Your festival ticket includes:

  • accommodation for four nights
  • all your food (if in Castle accom)
  • five days in a stunning forest park on the edge of the beautiful Mournes
  • time to connect back with your CU
  • some of the world’s top Christian speakers
  • deep times of worship together
  • workshops and teaching specifically designed to equip you for life on campus in Ireland
  • after hours entertainment
  • your Festival Guide
  • access to some of the best student resources
  • dozens of other boring things like health and safety, insurance, security, festival permit, electric, limited publicity costs

What your ticket does not include:

  • our staff costs or expenses – we pay for our own places there, and work many hours to put this on
  • expensive speakers or band costs – most of our speakers and bands last year came free of charge or with minimal cost, as they believe in the vision of EQUIP – we’re very thankful to them.
  • profit for CUI – we ran EQUIP at a massive loss last year, because we believed God would do great things across the island through such a launchpad – He did!  We still think this year we’ll make a small loss too.
  • transport to the venue – however, we do run discounted buses from any major city in Ireland, if there’s a demand for them.  See our transport page for more info.  Last year, one bus went from Dublin for €20 return.  This year we expect more buses.
  • food for campers.  Cooking together is part of the craic of the festival.  But for those who aren’t used to it, they can team up with others in CU.  New for this year, we’re trying to pilot a scheme where our mission partners run dinners for those camping for a small charge.  We’ll keep you in the loop with details!
