Local Residents

Hello and welcome to the Noisily Festival local residents page!

Communicating and engaging with local residents is really important to us, we want to build a positive relationship with our local community. We believe this is an essential ingredient to creating a successful and sustainable event, we really cannot do this without your support, and we wouldn’t want to either.


The aim of this web page is to inform you about the measures we have put in place to make the festival a positive experience for all involved, and our commitment to protecting the local environment.

Here you will find information specific to locals, including:

  • Event opening times and pre-event timings.
  • Traffic management measures.
  • Details of how to get in touch with us and opportunities to give feedback to us.
  • Details of how to get involved with the event.
  • Locals tickets – Eligibility and how to apply for them.

Before we get on to all that, here are a few words from Will, co-founder of Noisily Festival and a Leicestershire resident from birth.


Hello, and thank you for your interest and support for Noisily Festival of Music and Arts.

My family and I have lived in this beautiful area of the world for a very long time. Personally I have a very deep love and connection with this beautiful part of England, which I was lucky enough to grow up in and we are lucky enough to call home. 

I would like to thank you for all of your support for the festival. As you will know from our communications, we are trying our best to cause as little disruption as possible for the local community, whilst curating a very special experience for all those that attend and enjoy the festival each July.

We have come on leaps and bounds since we first opened our gates 12 years ago, and are now an internationally recognised event with attendees coming from all over the world. We are a multi faceted festival, providing swathes of content in the mediums of art, music and wellness, promoting environmental consciousness, and kindness and compassion amongst our guests. 

We are aiming to be as inclusive as possible with people who live and run businesses locally, and are improving on this year on year. Wherever possible we use local suppliers and encourage our food traders to do so, and are committed to open and honest dialogue with everyone who lives in the area.

We wish you all the very best, 

The Noisily Team

Event Opening times:

The Festival opens to the public at around 12:00 on Thursday 6th July and closes at 23:30 on Sunday 10th July. The campsites will close on Monday 10th July at 14:00.


Traffic Management:

We are regularly engaging with local parish councils to provide information about the festival and how it will impact the local area, including traffic management. The main traffic management measures will consist of signage being deployed from the major roads and within the local area as well as speed reduction and traffic regulation on the approach of the festival gates. These measures will be in place from 23rd June until 19th July. 

We will start our build-up from 23rd June with a few vehicles accessing the site to make deliveries. Traffic will increase from 4th July when our traders start to arrive.  

The majority of attendees will arrive on Thursday 6th July from noon until Friday 7th July. We expect low level traffic on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July. The majority of attendees will leave the site on Monday 10th July by 14:00; and all traders will leave by 20:00.

We will have three ways for you to get in touch with us:
