Alcohol, Drugs and Contributing
All Buddhafield events are drug and alcohol free. We believe this is one of the things that makes the atmosphere at our events special. A great many people come to Buddhafield because that’s our stated aim. It’s a value we actively want to promote.
This applies to the crew at least as much as ticket holders: crew (many of whom are on site for several weeks during set-up) strongly set the tone of the event.
People tell us that they didn't know they could enjoy a festie without their drug of choice, so if this would be a new way of experiencing a festie, then why not give it a try! Whatever your views on drugs, though, please bear in mind that if you choose to work with us, then we expect this value to be respected.
This applies to “legal highs” as well as illegal drugs and we reserve the right to ask you to leave if you can’t respect this.
