7. The first aid is your friend!
If you are not feeling well, if one of your friends is nosies or even if you just need a paracetamol or a band-aid: please don't be afraid and just go to the first aid tent! The people there are professionals and what you tell them is confidential you won't get fined or prosecuted for drug use. Being open about your or your friends drug use makes it easier to help you: they are basically your best friends at an event. Never leave anyone who's feeling sick alone: ask for help and stay with them until medical help arrives. Not at an event? Call 112. Celebrate safe!

8. Smoking...
Smoking is not allowed in the big-top tent La Piña by Someone Told Me (the big-top tent with 8 masts), if you do however smoke you will get fined, this can get as high as a fine of €4800,-. No joke, undercover officers will be checking this. Smoking in here will also result in removement from the event. At this moment Essential Outdoor is over for you.

9. Are you in the age of 16 or 17 years?
We want to remind you that it is not allowed in the Netherlands to drink alcohol when you’re in the age of 16/17. We also warn you for the fact that there’ll be (undercover) inspections executed by the government. When consuming alcohol while in the age of 16/17 you risk a huge penalty (€90,-) of which you could’ve done a lot of cool stuff! You will also be redirected to bureau Halt. On top of that: consuming alcohol is extra bad for you since your brains and other organs are still in development.

10. Drugs...
At this event there’s a zero tolerance policy. It is not allowed to use (or have) soft- and/or harddrugs (no joints either). Please pay attention: strict search at the entrance for drugs and other forbidden items. If you do however are in the possession of drugs our security is forced to hand you over to the local police. The event has come to an end for you at this point.

In addition to these tips we also have some extra weather measures, which can be found here. All travel related questions will be answered here.
