Being Safe When Going To Melbourne Music Festivals

There are a lot of great ways to have fun at Melbourne music festivals while being safe. Because there will be a lot of people, and many will be partying, you should learn how to deal with the situation. Below are some great tips to get you into a position to just have fun!

If there will be drinking, never take a drink from someone else that you don’t know. Even if you do know the person, you don’t want to take a risk if they had left the drink alone or got it from someone else. There are drugs people can add to a drink, and if you’re at a festival they may be trying to get you to come with them or carry you off when you are blacked out. That’s why you should just throw out a drink that was out of your sight, and if you feel way more intoxicated than you should be you need to get someone to watch over you that you know and trust.

Staying hydrated is important if you want to be sure that you’re able to last in a hot crowd for a long time to see a lot of music. The problem is that if you’re drinking or doing a lot of dancing even, you could become dehydrated pretty fast. That could end in you fainting or even having to go to a hospital. Even if you are drinking alcohol, you can stay more hydrated if you have a glass of water after every drink. Bring your own water if they are charging a lot of money for it.

Never take drugs that you’re given at a festival if you want to be safe. Getting a buzz may seem like a good idea, but there’s really no way to tell what you’re putting into your body. There are quite a few drugs that can do a lot of damage to you, and street drugs generally aren’t clean anyways. If you do feel the need to indulge, at least get a testing kit that can be used to tell you if the chemical is what someone says it is.

It’s best to make sure that you are planning to see only the acts you’re interested in. At a festival there may be more than one stage with musicians playing. That’s why it’s best to stick with a schedule that lets you know when you should switch groups and go to another stage if possible. When you’re able to plan out your trip, you’ll see a lot more great acts and can avoid those that may just be likely to bore you.

The key to working with Melbourne music festivals is to know how to be safe and what you can do in an emergency. There are quite a few options you can work with as you can see here. Make sure that if anything seems amiss, that you get out of the situation.
