Alcohol and drugs use
It’s well known that there are risks to the use of alcohol and/or drugs. But be extra careful when using alcohol and drugs at a temperature above 20 degrees Celsius. Alcohol and drugs increase the body temperature. So, if you’re dancing for a long period and drink too little the risk of overheating increases. Make sure to drink plenty of water but also not too much: 1 or 2 glasses per hour maximum. If you drink too much water in a short period there’s also the risk of water poisoning. If someone dies when using alcohol/drugs this is usually caused by overheating or water poisoning due to alcohol/drugs. So be extra careful and make sure to cool yourself down every now and then. Look out for each other and don’t leave each other’s side. Make sure to test your drugs before you visit the festival, you can’t do this at the festival itself. Visit www.drugsenuitgaan.nland www.unity.nl for health risks and more information.
Free Your Mind Festival supports the ‘I Love My Ears’ I campaign because we find it important that you will be able to enjoy good music not just now but also in 20 years from now. You should take good care of your ears because of this. You can find a number of useful and handy tips at www.ilovemyears.nl on how to protect your ears as good as possible whilst still enjoying music. There are earplugs available at all the bars at Free Your Mind Festival.
Visit the first aid post if you or one of your friends is not feeling well. Don’t be scared to tell them about your use of alcohol or drugs: the better you inform them about the situation, the better they are able to help you. The medical confidentiality is applicable here as well which means we won’t press charges, so feel free to share.
After the party?
Forced and unsafe sex are more common when people are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Respect one another and check out www.sense.info/soas for more information on unsafe sex. Next to this, the use of alcohol and drugs can result in concentration impaired and a lower responsiveness rate which causes you to be a danger to yourself and other road users. Make sure to stop on time and to adjust your transportation to this. And don’t forget to drink water or isotone drinks to replenish your fluids before you go to sleep.
RECYLCE CUP SYSTEM
Some visitors are already familiar with it, for others it is a new system: recycling your plastic cup at a festival. The new system takes some getting used to, but is certainly the future when it comes to sustainability and the reduction of plastic. That is why it will soon also be mandatory for festivals. How does it work?
- You will receive a recycle token from Free your mind Festival upon arrival
- You get your drink at the bar, and pay cashless
- At the bar you order a drink and pay with your debit card + 1 recycle token per cup or bottle
- When you have finished the drink you can hand in the cup or bottle at the bar or at the toilets for a recycle token.
You can also hand in your cup for a new drink at the bar, you only pay for the drink
- When you no longer have a cup or bottle, you pay for it at the bar.
It is a challenge to arrange this properly, among other things, more crew is deployed to separate everything behind the bars and to transport it from there. Nevertheless, Free your mind festival B.V would like to contribute to a sustainable future for The Next Generation together with you.
Due to intensive renovations it will not be possible to acces the festival terrain via the John Frost bridge during 4 + 5 June 2022.
