7. The First Aid (EHBO) is your friend!

Do you, or one of your friends don't feel good? Don't hesitate: visit the First Aid. Always be open and honest about what you may have used, so the First Aid personnel can help you in the right way. For that reason you should always tell your friends what you've used. If you've consumed drugs and tell this to the Frist Aid personnel this won't have any legal consequences. Not for you, and not for the one(s) who've brought you to the First Aid.

8. Smoking...

Smoking is not allowed in "The Dirty Primal" (the 8 masts big-top tent), very high fines are the result of smoking. If you do smoke in this tent you will be removed from the event. In this case Essential Festival is over for you.

9. Are you in the age of 16 or 17 years?

We sincerely want to remind you that it is not allowed to consume alcohol in the Netherlands while being in the age of 16/17. We warn you for the fact that there'll be (undercover) checks by the council. You'll risk getting fined (€90,-). And drinking alcohol is extra bad for you since your brains and organs are evolving.

10. Drugs...

At Essential Festival there's a Zero Tolerance Policy. During this edition there'll be tightened controls and when being in the posession of drugs you'll be handed over to the police. Essential Festival will be over for you.
