Heading to Glastonbury?

Here is a useful guide to Glastonbury and what not to bring and what to bring, after years of traveling down to Worthy Farm for the epic festival weekend we have a few suggestions to ensure you don't miss any of your favourite bands. 

There are a huge number of artists playing over countless stages across the weekend with many bands playing multiple times over different stages so be sure your heading in the right direction. 

Allow 30-45 mins to get from one stage to another. 

Remember its about the Music so see as much as you can, the music goes on throughout the night and is one of the most exciting things about Glastonbury. No matter what the hour, there is something going on for you to get involved with, from chilling at the Sacred Space to partying like its 1990 down in Block 9 or Arcadia.

There really isn't a festival like it, if you are lucky enough to have tickets enjoy and be safe!

Bags for dirty clothes and rubbish


Mark valuables with house name and postcode so it can be posted back to you


Too much stuff so you can’t take it home again

Please don’t bring gazebos – they take up valuable tent space in the campsites plus an awful lot of them get left behind. We’d also rather you didn’t put tape around your enclosure of tents, please. It makes it harder for other people to get to their tents

Only food and alcohol for personal consumption can be brought onsite

Excess packaging – if you purchase something new for the Festival, please remove all the excess packing at home, before you arrive

Please don’t bring anything in a glass bottle (even perfume) it will be confiscated if found

You may be searched at the entrance for any items that may be used in an illegal or offensive manner – which will be confiscated. Persons suspected of carrying out illegal and/or offensive activities onsite may also be searched and face eviction. No portable laser equipment or pens are permitted

NO animals (except registered guide dogs), sound systems, generators, sky lanterns or kites, unauthorised fireworks, or wax flares

Persons using fireworks will be evicted from site and materials confiscated. No unauthorised tape recorders, professional film or video equipment are allowed onsite. Cameras for personal use are welcome
