    She can risk it. It really depends on how old she looks.
    However theres no chance of her getting in the beer tents as they id everyone before they enter.

    Cant say she will or wont get id'd though. Its a risk she'll have to take. If she is id'd at the gates and found to be underaged she wont be allowed in.

    You can take sealed lids off bottles and out them on a different bottle which you have previously filled with alcohol, water bottle would work well for vodka...

    Yes but only a max of two litres per person.
    & no drinks are to be brought from the campsite to the arena.
    They check everyones bag etc and they do search you too.

    Just bought my tickets, hadn't even considered Global for a festival but after looking at the line up bough tickets straight away!

    Only just found out about the alcohol ban though so gutted I wont be able to bring a crate in. Anyone got any tips on smuggling in spirits or is it just a case of rolling a bottle up in your sleeping bag and hoping your the one that doesn't get searched?

    I know they allowed sealed soft drinks in so i now have an idea in my head involving cartons of orange juice with the foil lids, and a pritt stick....

    I thought you could decanter spirits into plastic bottles and take them in? Failing that, just stash it in your backpack at the bottom and hopefully they won't check...

    Hi,

    Bit of a silly question, i know you cant take alcohol in to the arena, but are you able to take it on to the campsite with you? or are you searched when you get your wrist band?

    They have security at the main gate before the campsite and also at the arena entrance and you can't take alcohol into either. And they will confiscate it, however not everyone gets a full search e.g. They can't take out everyone's tent bags and look inside because it would take forever.
    That's what I have heard from friends and Internet. So just try and take a bottle of spirit in and accept that you will have to buy more in there. You won't get thrown out if they find a bottle on you though! See you there!
