For the ultimate camper, watch the stars come out at night and ramp up your experience with Pre-Pitched Tents. Located in the Highside Family Friendly Campground, your tent is set up and waiting for you – choose from Single, Twin, Triple or Quad share.

The Campgrounds are also getting an upgrade to a brighter look and feel overall, with more amenities and showers, as well as improved ground protection. Live local music will also bring the Campgrounds to life over four nights (Thursday-Sunday).

Urban Alley is decked out again, with the Urban Chop Shop, Urban Artists and Custom Plates Urban Garage all returning.

A BMX stunt show will thrill onlookers, and fans will be flocking to the Fan Forum stages to meet their heroes and get those highly anticipated signatures and photos with the stars of MotoGP™.

Tickets are selling fast, and fans who want to experience VIP Hospitality will have to book in quick, with only 300 tickets remaining across the private suites.
