Excitement is building with Isle of Wight Festival 2024 now less than a week away.

Tens of thousands of revellers will descend on Newport's Seaclose Park between June 20 to 23.

Among the stellar line-up this year is the Pet Shop Boys, Green Day and Simple Minds, as well as a whole host of other acts.

With just days to go, we're sure attention has already turned to what to take with you.

Or, you'll want to know what you're allowed to take with you, especially if it's your first time.

Handily, festival organisers have put together a list of items which are banned from entering the site.

They are as follows:

  • Glass
  • Candles
  • Gas canisters larger than 300g
  • Smoke canisters
  • Knives
  • Illegal substances
  • Legal Highs
  • Nitrous Oxide
  • Laser pens
  • Megaphones
  • Fireworks
  • Flares
  • Poles, banners and flags
  • Animals (other than registered guide or hearing dogs)
  • Any items which may be used as a weapon

Beyond that, organisers say you can bring what you like. But remember, you'll have to carry it from your car or the bus station to the campsite.

Festival goers are also reminded to reduce plastic waste where possible. There will be plenty of water points around the site, so you're encouraged to take empty refillable drinks bottles.

Camping style chairs and inflatable seating are allowed on-site, but only in a designated point in the Main Arena.

For parents with a baby, you can bring formula milk powder to mix up or food in pouches, but no glass.
