The Glastonbury Festival in the past has had a reputation for peace, free love and tolerance to drug-taking. But if you are planning to bring and use drugs at this year’s festival, THINK AGAIN.

No matter what you may have heard, we have a zero tolerance policy to illegal substances.

Security checks on your way into the site are stringent and the festival’s security staff are well practised in finding any place you might decide to hide your stash.

Personal Safety 4

We are informed of any drug finds and offenders will be arrested and taken into custody. You then face a potential court case and prison for drugs offences.

If you think Glastonbury is a good opportunity to experiment with drugs; police, the organisers and medical staff would strongly advise against it. The site is huge and it is very easy to get lost and disorientated at the best of times. First offence or not, you could be ejected from the site and miss the festival entirely for the sake of one moment.

The impact that could have on your general life, travel plans, reputation and employment prospects for years to come is considerable. Think about your actions, come and enjoy the festival, but stay on the right side of the law.
