The safety and welfare of the festival-goers is the number one priority.
We’re introducing a P.R.O.T.E.C.T welfare policy to make sure we’re still meeting our aims of looking after the young people on site.

Protecting our festival-goers is our biggest priority.

Reducing the risks of underage drinking is critical to achieving this.

Over 18s
Over 18s are allowed to bring enough alcohol on site for themselves. Re-entry with alcohol is not permitted.

Text In
Over the weekend we have set up a text in number so you can let us know discretely if you spot any issues. We will send out a pack closer to the time with info in it.

Empower the People
We’ve set up Campsite Safety Net, a system that encourages you to look out for your neighbours and report anything you’re unhappy about to a member of the security team.

Care Team
We’ve doubled our welfare provision to improve the care and security provision in the campsites. These teams are dedicated to the safety of under U18s

Take Action
Where Over 18s are found supplying alcohol to under 18s, we will take action. Vulnerable young people are our priority, we take this extremely seriously and we need to do this to protect them. This may result in prosecution by the police.

We operate an extremely strict RU25 policy at all onsite festival bars, so please, please remember your ID if you are lucky enough to look under 25 and would like to receive an adult wristband to allow you to purchase alcohol at the festival.  Please note, we reserve the right to deny access to anyone who cannot produce a valid form of ID.
