LOOK AFTER YOURSELF & EACH OTHER
· If you plan to drink alcohol – know your limits.
· Keep hydrated, well fed, and don’t leave your drink unattended. There are water points around the festival site and bottled
water is available at bars. Drink between half a pint to a pint of water an hour.
· Check the weather ahead of time and be prepared. Wear appropriate clothing (rain jacket, hat, sunglasses etc) and apply
sun-screen if necessary.
· If you need help with anything, please go to the Help Points. Stewards and welfare staff are there to help keep you safe. If
you or your friends need assistance at any time, don’t hesitate to ask.
· Consider arranging a meeting point with friends within the festival site in case you get separated. For example, Nelson’s
Monument in the middle of the festival site.
· Look after your hearing. Take regular breaks from loud music, and don’t stand too close to the speakers. Disposable
earplugs will be available from the welfare tent.
SECURITY & DELAYS
· We urge all those attending TRNSMT to be patient, and to expect delays and searches upon entry. Please consider this in
your planning and ensure you arrive at the festival early.
· Report anyone acting suspiciously to the nearest police officer, steward, or member of staff.
· There will be a significant security and police presence at TRNSMT. It’s possible that you will see some armed police, as in
other locations around the city.
· These measures are in place to protect all those attending TRNSMT. Your wellbeing and enjoyment is our utmost concern
and we thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation.
· There are two entrances to the festival, an EAST and WEST entrance. We expect the WEST entrance to be very busy so
consider reducing your queuing time by using the EAST entrance if you can.
· Our stewards are there to help you. If you have a particularly good experience with one of our stewards, note their ID
CHECKED THE BANNED ITEMS LIST
· Don’t bring any banned items to the festival – glass, flag poles, selfie sticks, nitrous oxide aka ‘laughing gas’, laser pens,
air horns, multi-tools or flares.. These items put others at risk and are best kept at home. You also won’t need illegal
drugs to have a great time this weekend, so don’t bring any with you. Even “legal highs” are now against the law – it’s just
not worth the risk.
· Also, please don’t bring a bag unless it is absolutely essential. Bags larger than 30cm x 42cm (the size of a sheet of A3
paper) will NOT be permitted at TRNSMT. Those who need to bring bags will be separated into bag search lanes, and may
be delayed as a result of longer searches.
· Remember to pack any medication you need over the weekend, including prescriptions, inhalers and diabetic medicines.
KEEP YOUR BELONGINGS SAFE
· You’ll need your ticket and wristband all weekend, so keep them safe and dry.
Only carry the amount of cash you need, this year the bars and merchandise stalls will accept chip and pin, contactless
and Apple Pay, plus there are ATMs on site. Also, the best way to ensure you don’t lose something valuable to you is not
to bring it in the first place.
RESPECT OUR NEIGHBOURS
· Remember that Glasgow Green is surrounded by residential areas, and TRNSMT greatly appreciates the support of the
local people. Avoid behaving in an anti-social manner. Please respect the neighbours by keeping noise to a minimum,
both on your way to the festival and when you leave. Please only use public toilets on your way to the event.
