Dream for sunshine, pack for rain!

As much as we’d love to be bouncing about to our fave bands in the sunshine, it’s much more likely we’ll be singing under a storm cloud, so remember to pack your wellies and waterproof, also serious sunstroke or sunburn can be caused by the sun on unprotected skin – wear a high factor sun cream.

Look after yourself, and look out for others

Ask for help if you or your friends become unwell immediately. We are here to help you.

Prolonged exposure to high volume noise can cause severe hearing damage, take a break the music if you need to or stand a distance away from the main speakers.  We can assure you the it will still sound as good and you might even have more room to dance!

Respect the Site

After the festival, the site is home various other events, we will do our best to ensure the site is given back in good condition, but we need your help, please do your best not to damage the grounds and surrounding areas.

Think about it

Youth Beatz is an alcohol free event, and illegal drugs are no more legal at Youth Beatz than they are any other place, don’t risk being refused entry.

Familiarize Yourself with the Site

When you come into Youth Beatz, make sure you know where everything is, this way you will know exactly where to go if you need to.  We also have loads of friendly staff and volunteers on site to help you and point you in the right direction.

It’s also a good idea to arrange a meeting place and time with your friends incase you get separated.

Stay Hydrated
