KEEP YOURSELF & YOUR BELONGINGS SAFE
Bestival is a very safe place to be, but the following standard festival advice is worth taking in none-the-less… better safe than sorry!
Be aware of your surroundings; remember that you are safer in a group.
Look after your belongings – make sure you keep your mobile, iPod and wallet/ purse safe and out of sight. Do not leave valuable items on display in your car. Use the locker services available on-site – Charge & Store and Giglocker.
Don’t leave your drink unattended – even soft drinks can be spiked. Remember, alcohol or drugs can affect your ability to make safe judgments. Drink in moderation to ensure you remain alert and aware of your surroundings.
Make friends with your neighbours. Organise a meeting point with your friends where you will be three times a day in case you get split up.
If you see anything that concerns you or if you see anyone acting suspiciously please speak to the nearest police officer, security or steward.
