Festival Safety Tips

Four Ways To Stay Safe This Summer

As the weather improves and the festival season is underway it’s important to remember to stay safe, protect your personal belongings and have fun. Below we take a look at some important tips to remember throughout the festival period.

Personal Safety

At a festival it is important to be familiar with your surroundings. You should learn the layout of the site and note the location of the entry and exit signs. Similarly, if you are with friends, you should agree on a meeting place in case one of you gets lost. What’s more, there is plenty of staff who are always available to assist you, so don’t be afraid to ask for their help.

Weather

It is important to remember that even though the weather may be sunny, there’s always a good chance of it dramatically changing. We recommend that you check the weather forecast before heading off and always prepare for rain. However, in the fortunate event of clear blue skies, it is important to remember to wear sun screen and regularly top it up.

Valuables

It is recommended that you leave any valuables at home, so you can enjoy your few days, without worrying if you lost them. However, if you decide to bring your valuables, be sure to make the most of the facilities at the festival. For example, invest in a locker for the weekend so you have the option to store anything you don’t want on your person.

Alcohol

As mentioned above, good weather isn’t always guaranteed at festivals, but if the sun is shining you may find yourself feeling dehydrated quite quickly. The weather may not be the only cause of your dehydration, alcohol is a major factor too. To help with this, we recommend that you take on lots of water throughout the day and limit your alcohol intake.
