What you can/can’t bring

Due to licensing restrictions, you are not permitted to bring alcohol into the arena. There is a wide range of premium alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) drinks available for purchase from our bars.

You are allowed to bring soft drinks/water with you, as long as these are unopened/sealed when you arrive. Anything considered open will be confiscated on the gate. Camel packs (or similar) are not permitted.

As well as alcohol, no glass or sharp objects (including picnic cutlery) are permitted to be brought into the event and all guests will be subject to a brief search on entry as part of our security policy

Open fires and candles are strictly forbidden for safety reasons, as are disposable BBQs. Campers may use gas or charcoal burning BBQs. Campers must ensure gas canisters are not changed inside tents or caravans.

Dogs are not permitted anywhere on the festival site.

You can bring your own tables and chairs into the main arena but security may ask you to move them to the perimeter of the arena if they are causing any obstruction. Chairs and picnic tables are not allowed in the area between the sound desk and the front of the stage.

Small tents (up to a height of 1m) are permitted into the main arena, however, security may ask you to move them to the perimiter of the arena if they are causing any obstruction. Gazeebo’s and larger tents are not permitted on site.
