SAFETY

PeaceFields takes our festival goers safety seriously. Please read the following information to keep yourself and others safe at PeaceFields.

CARE AND SAFETY

We don’t accept any discrimination towards any individual or groups of individuals. Irrespective of the background of the individual, be that gender, race, disability, age, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity. If you experience or witness discrimination please report it immediately to one of our onsite staff.

  • Decide on a meeting point with your friends. Choose a time and place to meet up later in case you get separated from each other.

  • Learn the layout of the site – particularly your camping area so you can easily find toilets and stewards.

  • Pick out memorable points near your campsite to help remember where your camping spot is located.

  • Get to know the people who are camped around you. It makes for a nicer environment and it means you’ll be familiar with who should be coming and going in your area.

  • Keep your phone charged in case you’re separated from your friends.

  • Stay hydrated. There are water refill zones across PeaceFields.

  • Drink responsibly and know your limit.

  • Festival stewards are here to help you. Don’t be worried about asking for help in any situation, whether it’s asking for directions or to report something or someone you’re worried about.

  • Don’t leave valuables like your phone, purse or car keys in your tent or unattended vehicles. Lockers are available to rent across PeaceFields.

FLARES

Being found in possession of a flare or firework at a music event is now a criminal offence. Anyone found in possession will be removed from site and could face up to 3 months in prison and / or a fine.

FIRE

If a fire starts in your tent, you must get everyone out of the tent and evacuate the area as quickly as possible. You need to get help from the nearest steward or security who will call the onsite Fire Team to extinguish the fire.

In the unlikely event that you cannot find a member of security or steward nearby, then please dial 999.

If you discover a fire in its very early stages and think that you can deal with it yourself. Remember that fire spreads very quickly around flammable materials such as tents and rubbish. Even a small contained fire can quickly spread, producing smoke and fumes which can kill in seconds.

If you are in any doubt, do not tackle the fire, no matter how small. Ensure that you raise the alarm and keep other campers in the vicinity away from the fire until it has been contained and properly extinguished.

Many people put out small fires quite safely. However, some people die or are injured by tackling fires which are beyond their capabilities.

Here is a simple fire code to help you decide whether to put out or get out:

  • Only tackle a fire in its very early stages

  • Always put your own and other people’s safety first

  • Make sure you can escape if you need to and never let a fire block your exit

  • Fire extinguishers are only for fighting a fire in its very early stages. Never tackle a fire if it is starting to spread or has spread to other items nearby

  • Around 70% of fire deaths are caused by people being overcome by smoke and fume

EMERGENCY

If a crime is being committed and there is a risk of injury or of serious damage to property, please contact a member of staff immediately. If in the unlikely event you cannot find someone, please call 999.
