Byron Bay Bluesfest

Permitted & Prohibited Items

For the safety and comfort of all fans, we advise patrons to arrive early to ensure adequate time for bag checks.
 
Bluesfest strongly discourages the entry of large backpacks and bags, and advises that all carried items will be stringently checked upon arrival at Bluesfest. To avoid bag checks, simply leave all large items in your vehicle or tent and proceed straight through our 'non-bag check' lines. Your best option is to travel light and bring as little as possible.  
  
Campers should note that they won't be able to bring bags into the grounds via the North Gate.
Eskies and coolers of a reasonably small size will only be allowed in with people who have infants under 4 years old.
 
Prohibitted Items:
Alcohol – any alcohol brought onto the Festival site will be confiscated. The offending patron(s) will be ejected from the camp site for the remainder of the Festival.

Knives, weapons or explosives of any kind (including potential missiles).
