Let’s Rock Liverpool Do’s & Don’ts

Here’s all the FAQ info you need to know about Let’s Rock Liverpool.

Do dress up in your best 80’s garb. Fancy dress, leg warmers the lot! Bring a picnic blanket, camping chairs and or a small tent (up to 1m in height) and grab a spec in front of the main stage nice and early. You can bring water or soft drinks, no bigger than 500ml size bottles, still sealed. Do bring a picnic full of classic 80’s party food – but no sharp cocktails sticks on your cheese and pineapple hedgehog!

Don’t bring alcohol, BBQ’s or dogs to the event. No glass of sharp objects will be permitted.

Let’s Rock Festival is a no re-entry event, with the sole exception of parents/guardians accompanied by children under the age of 16. Single use re-entry wristbands will be issued so that parents can take kids home and re-enter to enjoy the later entertainment themselves. More info on that here.
