WHAT YOU CAN & CAN’T BRING
Camping ticket holders can bring a reasonable amount of food plus the following alcohol quantities for personal consumption into the campsite upon initial entry only:
1 x 70cl spirits (no greater than 40% ABV) and 12 x 440ml cans beer/cider or 12 x 250ml cans pre-mixed spirits
3 litres of wine and 12 x 440ml cans beer/cider or 12 x 250ml cans pre-mixed spirits
No food or drink can be taken into the main festival arena. However, we do allow sealed bottles of water up to 750ml, and empty unsealed bottles can be brought in to be refilled at the water points.
No glass is allowed anywhere on site, including in campervans or caravans. Please decant into plastic containers before you leave home.
The legal age to bring alcohol into the festival is 18+. There is an ID check on entry and any alcohol will be taken off you if you are found to be underage.
A list of all our food vendors can be found here, including information on dietary provision.
For customers with specific dietary requirements that we don’t cater for, we do allow a reasonable amount of food to be brought into the festival arena for personal consumption. This must be confirmed with us in advance of the festival by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fold up chairs and blankets are permitted, however, if you intend to bring them into the arena, we request that they are not used in areas that may cause congestion or in the area between the Main Stage and the mix tower.
Picnic bench seating can be found around bar and food outlets.
Please pack light. To maximise the safety of everyone attending The Long Road, all customers may be subject to a thorough security check when they arrive.
Please be patient if there are queues and familiarise yourself with the below prohibited items before you arrive to avoid unnecessary delays at the security checks.
We recommend you don’t bring any unnecessary valuables. Unfortunately, festival campsites can attract opportunistic thieves. Keep valuables safe and away from the door of your tent.
You are welcome to bring ‘Cracker Jack’ to enjoy The Long Road for the day (or weekend if staying in a caravan/campervan), but please read and acknowledge all information here.
There are certain items that are not permitted into the festival or specifically the festival arena or campsite. These items are not limited to the below list but please do not bring any of the following:
- Cameras, film or video equipment with a lens greater than 6inches
- Illegal substances or legal highs
- Paper lanterns
- Perfume in small glass bottles over 100ml
- Unrecognisable medication without a doctor’s note or prescription
We allow the following items to be taken into the campsites, but not the arena:
- Flags on flagpoles as there are overhead powerlines in the arena
- Cooking equipment – charcoal bbqs and small butane gas stoves (single burner with gas cylinder up to 5kg)
Umbrellas can be taken into the arena but for the comfort of others, we ask that you please do not use them in front of stages as you may restrict the view of others.
For the enjoyment and safety of others we also reserve the right to stop the following items from coming into the event:
- Any item which we reasonably deem may cause danger, offence or disruption to any other person (for example: large sound systems, fireworks)
- Any item which may be used as a weapon (for example: kitchen knives, corrosive substances)
