Drug Policy

Drugs and Illegal Substances


Doune the Rabbit Hole is a family friendly festival, we don’t condone or approve of the use of illegal substances as per our Zero Tolerance Drugs Policy.

The dealing in or use of illegal drugs is not condoned by Doune the Rabbit Hole. Drug enforcement laws are as applicable on site as any where else in the country. Police officers will be on site and will deal with drug offences in accordance with national guidelines. If you deal in drugs, it is likely that you will be arrested. Neither anti-social nor illegal behaviour will be tolerated and participants will leave themselves liable for eviction from the site.

The terms and conditions of entry to DTRH: Drugs are illegal and dangerous and will not be tolerated at Doune the Rabbit Hole. Please do not bring and/or take illegal drugs. Searches will be carried out by security and, if you are found to have any drugs, they will be confiscated and you will be reported to the police.

If you bring drugs with you, you risk having them confiscated and possible eviction from the Festival. And if you buy them on site, you risk getting ripped off; whether with fake substances or short deals, and with pills, powders and liquids there is a risk that what you buy could be harmful and even life threatening. The police have made big efforts in recent years to crack down on the sale of drugs at the Festival. People do get busted every year, and the Festival can have offenders thrown off the site, and refused re-admission.

Experimenting with drugs can lead to adverse reactions. If you do take drugs and you become ill, depressed or frightened please ask a steward to direct you to one of the facilities on site which can help and support you.
