Restrictions and Prohibited Items

For security reasons, all Bingley Music Live ticket holders will be subject to extra searches at this year’s Festival. This is likely to make entrance slower than in previous years. Please be patient if there are queues, and please cooperate with any security requests and all searches.

There will be separate search lanes for those with possessions and we anticipate that these lanes will be significantly slower. Our advice to ticket holders is:-

  • Pack light. The less you bring, the quicker you’ll get through the gates. It really will make things quicker for you and everyone else. There will be fast track lanes for people that don’t bring bags/possessions.
  • Label bags. Put your name and number on any bags and possessions you bring.
  • Observe the festival opening times and arrive as early as possible.

We have put in place all necessary measures to maximise public safety, working closely with the authorities. You can also play your part in keeping Bingley Music Live safe and secure by reading the following text on restrictions and prohibited items.
