Attending a festival should be a fun and exciting experience, but it's important to take some safety precautions to ensure that you and your friends stay safe throughout the event. Here are some tips for safeguarding yourself at Bournemouth 7s:

  • Stick together: Don't wander off alone, and make sure you establish a meeting point in case you get separated.
  • Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. Music festivals can be hot and crowded, and it's easy to get overheated. Bring a refillable water bottle and use the water stations provided.
  • Be aware of your surroundings: Stay alert and keep an eye out for any suspicious or dangerous activity. If you see something that doesn't look right, report it to festival security or law enforcement.
  • Don't accept drinks or drugs from strangers: It's important to stay sober and alert at a music festival. Never accept drinks or drugs from someone you don't know.
  • Use sunscreen: Protect your skin from the sun by using sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Reapply it every few hours, especially if you're sweating or swimming.
  • Dress appropriately: Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that are suitable for the weather conditions. Bring a jacket or sweater for cooler evenings.
  • Charge your phone: Make sure your phone is fully charged before you go to the festival. Bring a portable charger or power bank to keep your phone charged throughout the day.
  • Know the emergency exits: Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the festival layout and the location of emergency exits. If an emergency occurs, you'll know where to go.
  • Have fun, but be responsible: Music festivals are meant to be fun, but it's important to stay responsible and make smart decisions. Don't drink too much, and don't engage in risky behavior that could put yourself or others in danger.
