What To Bring

When thinking about what to pack, please bear these things in mind.

However you arrive, you’ll inevitably have to carry your stuff from your car,The Gillow Team definitely encourage you to only bring things which you can take home – that includes everything, even your tent.

Please bring a sturdy tent (and take it back home with you). So please bring a sturdy tent that will last a lifetime of festival camping.

In a stand to make our world more sustainable, we ask you to avoid singe-use items and opt for reusables options where ever possible and help us look after the land on which the Festival stands.


Don't Bring

Persons using fireworks will be evicted from site and materials confiscated.

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


Our Gillow Bars sell booze and soft drinks You are allowed to bring in your own alcohol when you first enter the site, but don’t bring too much.
Just exactly the right amount. Too much and the powers that be will think you’re trying to sell it or get blind drunk or something. The maximum amount of alcohol per person (in non-glass containers) permitted upon first entry to the festival is:

5.5 litres (12 cans) of cider OR beer OR similar strength drink; OR 1.5 litres of wine.

No alcohol can be brought onto to the site upon re-entry to the festival.
