Don't forget to drink plenty of water. Long waking hours, dancing and summer sun can increase your need. Safe drinking water is available from the standpipes scattered around the site, and bottled water is available at many stalls. If you're using your hands to drink, wash them first. For information about the watersupply, see the Facilities area of the website.
If you're bringing your own alcohol to the Festival, remember that amounts considered beyond reasonable personal use will be confiscated at the gate. All glass bottles will also be confiscated - you must decant all contents into plastic bottles before you come to site. Beer tents on site are run by the Workers Beer Company and Avalon bars. The prices are equivalent to London pub prices.
Please take care: drugs/alcohol cocktails can be lethal. Know your limits, and those of your friends. Drunk people can be very irksome! You'll all have a much better Festival if you avoid over-doing it. If you are concerned that one of your friends requires assistance ask a steward or security personnel to point you towards The Medical Centre or Welfare Tent.
Don't drive under the influence of drink or drugs when leaving the Festival. For more information visit www.brake.org.uk.
