The rest of the safety notices are the usual thing - don't buy or sell fake tickets, don't vandalise local homes, don't crush people in the queues, etc. By the sounds of things security will be quite strict, as glass, cans, alcohol, fireworks, laser pens or pointers, spikes, studs or anything dangerous, professional audio or visual recording equipment, poles, fold up or blow up chairs or garden furniture and even umbrellas will not be allowed in. You are, however, warned to bring your welly boots.
