Fans attending multiple days across the festival weekend, will be required to take a second test 48 hours after the first one.

For example, if you take a test on Friday morning, you must take another one on Sunday morning in order to re-enter the festival.

Organisers are also asking attendees to order or collect their lateral flow tests, which are free of charge, as soon as possible.

Anyone who is unable to present proof of a negative result will be denied admittance.
