Here at the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre, we want you to have the best possible time. The time of your life. The right time. We also want your friends and the people around you to have a great time too. This can of course absolutely be achieved without the use or abuse of alcohol or drugs. So…don’t stuff up your weekend or that of your friends by being reckless, eh? Please be aware that although the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre may feel like a sovereign dominion (her own country), the usual laws apply within the festival boundaries as they do outside them. Perhaps more importantly, the laws of the human body are likewise no different here than anywhere else. If you are intending to take drugs or drink alcohol, please do take these things into consideration:
- Rest and rehydrate. The festival goes for three days – pace yourself if you want to enjoy it all. Take regular drinks of water.
- Mixing alcohol and drugs greatly increases the possibility of overdose or accidents, as does mixing two or more drugs, even if taken hours apart.
- Do not use drugs on your own. If you are feeling unwell – tell someone.
- If you or someone near you is feeling unwell, immediately alert our staff, or a Helper Hut, or security, or the First Aid team (opposite the Info Centre – to the far right of stage). Please also be aware that if you or a friend has taken drugs and is in need of medical attention the medical staff are not obliged to involve the police. So do not be afraid to go to First Aid. The First Aid team is not here to judge you, they are here to help you – be honest with them.
We are asking you to help – if you see someone who is obviously unwell – please alert us immediately. We have a team of dedicated Helpers roaming the festival keeping an eye out as well.
