Staying Safe

As well as looking at the information below, we recommend visiting festivalsafe.com

Festival Safe is a cross-industry initiative designed by festival organisers and industry professions. It’s a great resource where you can access useful information in an easy to follow, fun and engaging way before you head to a festival.

Crime Prevention and Personal Safety

Festivals are peaceful and safe events, but due to the large numbers of people in one place, some crime can unfortunately occur. The most common crime is theft, and this can be from about your person or from tents if you are camping with us. Security staff and stewards patrol the site and CCTV cameras are employed – both on and off site – for crime prevention purposes.

You can help yourself by following the advice below. Don’t let criminals spoil your enjoyment by committing crime against you or your friends.


Lock and empty your vehicles. Leave the glove compartment open and conspicuously empty.

Only bring what you can afford to lose.

Mark your property: clearly label your gear with your postcode. Obvious indelible markings will significantly reduce the risk of things being stolen and will increase the chance of their return if found. Tag your keys with a phone number and a friend’s address.

Register your property before you go on a national and free database called www.immobilise.com

Pickpockets do work some festivals, so be alert when walking around, wear rucksacks in front of you, and women should have crossover handbags with the flap against your body.

Personal Safety

Keep with friends or people you trust: unfortunately at any large gathering a small number of people attend so they can prey on others. You present a far less vulnerable target as a group than you would on your own. Do not go off with people you don’t know – speak to a steward, police officer or head to the welfare tent if you split up from friends.

Make sure your mobile phone is fully charged for the day.

Avoid dark areas and take advantage of the extra lighting along main thoroughfares and in the car parks.

We know you want to have a drink or two, but do consider that drinking to excess can leave you vulnerable, so as friends DO look out for each other. Arrange a meeting point with your friends if you get split up from each other, so you know where to head to.

Report to stewards anyone you think is acting aggressively.

Drugs. Quite simply – don’t bring them. Legal Highs DO NOT mean they are safe.

We look forward to seeing you and making sure you have a safe but brilliant festival!
