Yikes I was not expecting it to be that strict. Same goes for spirits ect? Usually at a festival I'd decant rum/vodka into an old plastic bottle as you can't take glass in, you think they'd check/take those away too? How much luck has anyone had taking drink into the arena, I only recently tried the old 'sealed' water bottle trick and it worked a charm, think I'd get away with it at truck?

Basically yes, and technically they may count 1 bottle of vodka in plastic, for example as enough for 1 person, so hide hide hide.

Truck newbie here.  Are sack trucks allowed?  Noted the 1 crate / personal use only for alcohol discussion, but will be neat to get tent, chairs, two crates on a trolley still.  Maybe the car park is 2 min walk from camp and it's not necessary...

Yeah, saw that but not sure what to make of it, as it was prompted by someone else. 

the nearest they’ve come to a secret set in the 7yrs I’ve been going was when Spector were on the bill as ‘Ian’ until about a week before the festival a couple of years ago...

Hi everyone, first visit to truck fest this year and we are staying in the campervan section. Truck website states that we can have one tent beside us in our allocated campervan space. Anyone know how this works if the people staying in the tent are arriving separately to us and driving to the car park. How do they get access to the campervan section? 
Also are they strict on the amount of  booze you can take in the campervan?

Does anyone know / remember how extensive the security checks are when coming into the festival? How easy would it be to bring stuff in?

that would depend on what you’re bringing in!  they have some dogs on the entrance, but it’s fairly relaxed all in all. 

Take your alcohol in when you first get your wristband and be cool and you won’t have any problems

The final vacant slot on the This Feeling Stage in Friday has been filled,  so that’s it I think now

Clashfinder is complete but I’d recommend printing as late as possible as I’ll check for any changes up until Thursday morning next week 👌🏼

Extensive enough that if you have something you shouldn't when you enter you are 70% likely to get pulled by a sniffer dog. If you fall into the 30% that didn't get pulled over, don't be like the boys I saw last year, at 3:30, half an hour or so after getting in, one tent up, 3 chairs spread out, they decided to smoke a rather flavoursome cigarette. 

It's a small festival and there were no other tents covering the surroundings yet, so I watched security follow the very clear smoke/scent and kick them out of the whole festival removing their wristbands!  However later that evening that scent was all I could smell in the campsite and there were no kickoffs/outs. 

So common sense and as Tony said - be cool. 

🤘🤘🤘

How many crates would I get away with before they stopped me from taking it in? I'm aware of the rule of what they deem sufficient for one person, but one crate isn't gonna be enough for four days!

1 crate per person.

Now, if you strap in several to a sack truck, and have the required amount of people all next to said sack truck, in the exact same queue/ offshoot into security - then yeah you may get away with 1 extra crate. Say there is 4 of you, and there are 5 crates cling filmed v tightly in place they may not be dicks about that. But if you all manager to queue in the heat with two piled high each in your arms, you'll be putting some back in the car I'm afraid.

And you can't take visible liquid back in. I went back in with a normal bottle of fanta fruit twist which was to be mixer, placed in a sainos bag with other food on the Thursday eve and wasn't allowed it, even though it was soft drink and I made him smell it. However depends on the security because I got it in the Friday afternoon.  🤷‍♂️

Going with my girlfriend who drinks gin, so don't have a big group, but in theory I could get away with 2 crates and hiding the gin in a plastic bottle at the bottom of a bag. Are the security super strict?

Hi all, looking forward to my first truck. 

 

1) how long is the walk from car park to camp?

2) best way to get booze in? Planning on bringing 3 crates and a bottle of Rum.

 

cheers!

Depends where you park (zodiac or general parking), how much stuff you have and how long the queues are (if any) at the time you arrive but on a good run no more than 15/20mins.

Firstly make sure your rum is in a plastic bottle and then stash it in with your clothes etc. should be fine. Crates are anyones guess because security are pretty strict.
