How to sneak alcohol into a festival without getting caught
Across the UK, there are an array of strange items banned from certain festivals including pineapples, stuffed animals and man-bags. But one thing that may seem obvious is alcohol.
This is mainly to make the festival money, which is understandable, but making a can of Red Stripe the price of four in Tesco's is extortionate and cruel to their main target audience—students.
We have compiled a few tips to help you get the most out of your time this summer:
1. Fake suncream bottles
You can purchase a fake bottle of sunscreen, along with other wacky items, such as a hairbrush and a fake can of Lynx, to smuggle alcohol into your festival of choice. The great part about this one is that these items are relatively cheap and cheerful: if you do get caught, it's not the biggest loss in the world.
2. Hide it in a loaf of bread
A good way to get away with this is to hollow out a loaf of bread and hide a bottle in there. The security won't be looking for a bottle of alcohol in a loaf of bread, especially if you conceal it in your suitcase.
3. If you're going for a more colourful drink, try putting it in a bottle of mouthwash
If you don't fancy drinking WKD at a festival for this, you could always try adding some food colouring or amping up the alcohol levels by making a colourful cocktail with the clear spirit of your choice; try mixing lemonade and blue food colouring, or just add vodka to your WKD.
4. Boobie bags

Going on a cruise? The average cruiser spends over $250 on alcohol during a five day cruise.

If you're not a girl, we're not sure how well this one will work out for you. You can fill these bags with alcohol and stuff them in your bra.
5. Mini bottles
If you sneak the tiny shot-sized bottles of Jaeger or vodka into your wellies, you'll be good to go. This one isn't as fool-proof, but if you're stuck, it's worth a shot. Also, you could buy travel-sized containers from any supermarket to either put in your wellies or just in your suitcase.
If you are going to be drinking during a festival, please make sure to look after yourself.
Do not forget to bring water with you: you will be feeling extremely sluggish and faint during your favourite performances otherwise. Also, bring a hat or umbrella as most festivals lack shade. An anorak is recommended if showers are forecast, and always make sure to keep an eye on all your drinks: never leave them unattended. As long as your friends and you are looking after yourself, you're sure to have a brilliant time.
