Safety

Alcohol

Upon arrival, you are permitted to bring alcohol into the campsite but only enough for personal consumption within reason. Glass bottles will not be permitted and will be confiscated upon entry.
RE-ENTRY to the festival site with any alcohol will be prohibited. You will be able to bring alcohol into the event but once you have been given your wristbands you will not be permitted to bring additional alcohol into the festival.

Please Note that taking alcohol from the campsites into the arena is NOT permitted at Truck Festival. This is a condition of the event having its current license and without this term, the festival would simply not be able to take place.

We also operate an extremely strict RU25 policy at all onsite festival bars, so please remember your ID if you are lucky enough to look under 25 and would like to receive an adult wristband to allow you to purchase alcohol at the festival.  Please note, we reserve the right to deny access to anyone who cannot produce a valid form of ID.

Passports, Provisional or Full Driver’s Licence, Citizen Card and ValidateUK cards are all accepted to prove 18+.

We will accept photocopies of Passports, Provisiona or Full Driver’s Licence, Citizen Card and ValidateUK cards to prove 16+

Security

We always make sure we have the best security at Truck Festival. Friendly but firm if you need them. They are there to protect you but promise to always be approachable and fair. If you have any problems at the festival and need help from the security, just ask.

Personal Welfare

Admission to the event is at Ticket Holder’s risk. Truck Festival Ltd and the Premises Licence Holder will not be held liable for any loss, injuries or damages sustained at the event including damage, theft or losses to property and motor vehicles if the cause is due to the negligence of the ticket holder or the actions of other patrons or thirds parties or force majeure.

Crime Prevention

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

Drugs

Any illegal drugs or psychoactive substances will be confiscated and the police may decide to prosecute. Searches are a condition of entry to the festival.

Smoking

Smoking is not allowed in the marquees but is everywhere else on the site. Please try to throw your stubs in the bins though – we’ve yet to find someone who enjoys picking them up!

First Aid

We have a dedicated highly trained first aid team on site 24 hours a day. If you’ve got any injuries or concerns about your welfare they are more than willing to help.

Fencing

The site fencing is in place to protect everyone at the event. Tampering with it is forbidden and may result in ejection from the event.

Fire Information

Personal camp fires are prohibited in the campsite and will be extinguished to protect the safety of everyone at the festival.

Barbeques

For the safety of everyone at the festival, no disposable barbeques are allowed onsite.  Purpose built units that are raised off the ground are permitted, although please take caution when cooking around flammable tents.

Gas Canisters

*UPDATE 25/07 Due to the intense heat this afternoon, we’ve taken the decision to ban aerosol-style gas canisters for BBQ’s, as they are prone to malfunction in high temperatures. Safety is always our number one concern. We’re sorry we didn’t communicate this sooner.*

Gas canisters are not allowed on site

Aerosols

Aerosols are allowed on site but please be sensible and respect to your fellow festival goers. Misuse can result in ejection from the festival.

Adverse Weather

Truck Festival is situated on Greenfield land, as such, conditions during adverse weather may become hazardous. Please ensure you bring appropriate footwear and clothing to cater for the possibility of wet, muddy and slippy conditions.

During an electrical storm:

Stay away from electrical equipment

Take shelter until the storm has passed

Avoid contact with any metal support of a structure

If you cannot get to shelter or are in your tent then you should crouch with your shoes on and your hands resting on your knees or covering your ears

Do not let your hands or knees touch the ground and do not lie flat on the ground

If strong winds occur as well as electrical storm then marquees will be closed and people will be advised to seek shelter in their vehicles

Animals

In the interests of health and safety only registered assistance dogs are allowed on site.
