Terminal V is the UK’s largest indoor music festival held twice a year in a sprawling multi-warehouse complex site in the grounds near Edinburgh airport.

We listened to feedback from previous Terminal V events and have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to continually improve the experience. Our primary objective is to provide a safe, enjoyable and unforgettable experience for everyone involved.  Here are some new and improved areas for Easter 2020 – New Horizon :

Public safety and management of large crowds is an issue we take very seriously.  So is providing a great customer experience to you.  We have experienced lengthy queuing at peak times on the past 2 events and appreciate this can be frustrating.

Over the past few months, we have been working closely with our operations team, security and the local authorities to improve the process of entering Terminal V at all times.  Expect a much smoother entry to Terminal V this April.

We’re very excited to announce that the Terminal V festival site is evolving once again.

Expect a bigger and redesigned layout, combining elements from the previous events + more, alongside 5  newly designed exciting stages.

We now have 3 warehouse stages, and 2 outdoor  (covered and heated).  The mighty Area V is of course back, whilst the The Greenhouse and Sneaky Pete’s return due to popular demand, whilst Green Velvet’s La La Land Stage will be implemented in a brand new warehouse concept, to be done for the first ever time.

And last but not least, The Terminal stage is back, but not as you know it, with Bonobo’s Outlier concept taking over in a way never seen before, guaranteed to blow your mind.

At the last event, we introduced a cashless wristband payment system. It’s a relatively new technology used at festivals around the world, but it proved to be problematic(with some technology issues still to be ironed out) and questionable whether it was worthwhile for a 1 day festival.

For the next event, we will be returning to Token System used in previous events. You will be able to buy these on site at specific Token Booths via cash/card/contactless and each token is eco-friendly.

This is a step taken to reduce queuing and simplify/improve your experience at Terminal V.

Designing a huge capacity warehouse complex is a massive task but we’re dedicated to creating unique spaces and unforgettable experiences so we’ve been looking for new ideas and concepts that push the boundaries of what a music festival is.

We’ll continue to commission the World’s leading audiovisual specialists and contemporary sound and light artists to collaborate with our dedicated local teams of set designers and dressers to create one colossal adventure electronic music playground to explore and discover.

Water has always been free at Terminal V, but we’d like to make it even easier for you to find it.   This means, water points shall be more clearly sign posted and accessible, with water points being available at multiple areas and all bars,  with eco-friendly cups provided throughout the day and evening.

We will generally be making it even easier to obtain Free Water all over the festival site.

Over the past few years we’ve seen the pinnacle of music and DJ talent from around the World perform at Terminal V. We’ve shared some incredible moments with you and together we’ve witnessed some monumental sets and performances.

Never ones to rest on our laurels we’re committed to keep pushing this forward and our Easter line up is our best yet. What’s more, we’ve listened to feedback and broadened our boundaries to include a slightly more diverse program that fits with our core focus of bringing the World’s leading performing artists to Scotland.

We have increased the number of bars across the site both inside and also in the outside areas to further reduce queuing times.  We will also have a non-alcoholic bar on site for the 1st time ever, catering to customers more who do not wish to drink alcohol at a music festival.
