We have a bit of advice for you – how to enjoy yourself and stay safe


Your passport and ID card


Going to a festival, don’t forget to take with you your ID card or Passport. Keep it always with you, it can help you in many situations.


Going with children


If you are going to the festival with your children, please make sure that they have wristbands with your number. In case of any complications, it would be very helpful in locating a parent.

ICE


Please write down telephone number of your family member or friend as ICE, for a quick contact in case of emergency. Thanks to that if anything happened your loved one can be informed immediately. You can also get a small ICE card with a name and contact number of your chosen person. Remember to have this card at all the time with you.


Don’t take any valuables


Don’t take with you any valuable items. For your safety leave it at home, so they don’t get lost during a festival.
Headphones for children. Take care of your kids. Don’t forget to take for them cancelling noise headphones that are going to protect their hearing against loud noise.

Drinking water


Remember to stay hydrated during the festival. Drink lots of water, this is very important! During concerts or long walks around the festival area, your organism is getting dehydrated. Don’t forget to keep a bottle of water always with you. It will protect you from fainting and headaches. Remind your friends to stay hydrated. Remember that children are going to get dehydrated much quicker than adults – so it is your responsibility to make sure that they drink enough to stay healthy.


A cap and sun cream


To have a cap on festivals is very important. Thanks to them you will avoid sunstroke. Sun cream is also necessary – it will prevent you from painful skin burns. It applies to both young and older participants of a festival.

Bandage and medicines that you always take

During a festival, you can injure yourself easily. Lots of walking and high temperatures are especially dangerous for your feet. Make sure that you have a bandage with you. If you take any medicines regularly – also take them with you. Pass this information to your friends, they will know how to react in case of an emergency.

Don’t take food from strangers


Never take food offered by a stranger. Eat only this food that is sold in authorized points.
