Teenagers often feel invincible. Organizers perform drug testing to prevent deaths. The audience members arrive at the Boomtown Fair and erect tents; Rose hides MDMA, ketamine, and marijuana internally.
Wendy Teasdill returns every year to commemorate her daughter's death. Paul Bunt will overhaul the policing effort. If drugs can get into a prison, they will get into a musical festival.
Security, medical, crime, and drug experts discuss collaboration over the next five days. Workers erect a staffed field hospital. Tic Tac staff members test samples to learn what drugs are circulating at Boomtown Fair.
The Loop typically runs the drug testing site where police agree not to arrest festival-goers; critics worry it endorses drug use. The non-profit organization will not test this year, but will offer counseling.
Christian Kobel runs a drug testing site funded by the local government. People approach the tent with their drugs and police agree not to arrest them. A third of the samples reveal very high strength MDMA.
Participants enjoy the Boomtown Fair while "back of house" drug testing finds dangerous substances. PMMA is considerably more toxic than MDMA. Chill Welfare looks for symptoms in patients.
