At each performance, a team of professional stage guard will be disposal.

First-aid personnel, nurses, doctors, fire department and police will be on duty during the whole festival and all these authorities’ works closely together during the festival.

The festivals security team should be seen as a service team and they are able to estimate a risk and handle from that.

A positive attitude for the above is expected, as both the artist and the festival will be promoted.
