Electric Zoo Codes of Conduct

What are some safe practices I can use at Electric Zoo?

Please take good care of yourself and help watch out for the people around you. If you see someone slip, trip, or overheat, someone who needs medical attention, rehydration, or just a helping hand, please keep the positive vibe alive, and be a friend to a friend in need. Remember that it's very important to stay hydrated, so take advantage of the free high-speed water refill stations around the festival grounds. Be aware of how much you're exerting yourself and take breaks from dancing. When you sweat, your body is losing water and you need to replace it to make sure you don't overheat.

For more important safety tips, please read our blog post here
