Finn Attreed of Barnet has been sentenced to three years and nine months in prison.
He pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply Schedule A drugs, including cocaine and the synthetic drug 2C-B, as well as possession with intent to supply Schedule B drugs, namely ketamine.
The event occurred in the early hours of Friday, August 5, 2022, when the festival’s security team received reports of a man going from tent to tent announcing the sale of drugs.
Attreed was then apprehended and found to be transporting a quantity of drugs.
Thames Valley Police officers were called to the scene and arrested Attreed, charging him the following day.
In addition to the drugs he was carrying, agents seized a burner phone containing messages related to drug deals, drug paraphernalia, and amounts of drugs.
At his sentencing hearing at Oxford Crown Court on Thursday April 6, Attreed received a total of three years and nine months in prison.

Detective Constable Daniel Smith, from the Witney Police Station-based Priority Crimes Team, said: “Finn Attreed attended the Wilderness Festival with the intention of making money from drug dealing.
“He traveled from London to try his luck in our area, however security were clever with their actions and detained him as he tried to sell his sales pitch to the campers.
“I hope he uses his jail time to reflect on his actions.
“Thames Valley Police will not tolerate drug trafficking within our communities. We will go after the traffickers and take them to court to decide their sentence.
“In addition, we will continue to work with our partners at Wilderness Festival and would like to thank them for their swift actions that led to this conviction.”
