STAYING AT JUPITER ARTLAND

Set within an award-winning sculpture park, staying at Jupiter Rising is unlike any other festival. As a firmly independent and artist-driven event, we want to ensure the best possible experience for artists and audiences alike, so we are intentionally keeping numbers on-site below 1,000. We hope this gives everyone the opportunity to fully explore the programme up-close, never waste time queuing, and enjoy the beauty and serenity of the natural landscape.

To date, we have hosted two overnight festivals at Jupiter and we constantly seek to improve our services. This year, we are introducing a choice of campsites, showers, recycling and phone charging. The only thing we can’t control is the weather, so sensible packing and a decent tent is recommended.

If you have any questions that aren't answered below, get in touch at enquiries@jupiterartland.org

GENERAL CAMPING + LIVE-IN VEHICLES

Located in the paddock and just a stone’s throw away from all amenities, you will be sleeping in the heart of Jupiter Artland's five-star sculpture garden, with views of Charles Jencks' iconic Cells of Life landforms, and Marc Quinn's other-worldly Lovebomb.

The general campsite provides the opportunity for no-fuss camping. Just bring your tent, find your perfect spot and set up, easy. Families are welcome in the general campsite. General camping is included in the cost of your ticket.

The general campsite will be serviced by nearby toilets and shower facilities.


You're welcome to bring your own live-in vehicle on site, provided you book this option in advance and in addition to General admission. A live-in vehicle ticket allows use of a 6m x 4m pitch, that all vehicles and additional structures (e.g. additional tents/gazebos) MUST fit within, otherwise you'll be required to buy multiple live-in vehicle tickets.

Please note there are no electricity or water hook-ups available on the live-in vehicle site.

MEADOW CAMPING

In the unique and serene setting of the wildflower meadow down by the lake, our meadow camping offers comfort and luxury in the form of bell tents available to book for up to four guests.

The Meadow camping area is conveniently located for the main festival area, but follow the festoon lighting to the separate Meadow campsite to find your ready-made bell tent. Perfect for those who want to be able to relax in more style at the end of the night.

Tents are 100% cotton canvas, meaning they are waterproof and breathable. Each tent comes fully erected with four memory foam mattresses, a waterproof carpeted floor, two side tables and electric lighting with a mobile phone charging station close by. The booking cost is per tent which can fit a maximum of four inhabitants. All inhabitants are required to book separate General Admission tickets as well.

The Meadow camping site will be serviced by their own toilets facilities.

To keep the Meadow campsite as a luxury option, there are a limited number of tents available. Please book well in advance.

Book your bell tent here.

ACCESSIBLE CAMPING

Accessible camping is located in the meadow, a short distance away from the main stages. An accessible toilet and charging point are provided. To help us prepare, please let us know in advance if you require an accessible camping pitch.

Visitors are welcome to drop bags near the campsite before parking in our allocated accessible car park spaces. Our stewards are also happy to assist with carrying bags and putting up tents.

If you have specific access needs, would like to reserve an accessible camping pitch, or want to apply for a free carer ticket, get in touch at enquiries@jupiterartland.org or call 01506 889900.

Further access information about the site and the programme is available on our Access Page.

SWIMMING

Grab your swimming gear, we are jumping in the lake! Take time out to enjoy a refreshing dip in the cool waters of the lake, a perfect spot to soak up some sun, immerse yourself in nature and see sculpture from internationally acclaimed artists including Christian Boltanski and Tania Kovats from a different perspective.

Please swim responsibly. There will be a lifeguard present at certain times during the day on Saturday and Sunday. For your own safety, please don't swim at night or after a few drinks.

FAMILIES

Young people are more than welcome to be part of Jupiter Rising and we promote a family-friendly atmosphere at the festival. Part of the general camping area will be set aside for families and there will be artist-led workshops throughout the weekend, as well as kid-friendly screenings during the day - and of course the resident Jupiter donkeys to admire!

PAST EVENTS

Jupiter Rising is borne out of the success of ROMANTICRASH! in 2018 and Lunarnova Campout in 2017.

ROMANTI-CRASH! (28-29 July 2018)
Curated by Sian Dorrer (ACID PRAWN) and Matilda Strang (SUPERNORMAL), ROMANTI-CRASH! presented an anarchic and immersive deconstruction of the quintessential 'big day', interweaving ideas about the evolving nature of matrimony with sound, performance, discussion and creativity.


Lunarnova Campout (26-27 August 2017)
Glasgow-based duo Ruby Pester and Nadia Rossi produced an overnight event at Jupiter Artland focusing on finding hope in the dark. Responding to nocturnal rituals, notions of destruction and renewal that come with cycles of the moon, Pester & Rossi invited performances from artists and musicians, and invited participants to camp overnight in the grounds with site-specific events happening between sunset and sunrise.

UNIQUE LANDSCAPE

Jupiter Artland is an award-winning contemporary sculpture garden located just outside Edinburgh. Founded in 2009 by philanthropist art collectors Robert and Nicky Wilson, Jupiter Artland has grown into one of Scotland’s most significant arts organisations and was nominated for ArtFund’s Museum of the Year in 2016. In 2018, Jupiter Artland was named a five-star venue by VisitScotland.

Set over 100 acres of meadow, woodland and indoor gallery spaces, Jupiter Artland is home to 35 permanent site-specific sculptures from artists including Phyllida Barlow, Charles Jencks, Anish Kapoor, Cornelia Parker and Antony Gormley, as well as a seasonal programme of exhibitions and events. Through its learning and outreach programme, Jupiter Artland aims to engage with every child in Scotland, by offering free school visits throughout the year.

Highlights of Jupiter’s 2019 programme include the opening of a swimming pool by Joana Vasconcelos, a retrospective exhibition of New York choreographer Trisha Brown alongside performances of Trisha Brown’s work as part of Edinburgh International Festival, and Jupiter Rising, Jupiter's weekend-long festival of art, performance and music.
