11 Things You 100% Need To Know If You're Going To Watch Coldplay In Mumbai

Bags, handbags and backpacks aren't allowed. Also you shouldn't carry cash 'cause you have to use a card provided by them.

1. The doors officially open at 10 A.M. and the performances start at 1:30 P.M.


BUT since this is Mumbai, and literally half the population is going to be there, you should have already left your house and camped outside the venue.

2. The fest suggests you use public transport instead of driving because the parking sitch might be kind of a bitch.

3. You won't be allowed to move from one zone to another, 'cause they basically want you to be pals with everyone in your zone.

Sony Pictures

Which is fair, it's approx an eight-hour concert, you're going to make lifelong friendships.

4. Once you're in, you can't leave your zone. So make sure you get there early and grab a good spot.


5. No cigarettes, alcohol, recording equipment, or eatables will be allowed inside.

Super fair, tbh.

6. Also, you can't carry any weapons or ammunition.


Which again, is fair, I guess?

7. Other things you can't carry are a bag, a backpack, or a handbag.

OK, this is getting ridiculous now.

Here are the items that are allowed:

- Cellphones

- Ear plugs

- Fanny packs

- Hats

- Small beach towels

- Sunblock

- Sunglasses

8. In case the heat and the hours of standing get to you (and it will), there will be multiple first-aid booths present at every zone.


9. Cash money is practically useless. You're going to have to purchase a card (which you can do with cash/card), fill it, and use it at the refreshment stalls there.


10. Furthermore, you can recharge the card, but if there's anything left, you don't get it back. It all goes to charity.

Which is cool and all, but I am poor AF. Especially after spending money on these tickets.

11. And finally, don't forget to carry a valid photo ID, and (obviously) your ticket.

You don't want to get all the way there and realise that you can't get in.
