What are the alcohol rules at 2000trees?

On its website, 2000trees says: “As you know, we are an independent, multi-award winning festival and we’re sure you want us to stay that way!?

“However, since we’re not owned by a large company, we rely heavily on people buying a few beers, a few burritos and some merch between the great bands we’ve booked. “So this year we are politely suggesting that only open containers of alcohol be brought into the arenas from the campsites. So yes you can bring what you drink from the campsites to the arenas, but maybe not a backpack full of alcohol???

“That said, we’re not the fun police, so we’re not really going to enforce that… More of a polite question than anything.”
