Booze and Drug Bus

Every year for more than a decade there has been a Booze Bus operating on the road either to or from the festival, and sometimes both. In recent years these buses have also been testing for drugs. In 2008 Victoria Police mounted a large roadside operation for traffic going into the festival. This could happen again at any time. The Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre festival organisers do not condone the use of illicit drugs and, quite frankly, consider driving over the legal limit to be a clear infringement of the No Dickheads Policy. So please be warned and take great care in driving to and from the festival. Designate a driver, organise a bus, or ask (very kindly and with twinkling eyes) someone to pick you up.

For those of you who are driving and have imbibed over the course of the festival, breath-testing will be available at Reception on your way out throughout the weekend, as well as the Info Centre and Helper Huts on the last day of the festival. Make sure you check your blood alcohol content before you get behind the wheel. Massive thanks to the TAC and ‘Vanessa’ for this wonderful program.

You can also be informed about drink and drug driving at your nearest Helper Hut.

Many thanks for your solid behaviour here.
