    Default Confusion with security in campgrounds

    So i understand that you cant bring outside food and beverage to the actual venue, but can you bring coolers with water and food into your tent? do you get searched going into the campgrounds? and do you get searched everytime you go from your tent to the actual venue?

    Yea, but you can always just eat/drink/smoke at your tent, then go back in the concert with nothing to worry about. I'm just using my car as a big locker for all the things I'm not allowed to bring in, and then I wont have to spend as much money on expensive food/booze.
    I just want something good to die for, to make it beautiful to live

    Bring outside food and beverage into the festival? No.

    Bring coolers with water and food into your tent? Yes.

    Do you get searched going into the campgrounds? At least once when you first arrive. Coming from the venue? Probably not.

    Do you get searched everytime you go from your tent to the venue? Yes.

    how thoroughly do they search you when you go into the venue?
    like to they pat you down and make you empty your pockets? i'm guessing bringing in a hip flask of liquor would be pretty tough?

    it totally depends on the guard. I've walked right in with a backpack that nobody even looked at, and then right next to me seen them completely patting down people, making them empy all their pockets, take off their shoes, hat, etc.

    There's no way to tell what you'll get until you're there

    last year i literally just skipped on through with my bag... and had to wait while the other guard stopped my boyfriend, checked inside his hat, made him take off his shoes... and then goes "hey bub, got any knives on ya?" haha.

    large-breasted companions are your friends.

    especially for this reason.
