What is Festival Safe?

Whether you’re a first-timer or a hardened veteran, there is something on Festival Safe for everyone.

  • Confused about what tent to buy?
  • Wondering how you’re going to cope with the toilets?
  • Looking for information on alcohol & other drugs?

You’ll find lots of useful information to make yours a festival to remember - for all the right reasons!

Questions?

All festivals have slightly different rules. If you have any questions you should contact the organisers of the event that you are going to. Visit the event website for details of how to get in touch.

Festival Safe is aimed at people heading to UK festivals. Much of the information you'll find here will be useful wherever your event is being held, but if you are heading to an overseas event remember that rules, and in particular the law, can be different in other countries.

If you’re partying at a #festival this weekend and find you have overdone it with alcohol or other drugs don’t be afraid to visit the welfare team or event medics. Remember, start low and go slow!

If you’re the designated driver home from a #festival be sure to:
✔️ Leave enough time to sober up before driving ✔️Get a good nights sleep
✔️ Stay hydrated & eat something ✔️Take plenty of breaks
If in doubt it’s better to delay your journey than risk driving over the limit!#staysafe #festivalsafe #driving
