A Guide to Vaping at Festivals

  • 31 May 2019

You may not be able to judge the British weather in summer, but one thing is certain – it’s festival season. Come rain or shine, there are hundreds of thousands of people who are going to be travelling the length and breadth of the country in search of good music and fun.

Here’s a guide to vaping at festivals so that you can get the most out of the experience.

Follow the rules

Organisers are granted event licenses if they comply to strict safety regulations and laws. Over the years, festivals have increased the level of security to make sure that revellers play safe. This can mean that some festivals ban liquids and glass bottles from being taken on to the site. No ecig liquid means no vaping.

For day festivals, you are best to buy a pen style e cigarette. Although this vape pen has a smaller tank than you are probably used to, the 1.8ml capacity is enough to keep you going without the risk of having your best vape kit confiscated. If you are camping, you’ll need to transfer your supply of e cig juice into plastic bottles.

Always check the festival organiser’s website and social media for information about what items are prohibited and their vaping policy. Typically, the spaces that you can vape in are the same as the traditional cigarettes. Be mindful of the rules.


When you are at a festival, you don’t have the same comforts as home. You stay in a tent, don’t wash and the toilets that you have access to are best avoided. While your hygiene may be on the back burner, you need to keep your electronic cigarette clean to keep it working at its best.

Festivals can be dusty and dirty or muddy and dirty, and everything in between. If you don’t think that you will be able to keep your e cig clean, buy a second clearomizer tank to ensure that you have a clean tasty smoke at all times. Vape tank replacement parts should also be taken with you – you don’t want to be frustrated by your e cig letting you down mid-festival. 

Charged up and ready for action

The good news is that e cig USB chargers can be used at the many charging stations that festivals have for mobile phones. However, like everything else at a festival, you may have to queue to access it. It’s best to take a reserve of fully charged batteries with you but remember that you need to treat these batteries with care. Don’t be tempted to carry your spare e cig battery in your back pocket, you need to protect it.

With summer vibes and an eclectic mix of festivals to choose from you know that this summer is going to be one to remember. You’ve got your ticket, have an idea of what you are going to pack, and have sorted out a tent, you don’t need to worry about whether you can vape at festivals.

You just need to be organised. Plan what you need to take for the length of time that you are away. Take clean vape equipment, charged batteries and enough e cig juice to cover you.
