Hi Blues-Festers :)

Just wondering if anyone else had any thoughts of a few different bevvies for our diabetic partners/friends/fam for 2018?

My partner is a diabetic; and we struggled to even find her a Coke Zero at the Fest 2017.

We paid for VIP tickets, but we couldn't even buy her a spirit mix re no sugar free mixers.

No pre-mixed sugar free booze either. :( Even a sugar free Bourbon with Coke Zero would cater to diabetics.

Even cans of coke zero for mixers is better than nought at the bars.

I'll be sending a copy of this to Bluesfest as well - I was just thinking/hoping the more support the better in case others are thinking or missing of the same :)

I just would have loved her to have a quiet drink enjoying a gig like we all did.


Cheers and Beers (not sugar free for me) Scoobs :)

Water is fine for Diabetics but why should we be forced into Hydration and not Recreation. Alcoholic drinks are mostly loaded with sugars due to the fermentation process but then load them up with standard soft drinks and they become a danger. Even the choice of spirit and soda would be good.

And so I return to this, HOPING there are some alternative mixers for the diabetics this year :) ESPECIALLY in the VIP tent..... Zero mixers for the zero sugar heads... Healthy bits and all that; and I'm sure mine isn't the only one with over a thousand views anyway ..... She doesn't intend to get wasted - I'd just LOVE to buy her a vodka or something with an option INSTEAD of just water for a gig :)

Hi guys,

Hoping a Bluesfest staff member will reply to me?

I'm a type 1 diabetic so I usually carry a bottle of lucozade with me in case I have a hypoglycaemic episode. Will I be able to take this into the festival with me? I am happy to carry a doctor's letter to let the staff at the gate know about my condition.

I'm also really keen to know if diet coke or coke zero is available on site.

I can also drink low carb beers and I REALLY hope something like pure blonde or hahn super dry are available...

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Erin
