Staying Safe

If you feel that you require support for any reason during the event, please head to our LUSA marquee where our friendly volunteers will be able to connect you with a suitable support service. We have St John and Red Frogs on site to provide support, care and medical attention as required.

Look out for your mates and check in regularly to make sure everyone is okay. It’s a good idea to decide on a meeting point before you arrive in case anyone gets separated from the group. Make sure your phone is charged so that you’re able to contact friends or call a ride home if needed.

Use the below tips based on health advice from the NZ Drug Foundation to keep yourself safe while attending our festival:

  • Avoid mixing any drugs (including alcohol and medications) as this greatly increases your risk of negative effects or overdose.
  • Stick to your limits. Only have on you what you plan to use as it can be hard to stick to decisions you made once intoxicated.
  • Stay hydrated. If you are doing a lot of dancing or physical activities, aim to drink a glass of water per hour and take regular breaks.
  • If choosing to use drugs, plan for the high and the recovery. Research what to expect from the substance you are planning to use, decide how much you want to use while you’re still sober, and test your product using a drug checking service to check it is what you think it is.
  • Do not accept drinks or drugs from an unknown source or stranger.
  • Let your body recover. Have a safe and comfortable place to recover after using drugs, and avoid using other drugs when coming down as this can put more strain on your body and make the eventual comedown worse. Most drugs force the release of feel good chemicals and if you use frequently you can run down your reserves which means longer comedowns, milder highs and potential addiction.
  • Reflect. Check in with yourself that your use is not impacting upon other parts of your life. If it is, reach out for help to change your use.
  • For urgent help call 111 and ask for an Ambulance (the Police will not be informed of overdose / drug-related emergencies). For support and information contact
