Hugs Not Drugs @Future Music Festival

Future Music Festival… one of the few times of the year roided up guys and fake titted girls can show off what they’ve got to 30,000 other people, whilst gabba-ing, pinging and crowd surfing. Ok, so a little bit exaggerated, but none the less, there sure are a lot of drugs there. Pills, pingas, e, molly… whatever you want to call it, every second person seems to be on it. So here are my reasons being sober at a festival (minus a few vodka redbulls) is the best way to enjoy your day.

To be honest, if you want to go ahead and do it, that’s fine by me, but the bottom line is that pills are illegal in Australia and can cause adverse effects. Security at festivals are usually really tight, with police and sniffer dogs everywhere. To be honest, I was quite surprised at the relative lack of security at Future this year however, is sneaking drugs in really worth a massive fine, or a criminal record? Hell no!

Then there’s the people that don’t know their limits and go too hard and crash hard. Whilst my friends are I were enjoying our lunch, a boy and a girl sat next to us. The girls eyes were rolling back in her head and she was struggling to keep her head up. Her friend just kept asking, ‘are you ok, are you ok?’ Obviously she’s not OK mate! We asked if she needed help and she murmured ‘i’m fine.’ She’s definitely not fine. The girl then began to froth at the mouth before vomiting down herself. We ran and grabbed the police where she refused help, but eventually led her to the emergency tent. Apart from being worried for the girls safety, I was saddened that she got to this state and couldn’t enjoy the rest of the festival.

On a side note of why you won’t see me smuggling pills any time soon, I’ll spare the details but why would you smuggle drugs into a festival in your… ummm… cavities? Ew

And what about me? I just had a few vodka redbulls and let the awesome dance music carry me away. The best part… I could remember every awesome thing that happened, I wasn’t completely wrecked the next day, I don’t have a massive fine or criminal record and I could stay in control and remain aware and alert in an environment which is rather unpredictable.

So stay safe and get high on life and music!

  1. I’ll be behind the scenes when FMF comes to my country next week! I heard the Sydney one was really wild and I hope I’ll get to meet Avicii and Darude in person while I’m working there! Though I won’t be able to join in the crowd (I actually don’t really listen to this genre of music) but I think handling interviews with the artistes will be really awesome 😀

    1. Oh wow! I would love to interview musicians! Just don’t ask Darude about Sandstorm… he’s probably sick to death of that song by now! I’m sure you’ll have a great time so enjoy it!
