There will be no receipts issued for any confiscated/surrendered items. You may be searched at the entrances & upon exit from the festival site. Your alcohol allocation must be brought into the festival at time of first entry only . If you leave the festival grounds alcohol will not be permitted on re-entry. Sunday Ticket Holders are not allowed to bring any alcohol or liquids of any kind on site.
Ensure you know where your nearest emergency exits are. Follow any instructions given by Stewards, Security and Police. Move away from any dangerous/antisocial behaviour. Notify Security if you see any antisocial behaviour. Move to where there is more space if you see a crowd surge occur. Ask for help if you need it and help others, especially if someone falls. Stay calm - if you're in distress, ask to be taken to the Welfare Tent.
Look after yourself and those around you, even people you don't know. If you suspect somebody is unwell take them to a first aid tent. If they are not responding please alert a Steward immediately who will call for the necessary help. Please don't attempt to move them as you may do more harm than good.
If you need to take medication regularly remember to bring it and let your friends know of any illness or allergies you may have and where your medication is stored.
If you're at Life Festival and feel you need to talk something through the Samaritans are available 24-hours a day for the duration of the event.
If you don't need it don't bring it! Carry money, credit cards, mobile phones, cameras, etc. with you at all times. Don't assume that you've hidden it well in your tent.
We work closely with the Garda & Security to try to alleviate the problems. There is a lock-up facility based in the Festival for your use.
Mark your property with your name & postcode only, thieves don't want marked property and it will significantly reduce the risk of items being stolen. Tag your keys with your phone number & a friends address. We find many keys after the event & marking them means we can contact you.
Leave your tent untidy - don't make it easy for thieves to grab a bag with everything in it. When asleep, hide your money, etc. carefully & don't put everything together. Too much alcohol can make you sleep heavily & you may not hear somebody entering your tent.
If you see anybody acting suspiciously anywhere in the festival site please alert a Security person, a Steward or the Garda. If you think you've had an item stolen, please go to the Welfare Tent as it may have been handed in before reporting to the Guards.
There is a 24-hour medical centre & other first aid points with fully qualified doctors, nurses, ambulances & St Johns staff. Please familiarise yourself with their location. There are also trained welfare staffs, to help with personal problems, which are available 24 hours & situated in the Welfare Tent.
Full emergency services include the Guards, Ambulance & Fire Services. If you need any assistance DO NOT call 999, as you will unnecessarily tie up services from a nearby town. There are posters around the festival site with on-site emergency numbers. Programme them into your mobile phone on arrival.
