We have made some changes to the Love Supreme Festival bus service to ensure a smoother service. If you are intending on using this service please make sure to read the below, even if you have used the service at previous festivals or have already booked your tickets, as some details may have changed.
FESTIVAL BUS SERVICE FROM BRIGHTON (RETURNING VIA LEWES)
The festival bus service operates from Brighton and will return to Brighton via Lewes. Please note, this service operates on Saturday and Sunday only and we do not offer a service to the festival from Lewes; we recommend you use the trains or taxi’s when the service is not operating.
Festival Bus Service Options
The festival bus service operates from Brighton and will return to Brighton via Lewes. Buses depart from the back of Brighton Station on Stroudley Road (it is signed from the station as ‘Pick-up Point’) and from the Bus Station at the festival site.
Options are as follows:
Option 1 - Open Return journey from Brighton to Love Supreme Festival. Outbound journeys from 10am to 4pm (10am, 11am, Midday, 12.30pm, 1pm, 1.30pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm) and you can select your travel time when you purchase your tickets (link). Return journeys go via Lewes and run on a regular basis from 7pm to 3am.
Option 2 - Single journey from Love Supreme Festival to Brighton via Lewes. This route will run on a regular basis from 7pm to 3am.
Option 3 - Off Peak Return - these tickets will go on sale when the Open Returns sells out and are valid before 10pm and after 1am.
Option 4 – Off Peak Single from Love Supreme Festival to Brighton via Lewes – valid before 10pm and after 1am.
Festival Bus Service – Travelling back from the Festival
Return buses run at 7pm and 8pm and then on shuttle basis between 9pm and 2.30am on Saturday and Sunday only.
Please note that the peak time for travel away from the festival by shuttle bus is 10pm to 1am on both Saturday and Sunday. These times will be extremely busy. If you wish to avoid crowds, then please make sure to travel outside these times.
If your ticket states ‘off peak’, it is not valid for travel between 10pm and 1am. If you turn up within these hours, our stewards will try to assist you but you may have to wait.
Festival Bus Service Tickets
Make sure to buy your tickets in advance here (here) if you are planning on using the festival bus.
Please note our bus drivers do not take cash so you will not be able to purchase bus tickets at the bus pick up point, if you arrive at Brighton station without a ticket you will have to purchase a ticket online prior to boarding. If you turn up at the festival bus station without a ticket, the ticket booking link will be advertised on signage so you can purchase your ticket prior to travel.
We plan our bus service to meet demand and at peak times it may be sold out so if you do not purchase in advance, we cannot guarantee there will be space at the time you wish to travel.
If you do turn up without a ticket or outside of the time that your ticket is valid for, our stewards will try to assist you but you may have to wait.
