10 Proven Ways to Sneak Booze into a Festival

Tons of music festivals are  coming up over the next couple of months, which means now is the time to  brush up on some genuinely useful ways to sneak a little booze past  security. So if you’re looking to be a little bit of a renegade — and  avoid super-high alcohol prices inside the venue — check out the 10  items and methods you can use to bring your own liquor into your venue  of choice below. 

First  up, let’s talk real quick about how to deal with security. It seems  like the general consensus among festival-goers in terms of getting  through security unscathed is to, firstly, pick the right line — try to  scope out security personnel who don’t seem to be trying out for  America’s Next Top Secret Agent. Two: Have all of your things ready to  go — open your purse, take off your hat, have your phone/wallet/keys in  your hands, etc. etc. Three: BE KIND AND RESPECTFUL to the security  people — the kinder you are, the more likely you are to receive kindness  in return. And finally, if security does find booze on you, don’t put  up a fight; it will only make things worse. 

Also, let’s say you’re going to… Coachella 2018 maybe? Here’s a list of things you can and can’t bring into the festival, which may be of general use. 

Now onto the list! 

1. Sunscreen Hidden Flask ($12) 

It’s  OK to bring sunscreen into just about any festival, so you won’t have  this sunscreen flask pulled based on what it looks like alone. Plus it’s  not a transparent bottle, and it’s also probably difficult to feel out  the weight difference between booze and lotion. 

2. Sandal Flasks ($45) 

Sandal  flasks are a pretty unsuspecting way to sneak liquor into a festival.  Sandals as flasks is such a ridiculous idea, it’s probably not on the  radar of any security personnel. (Unfortunately you only get a shot’s  worth of booze in each sandal.) 

3. Use a Bottle Safe ($13) 

Although  the bottle safe is usually used for hiding valuable items, it can also  be used for hiding booze. Keep in mind that many festivals will only  allow you to have empty water bottles however, and if your “empty”  bottle is filled with booze, it won’t feel that way. So don’t fill up  the top part, and try not to let security actually hold the bottle. 

4. Booze-Filled Bra ($30)  

There  are a few “bras” on the market that can be filled with booze, like the  WineRack below. Perfect for ladies (duh), as it’s extremely unlikely  that security will be able to detect this kind of item in such a  sensitive area. 

5. Comb Flask ($19) 

The comb flask is great because it can hide your booze, and also help you to keep your hair stylish. 

6. Booze-Soaked Gummy Bears 

While  most venues won’t let you bring in outside food, vodka-soaked Gummy  Bears are probably your best option in this area because they can be  tucked away, and even if they’re found, they’ll just be confiscated as  outside food. 


See recipe. 

7. Crotch a Disposable Flask (3 for $13) 

Dudes,  take one for the team and crotch a disposable flask. We’d put together a  diagram of where exactly you should put it, but we think you can figure  it out. 

8. Camelbak ($50) 

Camelbaks  are allowed into most festivals and can be filled with booze rather  than water. Try not to fill it up too much before passing through  security however so it seems like it’s actually empty. 

9. Camera Flask ($16) 

Cameras  without detachable lenses are allowed into most festivals, so this  old-school digital camera flask is perfect if you don’t want to try any  of the other flasks that are bulkier or worn directly on the body. 

10. Binoculars Flask ($17) 

The  same principles of the sunscreen hidden flask and comb flask apply to  the binoculars flask. Binoculars are allowed into most festivals, and  they’re not transparent.
