Falls Festival organisers have issued a red alert about a “dangerous orange pill” doing the rounds on the street.
Taking to Facebook, they passed on a warning from medics about the deadly drug, which is currently “in circulation across Australia”.
They also urged punters to steer clear of any illicits at Falls this summer, reminding us that “one pill can kill”.
“Although we’ve had a safe Falls Festival to date, our medical teams have alerted us to a dangerous orange pill that is currently in circulation across Australia,” organisers report.
“Regardless of pill variation, we want to remind everyone of the potentially fatal risks that come with illicit substances. You do not know what is in them, how your body will react, there is no safe level of consumption.
“One pill can kill.”
They also used the occasion to remind punters of the steps to follow in the event of an emergency at any of the festival legs.
“We also want to reiterate if you or any of your friends are feeling unwell or concerned for your health please seek medical attention immediately. The event and medical teams are here to help you without judgement,” they continue.
“If you see anyone in trouble, please alert event staff immediately or call the Patron Safety Hotline to report. We also encourage you to dispose of any drugs safely. We want all of you to have a great time and enjoy a safe festival experience.”
Falls Fest is currently underway in Lorne and Marion Bay, before it heads to Byron Bay and Fremantle over the coming days (catch the set times here).
Meanwhile, the national campaign for drug law reform Take Control has responded to the tragedy by once again pleading with the NSW liberal government to make music festivals safer by reconsidering their staunch opposition to pill-testing.
“This doesn’t need to be the summer of festival deaths,” Ted Noffs Foundation CEO and campaign spokesperson Matt Noffs said.
