You are not permitted to take any alcohol into the arena, but each camper who is over the age of 18 can take a reasonable amount of alcohol into the campsite. By a reasonable amount we mean one case of beer or cider and / or one litre bottle of spirits per person. We don’t allow any glass in the campsite so any alcohol brought on site must be in cans or plastic containers.

Wakestock employs one of the most respected security and stewarding companies in the business who are on site 24 hours a day throughout the festival and the police are also present on site. Unfortunately there are always some people who target festivals and thefts do occur on site every year particularly from tents. We recommend that you don’t leave any items on value in your tent – try not to bring anything of value to the festival, but if you have to we recommend you book secure storage through the Wakestock secure storage facility to keep your possessions safe. Please also keep anything of value out of sight in your vehicle if it is parked on site. If you see anyone acting suspiciously on site please report this to the nearest steward.
