Down The Rabbit Hole. Where you are who you are, when no one can see you

Down The Rabbit Hole will come alive on 3 + 4 + 5 July 2020 in the lush, lakeside forest park De Groene Heuvels in Beuningen, about an hour from Amsterdam.

With weekend tickets on sale only, everybody’s all-in and ready to go for 3 days and 4 nights of amazing experiences and surprises every step of the way. Down The Rabbit Hole feels like a mini getaway where atmosphere rules supreme. It is rooted in adventure, confusion, surrealism and psychedelics, which have been an inspiration for (psycho) rockers, DJs, artists, designers and filmmakers ever since the rise of pop culture in the uncurbed 1960s. Good company, so get ready to tumble..


Be creative, find magic, relax, dance, hustle and flow. Once the air turns electric, the Rabbit Hole goes deeper than you could ever expect.

CELEBRATE SAFE

Nothing beats losing yourself in the music, dancing in bright sunlight, being part of a large crowd of mad keen revellers, dancing until your feet hurt, chilling at the campsite, flirting with beautiful people and partying till you drop with your mates. Yep, partying is fun, but it’s never completely without risk. So it’s good to know what these risks are – ranging from blisters and dehydration to the use of alcohol and other drugs. Below you’ll find some easy and practical tips & tricks to celebrate safely at Down The Rabbit Hole.

+ What you can do and what we do
_ What you can do and what we do

Three days of exploring the festival is lots of fun, especially when the sun’s out. Unfortunately, this is also prime time for sunstrokes and dehydration symptoms. When it’s hot outside sunscreen is essential and a hat, cap or bandana can be a lifesaver. Also keep in mind that temperatures drop during the night and after rain showers. Just bring a nice warm sweater to be sure. We monitor the weather around the clock and will warn visitors via announcement screens and our stage hosts when necessary. Always follow the instructions of the staff. If you want to get in touch with someone at home during a particular situation, please send them plain text messages (SMS) to avoid overloading the mobile network.

Down The Rabbit Hole supports the I Love My Ears campaign, because we think it’s important to enjoy music now ánd in the future. Take care of your ears, you only have two of them. On this website you can find useful tips & tricks for protecting your hearing while still enjoying music. Earplugs from Alpine are available at Down The Rabbit Hole.



+ Sexual harassment
_ Sexual harassment

Everyone can be who he or she wants to be at Down The Rabbit Hole. Unsafe sex and forced sex are more likely to happen under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Please respect, help and look after each other.

Sexual violence and harassment in any shape or form are never tolerated at DTRH. If you feel threatened in any way, please tell our security or first-aid staff. They can connect you with a dedicated supervisor in our organisation for assistance. All security employees are trained for this and know how to help you.

Female security staff will be available at the festival and there are experts at every first-aid post that will take good care of you. Want to get in touch online? That’s possible too. Livecrowd can help you directly during the festival through our app and you can send an e-mail to jump@downtherabbithole.nl. Please note that this e-mail will not be monitored continuously during the festival. It’s also possible to report to the police. Our staff can help you with that. Obviously your reports will be handled with the utmost discretion.

+ Drugs and alcohol
_ Drugs and alcohol Drugs are prohibited by law, Down The Rabbit Hole is no exception. You may be checked for possession of hard and soft drugs upon entering the festival. You will be handed over to the police if our staff finds out you’re carrying drugs. This may result in a hefty fine or even worse, depending on the amount you carry.

Did you use drugs anyway and don’t feel well? Go directly to the nearest first-aid post or ask our staff for help. Explain what happened as clearly as possible to enable staff to help you in the best way possible. Don’t be afraid to tell them that you are under the influence of drugs, because our medical staff operates discretely and is bound to medical confidentiality. They will not report you to the police.

We assume you know the risks of drugs and alcohol, but be aware that the risks are higher at temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius. Alcohol and drugs tend to raise your body temperature, so if you don’t drink enough and dance a lot, the risk of overheating increases. Make sure you drink enough water or other non-alcoholic beverages – 2 glasses per hour will do – but not too much at once. Water poisoning is as deadly as overheating due to alcohol/drugs usage.

Want to use drugs anyway? Make sure you test your drugs before heading to the festival, watch out for each other and don’t abandon your fellow festival friends. For more information and risks, check www.unity.nl.
+ The afterparty
_ The afterparty Unsafe sex and forced sex are more likely to happen under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Please respect, help and look after each other.

The use of alcohol and/or drugs may influence your ability to concentrate and react, making you a potential danger for other road users. Know your limits and choose a mode of transport that is the most responsible fit for the state you’re in.

Bear in mind that it takes hours before alcohol levels in your body have dropped to legally acceptable levels for the road. A few hours of sleep before driving may not be enough.

Free hangover tip: make sure you have a glass of water or isotonic drink before you go to sleep to balance your hydration levels.
