Obviously there will be concerns from drivers about being kicked off the site before they are ready to drive. But the festival is a camping festival, so there is no excuse in this case and ever to drink and drive. So if you wanted to spend loads of money on booze, you should have picked up a camping pass. Rest if need be and know that the repercussion of having those few extra drinks will stay with you for life.
