Katie Hopkins

Due to her vile and horrendous opinions that Truck Festival wholeheartedly does not agree with.


Not technically prohibited. However, they don’t tend to fare well after 3 days in a field! Don’t bring anything that you can’t afford to lose!


As of Monday 3rd of April 2017, changes in legislation under the policing and crime act 2017 mean that anyone found guilty of possessing pyrotechnics (flares, fireworks, smoke bombs etc) at a music festival could face up to 3 months in prison. Please do not bring them to the festival under any circumstances.

Personal Safety

Event stewards are here to help you. Don’t be worried about asking for help in any situation, whether it’s asking for directions or to report something or someone you’re worried about. We have on site 24/7 security and stewards who are there for your protection. They’re there watching over things so that everyone can enjoy the festival as much as possible.


There are hundreds of security, stewards and staff on duty, all of which wear our event tabards. Locate a member of staff for any emergencies, who will be able to assist, or locate the correct assistance. If a serious or life-threatening crime is being committed, please contact a member of staff or police officer immediately. If in the unlikely event you can’t find someone, please call 999.
