Today Sasquatch Music Festival posted an important safety notice indicating that all Live Nation events are on on mandatory elevated risk protocols.
It reads “Special Notice. Due to enhanced security procedures no bags or backpacks will be permitted into the venue except for small personal bags or purses (12”x12”x6” MAX) or clear 1 gallon bags. All bags are subject to search. We encourage you not to bring in any bag whatsoever and make use of the express “No Bag” lanes, Expect delays entering the venue due to heightened security procedures. CTTV In Use. Thank you for your cooperation and patience”
While it is unclear if this is a direct reaction to the recent tragedy that occurred in Manchester, it appears like this policy will be strictly enforces. Mixed reactions have been noted in the comments section The festival’s website does indicate that one 20-oz., factory sealed bottle of water and a 1 gallon bag is allowed in. So time to get creative festival goers! Break out the ribbon, duct tape, fabric, glue gun, glitter and make the best of the situation! Pinterest has some amazing ideas on water bottle holder that you can make so that you can stay hydrated and utilize the free water stations.
