    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.nl and www.unity.nl for the health risks and more information.

There are earplugs available at all the bars at Orbit festival.

    Medical aid

    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.
