THE BIG GIG - TOP TIPS Re-entry is not allowed except in genuine emergencies so make sure your backpack is stocked with all you need for a day-into-night rave. There’s a long list of what you can’t bring into the stadium, including umbrellas and selfie sticks. Read up on the rules as you may be body-searched at the gate. Bring a folding chair (one per person, tables not permitted) and/or a blanket if you’re not a VIP ticket holder, as seating is at a premium. A cashless wristband system is used for food and drink purchases, which can be topped up with credit. Refunds are available online. Ditch the killer heels, ladies. Even catwalk models can’t strut their stuff in skyscraper stilettos for nine hours solid.
