CRIME & DISORDER PREVENTION:
We would suggest if you don’t need an item, don’t bring it especially any valuables! Remember professional photographic equipment is not permitted at the festival. Items should not be left visible in cars.

Try not to put your wallet in your back pocket as this can be an easy target for criminals. If you are not using your phone, put it away so that it is not in reach of an opportunistic individual.

If you do lose your phone, the IMEI number on your phone is unique and can be useful when trying to track your phone. Don’t know what your IMEI is - just type *#06#* into your phone and jot it down somewhere before arriving at the festival. If your phone is registered with your operator, they should be able to block your sim if your phone goes missing.

Don’t carry more cash than you need and it’s best to only bring the bank cards that you will be using.

We know it is safer to carry smaller amounts of cash; so we have provided visa contactless facilities at the bars on site to minimise the amount of cash you need. If you do need a top up ATMs are also available on site.

Please report any crimes as soon as possible to the nearest member of our security teams or a member of the Gardaí on site. Let us know the exact location or nearest landmark and any identifying features you can – clothing etc.

Any person participating in anti-social behaviour or causing a disruption may be liable for eviction from the festival site with no re-entry. Eviction will be at the discretion of the festival team and Gardaí.

The Gardaí can be contacted on 051-391629
