Festival season is in full swing and while it has been filled with spectacular moments, there has been an increase in concern about safety measures at live events.

Things like overcrowding, unfit medical staff, and unfortunately, inconsiderate, disrespectful, selfish, and downright nasty individuals are becoming more prevalent.

Some situations that take place are outside of our control, but we can work together to increase safety at live events by recognizing what we can control. Stay tuned for five safety tips to remember for festival season that you can implement today.

1. Review The Event Map

Take a mental note of where exits and medical tents are. Once onsite, do a lap around the venue to locate these places physically. If the event has a physical copy of the map, grab one and keep it with you so you can use it even if your phone runs out of battery.

Knowing where the key places are at every event can help you be prepared if a situation arises where you need help immediately.

Bonus: find a police officer and/or medical professional on-site and ask them any questions you may have when you first arrive. Utilize medical help if needed. Medical services are free at most (if not all) events. 

2. Better To Be Safe Than Sorry 

If you see something, say something. Stay aware of your surroundings at all times and see who is around you, whenever you are in a crowd.

If you get an off feeling or feel suspicious about something, trust your gut. It is better to report something that feels off and have it turn out to be nothing then fail to report something that turns into a larger issue.

It is important to note that you should not put yourself in harm’s way by trying to assuage the potential situation. Instead report to staff, security, or other people trained to address what’s happening.

3. Invest In A Hydration Pack Or Water Bottle Holder

Hydration is a crucial part of maintaining your health and mental clarity at any event. Water stations are located at most major festivals and are available for your use at any time.

If the investment into a hydration pack is not possible, bring in a sturdy, refillable water bottle. Hydrating will allow for more dancing and feeling more alert and awake. Make sure to get in those electrolytes as well! 

4. Before, During, And After The Show

Maintaining physical and mental health is crucial in life and festivals are no exception.

Some examples of your plan can include having a regular workout schedule, creating a grocery list to pick up once you get home, and setting a budget for what money you’ll spend on eating during the festival/event.

Small actions will make a big difference at the event itself and allow you to stay more aware and feel better. Talk with other festival goers if you are not sure where to start!

5. Do Harm Reduction Training/Research.

End Overdose is a service that has been implemented at all major Insomniac festivals. They give out free Narcan to anyone who attends one of their 5-minute training sessions at events.

Beyond in-person training, keep yourself informed about what harm reduction services are out there. Increasing your knowledge will help your confidence inside and outside the dance floor.

Tinlicker Drop ‘Slipstream’ And Announce Next European Tour



Tinlicker European Tour 2024 POSTER V2 819x1024 1

Triple-Platinum and Triple-Gold awarded Dutch duo Tinlicker released their [PIAS] Électronique debut, ‘Slipstream’, featuring the passionate voice of singer/songwriter Julia Church. Available now on streaming platforms.

Slipstream’ explores new territory for the multi-metallic pair (Gold and Platinum, including 3 triples, all over Europe plus Canada for ‘Because You Move Me’). With a more organic live sound, rounding out their signature melodic Progressive House anthems. Currently touring the US and India, Tinlicker also announced early 2024 tour dates for their legions of European fans.

The 2024 Tour

Having conquered London’s Roundhouse this year, Tinlicker’s next UK dates include the legendary Troxy London, Marble Factory (Bristol), and Mandela Hall (Belfast). EU dates include the iconic Gashouder (NL), Elysee Montmartre (Paris), Magazzini Generali (Milan), Vicar Street (Dublin), Live Music Hall (Cologne), Fabrik (Hamburg), and more, breaking new ground in many cities/nations.

Tinlicker Slipstream

The ‘Slipstream’ track has a breathy, echoing vibe. A full song with Church’s strong but yearning voice delivers heartfelt lyrics over a deceptively simple melodic House beat. Her vocals star alongside entrancing raindrop guitar notes. An arresting, stop-and-listen track which can also captivate dancefloors, that’s what this song feels like.

Tinlicker opened up about the track, and went on to say: “Julia’s very special edgy voice became the one for us. (…) The beauty of [her] vocals and Nathan’s songwriting combined with our soundscapes capture this moment“.

“Slipstream’ has this melancholic feeling, the urge that you want something, but you can’t get reach it.”
