Safety info

We're almost there... The site is coming along nicely, we just have a few bits of important safety info we wanted to share with you before the gates open. Don’t forget to look after yourself, your friends, people around you and your valuables; the following is extremely important: 1)    Y Not has a zero drugs policy. Searches will take place as a condition of entry to the festival. If you are found with drugs or legal highs you will be denied entrance to the event.  If you are found in possession of drugs or legal highs during the festival, you will ejected from the site if safe to do so. 2)    This policy extends to legal highs. Do not bring them to Y Not.  Just the fact that a substance is sold as ‘legal’ doesn’t mean that it’s safe or legal.  If you look at the packaging, you will see that legal/herbal highs are sold with “not for human consumption” marked on the packet. There is good reason for this - their contents are toxic, even the plant-based ones; they are untested on humans and they do kill.   68 people died from taking them in 2012. We don’t sell them on site and we ban them from the event, as they are unpredictable and can be dangerous. Our medics and the local hospital may not know how best to treat you, as it may not be clear what you have digested. 3)    Don’t bring anything valuable to Y Not; if you do, please make sure you keep it very safe and with you at all times. 4)    Security are there to help. Please report any problems straight away and we’ll get them sorted for you. 5)     For all you bright sparks, pyrotechnics/flares are not allowed at Y Not. Please do not bring them to the festival. 6)    Camp Watch! Please, please look after each other. Get to know who is camping next to you – it’s all part of what makes the festival enjoyable for all. We’re all there for the craic   Much love and see you IMMINENTLY! Y Not Festival
