A challenge 25 policy will be in operation at the event. You should expect to produce valid, in date photographic ID.

Only original IDs are accepted – no photos or photocopies.

Access to Bar queues is restricted to persons 18 and over.

Photographic ID must resemble you, and entry will be refused if there is no clear resemblance. It is a criminal offence to use false or borrowed ID to gain entry to a licensed event.

ID will be subject to further security checks and we reserve the right of refusal on the basis that you don’t resemble your ID or we can’t verify that your ID is valid.

If we cannot easily and quickly validate a facial match between you and your ID, you will be directed out of the customer queues into an alternative process which could cause you a delay.

We will be working with Police Scotland and other partners to ensure this process is as robust as possible and fake ID will be confiscated and passed to the authorities.

The following types of ID are accepted at the festival:

  • UK or International Full or Provisional Driving Licence
  • UK or International Passport
  • National Proof of Age Standards Scheme card with the PASS hologram (e.g. Young Scot, CitizenCard, My ID Card)
    • Must have a PASS hologram on it.
    • The PASS hologram must not be faded, damaged or tampered with.
    • If there is an issue with the PASS hologram on your ID, you should apply for a replacement card via the issuing authority as it will not be accepted.

If you are unfortunate enough to lose a personal item, please note that all property recovered by stewards is passed to Police Scotland and available to collect from the Monday after the festival. You can call them on 101 to check if you item has been found.
