#FEST ANNOUNCES UPDATED BYOB RULES AND REGULATIONS
April 8, 2015
#Fest has announced updated BYOB rules and regulations for #Fest: 13th Edition (AKA #13Fest) on April 18. These updates have been made due to increased safety measurements for the growing festival, as well as sanitation permits and compliance with State regulations. Our number one goal is to keep you safe while you’re having the time of your life at #13Fest.
Starting with #13Fest, anyone wishing to bring in their own alcohol is subject to a $10 BYOB fee. This fee can be paid at the door (CASH ONLY) or pre-purchased online (recommended to reduce wait time in line). All VIP tickets already include this BYOB fee; no additional fees need to be paid for BYOB if you have a VIP ticket. ATMs will be on-site to get cash, although we highly recommend bringing cash with you.
Additionally, all beverages brought into the festival must be factory sealed. In other words, no previously opened bottles or cans may be brought into #13Fest. Also prohibited from the festival are kegs and hard liquor.
Alcohol will be available at the four fully stocked bars on-site at #13Fest. All drinks are reasonably priced. Additionally, you can purchase whole cases of beer inside festival grounds.
If you will be bringing any prescription medication to #13Fest, please declare them upon search at the entrance of the festival. You may store then at the Medical Center if you would like.
Much like #12Fest with the Green Cup Campaign, all beverages must be poured into a plastic cup before drinking; no drinks are to be consumed from it’s original bottle or can. Plastic cups will be provided to you upon entrance for free. We also encourage you to bring your own plastic cups, whether disposable or a plastic cup from home.
Coolers you are bringing in ARE allowed to have wheels. The amount of alcohol that you’re allowed to bring in is limited to what you can carry in one load. You will NOT be allowed to take multiple loads up to the entrance and make multiple trips in and out of the venue to bring it all in. UPDATE 4/14/15: Empty trash cans are allowed to be brought in for you to throw away trash or fill with ice/drinks AFTER you enter. Trash cans and bins that are full of ice and drinks upon entry will not be allowed in.
Again, these regulations are in place to make sure you have a great time at #13Fest while staying SAFE. If you have any questions about these regulations, including what you can and cannot bring into #13Fest, tweet us – @thenumberfest
