    They're also introducing random bag checks so I imagine you'll be fucked if they unearth your monster stash of booze.

    if they get shitty with me bringing in booze, and ill visibly be carrying in lots in a coolbox, it will be a simple of case of walking away and trying another entrance, and if worse comes to worse, just pass it over the fence.

    im quite angry they are even suggesting that booze is strictly prohibited, do they actually want to scare people into paying £5.50 for a pint of meantime all day long? :rolleyes:

    I've just come back from the park and there's a long list of prohibited items on the main gate - alcohol isn't one of them. Talk about mixed messages!

    I might come down tomorrow - I want to check out a film photography co-op in Brixton so it would be silly not to go down to the park as well....

    If pre-show traffic to the Buzz website is anything to go by, this is going to the most popular/busiest Country Show ever.

    Absolute Bowie are on at 2pm on the main stage tomorrow. I normally hate tribute bands but this lot are supposed to be good.

    I think you'll find that's because the article about the non booze has gone viral on facebook and twitter and loads of people are now boycotting it.

    I think you'll find that that's not the only post about the Country Show that has proved popular. I haven't seen any evidence of a mass boycott. Perhaps you could provide it now?

    Anyone saying they are boycotting it probably were not going to start with. boycott wankers.

    ....and they have no rebel spirit, so poo on them from above....

    It's always said no booze on the website. I doubt they will enforce it aggressively. Can understand no glass rule tho as it is a busy park that needs to be usable after the party ends like.

    Decidedly overcast but good festival weather! Hopefully people will think it'll rain so stay away! Selfish me...I need space to dance.

    shakespearegirl just worked out taglines

    It's confusing. Alcohol isn't listed on the prohibited items page, although glass bottles are. Bringing in Alcohol is only mentioned on the food and drink page.

    Went to the lido this morning and there is loads more security than previous years and entrance is restricted to main gates. Security guards were in place at 9.15 when I arrived but they weren't searching people.

    Bits of fencing had already been pushed back though and people were sneaking through

    I guess the searches are, sadly, not just about booze.....
    Better to be safe though

    Bag checks in operation alright. I had a couple of plastic home brew beers with me and they let me through. However as the bottles did not have labels and didn't look like beer, perhaps that's why I was allowed in.

    Be good if people could report back on the bag check situation through the day. I'm going up in an hour.

    I'm seeing prices of £5 for a can of beer, so be inventive in your smuggling efforts or take extra cash out!
