Every year we work harder to boost security and safety measures for Ragers. These measures include working with local police services and private security companies to monitor the festival across multiple venues. A comprehensive safety team is employed that includes the city, medics, The Red Frogs and is driven by our proprietary event technology. The technology allows Rage Festival to track, identify and act, armed with information on an individual in any crises situation.
If you’re lightheaded, nauseated or have too many blisters from dancing the night away, please visit one of our medical tents. Alternatively, feel free to flag down one of the many Red Frogs volunteers roaming throughout the venue, they are easily identified wearing a Red Frogs t-shirt and lanyard.
MEET THE RED FROGS
Throughout our festival grounds, you’ll find the Red Frogs – a volunteer support network for students. Their positive, sober presence goes a long way. These heroic friends of the festival stay on their feet all night till the sun comes up or the last Rager is home safe.
How they help:
Save their 24/7 Hotline and introduce yourself to a Red Frog when you arrive.
(Phone icon): 060REDFROG / 060 733 3764
Parents are also welcome to call the number and request support.
NO QUESTIONS ASKED
The Medical staff and Red Frogs are safe havens – meaning, you can’t get in trouble for any information you share with them during Rage Festival. So, if a friend needs help, please stick around and help fill in the blanks. No one will hassle you. And if you think you might need assistance, don’t worry, speak up. Whatever you tell us is confidential. Medical teams are far more effective if they have accurate information regarding any patient.
LOST & FOUND
If you have lost something at one of our events, head over to the info & queries counter at The Sound Factory.
PLAY HARD, NOT HIGH
Rage Festival is an amazing experience. You can enjoy the festival with little or no alcohol most certainly without illegal substances. If you’re planning on drinking alcohol, be smart about how much you consume, know your limit. More booze does not equal more fun, and alcohol is not a rehydrate. It’s important to remember that your body weight and height will factor into how much alcohol is safe to consume. Always have water on hand should you require it.
Rage Festival has an absolute zero-tolerance drug policy at all of its events. Don’t be the person that ends up getting escorted out of and and banned from the festival! Keep the week great for yourself and your friends.
If you suspect that someone is suffering from a medical issue, seek immediate assistance at a medic tent, find a Red Frog or Rage Festival staff member. Remember, you will not get in trouble for seeking medical help!
Further, if you are offered any illegal substance either inside or outside a Rage Festival venue, please inform a Rage Festival staff member immediately.
