so i bought my tickets, with early entry. but im only 15, and on their site i just noticed it said they would check id. can i get away without it? its a 16+ fest...
also, they will supposedly search for alcohol.they really gonna do this or they just trying to scare everyone?
#4
You might have some trouble there. Suppose you could try to find an adult to go in with at the enterance or something? Could still have a problem with the alcohol though
#5
Godspeed, sir. Godspeed.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.
#6
if you look sixteen or older you probably won't have a problem. But if you get busted trying to bring alcohol in when they specifically say they will be searching for it, you deserve to get ramrodded by the long, throbbing **** of the law.
#7
actually, finding an adult to go in with is a pretty good idea...
are they actually gonna search stuff though?wouldnt that take hours?
#8
Wear a fake moustache and speak in a ridiculously low voice. What could go wrong with a scheme like that?
#9
I've got into places where you have to be over 16 and 18

Did you not think to bring someone that is actually 16 or over?
They made me do push ups in drag

#10
im going with a group of people, most are over 16, though no-one is over 18, so they dont count as adults.
#11
I doubt your age will be a problem. I've not been to Sonisphere before but none of the others i've been to have spent any time searching through my bags.

Also, if it's just vodka put it in a water bottle, they're not gonna open everyone's drinks and sniff them.
#12
Most fests won't really give a crap about that sort of thing. If not just find someone who can act as a guardian so that you can get in. That's what I did for the gigs that I wasn't old enough to go to.

What are you, ****ing retarded?

Have you ever been to a concert? They pat you down, look in your bag and if you're clean they let you in. 20 seconds tops. Yes, they do it to everyone.

If you bring a massive camping bag they'll litterally just pat it down for a second and let you go. I've never even been touched at a gig to be honest. Maybe just because i'm young and they don't believe I can smuggle things.

I know a guy who smuggled shittons of vodka into a festival by using capri sun packs.

Don't wanna kill your buzz but a lot of places won't let you in with water bottles if the seal has been broken anymore. You're gonna have to be more creative.

I would say peel the label back, poke a hole, drain the water, fill it with alcohol, put some clear tape over the hole, replace label.

If the water bottle is unsealed they might not let it in.

You could take your own water bottle, but they might sniff it.

I'd suggest suit casing your vodka in condoms.

A lot of Australian festivals only allow you to bring in one. Don't know about the U.S or where ever you are though.

sonisphere is a UK festival...you can bring as much to drink as you please.
#26
So you are under 16 and want alcohol with you in an over 16 concert? -_-

this has happened to me numerous times, but soni is my first festival, so searching&id become a problem, as opposed to regular gigs where nobody gives a ****.

I went to Sonisphere last year with my Dad. If I remember correctly they'll take your tickets and give you your wristband, and probably give you a pat and a bit of a bag search. Then you can go back out of the site and get anything else you left in your car or with friend or whatever and get back in without being searched again. My Dad brought some lagers in a cooler and they weren't searched or confiscated or anything.

not been to Sonisphere, but at Download last year I got in no problem and they have the same restrictions (I was 15 then). They didn't do thorough searches either, there simply wasn't time to search through 80,000 people stuff in the space of 2 days. All they did was take a quick glance into every second or third bag. They were looking for glass bottles and gas canisters, so they didn't check smaller pockets. If you've got something to hide just don't put it at the top of your bag. You should be fine. Otherwise, I'm sure you can talk someone into pretending to be with you in the queue by offering them beer.

still put it into a plastic bottle, if the rules are the same as Download, they'll shaft you if they catch you with a glass bottle later on as well.

You'll be fine...they won't ID you, mainly cause they don't care. It's just there as a disclaimer so if you go there and get lashed, pass out and get beaten up they can just go....it's not our fault he wasn't supposed to be here.

As for the booze...I've been going to festivals since Reading Fest since I was 14. They all say they search fo alcohol but it is exceedingly unlikely they will...like someone above me said. They're searching for things like glass bottles cause they can actually be dangerous.

If you're worried, pour it into a 2 litre plastic bottle, put it in your sleeping bag and roll your sleeping bag up again. That way even if they search your bag they're not gonna unroll your sleeping bag and look in there.

Although having said all that....they WON'T let you bring it into the arena. The campsite will be fine, but they WILL search on the way into the arena.

Most big events they actually won't let you take ANY bottles in, water or no. They expect you to buy all drinks on the premises. Also, you're underage, trying to get into a place where they've explicitly stated that they are going to be checking ID and bags, and you want to sneak alcohol in. Good luck kid.
