The Weekender site operates under a 7th Category license (Licensing (Jersey) Law 1974), with bars serving alcoholic & non-alcoholic drinks. Alcoholic, non-alcoholic drinks & water are prohibited at all gate entry points.
To keep you guys safe and to make sure no one ruins the fun please also refrain from bringing in the following;

Please do not bring GLASS. We operate a 100% NO Glass Policy, this includes items such as perfumes and make up mirrors. This is to ensure your safety. Any glass items bought to the site will be confiscated upon entry.

Please do not attempt to bring in any illegal substances to the site. You will be searched upon arrival so the chances of being caught and subsequently arrested are likely.
The Weekender is about bringing together great artists and great people, that’s you. We want you to have the best time so please stay sociable and respect each other, our security staff, the Weekender staff and the amazing acts who will be gracing the stages. It takes huge amounts of effort to organise these kinds of events and we want to be able to continue to do so. This is only possible with your help. We operate a zero tolerance basis when it comes to antisocial behaviour so make sure you’re on your best.
- CHALLENGE 25 / ALCOHOL
In Jersey the legal age to purchase alcohol is 18. The Challenge 25 Policy operates at all the bars at the Weekender. This means that if our staff are unsure how old you look, you will have to visit the Yoti Digital ID (http://bit.ly/2JYSqot) verification booth where you will be given an 18+ ID verification wristband once your photographic / Digital ID has been checked and approved. Once you have this you will be able to purchase alcohol from the bars. This does not mean you can buy it for people who are under 18 either, this is also an offence and if caught you will be asked to leave the site immediately. And if you’re under 18 and without a wristband it is illegal for you to attempt to buy alcohol on the premises so please don’t try.
Remember to drink sensibly particularly if the weather is warm. Stay hydrated with water. Any persons deemed to be overly intoxicated will not be served alcohol and will be asked to leave the site.
We strongly recommend that people travelling to and from the Weekender use the shuttle coach service as advertised, public transport, taxis or designate a non-alcohol-drinking driver to be responsible for your car journeys. And don’t drink and drive – it’s dangerous, irresponsible and puts the lives of yourself and others at risk. Not to mention the fact that it’s highly illegal and you risk losing your license. If you’d like to know more about responsible drinking pay a visit to www.drinkaware.co.uk.
We have numerous amounts of food stalls within the site (check out Feastiville to find out more). Therefore, we don’t allow any food to be bought into the site, this also includes baby food. Baby milk must be bought in sealed cartons only. We aim to cater for all dietary requirements and all are caterers are fully insured and registered with the States of Jersey Public Health Service.
In the event you are separated from your child/children on the site please note that the lost child/persons point is located at the Jersey Youth Service welfare tent adjacent to the main gate entry point.
