Packing for Glastonbury: list of prohibited items includes perfumes and mirrors

If you’re one of the lucky few who managed to secure a ticket for this year’s Glastonbury Festival, it’s worth checking out the list of prohibited items so you don’t run into trouble on the day of the event. .

Since there are a limited number of festivals remaining on the Worthy Farm site and the organizers like to do a fallow year on occasion, they are keen to reduce the environmental impact of the festival. This led to the organizers banning a number of items that you might not have thought much of.

Given this information, here is a list of items that the Glastonbury Festival organizer has asked not to bring to the festival.

What shouldn’t you bring to Glastonbury Festival 2022?

The festival organizers have asked attendees not to bring the following items:

  • Belvederes. The organizers have requested that you not bring them, as they take up valuable tent space. Likewise, they asked customers not to put tape around their tent enclosures, as it makes it more difficult for others to access their own tents.

  • Excess packaging. If you’ve bought something new especially for the festival (i.e. that shiny new tent), Glastonbury asks that you dispose of the packaging before you arrive at the weekend, to reduce waste.

  • Glass of all kinds. Organizers have banned all glass items, including mirrors and perfumes, saying they will be confiscated if found.

  • Non-biodegradable body glitter. Again, for environmental reasons, biodegradable glitter will be available for purchase on site.

  • Disposable wet wipes should be avoided. Festival organizers are keen for people to look here for alternatives, like a regular washcloth, because even biodegradable, fiber-based wipes release greenhouse gases when they break down.

  • Illegal items. Searches will be in place upon your entry and any illegal or offensive material will be removed.
