Some must-read rules for Glastonbury Festival
You might be regular attendee or a debutant with your attendance but it is always handy to be hard on some ‘Festival Rules’ to avoid any chaos on the ground.
So, the festival of summer is here. And, Glastonbury Festival 2017 is making news already with Johnny Depp joining the guest list and your ecstatic wait is understandable. The 5-day festival starting from June 21 is prepared to carry the history of most buzzing festival of England yet again and we are here to guide you through some dos and don’ts about the festival. You might be regular attendee or a debutant with your attendance but it is always handy to be hard on some ‘Festival Rules’ to avoid any chaos on the ground.
Always pack light for festivals
We know, it is a 5-day affair there is so much you can need and more than anything there is so much you want. But, it is never a good idea to be loaded with luggage when attending festivals like these. You surely don’t want to carry weight all around nor want to worry about it while grooving to the iconic musicians. Make a list of the essentials, identify the needs of things you would not want to miss during the festival and only pack what is on the list.
Also, the organisers are suggesting of extra security procedures with drills to search bags and cars which makes it even more important to just pack as little as you can to avoid any unnecessary attention.
Plan your journey ahead
Nobody likes to get to the gate of the festival and get stuck in traffic or parking. But, with the number of attendees for Glastonbury festival the scenario is most probably going to be it. Unless, you plan your journey ahead. The car parks will open at 9pm on Tuesday night (June 20th) before gates open. Festival gates will then open at 8am on Wednesday morning (June 21st). There will, however, be no entertainment or facilities (other than toilets) in the car parks and Festival goers will be expected to remain in their cars until the Festival gates open. With this hint you will be smart if you make a presence early.
Must-have’s for the Festival
Needless to say, you need a Festival ticket to be part of it. But, along with the ticket you must have your original I’D, a reusable water bottle, tent, sleeping bag, roll mat, some sturdy boots, toilet roll, a warm jumper, waterproof, toiletries, spare clothes if it gets wet, medication if required, torch, money card but of course. Most importantly mark valuables with house name and postcode so it can be posted back to you.
