ID & Age Restrictions

The safety of all Truckers is of highest priority to us, and this means we must have certain rules in place to protect the safety of our younger festival-goers. Please see our age restrictions and ID requirements below:

16 & Over

Anyone 16 or over is welcome to attend the festival on their own without an adult, however, you will be asked to show proof of age on entry to access the event.

We accept the following forms of ID:

  • Your current passport – photocopies are accepted to gain entry but NOT to purchase alcohol at the bars.
  • Your UK Driver’s Licence or Provisional Licence
  • Citizen Card


Please note we cannot accept other forms of ID.  Photocopies will only be accepted to gain entry but the real document will have to be shown to purchase alcohol.

Under 16

Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult (21+) at all times.

Challenge 25 Policy

A challenge 25 policy will be in place for all alcohol sales on site.

If you look under 25, you will need a valid photo ID to be served alcohol.

  • No Generators.
  • No Sky Lanterns or Kites, unauthorised Fireworks, or Wax Flares.
  • No Re-Entry with Alcohol
  • No Illegal Drugs including all Psychoactive Substances
  • No Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas). As a contraband good, under the Psychoactive Substances Act 2016 this substance is banned.

  • No unauthorised tape recorders, professional film or video equipment are allowed onsite. Cameras for personal use are welcome.
  • Flying or filming with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs, or so-called drones) is not allowed on site before, during or after the Festival – and is prohibited by law. We have a working site and the safety of our audience, crew and staff is paramount.
  • All persons under the age of 16 will not be allowed entry into the festival without a responsible adult (21+). Maximum 4 U16’s per responsible adult. 
  • We will be implementing Challenge 25 at the entry gates, so have your IDs ready (see below for accepted forms of ID).

Truck has a zero-tolerance drug policy. Any illegal drugs will be confiscated and the police may decide to prosecute. New psychoactive substances, Poppers, and Nitrous Oxide are also strictly prohibited and may result in ejection from the event. Searches are a condition of entry to the festival.
