Bag Search + Safety

Want to get into the fest as quick as possible? Leave your bag AND liquids at home.

If you DO NOT have a bag, please enter through the No Bag Express Lane. If you DO have a bag, please enter through the Bag Lane and expect delays as bags are open for inspection. Bags will be restricted to small purses, totes and drawstring bags only. Bag size may not exceed 14” x 11” x 5” (35cm x 28cm x 12cm), or 30 linear inches (75cm) in total, and must have no more than one singular pocket or opening. Backpacks and bags with multiple pockets are prohibited. Hydration packs are allowed but must be emptied of all liquid and have no more than two pockets in addition to the one holding the water reservoir. Please check the list of prohibited items in advance, listen for the audio announcements and dispose of any item that is not allowed inside the festival.

The entrance also has a dedicated Accessibility Lane. If you have questions about accessibility while on-site please visit the main Guest Services booth near the main entrance or email

Party Responsibly

Your safety is our top priority. Here are some helpful tips on how to prepare for the fest:

  • Have Emergency Contact info on your person and your phone lock screen in case emergency personnel need to know (PRO-TIP: Make sure to register your wristband where you will be asked to fill out an Emergency Contact).
  • Remember to stay hydrated (visit our Hydration Stations for free, filtered, cool water) and eat regularly at one of the Food Vendors on site.
  • Protect yourself from the sun – take breaks and find shade. Sunscreen lotion, hats, and sunglasses are key.
  • Keep yourself and your belongings safe – be aware of your surroundings and keep an eye on your personal items at all times. Lockers are available for rent near the main entrance. If you find something OR lose something, head to a Guest Services tent for our Lost & Found.
  • Bring a list of allergies and medications you take in case of medical emergency.
  • Dress for the weather – we’re constantly monitoring the weather. Keep an eye on the radar before heading to the park so you can dress accordingly (rain boots, ponchos, etc).
