Bag restrictions will be in place when entering the Arena

Please help us by bringing as little as possible and remember we do not allow bags larger than A4 into the Arena.

Bag Restrictions Reading Festival

Please be patient while we carry out our security checks and searches, which take place at the campsite gates, the Arena entrance and may also happen at any time at any location onsite.

Our security staff are there for your safety – please cooperate with them as they work to keep us all safe and sound. Some are covert, but most are obvious by their green or white tabard. Always go to them if you need help. The medical tent is fully staffed, open 24/7 and located on Baker Lane in the Yellow Campsite.

There are security measures you will see and of course ones that you can’t. The whole site is monitored throughout by staff on the ground along with an extensive CCTV system watched round the clock by a team of monitors in a fully staffed Event Control.
