Sorry to post one of these threads, but my mates all want me to go to Westfest this year, of course I want to, but im 17 and look no where near 18 (more about 14)
Two of my mates have been going since they were 14 and swear I will get in.
So do the security really not care about age?

Couldnt think of anything more embarrassing than getting turned away at the door and walking all the way back

Also: what are your opinions on WestFest?

It is quite low risk but there is always the chance that you will get asked to show ID.
I went last year when I was 17 and I didn't asked to show ID but my mate who is 18 did get ID'd.

It all depends though aswell, how far do you have to travel and would you have somewhere to stay or at least sit untill its over if you didnt get in?

Everyones tellin you to do it but you say you look 14?....

I'm in two minds about this years westfest. I've gone to the last 3 years, and they were all good excuses to get proper fucked, dress up in rave gear and have a proper stop.

But, since last year, my dnb taste is much more diverse, and I don't know if I could take 11 hours of jump up and dubstep.

So yeah, really don't know about this year... I might prefer to spend the money on going up to London for a night at matter, it would be much cheaper, because westfest tickets aren't cheap.

i first went raving when i was 17 and was absolutly bricking it just before i went in, but because there is so many people and the bouncers are more interested in searching people and getting them in, they are practically shoving you in the door.

Well thats what it was like when i went, and im telling you westfest is an amazing rave to go to, you will not be dissapointed if you go...(unless you dont get in) lol

Got turned away at sanctuary 07 when I was 16 because they didn't believe my mates ID, so wouldn't let any of us in, even though I'd made a really eleborate uni student ID card

but they were doing full searches, so the embarassing walk back was made a lot better by picking up about 10 henrys that people had thrown away before gettin to the search
