Sure look, you're probably an old hat at it by this stage if you've been to any recent concerts during the summer, but security has been stepped up and a few new things are now banned from arenas.

Most importantly: Bags. Backpacks or larger handbags will not be allowed in, and there will be NO storage facilities on the site.

Organisers "recommend if you are bringing  personal bag, purses  or clutch bag, you should only bring those of smaller sizes i.e. those measuring 4.5in/11.4cm x 6.5in/16.51cm or smaller will be allowed."

They also suggest that you bring as little as possible with you to the event and minimise jackets and additional layers when possible to reduce delays when going through security search.

Here's the full list of what not to bring:

  • Aerosols / Air Horns
  • Animals (Other than registered guide or hearing dogs)
