If you’re not feeling well, please visit the “first aid” / “EHBO”, they are there for you. Take your time to chill out, eat some food and ice.
If you need water, you can either buy it at the bar or drink some at the free taps near the toilets. It’s advisable not to drink great amounts of water (no more than 1 or 2 glasses an hour) and to eat something.
If you want information about (health implications of) drugs, visit the Celebrate Safe stand near the fairground and check out the 10 tips on how to party safely.
PROTECT YOUR EARS
We advise wearing earplugs with a music filter. There’s a special shop at the festival next to the first aid where we sell Alpine x Awakenings earplugs. Earplugs will also be available at the merchandise store and markets.
WEATHER AND CLOTHING
Prepare for all weather conditions. April in the Netherlands can be sunny during the day, cold in the evenings, and rain can be included. But that won't stop us :) With 6 massive tent areas and a semi-open-air area, the festival is produced for all weather conditions.
Check out our advice below:
Don’t forget to use sunscreen when it’s sunny (you can bring your own, no spray)
Drink enough water, but not too much
Take a break sometimes and don’t forget to grab a bite
We advise you to wear comfortable clothes and layers, so you’re able to take something off or put something extra on
During the night the temperature can drop, don’t forget to bring some warm clothes
Think of yourself, care about others
The first aid team is your friend
Don’t push your limits, be responsible
Most of all enjoy the festival and dance!
ARE YOU OKAY?
At awakenings, we aim to create a space where you can be yourself and lose yourself. We value and respect people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and ethnicities. Therefore, we do not tolerate any form of (sexual) harassment. When you think you see someone being harassed, ask the question: ARE YOU OK? A simple question so everyone feels safe and respected. Let’s take care of each other.
