A new "clear bag" security policy at Outside Lands will require attendees to bring their belongings in see-through plastic bags starting with this year.

Backpack-sized bags and tote purses will have to be clear plastic, clear vinyl, clear PVC or one-gallon clear zip-top bags.

Small clutch bags and fanny packs between 4 to 5 inches wide do not have to be made of clear plastic.

Non-plastic hydration packs with a capacity of 2.5 liters that have no more than two pockets will also be allowed.

"We are taking every step to ensure Outside Lands is a secure and positive experience for all festival patrons," Allen Scott, concert head for Another Planet Entertainment said in a statement.

Many festivals have adopted the clear bag policy because it reduces time for security checks and enhances safety, according to Scott.
