GlobalGathering, previously styled as the Global Gathering Festival, has in recent years established itself as the most cutting edge music festival in the UK and is a popular draw for young festival-goers eager to seek the joy and euphoria of a summer music festival. The 2014 GlobalGathering Festival takes place on the 25-26th July. In order to ensure that you get the most out of the festival, here is Accident Advice Helpline’s survivor guide to the Global Gathering Festival.
Festivals can sometimes be quite dangerous. Often there are copious amount of alcohol involved and the unpredictable British summers can make festivals quickly turn into mudslides, creating a serious risk of slips, trips and falls. In order to prevent the risk of slipping, tripping or falling, it may be a good idea to bring a sturdy pair of wellingtons with you. In the unfortunate event that you suffer an injury on site, there are stewards and trained first aiders on site to help should you require first aid.
Accessing cash on site
Festivals can be expensive and it’s quite easy to spend a little more money than you had intended to. In the event that the funds you budgeted for the weekend were insufficient then fear not. There are a number of ATMs at various locations throughout the campsite, meaning that you won’t be stranded without any access to cash.
No glass on site
In order to reduce the chances of suffering a nasty cut from a broken piece of glass and to prevent the traumatising ordeal of being attacked with a piece of glass, the festival operates a policy of not allowing glass on site. Campers are not permitted to bring their own alcohol on site and only non-alcoholic refreshments will be permitted, provided they are brought in sealed bottles.
Some festivals do not provide adequate basic facilities for their campers, however, at Global Gathering this is not the case. There are a number of facilities provided for those camping out for the weekend including; running water, toilets, on-site supermarket, camping supplies and bars to ensure that you won’t be dehydrated or go hungry.
