How Much Alcohol Can You Take Into Creamfields And Reading & Leeds Festivals?
If you're looking forward to watching Post Malone, The 1975, Foo Fighters, and Twenty One Pilots at Reading and Leeds Festival 2019, or Swedish House Mafia at Creamfields 2019, then you'll need to make sure you adhere to the alcohol limit.
We're not trying to be party poopers; we just don't want you getting turned away for smuggling too much cider into the campsites, or even worse, having to pour your golden nectar down the drain.
With temperatures set to reach 28 degrees in Leeds, 29 degrees in Reading and 27 degrees at Creamfields this weekend, it looks like it's going to be perfect drinking weather. Here's how much you're allowed to take into each festival without getting into trouble.
Alcohol may only be brought into the music festival if you are camping. There is a limit of 24 cans and a 1 litre plastic bottle of spirit or wine per person. Any alcohol in glass bottles must be decanted into plastic bottles. Cans can be mixed (e.g. 12 cider and 12 lager) and they may be loose (not in a crate) but must not exceed 24. Also, kegs are a strict no no.
Unfortunately, you can't take your favourite bevvies into the arena, as you're expected to empty your overdraft on warm, flat beers from the stalls provided.
Reading and Leeds Festival
There isn't a strict alcohol limit at Reading & Leeds festivals so fill your boots, you can even take glasses in. However, you're only allowed to drink your alcohol in the campsite.
Hilariously, when Reading and Leeds festivals were originally announced, The Mirror accidentally accompanied their article with a picture of Rita Ora instead of Post Malone. Admittedly, Rita was dressed up as the singer for a Halloween party, but it's still hilarious. Their gaffe was picked up on by journalist Roisin O'Connor who tweeted a screenshot of the offending image with the caption: "This morning I am very amused at The Mirror accidentally using a pic of Rita Ora dressed as Post Malone for Halloween in their story on Reading and Leeds headliners"
