Glastonbury 2019 kicks off this week, and with festival car parks opening tonight at 9pm, festival-goers will be getting their stuff ready.
It’s going to be a scorcher this week – with Met Office forecasters predicting it could be the hottest Glastonbury on record.
And with the festival itself kicking off on Wednesday, June 26, there isn’t much time left to pack.
You will no doubt already have your essentials – sun cream, toilet roll, tent pegs and wellies.
But you could have accidentally packed some prohibited items – and if you have, you may face being evicted from the site.
For example, something as innocent as a mirror could be confiscated.
While most items will just be confiscated, some of them may have worse consequences.
Glastonbury has also issued some more information on what not to bring:
• Do not bring more than you need. Remember you’ll need to take all it home again. Most things can be bought on site if necessary.
• Please don’t bring gazebos. They take up valuable tent space in the campsites. We’d also rather you didn’t put tape around your tent enclosures, please. It makes it harder for other people to get to their tents.
• Only food and alcohol for personal consumption can be brought onsite.
• Do not bring 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 made of glass. All glass will be confiscated if found, including perfume and mirrors.
• Please do not bring non-biodegradable body glitter. Biodegradable glitter can be bought from traders onsite.
• Please avoid the use of disposable wipes. Wipes – even biodegradable wipes, which quickly breakdown into micro-plastics – are problematic environmental pollutants. Plant fibre-based biodegradable wipes release greenhouse gases when they decompose, so we would like people to really try to use alternatives. A washcloth and a bar of soap works wonders!
• 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. NB: Confiscated items will NOT be returned.
