Preventing Harmful Drug Use In Australia

Drug use at outdoor music festivals project

Drug use at outdoor music festivals project

This project is investigating drug use, drug policy and harm reduction at outdoor music festivals in two Australian states: Western Australia and Victoria. The findings from this project will be used to help develop recommendations aimed at reducing the risk of future drug-related harm at these events.

As part of this project, I'll be speaking directly to festival-goers to get their view on a variety of drug-related festival issues. I'll also be speaking to a range of key stakeholders; including emergency health services, law enforcement, government and the music industry. All information collected will be confidential and anonymous. Festival-goers involved in Phase 1 and 3 will receive a JB Hi-Fi or iTunes gift voucher as a reimbursement for their time and those who complete the online survey will go in the draw to win a $500 JB Hi-Fi gift voucher.
