn’t available);

Add your journey, whether you’re seeking a lift or offering seats in your car, and find your journey match;

Send or accept a request to share, form your Liftshare team and download your parking permit if needed to gain access to the priority car park.

In the infamous words of Kevin Bacon, “it’s a no brainer”!
