Understanding Glastonbury's Alcohol Policy

Glastonbury's alcohol policy, while somewhat flexible, centers around "reasonable personal use," a concept that provides attendees with the freedom to bring a variety of alcoholic beverages, albeit within certain general guidelines. These guidelines are designed to ensure everyone's safety and enjoyment at the festival. Here's a look at the general guidelines for alcohol you can bring into Glastonbury:

General Guidelines:

  • Beer and Cider: A maximum of 16 cans of beer or cider.
  • Premixed Spirit Drinks: Up to 18 cans of premixed spirit drinks (e.g., gin and tonic, rum and cola), with a limit of 500ml per can.
  • Wine: Up to 3 litres of wine, provided it's in a non-glass container.
  • Spirits: One 70cl bottle of spirits.

The policy allows for flexibility, meaning you can mix and match within these guidelines according to your personal preferences. Here are some examples of how you could tailor your alcohol selection for the festival:


Mix and Match Examples:

  • 16 cans of your favourite beer or cider - perfect for those who prefer sticking to one type of drink throughout the festival.
  • 8 cans of beer + 9 cans of premixed spirit drinks - a balanced selection for those who enjoy a bit of everything.
  • 3 litres of wine - ideal for wine enthusiasts 
  • 1.5 litres of wine + 30cl of spirits - ideal for wine enthusiasts who also appreciate a stronger spirit option.
  • 8 cans of beer + 30cl of spirits - for beer drinkers who also appreciate a stronger spirit option.

These examples illustrate how you can leverage the flexibility of Glastonbury's alcohol policy to bring a combination that suits your taste, ensuring you adhere to the festival's guidelines while enjoying a personalized selection of beverages.

Cost of Drinks within Glastonbury

Once inside the festival, purchasing drinks can quickly add up and put a dent in your budget. Glastonbury offers a wide range of alcoholic beverages, including beer, cider, spirits, and wine, at various bars and stalls spread throughout the festival grounds. However, prices can be higher than what you'd typically pay outside of the event. On average: 

  • A pint of beer or cider can cost between £6 and £7
  • mixed drinks and cocktails ranging from £7 to £12 

These prices can vary slightly depending on the bar and location within the festival.
