6. What's the story with booze?
Everyone is allowed the following quantities of alcohol:
24 x 500 ml cans of beer, cider or ready mix drinks and one 750 ml bottle of wine (decanted into a plastic bottle)
1 x 750ml bottle of spirits and one 750 ml bottle of wine (decanted into a plastic bottle)
3 bottles of wine (decanted into a plastic bottle) / or 1 x 2 litre wine box
Sunday ticketholders are not allowed to enter with alcohol.
Body & Soul love their attendees so much that they operate a super sound 'free flow' system once you're inside the festival gates.
So there'll be no need to hide your drink as you go past security into the main arena - you and your alcohol are free to roam wherever you wish. Happy daaaays!
