For anyone wanting more luxurious accommodation York has a wealth of hostels, hotels and B&Bs. See the Visit York website or your favourite travel companies to find them. The festival is being held on Campus West, so search for places close to postcode YO10 5DD.

Getting here

The festival is being held in several locations around the Campus West site of the University of York. A full interactive map of the campus can be found here.

York has regular train services to lots of places around the country. From the railway station there are buses up to every 20 minutes on Route 66 until 11:30pm each day (with Clubber Bus CB1 running a similar route overnight). See here for more information.

There is car parking around the campus, see the the university information page or the campus map for locations of the car parks. The pay and display car parks are free on evenings and weekends.

When to arrive and leave

We are still agreeing the final timings but dancing is likely to start at 8:30pm on Friday night and continue until 5pm on Sunday night.

The ticket desk will be open some time before the dancing starts on Friday night.

Who can attend

The festival is aimed at university students, but is open to anyone who feels young at heart and who has a spring in their step.

There will be something for everyone, whether you have never danced before or you have cupboards full of previous IVFDF t-shirts. There will be workshops for beginners, "experts" and everyone in between, and there will be lots of friendly faces if you look lost.

We are a welcoming festival which aims to be inclusive and accessible to everyone.

Accessibility information

We aim to make the festival inclusive and accessible to everyone, and will be publishing accessibility information soon.

Calling style

(what the people telling you how to dance will refer to you as)

All calling over the festival will be gender free, this has been fairly standard for IVFDFs in recent years.


Sadly Covid-19 is still with us. Please take the sensible precautions that you have been taking for the last few years, hand sanitizer stations will be provided around the festival for you to use and feel free to wear masks if you feel more comfortable doing so.

We will provide more information on our Covid-19 policy closer to the festival.
