What happens when I arrive ?
All festival goers on arrival will have their bags searched by our security team on entry. If you are lucky enough to look under the age of 25 you will be asked for identification to prove your age and you will then be allocated a coloured wrist band according to your age. From then on bar staff will use this to identify if you are old enough to purchase alcohol. Therefore don’t forget your ID. If you have no wrist band you will be asked to leave the site. Those that are super organised and have pre-booked tickets, there will be a fast track admission area.
Ticket prices will increase on the day for those that have left it to the last minute. There is a maximum capacity and we want as many people to enjoy the event however we do have a maximum so we would recommend you don’t leave it to chance on the day as we may not be able to allow you entry.
