  1. Hello, My name is Marie and I am an undergraduate student in International Event Management at the university of Brighton. For my final year project, I am conducting a research about women's safety at music festivals. It aims at evaluating how safe is a music festival for women and also understanding their risk perception. It would be great if you take the time to answer my survey as it can help the industry to change and adapt in order to guaranty women's safety. It will only take a few minutes, this survey is addressed to women only. Link for survey: https://forms.gle/LrRhJxwwuHXnyBs5A Thank you for your time, Marie Limouzin
  2. Hola Guys! Have you already heard that music concert and festival organizers are increasingly implementing facial recognition technology to enhance safety ? I am currently writing my bachelor thesis concerning this topic and how it could negatively influence the whole amazing event experience. It would be amazing if you could just take 5 minutes and answer my survey! (it is partly concerning the implementation during vacation e.g. China and Malls as well) Thank you a lot! https://www.surveymonkey.de/r/FRT_Anna
  3. Ive been involved with Leeds Fest for many years and watched Leeds get dragged through the mud more than some punters in the mid 2000's up until about 3 years. I wont say what my job was as i feel its irrelevant with what im about to say, after all the years of turning what used to be lets say lively festival most of the weekend which back then turn into full on violence and criminal damage with burning everything and gas canisters exploding this was a regular Sunday night at Leeds fest, this left security for many years of mixing with the festival goers and getting rid of integrant security mentality and getting mainly decent guys to work along side festival goers just letting there hair down, yes there was a few bad apples on both sides of course, but on a whole everyone did a great job turning Leeds back into something to look forward to and not worrying if they felt they needed to pack up Sunday morning to save their personals being robbed or set alight, while not getting a great wage for the conditions security and staff in general had to live like animals while living on site lets not forget the rubbish food, but still expected to keep smiling and put on a happy face, while getting people to behave and encourage people to have fun and not turn to violence. Well guess what people the year i was planning to return after a break to get involved working again and keeping the positive approach going, ive found out today that they have got rid of the main security company not for service but to save money. So all i can say people is try to keep going what you have and try not to let others turn it back to the violent mess it was up until 5 years or so ago. Remember its not about the staff its about the money, its not about the fun its about the money, its not about your safety its about the money.
  4. Festival season is almost here again, and it’s important to stay safe while having fun. In 2015, it was estimated that one in every 500 festivalgoers were victims of crime. People looking to enjoy a summer enjoying live music and an exciting community atmosphere also need to be aware of the security risks. Fuad Zain, Centre Owner of First Security Training, shares some top tips to keep you safe throughout the festival season. 1. Find out where the security are. People tend to behave better when they think they’re being watched. If you pitch your tent near to where security staff are posted, it is likely to remain safer. You’ll also be safe in the knowledge that if any trouble does start, the security won’t be too far away to come to your aid. 2. Find out where the medical tent is. In an emergency, you’ll be glad to get there quickly. Make sure you know exactly where to get help if you or one of your party is injured. If in doubt, you can ask security, and they’ll help you find the medical team. Many security staff also have first aid training, so may be able to help too. 3. Drug Awareness. Festivals are a hotspot for drugs. Last year, three deaths at Leeds Festival and T in the Park were linked to drug use, and a number of assaults have been linked to drink spiking. Some festivals, such as Leeds and Reading, have announced they will have a drug-testing tent, to ensure the safety of festivalgoers. If you suspect you or a friend has been spiked, you should seek help from the first aid tent or a member of security immediately. 4. Stick to busy areas of the festival. Safety in numbers is key here. Avoid the lonely, secluded spots, as this is a prime spot for criminals. Someone on their own is a much easier target than someone surrounded by people, however… 5. Be conscious of pickpockets, busy areas are great for these guys. Try not to carry too much money in one place about your person. Also, a great tip is to pick up an old mobile and leave your smartphone at home. Not only will it be less desirable for thieves but the battery will last forever. 6. Watch what you drink. Drunk people are far easier to take advantage of. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a festival heatwave, but beware, the heat can make any alcohol go straight to your head. Of course you should have fun, but make sure you or one of your group is looking out for danger. If you feel that anything is getting out of control, go straight to security for help. 7. Check your car is locked. If you’re driving to the festival, be aware if you lock your car using a key fob. Thieves are increasingly using signal jammers to prevent doors from locking when the fob is pressed, and the owner leaves the car open, allowing the thief to break in easily and steal any valuables. If you spot anything suspicious when parking your car, report it to festival security. 8. Find out what facilities are available. Larger festivals, such as Glastonbury, have free lock ups where you can store your valuables. Also, many festivals have an area for charging your phone, which is an absolute essential if you or one of your group go missing. 9. Tag your property. Go retro and channel your school days by marking up your property with your name and postcode. This will make your items easier to identify if they’re handed in at the Lost Property booth. Festivals like Glastonbury have UV pens you can borrow, if you want to secretly secure your stuff. 10. Make plans with your friends. Not everyone has the same taste in music or entertainment, but make sure you and your group arrange to meet regularly to make sure everyone is safe. If you have any concerns about the safety of any of your party, speak to a member of the security team
