As the clock counts down to this year's Glastonbury Festival, Avon and Somerset Police are offering festival-goers crime prevention and personal safety advice.

Glastonbury Festival, one of Europe's largest music and arts festivals, takes place between June 22 and June 26, 2011. With more than 175,000 people heading to Worthy Farm in rural Somerset, the policing operation to help people stay safe at the festival is the largest in Avon and Somerset Police's calendar.

Crime at the festival remains low and last year around 99.7% of people were not victims of crime. Police are reminding those people attending the festival about the things they can do to have a fun and crime-free festival.

Inspector Chris Morgan, who will be working at the festival, said: "Glastonbury is less than a month away now and I know the excitement is building for everyone lucky enough to get a ticket. People have paid a lot of money to come and we do not want anyone to have their experience ruined by becoming a victim of crime.

"There are some easy things people can do which will help them have a great festival. The safety tips are quick and inexpensive but can make a real difference. The key thing to remember is to bring with you only what you need and keep anything valuable in the free property lock-ups on the site."

Festival-goers are advised to:

- Plan your journey carefully. Check your vehicle is roadworthy, take plenty of food and water with you and be prepared for queues near the site.

- Bring only what you need. Anything you do need should be registered on for free on Immobilise (www.immobilise.com) before you set off and either kept with you or, even better, left in the free property lock-ups.

- If you need to bring a phone, find an old handset and bring that instead.

- Look out for your friends and ask them to look out for you. Try to travel around the site with your friends particularly at night when it is dark and often disorientating

Festival-goers can stay up to date with news, photos and crime prevention advice online, on social media and through text messages both before and during the festival:

- Follow us online at www.glastonburypolice.org

- Follow us on Twitter @PoliceatGlasto for regular tweets

- Sign up to receive text messages by texting Glasto to 81819

Sergeant Shirley Eden from the Operational Planning team will be taking part in a special webchat. People will be able to log on and ask about crime prevention and what it is like to plan for an enormous event such as the Glastonbury Festival. The webchat takes place between 6.30pm and 8pm on Wednesday June 8, 2011 at www.avonandsomerset.police.uk

Avon and Somerset Police works closely with Glastonbury Festivals Limited (GFL) to ensure the event remains a safe and crime-free event.

There will be a 24-hour police presence at the event with a dedicated police compound where officers and support staff are based. There will be dedicated patrols on foot, on bike and on horses by both uniformed and undercover officers.
