Festival Information



A limited number of disabled parking spots are available to those who hold a valid blue badge. Spaces are limited and must be booked in advance.

Book a disabled parking space.

Those who have been to CBTC in the past will know that there is no on site parking available as direct access to the site is not car friendly on a festival weekend and space is extremely limited. However, if you are a blue badge holder, you can apply for an on site space for Craic by the Creek. You must have a valid blue badge and valid weekend tickets. Please see the form below to apply. Please be aware that spaces are extremely limited and cars parked on site are parked at the risk of the owner.

To access the site, please put the festival site postcode into your sat nav - SK6 5JE. This postcode will take you to the start of Etherow country park where you will be stopped by a security guard. Please present the pass to the security guard to be granted access. You may be required to wait a short while to allow oncoming traffic to exit the festival site. Once instructed to do so, please drive through the country park and onto the festival site where you will be instructed further by the staff on the gate.

With your pass, you will be able to park in one of the designated parking spaces in the staff car park. If you are camping, please park up before unloading your car. You must display your parking pass in the dash of your car.


Please be aware that you may not hear back until much closer to the festival date.
