At Middlelands, the fun extends far beyond the dancefloor. Headliners looking to keep the party going into the late-night hours are encouraged to explore Conqueror’s Court, the central meeting spot and place-to-be outside of festival hours. Conqueror’s Court is packed with all your essential amenities, as well as tons of interactive activities and fun games for you and your whole festival squad. It’s the perfect place to chill out, get creative, recharge or, heck, keep dancing even longer.
Located in the heart of the Middlelands camping area, Conqueror’s Court is accessible to campers 24 hours a day and open to non-camping Headliners during festival hours and until 4am after each festival day.
Conqueror’s Court features medieval-inspired shopping, including a farmers market and a butcher shop, where you can hunt for goods for a true traditional experience. We’re also hosting communal bonfires, where weary adventurers can warm up and share stories from the Middlelands battlefield. Plus, Conqueror’s Court is stacked with lots of picnic tables, where you and your crew can meet for meals; roaming performers for your nonstop entertainment; arts & craft areas; sports competitions; and for-your-convenience services, including lockers, a general store, and an info station.
If you’re looking to refresh before bed or before the next set, Conqueror’s Court also offers a yoga and meditation center, as well as restrooms and showers. Need to recharge in more ways than one? Conqueror’s Court has charging stations, food options, free water refill stations, and bar areas—as well as access to the Enchanted Grove, a maze of relaxing pathways through the trees, complete with lights, plenty of seating, art installations, hammocks and swings.

As a bonus, we’ve also put together a schedule of interactive games and activities to heighten your Middlelands experience.
On Wednesday night, campers will be greeted with an early-arrival bonfire. The following night, team Bassrush is hosting a bass-heavy pre-party, open to Middlelands campers only, featuring 12th Planet, Crizzly, Space Jesus, Carlyle, Madhatter and Tim Gunter. Campers are invited to Conqueror’s Court Friday through Sunday mornings for arts & crafts and bike-decorating sessions, where you can add some seriously medieval bling to your outfits and two-wheelers and then ride back to the festival grounds in style. We’ll also have hula-hoop classes, nightly bonfires, and campsite competitions.
Top off every night with our official Knight Owl After-Hours Parties—hosted by our very own, Headliner-favorite Night Owl Radio—where some of the biggest Middlelands artists will be throwing bass in your face all weekend long, including NGHTMRE, Ekali, What So Not, and Snails. Best of all, everyone is invited: The after-parties are open to all Middlelands campers and festivalgoers till 4am.
