Critical Animals Accommodation

As it rolls ever nearer to Critical Animals 2011 and your trip to Newcastle you’re probably wondering where to stay. Luckily there are options a’plenty, and if you get in now you should still be able to find a good deal!

There are plenty of affordable hotels and hostels in the vicinity of the festival, with something for every taste – check out the accommodation information page at the This Is Not Art site. If this is out of your price range, or you just yearn for a more authentic experience, then maybe This Is Not Art’s legendary Tent City is for you! Hundreds of punters camp out at TINA every year, and many even regard it to be as much of an unmissable ‘event’ as the festival proper.

This Is Not Art has set up a temporary campground to provide festival goers with the cheapest accommodation option for the festival.

Open on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

The Campground is for those in tents, swags, vans and trucks, or those who wanted to sleep under the stars. So if you were unsure whether you could afford to stay for the whole five days of the festival – we’ve just answered your question!

It’s lo-fi and BYO everything, but Aunty Jenny and her team of lovely volunteers will do their best to make it feel like your home away from home – hot showers, cups of tea, and happy campers all around!

Click on over to the Tent City page on the TINA site for full information, pricing and directions on how to register.

We encourage all our Critical Animals attendees to get in touch with us if you have any questions while planning your trip, or require a little local knowledge. One early warning though: Newcastle is a city all too easily fallen in love with!
