You may want to go to the main entrance and ask one of our door staff, they’ll guide you to the awareness tent.

  • Our dance floors are a sacred safe space for everyone. Any dangerous behavior will not be tolerated.
  • Be respectful to others. Consent is the key word.
  • If you are feeling unwell, take a step back. Get your friends to ask for help
  • Keep yourself hydrated
  • Paramedics are also available throughout our events
  • Look out for the Awareness team onsite, they will be roaming the festival (wearing pink tees), you can also drop by their tent right next to the cloak room and bar top-up stations on your way into the venue.
  • Get some rest, the festival days are long party days. It’s important to re-energize between one day and the other.
  • Don’t forget to go home. Staying up and dancing for long hours is not an endurance contest. Listen to your body and make sure to give it a rest.
