We want to get you into the Weekender as quickly as possible so to help us out, please take a moment to read through the terms and conditions that accompany your-eticket so you can be prepared.
On arrival please have your e-ticket and a valid photographic ID ready so it can inspected by one of our friendly security staff. ID is essential and entry will not be given without it.
Children 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or responsible guardian aged 18 or over and will require some form of photographic ID. Last entry is at 2100hrs each day
We reserve the right to turn away and to eject anyone we believe to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and those who are disorderly, or engage in inappropriate behaviour, vandalism or evade admission.
Re-entry will be given only under exceptional circumstances. To gain re-entry you must have your wristband and a pass out stamp. Attendees with damaged / ripped / faulty wristbands will be refused re-entry. No exceptions.
Once your Weekender ticket has been successfully scanned you will be given a secure wristband. Please make sure you wear your wristband throughout the festival as it's the only way you get in and out. Don’t tamper with your wristband and please don’t over-tighten as replacements won’t be available.
Anyone between the ages of 10 and 25 are required to have valid photographic ID. You will permitted entry without photographic ID by security staff if they feel you look over 25.
Permitted forms of ID are, valid Passport, Driver’s Licence and photographic ID with the PASS logo on. Photocopies of any forms of ID will not be accepted.
You ID is required to prove your age at the Bar and so we know you’ve bought the right ticket in your right age bracket.
You will need ID to prove you are 16yrs & above to enter the iPop Digital Stage.
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;
Umbrellas, selfie sticks, tents, chairs (all deemed an obstruction), bottles, cans, canisters, containers, food, laser pens, unauthorised professional film or video equipment, audio recorders, air horns, spray cans, fireworks, flares, animals (other than registered guide or hearing dogs) are not permitted nor any items that may be used as a weapon.
Any prohibited items will be confiscated upon entry and likely to be destroyed.
We operate a 100% NO Glass basis, this includes 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 bring GLASS.
- ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES
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 age verification booth where you will be given an 18+ age verification wristband once your photographic ID has been seen and approved. Once you have this you will be able to purchase alcolhol 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 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.
Children 15yrs & under are not permitted in the IPop Digital Dance Stage. Please be aware that amplified music could potentially cause damage to hearing. Children's Ear defenders are available to purchase at the Weekender T-Shirt tent.
- DISABLED ACCESS
The Weekender is open to and as such we allow for easy access to all areas. Disabled toilet facilities are located in front of the Showground main building. Guide dogs for the blind and deaf are also welcome.
There are a number of toilet points around the Weekender site which are sign posted, cleaned and emptied regularly.
We’re extremely fortunate to have access to the Trinity Showground site so we ask that you consciously make an effort help to keep it clean and tidy. This includes the surrounding areas too. We have an on-site recycling site and plenty of bins so there’s no excuse.
- LOST PROPERTY

The sun can be deceiving especially when it appears cloudy. Please make sure you take precautions and use sunscreen and stay hydrated at all times.

There are temporary road restrictions to and surrounding the Weekender site for the weekend. Ensure you enter and leave the site quietly at all times, so as to minimise any disruption to our neighbours, and we’ll be able to come back and do this all again in 2018.
