Reminder To Mind Your Belongings:

Unfortunately, many people have reported pickpockets, bag slashings, and theft of wallets, smartphones, purses and other valuables during this festival season. While this small number of bad apples in the bunch doesn’t define an entire crowd, there are opportunistic people who come to these events to take advantage of unsuspecting partygoers and it’s important to be mindful of your valuables while at Buku Music + Art Project

Bag Policy:

As an ongoing effort to improve patron health,  safety and security, as well as significantly expediting patron access into our festivals, all AEG Presents festivals will be implementing a uniform clear bag policy.
Beginning with the 2019 festival season, patrons will be able to carry the following style and size bags into the festival:

  • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12″
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar)
  • Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bag options.
  • CamelBak-style water bladder systems with one bladder pocket and one smaller pocket subject to specific conditions: CamelBak-style water bladder systems are allowed empty into the venue, however the water bladders themselves must be capable of being removed from the carrier and must be transparent enough to allow security to visually inspect the empty bladder.
  • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose.

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, cinch bags, seat cushions, luggage of any kind, computer bags, camera bags, or any bag larger than the permissible size.

Through this policy, AEG Presents will be able to deliver a higher quality and more efficient screening process at the gates while providing an even safer and more enjoyable festival moment.
