Safeguarding and Security

Truck is an event for all people, regardless of race, gender, orientation or physical ability. If something or someone makes you feel uncomfortable – no matter how small it seems – you can report it to a member of festival staff and they will work with you to make sure it doesn’t have to spoil the festival for you.

Respect your fellow festival-goers and look out for each other. If you see someone behaving badly towards other people, please alert a member of festival staff.


We have on site 24hr security and stewards who are there watching over things so that everyone can enjoy the festival as much as possible. Friendly but firm if you need them. They are there to protect you but promise to always be approachable and fair.

Please look after all your valuables during your time at the festival. Remember, your possessions are your responsibility, so only bring what you need – the less stuff you need to keep an eye on, the better.

Bag searches will be conducted upon entry. Anyone found to be in possession of banned substances or items will be refused entry and the appropriate legal action will be taken. In this instance, no refunds will be issued.
