SAFETY

All festival guests go through a security check whenever they enter the gates of the festival area. All bags will be checked before entering the festival area. Bags and backpacks should be left at home or at the hotel to expedite security screening and should be left in the cloakroom or storage compartment of the festival area during the festival.

Hundreds of law enforcement officers take care of customer safety both inside the festival area and in their outdoor areas. In addition, police and rescue authorities and SPR’s first aid and support services are on call.

If you need advice, you can ask questions to the festival area’s stewards and Weekend staff.

In case of need, approach any festival first aid worker and / or security staff.

The festival’s first aid point can be found on the festival map, which will be published closer to the event.
