Why are bag checks necessary and what things can and can’t I bring into the Festival site?

Bag checks are necessary because some things are not allowed to be brought to the Festival. Examples of some things you can’t bring in are glass, alcohol, weapons, illicit substances, pets, chandeliers or cement mixers. We do let you bring in things such as picnic blankets, tablecloths, seating cushions, children and your in-laws, but only if you promise to take them all home again at the end of the day.

Seriously though, it is a condition of entry to the Festival that you permit a search of your possessions at the time of entry to the venue. Any item we may consider inappropriate can’t be brought in and may be confiscated. Refusal to consent to a search will prevent your entry to the Festival site.
