Police in Warwickshire are preparing for the influx of about 40,000 people this weekend for Britain's biggest dance event.
This is the first time that Global Gathering, which takes place at Long Marston airfield on Friday 29 and Saturday 30, will be spread over two days.
The festival will incorporate added forms of entertainment alongside house music with attractions including a comedy tent and a fairground containing various rollercoasters and water rides and even a bunjee jump.
The site includes several self-sufficient villages, carnival festivities and performers extravagant enough to rival those at Glastonbury.
Warwickshire police are working closely with the festival organisers to ensure the safety and security of visitors and to minimise disruption to local people through road congestion.
Police have warned they will particularly vigilant over drug use and an amnesty bin will be at the entrance for anybody who wants to dispose of illegal drugs.
Once within the confines of the festival, officers will be operating a zero-tolerance policy if drugs are found and anyone carrying drugs will be refused entry or arrested.
Last year, two people were treated at Warwick hospital for suspected drug overdoses, while six people were arrested, mostly for supplying drugs, and 67 were cautioned for possession of drugs.
Police are expecting around 15,000 festival-goers on the Friday, and a further 25,000 on the Saturday to see a wide range of acts from Scottish sensation Mylo, to Mancunian legends Happy Mondays.
Such an influx of people will put pressure on the transport network of the area, with an expected 7,000 cars and 100 coaches heading to the event and police have come up with a traffic management plan, which has identified nine different routes to the site in a bid to keep congestion to a minimum.
Police have said that it is important that visitors to the festival remain patient and follow the route signs at all times.
