Useful Information

Don’t forget to drink plenty of water. Long waking hours, dancing and summer sun can increase your need. Safe drinking water is available at many stalls.


Do not bring your own alcohol to the Festival. All glass bottles will also be confiscated.

Please take care: drugs/alcohol cocktails can be lethal. Know your limits, and those of your friends. Drunk people can be very irksome! You’ll all have a much better Festival if you avoid over-doing it. If you are concerned that one of your friends requires assistance ask a steward or security personnel to point you towards The Medical Centre or Welfare Tent.

Don’t drive under the influence of drink or drugs when leaving the Festival. For more information visit

Challenge 21

The Festival operates a ‘Challenge 21’ policy for alcohol sales. If you look under 21, you will not be served alcohol unless you can prove you are over 18 – by presenting ID, or by wearing a ‘Challenge 21’ wristband. These will be available from the Property Lock-ups on site, on presentation of a valid form of photo ID. The following are acceptable forms of ID:

  • UK Driving Licence
  • Valid Passport
  • If you don’t want to bring your passport or driving licence, use a PASS ID.
