Pre-Order Your Festival Cold Cans

At Carlsberg we always strive for better, whether that's how we make our beer or how we serve it. The perfect pint is a thing of happiness and should be enjoyed cold, even if you're in the middle of a field at a festival campsite.

That's why we are bringing back our unique Cold Cans service to this year's Download, Reading and Leeds festivals. This means you can pre-order cold Carlsberg Pilsner, Carlsberg Expørt and Somersby Cider cans and collect them straight from the campsite at the festival. This is the perfect opportunity for you to try our new perfectly balanced Danish Pilsner, rebrewed from head to hop for a crisper, fuller flavour, while you're enjoying a great music line-up. We are also providing cans in our new Snap Pack - a sustainable packaging solution which glues our cans together to replace plastic wrapping.

All you need is a camping ticket and be aged 18 or above. Your age will be checked on collection, so please bring ID. Payment will be taken when you order and terms & conditions apply. You can only order a maximum of three cases per person and user. If you’d like to collect your cases separately, please make separate orders. Orders for Reading & Leeds Festivals will close on Monday, 19th August at 9am.
