Unfortunately we’re unable to offer any refunds for tickets, unless the entire event is cancelled.
There’ll be a token system in place for purchasing alcohol, with tokens available from the booths around the park. Be aware that you can only buy tokens with cash so we highly recommend a visit to nearby Dalkeith’s charming cash machines.
Licensing laws state that if you buy alcohol outside the event you won’t be able to bring it into the park. Our lovely door staff will be keeping an eye out for pint smugglers and you will be refused entry to the event, so please don’t try. Food and other drinks purchased outside the event are also not permitted in the arena and will be confiscated at the gates. However, we have plenty of great food and drink options available on-site at reasonable prices.
We’re all about supporting Dalkeith’s local bars, restaurants and cafes, but please bear in mind that Midstock is a family event. Our door staff can (and will) refuse you entry at their own discretion if you arrive drunk and disorderly.
Not on our watch you can’t. There’s some very cosy local hotels and B&B’s, why not give those a try? We’d advise you to book in advance.
If you’re registered disabled you may bring one carer along with you. You’ll need to show gate staff your disabled registration certificate.
No animals other than guide dogs are permitted inside the park.
We’ve never had any trouble with our phones, but this is entirely dependent on your network.
Yes. Upon arrival at the park, if you’re lucky enough to look under 25 you’ll be asked to provide proof of age. Over-18’s will be given a wristband which allows them to purchase alcohol and you’ll need it to re-enter the park if you leave, too.
Our favourite way to get to Dalkeith Country Park is by train. The new Border’s Railway offers regular trains to Dalkeith’s Eskbank station, saving you the trouble of parking or driving. If you don’t feel like walking from the station, the number 40 Lothian Bus will take you to the park. For more details and alternative routes, check out our Find Us section.
At the heart of Midstock festival there’s local music, local food and local fun; what more could you want on a balmy September day? Midstock invites families, music-lovers and party animals alike to Dalkeith Country Park to enjoy the late-summer sunshine with us.
