Safety and Crime Advice
Before you arrive
The best advice is to leave valuables at home if you can. If you are bringing expensive items such as phones and cameras to the festival, take a bit of time to register any property at www.immobilise.com before the event. Therefore, if property is stolen and subsequently recovered by police, it can be returned to you.
