As Music Festival season quickly approaches, Star Events offers a few tips on how to keep safe while still being able to soak in all the concert fun!
1.BEAT THE HEAT
Hot days and physical exertion, don’t always make the best combo. In order to avoid heat-related illness and help protect you from the sun, it is important to:
- Stay hydrated
- Apply and reapply sunscreen every three to six hours
- Wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing
- Take breaks in the shade
2.STAY HYDRATED, DON’T OVERINDULGE
Staying hydrated is essential at a Music Festival. Drinking water frequently and fueling up on snacks like watermelon, grapes and berries can help a ton, especially when the heat index reaches and surpasses 100. If you’re drinking alcohol it is important to maintain a good water-to-alcohol ratio. Try to drink twice as much water as alcohol.
3.FIGHT OFF GERMS
Close quarters make concerts a nest for various viruses and bacterial infection. To keep yourself cleared from sickness, wash your hands and use napkins to turn on sinks and open doors. It can also be helpful to load up on vitamin C in the weeks prior to attending a music festival in order to strengthen your immune system.
4.AVOID THE USAGE OF DRUGS
Each year people die or are severely hurt because of drug use or heavy drinking. Be smart, it’s not worth the risk.
- Eat healthy and don’t skip meals.
- Protect your ears and don’t stand too close to speakers.
